Had been to Jalgaon to visit my sister over there. It is a beautiful place with plenty of cuisines to taste from. I really liked the different cuisines available in small restaurants and it's very cheap over there as well.
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: For sight-seeing I have been to Sai baba temple from there and Shanni temple near that. Worth having a visit over there.
Activities & things to do: Need to visit the big and large gardens and paddy fields on the country side.
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: By flight upto Mumbai and from there you can hire a taxi or go by train. Buses are also available, but not advisable to go by bus, as it is not so comfortable to travel by bus.
