India Travel FAQs
- How many days do I need in India?
Generally, how long it takes to travel to India depends on the breadth and depth of your visit. If you are planning to focus on the highlights of the "Golden Triangle" (covering the cities of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur), 7 to 8 days would be appropriate. If you want to have a better understanding of India, you can spend 2 weeks or more days exploring more charming cities in this country, such as Jodhpur, Udaipur, Varanasi, Kerala, Mumbai, etc., and even the Himalayas areas.
- Can I combine my visit to India with another country?
Of course. The most popular countries to combine with India for touring are usually Nepal, Bhutan and Sri Lanka. Since different countries have their own specific entry requirements based on your citizenship, it is better for you to check certain policies and make plans in advance.
