    ty.... can you suggest some other worthwhile "week long" packages in India ?

    week in ANDAMAN/Lakshadweep (only sight seeing, no water sports like snorkelling) is one more that comes to my mind....

    and i think the "forest bunglow" bit in #9, should have been a seperate option in itself - we have a lot of "animal / wildlife / bird santuary" options in this country from the rhino tours in Kaziranga, the Elephant trips in Periyar, Lions in Gir, Tigers in Sundarbans, Ranthambore, Bhandavgarh, Corbett and Kanha + others too.

    In this poll i'll have to go with the circuit in MP or Orissa...i love the old Indian Cities..i'd love to Nalanda AND/OR Takshashila...
    My other option wud have been camel safari in the desert...basically i love remote places....:):)....anyone (watches/used to watch) lonely planet here?...i just love it...:)

    <----------- full time lonely planeter

    ps : it will be tough to put nalanda and takshila in one "circuit"... better is nalanda-vikramshila (off bhagalpur, in bihar)

    wow maen , :shock:

    thats really great , i wish i could explore india as much as you have done , in india i ve been to juss few places , mostly i travell cos of work and i hardly get anytime to leisure around but surely i work with pleasure , so no regrets ... ;)

    anyways , i ve been to
    bombay ( have a house there )

    my main idea of holiday in india is sleep till afternoons , wake up around 10 / 11 ish - after lunch , go out shopping / movies etc etc ...

    come back by evening , going out for some nice place / joints for drinks n dinner , come back home - chat with friends , family , folks and fade the nite away with some liquer or wine ...
