There are not too many places on this planet that can leave such an indelible impression upon vacationers as India can. Layers of history illustrate the marked contrasts of this long-lived country. Your senses will experience overload with the variety of sounds, colors, and yes, contradictions. India is ripe with the unexpected, and it’s a sure bet you’ll not be the same.
Have you ever been anywhere that, after you left, you found the place had gotten a hold of your heart? India is a land of exotic beauty and rich, cultural architecture. The cuisine, spirituality, and sheer adventure of India are calling to you.
Even if you don’t consider yourself to be a culinary risk-taker, you’ll find that trying something new isn’t such a bad thing after all. “Foodies” will tell you that visiting India simply to sample the various dishes is actually the most popular reason for visiting. Indians are known for their culinary masterpieces, and they take food in general very seriously. You’ll see, as India itself, the cuisine is impeccably diverse. In the north of the country, foods are thick and creamy and are somewhat spicy, while foods in the south are much spicier.
There may not be a more spiritual place on earth. Spirituality is intricately woven and delicately intertwined into the everyday life of India’s people. You’ll find members of all major religions here, while India itself is where Hinduism and Buddhism (just to name a couple) were born. Even those who are not religious or spiritual enjoy India because it is simply a fantastic place to be if you have a general interest in this subject. You’ll find places to attend yoga sessions or even attend a meditation sanctuary.
Love of Adventure
Regardless of where you are in India, you’ll feel the electricity of adventure. The beaches of Goa are not just for sunbathing; in fact, cycling along these shores can be an incredible experience. Hiking the mountains of the north of India or going on safari to find Bengals or elephants in their natural habitat are invigorating aspects of this amazing country.
Indeed, a vacation to India will be one grand adventure.
