1. Taj Mahal - Everyone Has Seen It During The Day. Instead, Book Tickets & View It On A Full Moon Night

HolidayIQ Traveller Niraj Shah shares, "Because of the way the city is, the Taj Visit gets curtailed to a same-day return trip to Delhi (for us at least). I do wish that the city of Agra were a lot better. You could at best do a 1 night trip to include a visit to Fatehpur Sikri. But onto the wonder of the world - I never thought that I will like the Taj so much, since all of us have seen it a number of times in the movies. But the actual sighting is absolutely stupendous. Its not possible to describe it in words - it is that good. My wife says though - that visiting it in the hot summer months takes the charm away - I went in the chills of January, so weather was on our side. It is jaw-droppingly beautiful - a must visit if you can find the time. PS: it might be a good idea to take a guide - at times, they give nuggets of info which make the trip a lot more interesting."

2. Jaipur - It's Not Just Pink, It's Colouful

Mohit Kumar Arora shares, "I had been to Jaipur many times officially but it was wonderful this time with my wife and daughter accompanying me for the first time. Heritage of Rajasthan is best visible in Jaipur, be it Amer fort, Hawa mahal or Jal mahal, Birla mandir and not to forget Raj mandir. Everything was perfect there for a 2-3 days weekend trip. Love to visit again."

3. Goa - Everyday Is Season Here

Shweta Shetty shares, "Perfect holiday destination all year. So this is my favourite getaway... There is absolutely nothing you do here that you will regret... Beer, food, amazing people, beaches, water sports... It has everything for everyone... It's beautiful any time you go... It's place to let go and have some kickass fun... There might be fewer shacks during rains but it is way more beautiful during rains."

4. Kashmir - Not Just Romance But Rejuvenation

Everyone likes to go as it has a very cool environment and is an amazing place. Dal Lake, Chashma Shahi, Nishat Garden and Gulmarg are the must visit places."

Balakrishnan Rajagopalan shares, "Kanyakumari is the southernmost tip and the confluence of Arabian Sea, Bay of Bengal and Indian Ocean. It is enchanting to see sunrise (round the year) and sunset (except June to Aug/Sept) from and into the sea at one and same location in India. Offers many attractions to all types of visitors - religious, beach and spiritual besides overall relaxation.
Choose a good time to visit - preferably Late October to early February, to avoid excessive heat. Good choice of hotels and rates, and a choice of food from any part of India. Real confluence."

6. Kerala Backwaters - If You Want To Experience Heaven

Rajanikanth Bottu shares, "Travelling on the backwaters of Alleppey is a life time experience, which one should not miss. It offers an unique opportunity in India to feel like as if we are in Venice.
Normally whenever I go to Alleppy I travel by the kerala tourism water transportation boat instead of choosing the expensive house boats. The advantage of travelling by these boats is that they are inexpensive and offers wide range of choices between stops.
If you are travelling on budget, these are good options. You can pack your food from the hotels available at the just adjacent town of Alleppey and enjoy while you ride the boats.
There are several villages between Alleppey and kottayam. If you start early in the morning, you can see the villages of kuttanad, kumarakom etc and come back in the evening.
October to March is the best time to enjoy these rides on the backwaters of Kerala.
Of course, if you are interested in adventure sports, visit Alleppey during the snake boat race festival.
Its a joy ride with beautiful landscapes engulfing you."

7. Purani Delhi - More Historic Than You Know

I loves this place so much developed. My overall experience was wonderful because I was with my brother with own car. If your coming to Delhi prefer Metro or Cab don't prefer any Bus."

Ellora talks about religious deities of Hindus and has the best of architecture. Visiting the cave 30-34, 29, 21 and 17 are must watch. You will be awestruck."

Arnab Nag shares, "I can't give a specific reason as to why one must visit Darjeeling, it started being my favourite place ever since I visited it for the first time in 2007. Rightly termed as the Queen of Hills, this place has an amazing charm which is hard to describe in words. The best time to visit is during the winters and summers, always avoid the monsoons. October, November, March and April are the best months to get a clear view of the sunrise from Tiger Hill. 

Your hotel will arrange for most of the sightseeings which are quite common for eg Japanese Temple, Peace Pagoda, Batasia Loop, Ghoom Monastery, Ganga Maya Park, Rock Garden, Zoo, etc. But don't miss out on visiting the Happy Valley Tea Estate. We had an amazing time there, with a guided tour of tea processing and that too for free! The mall is an awesome place to hang out in the evenings as well as early mornings with a lot of shopping options. 

It feels amazing to sit in the mall and to sip onto your cup of tea and watch the clouds fly by. There lots of adventure centres which have opened up that provides guided treks and other adventure sports such as paragliding, etc. So make sure that you visit this place at least once in your lifetime and it will keep giving you reasons to come back again and again."

10. Mysore - Royal City Offering Multiple Experiences

Roopika Srinivas shares, "Early morning ride from Bangalore for three hours landed us at Chamundi hills and the Holy Chamundeshwari Temple. Chamundi Hills stood strong and tall giving away a beautiful view of the Mysore city. Telescopic view of the Mysore palace from the hills was enough for us. We managed to make it to Mysore zoo by noon. You can probably choose to skip the zoo as it is more of a torture to see the animals caged. We headed to the New Sharada resort (very close by to Palace and next places to be visited) to rest for a while.
We headed to KRS before sunset and spent the evening at KRS backwaters, a place famously referred to as blue lagoon. As we sat there in peace, sun kissed us goodbye. It took us a while to convince ourselves to leave the place and head to Brindavan gardens. People enjoying the water dance to the 90's music lifted our fun sides up. The fountain water looked as if it was trained to dance for Tunuk Tunuk Tara ra. We headed back to the resort recalling our journey thus far. The rest of the night was unplanned. It was pure madness at the resort with camp-fire and live music in the background."
