Four Indian cities -- Agra, Ahmedabad, Kochi and Panaji -- feature among the Asian Top 10 list of a global survey, when it comes to last-minute bookings for luxury destinations, which are also affordable.

Amongst the Asian Top 10 luxurious but affordable destinations, four Indian cities have been listed, according to a survey by global online hotel search site Trivago.

The data was compiled by Europe, North and Central America, South America, Oceania, Southeast Asia, Middle East, Asia and Africa.

Agra in Uttar Pradesh is second on the list, with an average price of Rs 5,220 per night, followed by Ahmedabad in Gujarat securing the third position with Rs 5,275 per night, the survey revealed.

Kochi is in the seventh position in the list, with Rs 5,660 per night, on an average, while Panaji in Goa is on the eighth position, at an average of Rs 5,673 per night, it said.
