Weather in Northern India: Delhi, Agra, Rajasthan...
Cool weather, crystal skies and sunny days make November one of the best times to visit north India. Daily highs are around 27°C (81°F) in the golden triangle cities of Delhi, Jaipur, and Agra. Rajasthan is dry too, but its temperature range is greater at 14–30°C (57–86°F).
In November, you can enjoy better views, more-favorable prices, and less crowding, compared with the peak season (December to February).
Weather in the Far North Mountain Areas: Leh, Shimla, Himalayan Foothills...
In November, it is chilly in the far north mountain areas. You might encounter snow at the end of November. Trails might be frozen, which makes hiking and trekking dangerous.
If you are not keen on snow scenery, avoid visiting in November.
Weather in Southern India: Mumbai, Kerala, Goa...
In south India, sunny skies return on the southwest coast — Mumbai, Kerala, Goa, etc. Many yoga retreats and wellness resorts reopen and get prepared for the coming high season. The rates in November are lower than in December and January.
However, rainfall approaches the southeast coast due to its northeast-monsoon season from mid-October to mid-December.
The 5 Best Places to Visit in India in November
1. Delhi: Popular Starter Destination for an India Trip
In November, the weather starts to cool down in Delhi, with average daily highs of 27°C (81°F) and lows of 14°C (57°F). It is also very dry, with average monthly rainfall totaling only 3 mm (0.1 inches).
If you're a fan of astronomy, don't miss the Jantar Mantar, one of the world's most accurate pre-modern observatories. For history buffs, there's impressive historical heritage, such as Humayun's Tomb and Jama Masjid.
Want to experience authentic local life? Hop on a tuk-tuk and wander around bustling chocks (squares) or markets. Taking part in the local Diwali (November 10th to 14th, 2023) celebrations is a great choice too. Get more ideas about traveling in Delhi>>>
2. Agra: Home to the Taj Mahal
In November, temperatures peak at 29°C (85°F) during the day and bottom at 15°C (59°F) at night.
Traveling in November, you can thankfully avoid the potential foggy days of December/January. You'll also benefit from the warm and sunny weather to fully indulge in outdoor activities.
Once the capital of the Mughal Empire, Agra boasts a blend of lavish royal palaces and grand forts. The incredible Taj Mahal tops the bucket list of most India travelers, especially honeymooners. Check the best places to go in 1 or 2 days>>>
3. Jaipur: A Prime Example of India's Glorious History
In November, Jaipur's average rainfall drops dramatically to only 3 mm (0.1 inches). Jaipur also gets plenty of sunshine and cool weather during the day with average highs of 29°C (84°F).
As the pink city, Jaipur is a paradise for history buffs and shutterbugs. You can get a full insight from hilltop forts to the shopping markets.
A romantic dinner at the Amber Fort could brighten your India trip. A hidden gem, the Mini Great Wall, could be a bonus addition to your Amber Fort visit as well.
4. Varanasi: Cultural Hub of India
Varanasi stays sunny for almost the whole month of November. The average high temperature reaches around 30°C (86°F) during the day. If you don't like too much warmth or UV radiation, arrange your activities for the early morning or around sunset, when it's around 20°C (68°F).
Famous as a sacred city, you can find many cultural experiences in Varanasi, such as worship practices of Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam. With the pleasant weather, you can fully enjoy a boat ride on the Ganges River. The sunrise view and Ganga Aarti ceremonies in the evening deserve a stop.
5. Goa: Party Capital and Beach Paradise
In November, the average temperature range is from 22°C (72°F) to 32°C (89°F). If you would like a beach holiday in India that is unlikely to be tainted by rain, visit Goa after mid-November.
Cool breezes, charming beaches, and exciting water activities make up an ideal beach vacation. Goa has it all… even nightlife: enjoy a sunset beachfront dinner, hop to a nightclub, or join in a beach party at beachfront club...
Cost and Crowding
November signals the arrival of the high season in India, with favorable dry weather and cool–warm temperatures. Many more visitors come to India compared with the low season (April to September). But November still sees fewer than in the peak time (December 22 to January 7).
During November, room rates and airfares go up as the month goes on. With the high demand, you'd better make bookings 2 months in advance. With us, you would enjoy our no-risk-booking, 100% refund of any payments made to China Highlights prior to 3 weeks before departure (detail⇒).

