Varanasi/ Spas in IndiaWe are going to Varanasi getting in mid-morning and leaving the following evening. Aside from the sunrise boat tour and the aarti service, what are the must sees? We want to make sure we don't miss anything. And where is the best place to watch the aarti service?
Also, we went to Vietnam and Cambodia last year and loved going to the spas because the prices were much more reasonable than in the US. Is this the same in India? If anyone has any specific suggestions for spas, we will also be in Delhi, Jaipur and Agra. Thanks!

1To see the arati, visit dasashwamedh ghat, if you want to be on land...check the timings before you go there. there is a small temple just at the edge of the ghat, which has a rooftop lookout, and i have seen many foreigners enjoy the arati from up there. not sure if you have to gift anything for this.
if you love peace and quiet, make a visit to sarnath, and visit the museum.

4Yes merantau, India's cosmopolitan metropolises have spas these days. Check out Duncan McDuie-Ra’s recent ‘Northeast migrants in Delhi : race, refuge and retail’ for a good insight how some groups are taking advantage of the new neoliberal economic spaces to establish and express their global identity.
