I had the most fabulous time in India!

Jump to last reply

I have just come back after my trip from India and haven't stoped dreaming about this beautiful country. I dream to go back again. This time I visited the Northern India and got my first taste of the real royalty. Rajasthan specially Udaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Devgarh and Jaipur were so very fascinating and exciting destinations. Agra and Taj Mahal were the cherry on the pie. But none of these had prepared me for my Benaras trip. This place is mystical. The Bathing and Burning Ghats were a moving experience, and can I ever be more lucky that I took the option of visiting Khajuraho, they have made sculptures out of Kama Sutra, those temples were for real sprituality and sexuality so serenly existing together and then a ride to the Pandav falls was just divine.

One word of advice don't take a group tour that way you lose upon a lot of fun and adventure. Traveling alone or two people is not at all expensive. The hotels are very reasonably priced average rate for a four star hotel with facilities like attached bath, swimming pool, bar television and telephone is USD 50-70 for two on bed and breakfast.

One more thing book your hotels and if possible your guided tours in advance, it would save you lots of time and arguments with Cabbies, and hustlers.

I booked my tour 20 days before I began and was nervous about using a travel agent but from pick-up to drop it was a piece of cake. Most fulfilling.

The best are the peope, almost every body is so nice and approachable. I was scared with the problems that erupted in Gujrat but our Driver gave us so much of confidence, he would not go back to his hotel to sleep but park the car in our hotel so that we can be on the move anytime it is required. Most dependable were our agents, every evening they called us whereever we were. May be long distance calls are cheap in India but we felt so much cared for. Very touching.

I have my tour itinerary with me in case any fellow travelers would like to have a copy just mail to me at Siv99_[email protected] and I would forward it to you. Also my agents address and e-mail. Two gentle souls in a gentle country. Let me know.

bye
Siv
