Travel to India in August

Dear members,

We are thinking to travel to India next year. The journey would be for 10/15 days and wwe intend to fly to New Dheli and from here to Agra and Jaipur. The journey would finish in Goa. Due to usual monsoon, we have doubts about the time to go, my question is do you think that it is a good idea to travel in August to do this journey? Many thaks for the advice. Best, Mário

If you don't mind the Monsoon weather?

If you want sun etc, November or February.

Yes, August is the monsoon season. However, the state of Rajasthan does not experience heavy rainfall. Large parts of this state is actually desert. I suggest you do Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and Udaipur. You will have a great trip, the hotels are also less expensive in this period and you will not have tourist crowds everywhere.

AS it will be monsoon season in India so it is not a good idea to go to Goa, may be you can explore more parts of North India.

Rajasthan will b fine during the monsoons but you might not want to include Goa as the rains are heavy, the beaches deserted and the sea very rough. Consider including Varanasi/Khajuraho instead or going to Ladakh.

It is not a big problem to travel during the monsoons in North India, as the rain is not heavy, in fact it is very pleasant at times when it rains for a bit and makes the weather great for the rest of the day.

Goa during the monsoons is very green but quiet, as the crowds are missing. So if you like the quiet, then that is the time to go to Goa. But most of the happening clubs & restaurants are closed during the monsoons in Goa.

Since this is considered off season time for most of the places in North India and elsewhere as well, you can get good deals from hotels as well.

Your trip will be great in a few parts of the country and on the others not so great...Goa is practically shut during the monsoon and open only from October...Rains in North India are not so relieving as hot weather mixed with intermittent rain increases the humidity a lot. Rajasthan will be good. Since this is the off-season for most of the places, prices will be comparatively less but you see whether you want to travel all the way from Portugal just to save a few bucks...End of September till March is the best season to visit all these places.
