    Hints for travelling to India?

    Your interests should determine your itinerary. In general, an India trip should ideally be of at least 3-4 weeks length to take in this diverse country. The grand monuments in Delhi and Lucknow built by the Mughals and nawabs gives you an idea of what India was in medieval to early modern times, also the period of its greatest achievements. 3-4 days in Delhi, a couple in Lucknow and a day in Agra for Taj Mahal will take about a week on this leg of the trip. Explore Himalayas, the tallest range in the world and take in the sights for about a week . You could go to Uttarakhand from Delhi or Lucknow and go to places such as Kausani or Ranikhet with Nainital or Almora as the base town. Or you may go to Himachal with Simla as your base town. You can head west to explore the vibrant Mumbai city - the commercial capital and then move on to spend a few days in some great Konkan beaches (such as Tarkarli in Malvan region) or go directly to Goa, a unique town with a Portuguese heritage. 2 days in Mumbai and 5 in Konkan / Goa. You could spend a few days in the desert state of Rajasthan or you may go to South using Bangalore as the anchor and exploring Mysore etc. I can provide you a more specific itinerary with interests and priorities and duratiojn in mind. over 10 years ago

    Anyone know a website advertising motorbikes for sale in India? Where's the best place to buy/ sell?

    The website: http://www.royalenfield.com as the previous response shows has got all dealers' addresses and details about international sales and private imports - everything you need to know. It's highly patronised by foreign (non-Indian) clients and it seems the co. is trying, quite fairly, to build a legend around it, like Harley. Hasnain about 11 years ago

    What to do with spare time in Delhi?

    You can take a short half an hour ride to the Pragati Maidan area - there you can have a look at Crafts museum (http://nationalcraftsmuseum.nic.in/) followed by a stroll at Old Fort which is nearby. (You can take Delhi metro train to go to that area. Just catch it from Karol Bagh and change at Rajiv chowk, get down at Pragati Maidan, avoid peak time until 10.30). If you still have some more time, you can visit Dilli Haat near AIIMS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dilli_Haat) which is another 20 minutes by a metro train. about 10 years ago
