Thread: Which is your favorite travelling place?

  1. #11
    As per my trips in 2017, I would suggest you all to visit, Kyoto in Japan, South Korea and Golden triangle in India with Udaipur. I gave one week for Japan and S-Korea and anther week in India (Delhi-Agra-Ranthambore-Jaipur-Udaipur and Ranakpur). Plus I am doing research on Bali and Malaysia as they have become some popular tourist attractions this year.

    On New Orleans, I have been 5 or 6 times over the years and enjoyed it, but the more I read about crime there, the more I have questioned going again. Then their really ugly local shananigans with their history over the past year has been a real turn off.

    The appeal of places change. I really liked Acapulco when I went three decades ago, but I would not go now, even if it was a free trip.

    Well here are my details of my trip to India, where I booked a Golden Triangle Tour with Udaipur. You should start the trip from New Delhi, as air flights to New Delhi are much cheaper, in comparison, to other cities in India. Spend 24-36 hours in Delhi and then rent a car, and drive for Agra to explore the Taj Mahal (it's also one of the seven wonders of the world). A 24 stay in Agra is enough and later driver for Jaipur, along with on-route stops at Fatehpur Sikri and Chand Baori.
    FYI - Chand Baori is a stepwell, which was featured on 2012 Batman movies. Remember the scene when Bruce wayne was poisoned in a jail under ground.

    You must stay two ways in Jaipur, as the city is amazing and a heave for shopping lovers like me. Then from Jaipur, move for Udaipur, along with on-route stop at Ranakpur Temples (it's a UNESCO World Heritage site). Then spare two days for Udaipur sightseeing. And then come back to Delhi by flight or hire a car till Delhi, where you can spend the night in Jaipur and reach Delhi on next day. I am suggesting the second option, as with this, one can also visit Kumbhalgarh Fort.

    Usually I'd side with rapmarks about a good beach, whether Florida, west coast or Atlantic. However, this October I had a wonderful trip exploring Spain. So much to see!

    I think it's a love it or hate it place.
    Honestly to me it's just a dilapidated old city.
    It has the potential to be alot more and hopefully one day
    they'll appreciate what they have or get a cash infusion to
    fix the place.

    I first went about 25 years ago and hated it.
    It was full of crime and everything was in disrepair.
    I was hoping Katrina would have given them a cash infusion but
    after going back about 2 years ago not much has changed.
    I did like it a little better this time since I stayed with a local
    in his house and he took us around the city during Mardigras
    but as a tourist I was not impressed.

    This is pretty much me.
    Give me a room with a view on a nice beach and I'm a happy camper.

    Did you do a timeshare exchange for this?

    I think it's like most tourist cities, you have to pay attention to your surroundings.
    I didn't feel any worse there than I do here at home in Miami.

    I loved Spain too.
    I wish I could go back but my health has me limited.
    It's so nice and lots to see and do and the food is amazing.
    And timeshares galore in Southern Spain so it's amazingly cheap.

    Hi, since I am in Asia for last 2 years, here are a list of some amazing tourist attraction which you would have never seen or heard before.

    1. Hampi

    Attachment 1173

    Image rights with me...

    This city is in Karnataka, and was once the capital of 16th century Vijayanagara empire, which even the businessmen of Rome Italy, had said that it;s the second most richest country in the world. Well, those Italians, will never consider them as second, so in my view, Vijayanagara empire was the richest empire in the world in 16th Century. To reach here, you need to land at Hyderabad or Bangalore Airport, and then either catch a train for Hospet (20 km from Hampi) or hire a cab.

    2. City of Jaipur and it's palace and massive fort

    Attachment 1174

    This image is of Amber Fort.

    Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan, and is just 275 km from New Delhi, India. This city is heaven for those travelers who wants to experience the life of Indian maharaja's. Here one must visit the City Palace, which is still a property run by local Maharaja, and the fort of Amber which is massive. Plus, one can book room in a hotel, which use to be a palace of a king or his ministers, like Samode Haveli, Raj Palace and my favorite Rambagh Palace.

    3. Udaipur's Lake Palace

    In my experience, if one is landing at Delhi Airport, and wants to plan a week long holiday tour, then he or she must visit Delhi, Jaipur, Agra (well you got to see Taj Mahal) and then spend 2 days in Udaipur. Udaipur is in southern Rajasthan and is in the middle of New Delhi (that's the capital of India) and Mumbai, which is refereed as the financial capital of India. Now if you are one of those people, who collect all the copies of Bond movies, then you have already seen the Lake Palace of Udaipur. Lake Palace was 3-4 century old palace, standing in the middle of a lake, and came in the bucket list of western travelers after the screening of 1983 James Bond movies - Octopussy, Almost 60% of the movies was filmed here and in many other palaces in Udaipur. You can more details about Udaipur Delhi Agra Jaipur tours from Santram Holidays Pvt Ltd, Golden triangle tours. Or buy a book from Lonely Planet India, have shared a link below.

    Plus, these three are the tip of the iceberg of tourist heavens in India. You can also look at sites in Jaisalmer, Jodhpur (been here twice), hill stations of Srinagar and three more which are 60 km away. And I would suggest all to check Lonely Planet India book to get the best details our there on India tourism.

    If I want somewhere tropical where I can enjoy fruits that are in season and crystal clear beaches, Philippines is my go-to place. I am in love with its natural and well-preserved beauty. Next one is Japan, what I love most about Japan is their culture and shopping district.
