Never been to India and would like to travel around the holiday. Need some help as to where to start and what to do. Of course thinking the Golden triangle, but there is so much there and I know that there is so much to see. It's quite overwhelming - even the searches on the internet is too much. I do know I want to see the Taj Mahaj, and the Tiger Reserve. I would like to see Goa but thinking that might have to be another trip unless I can somehow customize it without it costing me a fortune to get down there and back home (airfare will cost me a fortune from the states alone).
Need some help and advice please. Also may be traveling alone (again) as my friend has backed out, how safe is it for women? Any advice would be welcomed please!
to answer ur last question first ..as i have many times out here . .India is as safe/unsafe as any other country in the world..but that does not mean one is not cautious..always help..some advice for women in india is to dress up well & not too scanty unless of course u r at a beach...also helps to be in crowded places and avoid lonely streets..like in any other city.
If u pik up a lonely planet on india .. explains quite a few do's n dont's...might help. Lived all my life n never experienced anything bad..while in barcelona had my wallet flicked..so any place is unpredictable.
Ok now to the places you want to visit...key questions
1. how much time
2. how much money
3. what u'd like to see ...
that would help decide how much u can see.
Tho' uve got a few spots bang on..The Taj mahal...a tiger reserve & goa..must do's
Which tiger reserve are you plannin on? are a few here...would suggest Kanha National Park, Madhya Pradesh..Rudyard Kipplings Jungle Book inspiration..and you got to stay at a place called Baghira Log huts , govt owned..inside the forest area..one of my super travel expereiences...the reserve..if you want to know more...can defy give you a few pointer's there.
Let me know on the 2 questions and may be i can add a bit of advice.
I am going to be India in December, I havent firmed up my plans yet, but I should be around the Delhi region at that time. Also a female traveller alone. What are your plans? do you have a date in mind. Message me and we'l have a chat. x
