Hello everybody !

New here !!

We just decided yesterday to go to India for 3 weeks, leaving end of january or begin of february if we catch some tickets...

We want to end in Goa for the last 5-7 days and of course we want to see the Taj Mahal !!

But wat more must we do ? And what are the possibilities in this short time ?

Thanks for all your tips !

From what I hear--you definitely shouldn't miss Rathambore! It is a National Park and Tiger Preserve. If you want to have a private jeep tour, you do need to book this 60 days in advance!!! Otherwise, I think it is on a larger open bus which tend to be noisier and scare away the animals--but that is what I have to do as I did not know this rule.

Jaisalmer was actually rated in as "One of the 10 places to visit before you die!" in some publication.

I will be leaving in 3 days and will try to let you know how it goes. We also are going for 3 weeks and doing Delhi, Agra and Rajasthan.

You are quite likely to be overwhelmed by possibilities. You can't make a bad decision, really, as long as you keep it simple. and not try to see too much.

Just being in India seems to leave the biggest impression the first time. All the little things- food, sound, smells, mannerisms, and the like. AND of course, Indians, which really is what India's all about.

general route:
start in Delhi. prep for Taj @ Humayun's tomb there
hit the Taj a few days later
Hit a few spots in Rajasthan on your way south
say- Rathambore, Udaipur and Mt. Abu
dont waste time in Mumbai except to fly back home from there

2-3 days in Goa is plenty (for me)
in fact, it's somewhat out of the way

Oh, the things you'll see!
