Pune has long enjoyed a reputation as a center of culture and commerce, with many dynastic rulers making the town central to their regional plans in the centuries before the British Raj.
Venture out of the city with trips to Lonavala (Della Adventure Park, Sunil's Celebrity Wax Museum, &more), Parasailing & Paragliding (in Kamshet) and Lohagad Fort (in Khandala). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Dagadusheth Halwai Ganapati Temple, admire the landmark architecture of Shinde Chatri, see the interesting displays at Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum, and explore the historical opulence of Aga Khan Palace.

Kottayam ©
The first Indian city to achieve a 100 percent literacy rate among its citizens, Kottayam has as much of a reputation for its educational standards as for its massive rubber industry.
Get out of town with these interesting Kottayam side-trips: Vagamon Kurisumala (in Vagamon), Pathanamthitta (Muloor Smarakam, Valiyakoikal Temple, &more) and Kumarakom (Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary & Kerala Album Art Gallery). Spend the 24th (Tue) exploring at Kerala Backwaters. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Vagamon, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Vaikom Mahadeva Temple, don't miss a visit to Sree Vallabha Temple, and examine the collection at Bay Island Driftwood Museum.
