The beauty and diversity of India makes it a mesmerising place to explore. Not only is it an enriching experience to travel through the various states, it might also be a great way to understand your own country and its people a lot better.
Here are some places you must visit in India:
From elephant reserves to soothing backwaters, God’s Own Country will leave you spellbound.
One of the places to visit is Kochi, which was a significant port for trading spices in the past. You can still see the impact of the European era in the architecture and the smell of spices which still lingers to this day. The Paradesi Synagogue and the St. Francis CSI Church are major attractions.
Spend a day around Kovalam beach from where you see a candy-striped lighthouse, with palm tree groves leading to guesthouses. You can also enjoy delectable seafood meals at the beachfront. Alappuzha offers you the finest experience of Kerala’s calm backwaters in boathouses where you can stay overnight. If gushing waterfalls, mountain forests and vast expanses of tea plantations excite you, then Munnar is highly recommended.
The charm and romance of this city is unparalleled in India. Known for an abundance of lakes, marvellous havelis and palaces, numerous interwoven and crooked streets, and beautiful gardens, Udaipur provides ample opportunities to get lost in its grandeur.
The famous City Palace is an attraction not to be missed here, showcasing a blend of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture. Spectacular interiors, comprising of mirror work, murals, coloured glass mosaics, marble work and wall paintings, in addition to a panoramic view of the city will leave you spellbound. The Lake Palace is situated on the artificial fresh water Pichola Lake. Fateh Sagar Lake, which confines 3 islands, is another huge attraction. Walk around gardens such as Saheliyon ki Bari and Gulab Bagh to take in the cultural wealth of the city.
Puducherry, as it is now called, is an abode for spiritual enlightenment due to the Sri Aurobindo Ashram and Auroville.
Adventure lovers will find a plethora of water activities to engage in. This is the only place along the east coast where you can go scuba diving. Walk along untouched beaches to witness gorgeous sunrises, and spend time at the famous Paradise beach and Serenity beach to soak in the sun and sample some coastal fare.
However, the expenses incurred during these travels might dent your budget a little. To ease this burden, and spread the payment cost over a comfortable tenure, it would be advisable to avail a personal loan for travel.
