      Travel to Shimla and near other places

      Shimla 10 hours ago

      Hi,

      I and my family (wife, 2 kids - 11 years and 7 years) will reach Shimla on 17-Dec-2016. We will start from Delhi to Shimla at around 8 AM by rented Car. This is the first first we will visit that area. Need to book our hotels there.

      1. Pls. let us know which area of Shimla will be good place to stay for us (new tourists)? I mean where many tourists stay.

      2. We heard that Kufri is also an attractive place to visit. In that case, should we stay directly in Kufri instead of Shimla?

      3. Is Manali usually colder than Shimla (asking for expert opinion though I am following weather there)? What are the good place in Manali to stay (like what I mean above).

      Thanks.

      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,
