Hello,
Me and my friend are planning traveling to India for one month in November. I was checking where is the best to go and when but I still didn't decided. I really like North Sikkim like Darjeeling, Gangtok. I am not sure for how long is the best to stay in this area and then maybe continue to Delhi, Jaipur, Udaipur or Goa in the end. Or is it too much? Can anyone please reccomend me whats the best visit after North Sikkim?
Or my second idea just Goa and Kerala maybe Sri Lanka and back to Thailand where we will continue.
Our budget is 2000 together we would like to see as much as we can. How much money can we spend in food per month? And should I book the train tickets and accomodation in advance?

Thank you for your advice.

Welcome to Indiamike forum Cathe

November is a great time for visiting India as you will get pleasant weather in most parts of India with the north Himalayan regions starting to cool a bit but not really winter yet. The choices regarding where to spend your available month in India are endless and it makes sense that you follow your desire and visit the few places that you like.

You should of course go to the Darjeeling/Sikkim region as you love it and I think a week or about 10 days should be fine for the Darjeeling/Gangtok stay.

After the above you have mentioned Delhi, Jaipur, Udaipur, Goa, Kerala and all are fine and can be visited in the available about 20 days but visiting them all will be a hectic pace and a bit "too much" as you have mentioned.

A slower pace would be to select only the Delhi-Jaipur-Udaipur region after Sikkim or only the Goa-Kerala area after Sikkim and if Goa-Kerala then maybe Sri Lanka also after Kerala before getting back to Thailand.

Don't book accommodation in advance since your plans are not finalized and generally there is plenty of accommodation in tourist areas that you are planning to visit and also it is good to inspect the rooms and pick something that you like and it suits your budget.

Train tickets in India are hard to get if you need to travel on a specific date and in your favourite travel class but again not possible to book train tickets while you are still developing your India travel plans.

Is Kolkata your entry city in India since you are coming from Thailand ?

Our Indiamike experts can help you in selecting trains between places but you need to first decide on your options which after Sikkim are:

1. Do all (Delhi-Jaipur-Udaipur-Goa-Kerala)
2. North India only (Delhi-Jaipur-Udaipur)
3. South India only (Goa-Kerala)
4. maybe Delhi-Goa-Kerala since Delhi is a convenient transportation hub and most likely you will have to come to Delhi after Sikkim for Goa-Kerala.

And also decide if you have time for Sri Lanka also.

I like Goa/Kerala but Delhi with its history and architecture is also worth it if you have not been to Delhi plus Delhi has flight connections to Bangkok and flight/train connection to all parts of India.

I hope this helps a bit.
India is crazy and delightful and amusing (most of the time) !

Good Luck with your India trip planning

Is Darjeeling still such a great place? Someone posted not long ago how they disliked it. I think it was that PeterJones guy.And other people agreed. Gangtok get's good reviews.

And there is beautiful nature everywhere in India. From the north to the south.

And since your already in a tropical place with beautiful beaches and going back there you might prefer a change of scenery. Like the mountains in the north or deserts of Rajasthan or..............the list is large.

Well, I didn't agree. But didn't oppose on the thread because I was staying away from those threads for different reasons.
Darjeeling , as a town has it's own charm , but if you love nature then the whole Darjeeling hills is a treasure trove, nearby places like Lepchajagat and Takdah are pristine.
I would so love to see nature lovers there.