Thailand, Singapore, Bali
In Thailand, Tanny and Nori(Suparp), were both incredible! They were both fun, funny, and full of knowledge and made sure we got the full experience. They went the extra mile and always made sure we had cold bottled water and towels to cleanse our hands. In Singapore, Nicole was an absolute gem. She was so kind and knowledgeable and guided us in the right direction to make our day as enjoyable as possible. She helped us choose a top notch local lunch and coffee spot in China Town and taught us so much about the country! In Bali, Emon was an absolute joy. He was very knowledgeable and kind and absolutely made sure we were feeling comfortable and was willing to be flexible with us. He was fun to converse with and made our time traveling between destinations so enjoyable! I cannot recommend Asia Highlights enough! Accommodations, travel arrangements and guided tours were all a breeze.More

Large multi-generational holiday in Thailand
The holiday was wonderful. Our guides, Mr Monchai (Bangkok), and Ms Tipagorn (Tippy) (Chiang Mai) were exceptional. Travelling in a large multigenerational group with many children requires patience and our guides truly understood that. Mr Monchai and Ms Tippy shared their extensive knowledge of the many wonderful places we visited, and were flexible to take us to additional places along the way based on discussions. While everyday was busy, having them greet us with patience and a smile truly made this a memorable holiday. The hotels we stayed at were equally wonderful and went above and beyond to celebrate not only my parents 50th anniversary but also celebrate 2 milestone birthdays that occurred. We will cherish this holiday for many years to come. We hope to use Asia Highlights again.More

Wonderful Guides and Experience
Our large group arrived in Bangkok with Tanni as our guide. She was wonderful! An absolute joy to spend time with. She is knowledgeable, kind, and extremely funny. I don’t know what we would have done without her! After Bangkok, we traveled to Chang Mai, where Indy was our tour guide. She was a delight! She is kind, knowledgeable, and so patient. Our trip to Thailand was an adventure of a lifetime and these two women helped make it memorable. I would definitely use Asia Highlights for any future travel in Asia.More

Guide - Chai
We travelled from Vietnam to Bangkok and were blessed to have a guide named Chai. He was a superb guide and it is a pity we couldn't bottle him and take him home. He was very knowledgeable and an absolute gentleman. He could not have done enough to facilitate us and imparted so much knowledge about the Temples, Buddism and the History of Thailand in general. Not only did he give us a great overview of the past and current ways of living in Thailand but I also feel I came away a much better person having interacting with him. I will carry many of his teachings with me for the rest of my life and know that having met him was a very special blessing in my life.More

We are only on day 5 of our 15 day trip…
Our first stop so far was in Hanoi where our guide Trong was just so awesome! He shared about his culture and family life which showing us sites through a city tour. He was so funny making lots of jokes and always made sure we were having fun while learning about everything! He checked on us frequently even when we were no longer with him since we then went on a cruise in Halong Bay! Halong Bay and the cruise on Paradise Elegance went way above anything I expected. The scenery was breathtaking, the ship was so beautiful and clean with such fresh, good food! And I can’t sing enough praise for the staff who took care of us- especially Anna and Belle! They went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed every aspect from eating meals with Anna to every other detail with Belle! I highly recommend Asian Highlights to help plan these extraordinary trips! This already has been a trip of a lifetime and we still have so much more to see all thanks to Cathy!!More

Tanni for the win!
14 of my closest friends and family descended upon Bangkok ready to see the town. Asia highlights and Tanni took us on a tour that changed our lives. We experienced so much everyday. Tanni was amazing! She did all the thinking for us, so we all could just be present and enjoy the moment. I can’t recommend this company, and especially Tanni enough.More

From the moment I landed in Bangkok, Ms Noi Ying was there to welcome me and get me settled into my hotel. We enjoyed several days together touring Bangkok and Kanchanaburi. In Chiang Mai, Mr Ekachai took my son snd I on an amazing trip to the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary and to visit a community Lanna home, gardens and a hands-on cooking class preparing an authentic Thai meal.

What to Pack
Temperatures are usually warm during the day, but it turns cool/cold in the evening. So, you're suggested to take summer clothing, such as t-shirts, light trousers/shorts, and/or summer dresses for the day and warmer clothes like sweaters, and a coat for the night.
For the chilly, far-north mountain areas, you'd better take down coats, fleeces, windproof walking boots, etc.
