India!!!! It changes your thinking about yourself and this world. You will enter a world of total chaos, cows, people, dust, ricksawwallahs, flys, noises, beggars, poverty everywhere.

You will smell food, cowshit, exhaustgasses and incense all in tha mix.

Colors everywhere. It totally works on all sences. Its a drug to me. You realize that you are addicted at the time you fly out the freaking India. And then mother India will suck you back, and you can't resist. Believe me....

If you want to feel and experience a totally different culture, then India is the answer. Nowhere you can see the richest and the poorest side by side, Nowhere you can hear people speaking different languages in one city, nowhere you can see the friendliness and hospitlity of people no matter whether they are poor or rich.
It's different..you have to experience it atleast once.

Hi, I think you can choose India. After that, come to visit the Mt. Everest through Nepal. Tibet of China is a mystic place with a long history. I think you cannot miss it when you travel in Asia. ;)

If you want an Indian experience, I would go to India....on the other hand.....if you want to experience Thailand, I would suggest the Thailand is a good option.
It's up to you really...

India is one of the most amazing, diverse, culturally devout, spectacular, exhilarating, mystical and adventure filled highlights of world travel.

As a westerner going there, it is a brave new world. Himalayas, Jungles, deserts, beaches....it has everything.

Thailand does not even come close. Theres no travel experience that you could have in Thailand that India couldn't better.

Hello Keefer

India wins hands down, for me.
It is the ultimate travel experience.
