Hola,

It isn't really a debate topic. I wasn't sure where to ask... I see lot of people from India here... so, I ask. What are good places in India to visit? I am not a party animal ... so, any artsy, architectural, fun places .... Big smile

Hmm, as I write this... am reminded of a comment by my parents.... they think that India is one of the most unsafe country, where nobody respects the law, and 'dangerous' place for a girl or even a boy to go around all alone. Is it really that bad??? HOw do you live? are you not fearful of being attacked or something? Ouch

Looking fwd. to hear answers.

Do you have any specific city or state in mind?? Or are you asking for India in general??

As for your parent's comments, it's li'l true for New Delhi though not completely. If you are talking about any other city, they are quite safe and nothing special occurs there which doesn't happen in other countries.

No we don't live in constant fear or something. Some of the cities like Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Chennai are very safe for girls. I'm travelling alone to different cities from the age of 15 and you're already 22, so why should you be afraid. However, before you come to India try to know the small things about the country which will keep you safe especially theft e.g. if you're travelling by train don't accept food offered by co-passengers, don't wear too many jewelleries when you're travelling by public transport, etc.

So you're now officially promoting UP tourism LOL I think now Maya will come and say visit Kerala- god's own country, QT will say visit Puna with its controlled climate and rich Maratha history and Tania will vote for Hyderabad with its famous architecture and Biriyani.

BTW apart from the various historical places and buildings I also liked the look of the whole city, it has an old worldly charm about it. And I loved the Railway Station building of Lucknow, specially the old part with its fort like structure. I've heard Lucknow has changed much in recent times, haven't been there for quite some time now.

Let me promote some AP tourism here.LOL

Ofcourse Hyderabad with its architecture, Charminar, Golconda forts, the assembly building( although new) is good too, the Qutubshahi tombs.

Salar jung museum is one of a kind one man collection.

And then Amaravati temples are awesome too.

For nature lovers, go to Araku.

You missed Tirupati Tirumalai.Smile

Well, I was planning to go down to Bangalore, but had to give in.... compromised to go to punjab/chandigarh instead. So, any places here.. I still hope to make a detour to Bangalore.... hmm, so any places in between will do, too I guess.Big smile ... I still don't get to go alone, but I guess I should be grateful that I can at least go.Confused

Hmm, thank you for the advice!!! I don't wear jewelary, so no threat thereLOL... I have heard about thefts, will be careful, and leave extra stuff back at homeEmbarrassed.... as silly as it might sound, I would have thought of 'giving food' as a nice gesture than take it as threat... thanks for the warning, now I will be extra careful. Actually, starting to realize that I hardly see 'wrong' in somebody's actions.ConfusedOuch... and why my parents are concerned.

Again, thanks!
