      India Visit - where to go in December?

      India Nov 27, 2016 at 3:11 AM

      Hi,

      Hopefully I will reach Kolkata airport on 16th Dec, 2016 with my family (my 2 kids and wife). One of my kid is 11 years and other is 7 years.

      We have a holiday 10 - 12 days. My wife likes to visit Taj Mahal, Agra.

      After that we like to visit naturally beautiful places and want to spend few days there; such as - hill areas or sea shores.
      In India, my plan is to travel long distant places by train.

      On my way back, we would like to stay in Kolkata 1 / 2 days. We have tried to make a plan but cannot do that ourselves.

      It would be great help if we get hints how to make our trip worth and enjoyable in India.

      Thanks,

      Shariful Alam
