Travel Type:
With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Sightseeing & culture Visiting friends or family

Customer Travel Tip: Take a share taxi to border ceremony. You'll be thrilled you did! Don't go to Golden Temple on a Monday! Do go to the other temples, especially the maze-like one (I forget the name)... They're worth a visit, as they're pretty different from a lot of other temples in India...

Liked: Border ceremony on border of Pakistan/India... Totally wacky! Totally recommended! There's nothing quite like it!

Disliked: Not that much to do... Hotels are low-quality and pricey... It's a one-day to two-day town.
