    Major Tourist Attractions: Taj Mahal, Ganges, The Red Fort, Bombay High Court, Harmandir Sahib

    Colorful, chaotic, and intense; the moment you set foot in India you will feel how this country is like none other on Earth. Colorful, chaotic, and intense; the moment you set foot in India you will feel how this country is like none other on Earth. Every aspect of India is presented in a massive and exaggerated scale; from the intensity of human interactions, to the physical expanse between regions, to the shockingly spicy yet delicious food, to the towering Himalayas on the north.

    India might be one country, but it feels almost like a continent full of dizzying and contrasting cultural approaches, rituals, food, tongues, races, and even religion.

    Religion plays a big role in the country and its heritage. From the ancient Buddhist sites to the holy Hindu city of Varanasi, India presents an intense symbolism that percolates through all your senses and makes it impossible not to be astonished by it.

    The complex cultures of this 5,000-year-old civilization have produced 27 UNESCO World Heritage Sites spread all around the country, ranging from the Taj Mahal to the Red Fort and the Mahabodhi Temple Complex, to name a few.

    Whether it is through the people, the unique architecture, the free roaming cows, the intense poverty, or the daily customs; traveling to India will certainly provide a culture shock that will surpass your imagination – and probably leave you confused.

    Some of the activities you shouldn’t miss while in India include:

    • Visiting the Taj Mahal
    • Road tripping through the Himalayas across Kashmir
    • Drinking the famous Lassi
    • Visit the holy city of Varanasi to witness the most sacred Hindu rituals
    • Stay at a boathouse in the lake town of Srinagar – called the Venice of the east
    • Visit the Golden Temple in Amritsar
    • Cross paths with the Dalai Lama in McLeod Ganj
    • Charm a cobra in the pink city of Jaipur
    • Rent a motorbike to hop between smaller towns in the Himalayas
    • Visit the beaches of Goa
    • Be an extra in a Bollywood film in Mumbai
