India trip suggestions

I'm going to India in about 4 days on a very hastily organised trip. I'm going to Jaipur, Shimla/Manali, and Delhi, all for 3-4 days each.

What are some things you guys would suggest/like about these places? I want to do typical streetwalking, just exploring the cities, but I also have no idea what they're really like and known for, or what even the essential things are to see and do.

I literally am interested in any suggestions at all you guys might have, I feel completely out of my depth here and sorta overwhelmed with information.

    >Shimla/Manali
    You can't do both, go to Manali. Shimla is pretty meh, there is a single interesting street which is flooded with people, and a colonial mansion which only opens in the summer. Manali is nice, also crowded but its pretty nice. Its small, you can explore on foot. Go to Hadimba, Solang. You can also go to Kasol-Manikaran, and if you have time try visiting Sissu.
    >Jaipur
    there is a temple near the city, called Galta Ji, go there with some bananas if you want to see monkeys
    >Delhi
    its a gas chamber rn anon. get a mask if you want to breathe (n95 not the meme ones). But anyway, start in New Delhi before you go to Old Delhi. Visit Lodhi Gardens first, explore that area. Chandni Chowk can be pretty overwhelming. Dont go to Connaught Place, its scam central. But there is a stepwell near it called Agrasen ki Baoli which you can go to. There is this neat place called Majnu-ka-Tilla, its a Tibetan refugee colony which is kinda cool.
    Heres some monuments you want to see - Lotus Temple, Akshardham, Humayun's Tomb, Qutub Minar, Red Fort

      Good recommendations for Delhi, but would still advise that OP visit Connaught Place and surrounding areas. The scams there are idiotically transparent--it's just some random fricker running up to you and yelling, "Hello, sir! What you're looking for? First time in India? Carpet shop this way!"

      So basically, you definitely want to hit
      >Jodhpur
      most impressive fort in India imho and the city is blue which is cool.
      >Udaipur
      Relatively relaxed, pretty city with a palace in a lake.
      >Ranakpur, Kumbalgarh
      Cool places between Jodh-Udai
      Then there is Jaipur, which is pretty overrated as the capital but still worth visiting. Other than that it depends-
      >Jaisalmer for desert, safaris like Dubai, camel festival in Feb. Clear night skies.
      >Ranthambore to see tigers
      >Bikaner
      alright spot to break journey to Jaisalmer
      >Ajmer
      decent mosque but wouldnt go out of my way for it
      >Pushkar
      camel festival in Nov, not worth it otherwise
      >Agra
      See the Taj in the morning, fort by noon and get out.
      >Mumbai
      I would say yes, if you haven't been to other thirdie metros its a different experience while not being as shitholey as Delhi. I dont know about the party scene, but there is decent colonial architecture and an island nearby called Elephanta with cool caves. (Although If you can make it, I would personally try to go to *the* caves, ie Ajanta-Ellora which you can go to via Mumbai. You can also hike to Maratha hill forts from Mumbai which are great in the monsoon) Smells really bad though.

      I have kinda opposite question.

      Indian anon here, I have mostly stayed at my hometown my entire life, but want to start exploring.

      What country would you suggest for a first time traveler?

      I will be solo, want only around 3 days stay, and willing to spend very little - maybe 3-4k USD?

      Please advice.

    Dumb question regarding train tickets. I reserved online through a third party site (reserving directly is impossible without an Indian phone number) and I got a PDF email with an ERS/Electronic Reservation Slip and a QR code.

    Can I just show this to ride the train? Or do I show the reservation slip to get a ticket at the station? This is basically what I got (not my actual PDF, just what I found on google images)

      Why can't you read the instructions provided in the ERS? It would mention that you need ERS + valid identity.

      My person experience(just once):

      You can just board the train, and after some time the checker would come.

      He will just ask if you are the correct person by mentioning your name as per records.

      They don't ask for any docs unless there is some conflict/issue.

        Even the screenshot you posted mentions - ERS + valid identity.

        Carefully reading the thing would most certainly help you.

          An ERS doesn't say it's a ticket and they're not used interchangeably.

          China lets you book tickets online, but you show proof of online booking at a station along with a passport and pick up the physical ticket. A "reservation slip" sure sounds like a reservation for a ticket similar to the Chinese system, and the "instructions" make it sound the same.

    5 days in bangalore (from tuesday until saturday) - my company sends me there for some sort of training of the team that will handle some support tasks

    any chance to see something cool considering ill be working 9-5 most of the days?

    any good food recommendations? I don’t mind street food, as long as i wont shoot shit further than i can see.

    how’s the bar scene? any sense in going solo? guys from work don’t strike me as bar types (they’re mostly middle aged indian guys with families) so i am wondering if it’s normal to just hang out in the bar

    how’s the hookup/cooming culture? i am doing okay here where i leave, can score ONS/FWB type of thing without any issues, but i hear indian girls are more of a „my parents picked this guy for me” type.
