India- A perfect travel destination

India is a land with rich culture, heritage and historical treasure as it walks on the path of modernity. It’s an “All in One” package for travellers. From the highest peaks to the beautiful beaches, snow clad mountains to desert, glitz of Mumbai to the parch landscapes of Rajasthan, India has it all. And lets not forget the flavourful idiosyncratic food.

So lets see what makes India so distinctive and appealing to the travellers.

  1. Spirituality and Religion: Land of many Gods, India has large number of temples and Ashrams. India’s tremendous cultural power has maintained a deep impact on the world and has been a beacon of light for the west. At the Golden Temple or Haji Ali which is midst the ocean to beautiful churches, everyone can find their peace here.

7. Beaches: India is a Peninsula, surrounded by water from 3 sides, giving travellers some beautiful beaches to enjoy. Travellers favourite destination Goa and its numerous beaches to the back water of Kerela and other beaches like Light House beach in Kovalam. Mumbai also has some popular and over crowded beaches which is the main weekend getaway for its people.

8. Royalty and luxury: Many royal palaces are now converted into 5 star hotels and travellers can enjoy and get a feel of royalty. India also offers great luxury, at a price of course, with a luxury hotels at all the popular travel destination and cities. One can also travel in style on the “Palace on Wheels” as the train criss crosses the land of Maharajas of Rajasthan and also takes you to Agra and Delhi.

9. Yoga: From the Beatles who came to Rishikesh and got fascinated with yoga to the rest of the world now spreading their yoga mats and made it a part of their regime. Unarguably the most trending thing in the world, travellers seek yoga to connect with their inner self and transcend into a state of peace. There are plenty yoga centres spread all over India.

10. Festivals: India has not one but many festivals with every religion having its own celebrations. See everything colourful during holi or the sky lit up as we celebrate Diwali, Eid has people greeting one another and we also have Santa Clause coming to town riding on its sleigh in December. Festivities take the spirit high and makes its a beautiful place to be for travellers.

And there is much more that travellers and tourist can enjoy in India. The Big Fat Indian Wedding will leave the traveller enthralled by the grandeur of celebration and the colourful attire. Dance to the tune of Garba or Bhangra or visit places less explored, a traveller has lots to experience, explore and relish. Each state of India will entertain its visitors with its history, culture, food and tranquil places leaving them enraptured and take away a memorable trip.

Can’t agree more on this that if there is a place on this planet that upholds the flag of “Unity in Diversity” in a real sense, it wouldn’t be none other than our INDIA. Be it in the context of culture, color, food, territory, flora, and fauna, climate India has more flavor to flaunt than any continent in the whole world.
