I really liked visiting the erotic temples in Khajuraho.
It's not too far from Delhi (I think you cant get a good deal on airfare from Delhi to Benares with free stops in Agra & Khajuraho). Rajistan is great (very colorful), you'll see a little of it when visit Jaipur.
Sunrise on the Ganges in Benares is also a memorable experience.
i arrive to India this time next week. Excited but so nervous. I have about 20days. flight is into Delhi and out of Mumbai. so the plan is, Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, Goa and then Mumbai. Is this possible? can anybody recommend anywhere goo to stay in Delhi where I can meet other travellers? I really want to meet over people. Is it OJ to wear shorts etc as its 43 degrees. Not just to this in Ireland. Sorry for the hundreds of questions.....but looking forward to it....just not sure what to expect? Whats the best way to get from the airport to my hostel/hotel. Taxis and roughly how much should this cost. any information would be greatly appreciated and if anybody is about during these dates....please let me know!!
i'm leaving for India soon for 3 weeks. Going to Delhi, Jaipur, Darjeeling (perhaps), Agra, Goa, and Chennai. What i shouldn't miss?
Also, I'd be arriving in Delhi past midnight. Is it safe to go to my hostel by myself?
It is safe, but hiring a pre pay cab is affordable.
Bring a lot of food (instand noodles,etc...) you will miss them so much after 1-2 weeks.
