Clueless and headed to India
 
I've been traveling around Asia for 2 months and I'm flying out of Mumbai on December 15 to the states, it's the end of my trip. Currently I'm in Laos, I plan to return to Bangkok within a week and fly to India, it looks like Calcutta is the cheapest place to fly to, though I'm flexible.

Any idea about what to see/do in about three weeks? I'm looking around the site, but it's a bit overwhelming.

All suggestions greatly appreciated.

Much thanks,
Wanderir

Depends a lot upon what you want to experience - whether you want to see the mountains - go to the beach or experience religion or culture. Make up your mind and let us know so we can help you better

Three weeks is enough time to see one part of India reasonably well. Your options would be:

1. Do the popular tourist circuit of Delhi - Agra (Taj Mahal) - Jaipur. This is what the majority of first-time visitors to India would do

2. See places in and around Calcutta, perhaps including the Buddhist circuit and / or a visit to the Sun Temple at Konark. This would be the cheapest option if you are landing in Calcutta and are on a budget. I am from Calcutta and can provide you further details if you have anything specific you'd like to see

3. Spend time in the south of India on a tour of temples. Not common but many of the southern temples are over a thousand years old each and have unique architecture and styles

Options 1 and 3 would involve additional flights. Option 2 could be accomplished through rail travel, though I recommend booking tickets well in advance

i do agree with first reply. you must let other kknow what sort of places you want do and see. india has got a vast no. of places knows for their own attractions likes of mountains or beaches or cultures. this make rest more comfortable to post a more right answers.
