Singapore Airlines is the best airline, and they have a sale to India
If you are considering finally taking that trip to India, you’ve now got yet another great way to go about it. Singapore Airlines has an excellent sale going right now whereby you can fly from any of their hubs in the United States to nearly any city in India for $879 including all taxes and fees.
Singapore flies into New York City, Houston, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, by the way, so this means you can fly across the country for free if you are coming from the West Coast. Or maybe they fly in the other direction from the West Coast? I’m not really sure, but I do know that Singapore Airlines is considered the best in the world, so it’s like flying first class even when you are in coach.
Finding tickets to India is always easy, but finding fares under $1,000 is quite rare from the United States, and finding them on a luxurious airline like Singapore is even more rare. Believe me, when you are leaving India you will be ready for some luxury again, so to be pampered starting right at the airport it fantastic.
Most people fly into Mumbai or Delhi, and those are the two biggest cities so it makes sense, but part of the trick when coming here is to get out of the cities as early as possible in order to really appreciate the charm of this mysterious country. There are definitely cheap hotels in Mumbai, but prices are actually lower pretty much everywhere in the country, with the exception of Delhi.
I recommend visiting Goa if you come in winter, or going to Pushkar, which is near Ajmer in Rajasthan, any time of the year. You know about Goa’s reputation as a beach resort, but Pushkar is very different, being one of the holiest cities in the country, yet it’s still very tourist friendly and very cheap too.
