Agra, India (map)
3rd wives get all the best gifts or at least this was the case if you had been married to Shah Jahan back in 1632. Shah built this beautiful Wonder of the World in memory of his late wife Mumtaz Mahal after she passed away during child birth; and what are you getting your wife for Christmas this year?
Unlike other great tourist attractions we visited around the world the crowds for the Taj Mahal were actually greater in the streets of Agra than they were once you passed through pearly white gates; which made for a fun all day affair of relaxing on the grounds of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort away from the hustle and bustle of the India streets.
