      Please don't go to Agra, it's worst place(pollution, cheap crowd, lot of eve teasing). For nature try going to Himachal Pradesh such as Shimla, Prashar Lake, Mussoorie etc.

    • Just stay away from Kashmir, my Indian gf tells me of raging insurgency going on there.

      True, stay away from Kashmir, famous for terrorism and shithole demonstrating people.

      Wtf, taj mahal is in Agra, not Delhi.

      Op, try going to Rajasthan. Amazing food, lot of forts and history.
      Kerala, western ghats are good for nature.
      Himachal is great for mountains.

  • I have been to Taj Mahal, and a lot of sites in around Delhi. Great food around old Delhi area. Jaipur was great as well. Shimla/Manali was just fine, IMO Lake Tahoe and Seirra area is more beautiful.

    Now be careful while you travel in India. I had company of my Indian gf. First beware of beggars, second India is very violent place - you have be very aware of your surroundings. Don’t go out late in the night. People will try to rip you off. But to be fair, some folks are super nice amd helpful, but don’t expect them to help you if you get into trouble. From my experience if you get into argument over money, just pay and move on. Don’t expect police to help- they mostly corrupt.

      Good observation and analysis. This should be suggested reading for all tourists.

      Have you really experienced it or just heard or advised such?
      Yes, some police men are corrupt but you will find in general helpful people.
      In fact you will find people overly helpful if you are a non-Indian.
      You may feel over helpfulness is like stalking but they are genuinely over helpful. Except those whose livelihoods depend on tourists like any other country/tourist place.

      I don't mean to invalidate your experiences, but perhaps "Violent" is too strong a word.

    • First hand report. Beggars fighting with each other over money you gave then. Fighting with iron rods and infront of cops who just cheer them for more [sickest thing I have seen my entire life]. Tells that there is no value of human life in that part of the world.

      Taxi drivers literally threatening us to pay a lot more than what the actual amount was, and if you argue a threatening mob collects around you. So just pay and move on. Cops were nearby but simply looked the other way. Foreigners are fair game.

      This was not just my experience, I stayed in a five star hotel and most of the foreigners who were there on official visit dreaded going out alone. They rather spend their time hanging out in the hotel lobby. If they needed to go out shopping then hotel used to provide its own shuttle with helper to go out with.

      Don’t mean to scare but you need to be very aware of your surroundings.

      If you are female then please don’t go to India alone.

    You will have a good time in India OP. But if you are a female, don’t go out alone after dusk. I think South India is safer compared to Northern Indian provinces.
    Dec 31, 20181
    • If you are female I would say don’t go at all.
      Dec 31, 2018
  • I’ve been there three times.

    My advice? Don’t go there.

    I would advice to stay away from Delhi, UP, Bihar(if you are a girl, please don’t go there). I am surprised no one suggested east India. East India is so beautiful. If you are into Indian sculptors, visit the temples in southern part of the country. Jaipur is a nice place too.

    +1 for Jaipur. Checkout tripadvisor for things to do in Jaipur. Since they’ve been catering to tourists for so long, they’ve gotten rather good at it
    Dec 30, 20180
  • Microsoft ramare
    Rajasthan and Gujarat for historical (400 years and older) forts, desert festivals, camels, palaces.
    Lookup Udaipur and Kutch in particular, they are well suited for 1st time tourists.

    Several other interesting in these states too eg Chitaur fort, Ranakpur temples, Jaisalmer deserts, Gir lions, Diu forts.

    Winters(Nov to Feb) are the best time to visit due to nice weather.

    Definitely check either Ladakh or , Kerala for scenic places . These places are still pristine and have saved themselves from modernisation! Definitely worth a visit there to see nature!

    My fav experience has been the forts in Rajasthan - jaipur/jodhpur/udaipur and teh natural beauty of the west coast towns in kerala and karnataka. Don't miss traveling by train - great experience to meet locals and super cheap.

    Since you like travel so much, take your entire travel bag, shine it up nice. Keep shining it up real nice. Then turn it sideways and stick it straight up your candy a&$

    I would suggest focusing on one part of the country. Either North and Northeast, North and a bit of West, or South. If you want to hit all the main tourist spots in India, it would be too much in my experience and you would spend more time traveling than actually enjoying.

    Depending on your previous travels and cultural/geo background, you can pick. Also, season of the year will have a big say on where to visit (monsoons are hard to visit/travel but it has its own charm)

    If you are visiting in Jan-Mar timeframe, especially towards the end of Spring / beginning of Summer Rajasthan state will be beautiful and you can also then either go to Mumbai, Goa in Southwest or Delhi Agra and some hill stations nearby in North.

    There is an island off the bay of bengal. It is pristine nature with friendly sentinelise people. But getting there won’t be easy. You have to pay off fishermen some money.

    Depends on what you like. Do you like slums, party, culture, nature, history, food, etc.? There are different places for each
