    I am visiting India for business in mid Feb for a month, after working for 20 days I have the rest of the time for myself so where in India would you suggest to spend a week? I am open to fly anywhere within India and would like to spend my time in mix of history and culture, I am not into parties or camping so please suggest something comfortable and relaxing.

    Where are you going to work those 20 days? It would be helpful in suggesting good options. India is not a small country. I have been visiting India almost every two years for the last 15 years and still havent seen enough to say that I know India, It surprises me every time.

    I will be based in Pune this time and this is not my first trip to India. I have been to India 3 times before, but never got time for myself, this is the first time that I am getting time for myself so want to make best use of it :)

    Tricky to answer, because India is a big country full of places to visit and full of culture and different things. It would be a good idea if you could give an insight to some specific interests.
    First on the list I would suggest is the golden triangle where you would visit Delhi (the capital), Agra (Taj Mahal) and Jaipur (place full of history).

    Visit India mean which type of places you want to visit if you want to spend 20 days in India than I would prefer that you choose 10 days for north and 10 days for South India in North India you can stay in India and watch India Gate , Qutub Minar, Lal Quila,Lodhi Gardens,Salimgarh Fort,Lotus Temple,Jantar Mantar,Akshardham Temple , Purana Qila ,Jama Masjid,Rajpath in Raisina Hill, Raj Ghat after this you can go Agra and watch taj mahal after this take flight for Jaipur and Varanasi in Jaipur you can see Hawa Mahal, Amer Fort, City wall of Jaipur, City Palace, Jaipur, Diggi Palace, Hawa Mahal, Jaigarh Fort, Nahargarh Fort and Banaras is famous for its temples and ghats.

    In South India, there are following things for tourist attractions Hampi, silicon city in Bangalore, Kochi, Madurai,Rameswaram and Kanyakumari.

    To answer the question I think depends on you and what you are interested in and like doing. As others have said, India is a vast country and its filled with all sorts of tourist destinations, catering for all different tastes.

    No matter where you find to go, seeing as you've been a few times before you'll know that you'll enjoy yourself, and at least this time be able to experience India at your leisure, and not let business get in the way.
