Overview

Welcome To Agra
From idyllic, unspoilt beaches with turquoise seas and pure, white sands to bustling cities sporting exotic markets and a vibrant, colourful nightlife, it is easy to see why Thailand has become one of the most popular tourist destinations for the adventurous and young at heart.
The size and geographical diversity of Thailand provides for a variety of activities. Snorkelling, diving and a host of watersports are very popular around the Islands, while inland enthusiasts can trek into the mountains or cycle across the flat river areas of the northeast.
There is so much to see and do in Thailand that few visitors can resist returning. With an expansive coast line and gorgeous tropical islands, Thailand is justly famed for its wonderful beaches and laid-back lifestyle. Inland there are the iconic sights of lush jungles, rolling hills and rice paddies. As a country of Buddhists, there is also an abundance of golden temples and beautiful, spiritually-inspired architecture. One word of caution though: to avoid the common fate of temple fatigue, don't try to see too much. Rather concentrate on a few key attractions and spend some quality time in each of them.

A British tourist jumped from her hotel room in Agra today, allegedly to avoid being molested by the owner of the hotel early this morning.The 30-year-old jumped from the balcony on the first floor of the Agra Mahal Hotel and was taken to a hospital with leg injuries. She has been moved to another hotel now; tomorrow she will be brought to Delhi.
 
The hotel owner, Sachin Chauhan, has been arrested, and the ministry of Tourism has cancelled the hotel's license. (Read: Tourism Minister Chiranjeevi seeks safety of tourists) Police have also sealed the hotel. "Earlier we had pressed charges of assault, now we have also added the charge of attempt to rape... the hotel is being sealed," said Ashutosh Pandey, Inspector General Agra Range.The UK Embassy is in touch with the victim and has offered her counsular access and assistance.
 
 
Agra SSP Subhash Chand Dubey said that the woman had earlier rejected the hotel owner's overtures offering a massage. He allegedly then returned to her room at 4 am under the pretext of the morning wake up call, then returned around 4:40am and refused to leave. He kept knocking at her door and according to the British tourist he was accompanied by a security guard. When he refused to leave, she felt she was left with no option but to escape from the balcony.
 
"Women should use caution when travelling in India. Reported cases of sexual assault against women and young girls are increasing; recent sexual attacks against female visitors in tourist areas and cities show that foreign women are also at risk. A Swiss national suffered a serious sexual attack in Madhya Pradesh on 16 March. Women travellers should exercise caution when travelling in India even if they are travelling in a group," the advisory said.
 
 
The splendour of AGRA – capital of all India under the Mughals – remains undiminished, from the massive fort to the magnificent Taj Mahal. Along with Delhi and Jaipur, Agra is the third apex of the "Golden Triangle", India's most popular tourist itinerary. It fully merits that status; the Taj effortlessly transcends all the frippery and commercialism that surrounds it, and continues to have a fresh and immediate impact on all who see it. That said, Agra city itself is huge and disorienting.
