Good day guys! My name is Coco. I am from the Netherlands. I am planning to travel in North India for the first time. I will be flying to New Delhi on the 15 th of April and return to Europe on the May 1st 2011.

From New Delhi, I am opened to go to any places as long as it fits in a 2 weeks planning max.

I want to combine my trip with meeting nice people & preferrably share some good moments together. So far I am travelling alone and I gave myself a month to find some travelling buddies. It would be nice to get in touch with people feeling like sharing two weeks of ther life in India with me .

Let me know. Reply to this

Hi Coco, you might want to try out North East India for a two week trip. Its definitely one of the most beautiful regions in India with a variety of wild life and mountains to look at. I would suggest Kaziranga national Park (Assam), Shillong and Cherrapunji (Meghalaya) and Tawang (Arunachal Pradesh) as your itinerary locations. You can contact Luit Holidays travel site for details. Reply to this

i would suggest go up to some places in himachal or uttarkhand..rajasthan will be a hot and dry during the time..u can visit macleodganj in himachal pradesh with lots of back packers where u might find a travell companion for the rest of the trip..u can visit manali, kasol, and trek to malana...if u r interested...or else you can go to rishikesh in uttarkhand and relax and practise some yoga...happy travels..

your plan seems good...but i feel 3 days in shimla is a little longer considering its just a small town and can be done at max in 2 days...and even mumbai sems a little longer..you can add the remaining days to your goa plan..if not you can also visit places like gokarna and karwar near to goa..i suggest be flexible with your schedule..follow your heart...rest assured u will have a great stay...gud luck..

Hi COCO,

Hope you have come to India earlier too,,otherwise comming to India and not visiting Taj Mahal, so if this is the first time you should visit Taj Mahal. Can do same day tour to Agar from Delhi or can stay overnight in Agra to as there you will find hotels of all budgets.

Going to Goa at this time of year will be a bit hot for you as you are comming for a very cold place, but its ok to stay in there for couple of days to have a feel of the city.

Also should visit the capital city of Rajasthan - Jaipur to see the City Palace Museum and Janter Manter (a unique observatory in the world), Hawa Mahal and Amer Fort. Can also visit Choki Dhani in the evening for traditional rajasthan meal served in Rajasthan style and an Rajasthani village kind of set up.

Suggest the following route:

15 april - Arrival in Delhi
16 april - Delhi - visit the old Delhi and New Delhi parts- must visit Raj Ghat, Jamma Masjid, Chandani Chok Mkt., take a Rickshaw ride around Red Fort Area and passing though the busy and narrow street of old Delhi an experience.India Gate, Sansad Bhavan, Rastrapati Bhawan and other government buildings. Can also see a sound of light show at the Old Fort or Red Fort in the evening at 1900 hrs onward.

17 april - Delhi
visit the New Delhi part visit the Qutab Minar, Lotus Temple (bhai temple), Humayun's tomb, Akshardam Temple and in the evening visit the Sikh Temple - Gurudwara Bangala Sahib, Sacred Heart Cathedral and Birla Mandir (Laxmi Narayan temple) to attend the evening Hindu prayer - all in close vacinity.

18 april - Chandigarh, visiting some of the parks in town

19 april - Chandigarh to Kalka and then take a toy train to Shimla

20 april - Shimla - visit the Jhaku Temple and old Imperial Buildings and spend the evening time at the Mall where all the town & tourists gather.

21 april - Shimla - Delhi

22 april - Delhi - Agra

23 april - Agra - Jaipur

24 april - Jaipur - Delhi - Mumbai

25 april - Mumbai - must see Prince of Whales Museum, Elephenta caves, Chopati, Marine drive and if interested can also see some Bollywood film shooting at some film studio.

26 april - Mumbai - Goa - flight

27 april - Goa - visit North Goa

28 april - Goa - Visit South Goa

29 april - Goa

30 april - Goa -Delhi flight

Ho Coco,

I agree with Ashu - Taj Mahal, Agra and Jaipur is amazing ;-) Worth seeing much more than Mumbai or even Goa ;-) I recommend Palolem Beach in Goa - just a paradise;-)

Enjoy,

I recommend <snip>. The organization of the trip was excellent. The hotel selection was very good; generally a very good location of the hotels with respect to areas of interest. ISTA in Bangalore was certainly the best quality hotel and the Windermere Estate just being fabulous. The staff at the Arches in Kochi was incredibly nice and friendly and made the stay really memorable.The Kerala Backwaters were another highlight. The wildlife view in Periyar is basically a waste of time. You will see some birds, but that's it.I am very pleased with <snip> services and I also recommended this company to my friends in California.

The only negative of the trip: I understand that contributions from preferred companies/vendors/stores are important for the guides and for agent. But the constant push is very annoying. I have been to India and many other countries before and I came to India to show my wife the sights and the beauty of India, not to buy goods from generally overprized stores.

Here is the link to there website <snip>

To Ashu ...
I did not really worked out any cost part. I thought about taking enough money with me.
As far as accomodations are concern, I can go from anything for free up to € 40.00 per night.
For food & beverages, I will have to do with what I find where I find it.

Travelling around will certainly cost me more. In my first two days in Delhi, I will try to figure out more regardings my travel plan, cost and time frame.

Thanks for proposing your help.

To Marcelo,

Thank you for sharing your opinion mate ... as far as I am concerned I am not going to spend any moneys on materialistic stuff, so they can try as much as they want sell me goods.

The only one I might pay for are foods, accomodations & transports all to be consumed within 8 hours :-)

I will try to stay polite thought ... and kindly say: "I have this one already, but thank you"

To Deepark.

Hi Sir, Good to hear from you. Myabe you could give me some hints about the use of mobile phone in India:
- Should I take a Sim-card from my country and it would work in India?
- Or is it better/easier to use an India phone Sim-card while I am in India?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Coco

Dear Coco

Thanks for your message yes i will prefer you shd use India Sim card as there are many schemes are going on and will cost you very cheap.

For taking above facility in India you have to give photocopy of passport/Visa Copy/two photograph to the Concern Person.

Regards

Deepak
