India is a beautiful and bamboozling place, an endlessly fascinating country that is always surprising. Visiting India is an assault on the senses because sights, sounds, smells, and sensations are all experienced at the highest level here.
In order to mark the 71st anniversary of Indian independence, here are a few good excuses for a visit.
- It’s cheap
India is one of the top countries in the world with “price competitiveness” for travelers. In addition, a recent drop in the value of the rupee means a trip to India is even cheaper than usual right now. You can get around the country by train for peanuts. Luxurious accommodation is relatively affordable. Eating out is not expensive.
- There’s the food
It can be said that no other country all over the world can offer the range of cuisine that India does. There’s no typical Indian food. The familiar favorites of chicken tikka masala, rogan josh, malai kofta, and tandoori butter naan can be even harder to find in India than in the UK.
- The world’s most famous buildings
India has many famous buildings such as Old Churches of Goa, The Taj Mahal, Qutab Minar of Delhi, Charminar, Red Fort, and Jantar Mantar. And the Taj Mahal is one of the most splendid pieces of architecture in the world.
- The madness of Delhi
India’s capital, like many of India’s other cities, is a pulsating megalopolis that stifles and stimulates in equal measure. However, when traveling here, you will soon discover a side you may not have expected; get lost in the dusty bookshops, wander around the Hindu temples, shop at bustling markets, go to a comedy club and take in a Bollywood show.
- You can stay in a palace
Many of India’s former palaces have been converted into lavish hotels. There are so many hotels to choose to live like a Mughal king.
