What to do in India
India is the seventh largest country in the world and is one of Asia’s most visited destinations. Travellers flock to India every year for its historical sites, brilliant natural and manmade landscapes, lively bazaars, and world-famous festivals and cuisine. If you’re planning to travel the world, India is a great place to start.
Start your photo collection of historical landmarks with the ivory-white beauty of the Taj Mahal in Agra. You may have seen it in pictures or in movies, but you’ll still be in awe when you see it in person. Bring your camera to India’s other icons like Delhi’s Red Fort, the Golden Temple in Punjab, and the majestic Hawa Mahal in Jaipur.
Have a spiritual experience as you visit India’s most famous, and most gorgeous, temples like the ISKCON Temple in Vrindavan, Tamil Nadu’s Kanchipuram Temples, Pali’s Ranakpur Temple, and fly to Delhi for the Akshardham Temple and Laxminarayan Temple.
After the divine, go for the daring and have an adventure in India’s great outdoors. Trek the beautiful Valley of Flowers. Go white water rafting in Subansiri. Take to the skies on a hot air balloon in Lonavala. Hear the roar of your engine as you ride a motorcycle across the salt dessert at Great Rann of Kutch, or ride the gentle giants of Elephant Safari in Kothamangalam.
Get to know the culture and join India’s festivals like the dazzling Diwali festival of lights or the vibrant Holi festival. And take a little piece of India with you and go shopping in Delhi’s Chandi Chowk, Kolkata’s New Market, and Goa’s Anjuna Flea Market for the tea. Don’t forget to fly to Mumbai for Crawford Market and to get the best bargains for clothes in Fashion Street.
Choosing where to start your trip in India is an adventure in itself. To help get you started, here’s a guide to India from a fellow Aussie traveller.
When to visit India
The best time to visit India is during the high season from December to March when the weather is most comfortable and pleasant. Before your trip, remember that the locals speak some English but Hindi is their official language, so bring a good phrasebook to help you on trip.
Check out Smartraveller for travel documents you’ll need, because Australians have to secure a visa to fly to India.
