India

A taste of the exotic

With its vibrant colors, intoxicating smells and vivid sounds, an India vacation stimulates the senses like no other country can.

Nothing can prepare you for the experience of traveling around India. While the chaotic streets of its biggest cities may be what you were expecting, the friendliness of the locals, the vibrancy of the colors, and the extraordinary variety of cultural gems will surely take you by surprise.

On an India vacation, you’ll discover the striking contrasts between the country’s famous cities and its sleepy backwaters. You’ll experience landscapes ranging from tropical island paradise to rugged national parks, and from arid deserts to steamy jungles. Amongst it all, life has changed little in centuries and ancient temples are as much a part of everyday life as they’ve always been.

More history and interesting sites than I was aware of. Fantastic food.
Hard to deal with issues in India- poverty, garbage, beggars etc. but I think I was as prepared as possible.
Food and alcohol more expensive than what I expected.
