We are a family of four traveling to India in December. We have 20 travel days to play with. Want to see as much as possible but on a budget. Any recommended tour companies? Want to definitely see the Delhi area, a short trip to perhaps Kathmandu and a flight or train south if possible for a week or so on a nice beach somewhere. Doable? Any recommendations are welcome and appreciated.
P.S. traveling from Japan, so would also appreciate budget air recommendations.
your travel plan seems to be nice. I guess 20 days is good, if you manage to cross the country frm noth to south by any domestic airline. There are a chocie of cheap airlines operatin these days like www.airdeccan.net, www.spicejet.com, www.goair.in ..etc.
I would suggest you to have a trip Kerala while travelling to south. Google 'Kerala' and you would get some valuble information on this tropical paradise. My favorite is a village called 'Kuzhupilly' which is 24 km from Cochin. This village is very unique with the lagoons, backwaters, shrimp farms and a long strech of golden sandy beach.
There is a beach house here run by the Kuruvilla's family which the most popular and only accomodation in this region. An ideal place if you are looking out for little off-beat non commercial place. The people in the village are mostly fishermen and amazingly friendly.
Wishing you a great vaccation.
I think you can visit Kathmandu for a few days during ur 20 day India trip.But your enitre program has to be planned out thoroughly. Regarding itinaries you can contact Ms.Nupur at e-mail: [Ed: e-mail address removed]

Have a Nice Trip !

India is a real good place where you can enjoy everything for a reasonable rate..but you cant expect the same in cities like bangalore , mumbai and delhi..Bangalore is damn expensive.. but in India one good thing is,,,, you can spend your night in a domitory costing around $1 per night or the same night for $200 ...it depends on where you stay...if you are travelling southern part of india like kerala, tamilnadu... i can suggest you some good and reasonable places to stay..pls ping me ...if you are travelling south...i can mail you all the details..
