India is a vast country, filled with history, culture and so many stories. It is a place that everyone should visit at least once in their life to admire the architecture and visit some of the exquisite sites the land has to offer. There are so many different parts of India, all with distinctive qualities that are incomparable.
Commemorating their 67th year of independence this year, it is a great time to visit the country, full of celebrations. There are so many things to see and with its expansive land, it is almost impossible to do it all in one trip, therefore you may wish to plan activities around where you are staying. Here we give you a list of the things you must do when visiting India.
The first thing on our list, of course, is the Taj Mahal. The impressive infrastructure is the product of one of the greatest love stories of all time, making it utterly breath taking. The mausoleum is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and quite rightly so. It provides some amazing photo opportunities, both during the day and at night. You may not wish to travel just to see the Taj Mahal and there is plenty to do if you want to stay in the Agra area for a while longer.
An Indian market is just one of the things you can do after visiting the Taj Mahal, offering a selection of just about everything, from the local jubbas, to Asian party dresses and herbs and spices. The atmosphere surrounding the markets is nothing short of electric and it is almost guaranteed that you will never have experienced anything quite like it. There are a few special markets which take place throughout the year, however, even if you don’t get to experience one of these, the buzz you get off attending the market stalls is great.
For a day trip, you may wish to visit Goa. If you need a break from the hustle and bustle of the Indian towns, there is no better place to retreat to than the white sandy beaches of Goa. It is the smallest state of India and its difficult to believe the exotic landscape is part of the busy roads of India. Offering the best form of escapism, with the perfect cocktail of nature, including the Dudsagar waterfalls to the crystal blue seas. It is to the West of India and it may be difficult to get there if you are at the other side of the country, therefore it is best to plan your trip before you travel.
