Informal Poll - Would You Go to India ?
Thursday, December 29, 2011
If you had the chance and the price was right, would you go to India for an 8 day vacation ? I found a trip through Virgin Atlantic tours. they have a 6 day escorted tour for New Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. The other two days are the plane ride to and from.
I was and still am pricing out airfare to London. I wanted to go in memory of my cousin, who loved going to London to see the shows. Well, as I was pricing out hotel/airfare, I came across the Virgin Atlantic website. Started checking out their tours and well, the 8 day tour to India is looking really enticing. The price would be around $2,000 including airfare. Figure a 16 hour flight each way, plus the tour bus to and from the various cities. Seeing the Taj Mahal is part of the trip.
I was even checking out trips to Russia. You want to talk expensive ? I thought Russia and the Eastern Block countries were supposed to be affordable. not any more.
So, would you go to India if you had the chance ? I'll admit it. It's really really enticing.
PS - My family would probably feel better if I went to Europe instead of India. I've love to do Egypt, but that's out for a while.
Addendum - Jeepers, you should see how long the application is for a tourist visa to India ! I don't think my college applications were that long. You weren't kidding, Sam !
