India is a unique travel destination that’s growing in popularity all the time. Thinking of visiting? Here’s 5 reasons to visit India this year….
The food alone is reason enough to travel to India. Indians take their food very seriously and the cuisine, just like the country itself, is incredibly diverse.
From delicious creamy curries to spicy seafood and plenty of vegetarian options on offer, there couldn’t be a better place to indulge!
India’s palm-fringed southern beaches are the ideal escape from the frenetic pace of the north. While many of the popular beach destinations in Goa are now crowded, the state’s southern, more remote beaches are quiet and more pristine.
If you’re searching for solitude and peace, look no further than Agonda Beach in southern Goa. A tiny, sleepy little beach town, Agonda boasts only the necessities: a handful of restaurants, a few tiny shops and some cute little beach huts built along the 3km stretch of pristine beach. Perfect.
Religion and Spirituality
In India, religion and spirituality are intricately intertwined with everyday life. India is home to all of the major religions of the world and is the birthplace of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism. Observing the local people engaging in their daily rituals is a profoundly intimate experience. Many people also come to india to find spirituality, practising yoga or attending a meditation retreat in an ashram.
No matter where you travel to in India, a keen sense of adventure follows you everywhere you go. Whether you’re riding around the southern beaches of Goa on a motorbike, trekking snow-capped mountains in the north, attempting to spot Bengal tigers and Indian elephants in the wild, or even just navigating the chaotic streets of Delhi, travelling to India is one big adventure!
History and Architecture
India is an exceptionally beautiful and architecturally diverse country filled with forts, palaces, mosques, temples, monuments and ancient ruins. Home to the world’s oldest civilisation, the architecture of India is rooted in its history, religion and culture. Architectural styles have evolved under the influence of countless dynasties as well as the colonial period. There are currently 32 UNESCO World Heritage-listed sites across the nation, making India a treasure trove for history buffs and design enthusiasts.
