I have 2 weeks to kill in August. I know I need longer buts that's all I have

As a seasoned backpacker in my youth I have no problems with travelling rough.

My big question is the airfares are the same to either Bombay or Delhi from London (GBP 280 return), I wish to experience the real India. What destination would anyone recommend to fly in to ?

A possible itinerary at each location would be of real help.

Also, I have left it to last minute. How much notice do you need to book trains ?

Many Thanks

If you're asking me, I would pick Bombay because I would like to visit Goa. However, Goa might not count as the "real India" to you... I heard it's very touristy and part of the well worn backpacker track.

Dont go to either of those places... too many hookers and slumlands... What you really need is a cool destination like Las Vegas... LOL

Great.

Bombay it is.

Goa is out of the question at the moment due to the Monsoon

Too many hookers !!. Is that posible. I'm sure Las Vegas has a few as well.

Can't see how India or Las Vegas can compare but thanks for the input Azreal
