That is OK too. India is not for everyone's tastes.

Also it is no more a cost effective destination. Flight tickets and Hotels are expensive if you are flying from USA

Not necessarily true. You can still get good deals on air and there are more inexpensive hotels opening ("nice" hostels or B&Bs). Food and transportation is cheap as well.

I would like to prefer Kerala. Kerala is one of the most beautiful state in India. It is also known as "God's Own City"

I was JUST reading another article that was saying that Goa is not longer the hottest touristic location, but that KERALA is that place.

On the other hand, from what I've seen of Kerala, I don't know if that is a good thing. I think the plus of Kerala is that its not overwhelmed by tourists.

Seems like a cool place though....highest literacy, or something to that effect, I read as well.

I am planning on a trip to India next year and it's something I've always wanted to do. Besides Delhi (point of entry) I want to go to Agra, Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Bikaner (Rajasthan really appeals to me). Also Goa, and then south to Kerala, Bangalore and Mysore. I especially want to see the ruins at Hampi. Can't do all this in one trip and will need two.
Definitely not interested in Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai, Varanasi.

That is quite a bit to cover even in 2 trips. How long are you planning to go for? You missed Udaipur in Rajasthan. What time of year do you plan to travel? Chennai is so-so, loved Kolkata, Varanasi was disgustingly dirty, and love Mumbai. Too much to see for a lifetime of trips to India!

I’d take Chennai over Goa. I’d also love to visit Amritsar and the golden temple.

What do you prefer about Chennai or dislike about Goa?

Just looking for an interesting perspective...
