Beware of pickpockets as this is a major tourist city in India.
- Traffice is chaotic (this is India, so it is the norm).
- Touts are very aggressive, especially at attractions such as the Agra Fort. The roadside sellers are very persistent and it is quite difficult to shake them off.
- Beware of fake items, especially the marble souvenirs. If you buy from roadside sellers, most likely the items are fake and made of chalk instead of marble. Better to buy from reputable shops even though you have to pay more.
- Remember to always bargain and slash the price as low as possible, because the prices quoted have been inflated many times (especially roadside sellers, camel rides, trishaw rides etc).
- When locals offer you help e.g. helping you to take photos, it does not come free and they will ask you for money after that. This practice seems to be the norm in India.
- You can try the roadside food, but be mentally prepared that it may cause diarrhoea especially if you are prone to it.
