India is an intoxicating fusion of cultural and ethnic groups – an astonishing diversity that will linger in the mind of the visiting travelers. Snow-dusted mountains and sun-washed beaches, serene temples to frenzied bazaars – all define the faces of diversity of this multi-dimensional country. India’s sacrosanct sites are perfect for the travelers seeking spiritual sustenance while grand vestiges of former empires gaze the swarming streets and run-down fortresses loom high above plunging ravines. India is also home to many beautiful beaches, wildlife safaris and pine-scented forest walks. For a soul-soothing dawn boat ride along the ghat-lined Ganges River in this sacred city, Varanasi is the place for the adventurous visitors. In Agra, marvel at the legendary beauty of Taj Mahal. Mumbai is the place for travelers longing for a cosmopolitan city.
India’s culinary culture is one of the wildest. Regional dishes are a variety of frying, simmering, sizzling, kneading and flipping of delicious and tasty delights, ranging from spicy marinated chicken drumsticks in North India to the simple squid rice dumplings in the steamy south. The best way to get around India is by metro bus, hop-on, hop-off bus service with pre-determined set of stops, taxi or hired car. Auto rickshaws or tuk-tuks and cycle rickshaws are ideal for short distance trips.
