Tips For Travelling In India

1. Don’t cram too much into one trip
India has enough things to do to make your head spin, and you’ll do well to not dive in head-long without picking out the choicest parts. Think about the kind of scene you prefer – do you want a culturally driven trip, or a gastronomically driven one, for example, and then contemplate on the time you will get to spend in each of these places. Don’t visit it just to cross it off your list. Breathe it in, and live in it. That’s the best way to get to know India.

2. For Temples
If you are looking for a spiritual tour, you’ll find temples galore in India. There’s the Golden Temple in Amritsar, the rock-carved Sun Temple in Konark, Odisha, the almost shockingly erotic carved edifices of Khajuraho, and the marble Jain temples in Rajasthan and Gujarat.


Yes you will be able to see how people live in India, but for a more historic, perspective on what India truly is beyond the crowded streets and the merely sufficient space, get out of the city and visit some of the more rural, but beautiful areas.

4. Maps isn’t always your best friend

India is a vibrant, dynamic country, and for better-or-worse, the roads and routes share the same characteristic. Because of this, relying on your mobile devices to take you to your destination may not be the best way to do things if you don’t have a guide. Stop at a junction, and ask as shopkeeper instead. You might learn a short cut or two and probably make some interesting conversation too!

5. For Wildilfe

There are a large number of national reserves across India where you can meet a variety of wildlife like lions, in Sasan Gir, Gujarat;, wild asses in Little Rann, Gujarat; one-horned rhinos in Assam; and wild elephants in Wayanad, Kerala. If it is the avian species you seek, visit Bharatpur in Rajasthan. And if its white crocodiles and birds of several varieties, visit Bhitarkanika National Park!
