Quick Guide to India
To experience a different kind of culture and an entirely contrasting way of life, many travellers take holidays to India. Rich in history and culture, India holidays in 2017 can provide a unique and exotic experience for all kinds of people.
There's just something about the ever-persistent hum of energy in India. The whir of engines, the throng of people milling through life, carrying bright-coloured baskets on their shoulders, children in hand or trying to sell souvenirs to the nearest passer-by. From the the Golden Triangle to the bazaars of Kolkata, the rich tapestry of history, art and religion weaves itself into an array of fascinating moments in time, capturing your attention.
Red-brick mud, fragrant curries and the hot swill of dirt and heat permeate the air. You can push your way through city life, elbows jutted, shoulders out, and then suddenly find yourself broken free from the crowds, in a small enclave, with just a trickling fountain and a few tweeting birds as company.
Lush vegetation lies beside sandy roads and scaffolding of new buildings stand by derelict houses. Monkeys greet you, strangers feed you and every once in a while, you find yourself stopping amongst fast-moving cars, humans, animals and the like and realise this: the cacophony is irresistible.
