Planning your first trip to India will be a challenging task. With its heady mix of nose tingling spices, eye-catching architecture, local crowds, and chaotic streets, India is an interesting place to visit.
All of India cannot be experienced in a few days since the country packs a lot into a massive space. First think about what you like doing, what interests you and how much time you have and plan your journey accordingly. Rather than trying to explore the whole country, it’s wise to pay attention of North and South India separately. Many a travel agent in Sri Lanka the likes of Aitken Spence Holidays, organizes tailor-made tours to experience the taste of both worlds.
Escape the crowds
Needless to say, many parts of India are extremely crowded with over a billion locals. The mayhem and bustle can be fun only if there is a festival celebration. However, India has some quiet retreats to spend a relaxing time devoid of noises and crowds. For both inner and outer peace, head over to north India’s captivating hill stations, Himachal Pradesh or beaches of Kerala in south India.
Romantic Taj Mahal
India’s iconic attraction that has endured the test of time the Taj Mahal is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Located in Agra this monument was constructed by the Moghul Emperor Shah Jahan as a token of love to the memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal.
Mingling with locals
India comprises more than 20 languages and Hindi is not spoken by every local there. Therefore, English serves as the common lingo. Knowing a few phrases like ‘shukriya’-thank you and ‘aap kaise hai’-how are you will help you to break the ice.
