I am planning to visit Switzerland on Saturday morning and leave by Sunday evening. Most probably arrival/depart from Basel Airport. stay on Saturday night in Basel or near by area,

I want to cover as much as possible to see the Switzerland.
Please suggest me:

* Famous Switzerland Places to cover
* mode of transport
* Approximate budget of traveling by public transport (Bus/Train/Tram).
* Recommended stay to start the journey from the place where i an end Saturday and then start Sunday from there.

Thanks for your advice.

Welcome to the forum nitinkohli! I suggest a stay in Lucerne or Interlaken. You could visit highlights such as the Jungfraujoch, Rigi, Pilatus and make boat trips over Lake Thun/lake Brienz and/or lake Lucerne. Further tips are listed here. That's enough for a two day visit. You can best travel by public transportation and plan your trips using the timetable. Prices can be found there too. A Swiss Half Fare Card may help you save money, depending on the exact trips you'll be making. Here's how to calculate whether a rail pass is worth your money.

I hope this gets you started!
