January is the time to finally visit that firang cousin living in "Amrika", but that is only if he lives in San Antonio (SA). This is one of the largest cities in the country and has something for everyone, whether he is a lover of hip-hop music, sport, art, liquor or adventure. The only downside is that SA could be a bit heavy on the pocket. The two most popular destinations of SA – the Alamo and the Riverwalk – are surprisingly right at the city's centre, making it easier for one to extract local flavour. Unlike other metropolitans, San Antonio greets you with a lingering pace for you to get into the mood of the place at ease.Famous for: San Antonio Spurs (basketball team) and music.Things to do: Visit the shrine of The Alamo. Witness an NBA match.Weather in January: Temperature fluctuates between 3 degrees and 16 degrees celsius, but it's always sunny during the day.Average budget per head for 5 days (excluding flights): Rs. 82,000
