      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

      Punjab itinerary

      State of Punjab Jul 4, 2016 at 12:47 PM

      We are planning a trip in Punjab, but I am not sure it will be interesting enough for foreigners. we are a couple over 50's and we have been many times in India.
      our planning is Amritsar - Bhatinda - Kapurthala - Jalandhar or Patiala - Anadpur Sahib - Chandigarh.
      We suppose the best is to rent a car with driver for all itinerary, starting in Amritsar.
      Does anyone know this area? because we couldn't find much information in the classic guides.
      I will appreciate a lot if some know a reliable agency in Amritsar to make the planning.
      Another idea is going to Manali, but the trip is too long
