Like to adventure out and face challenging destinations? So come and explore the secrets of India and enjoy our tips to make your trip even better!
One of the coolest places to travel that we have encountered in this climate is India. It does not want to see, feel and taste in this country with more than 1.3 billion inhabitants.
You cannot pervert India. The country is constantly changing. Entrepreneurship with spirituality is a striking feature of the new times. An example of this is the golden triangle – route between New Delhi, Agra and Jaipur.
When to go
India is one of the best challenging destinations with dozens of languages and religions – especially between October and March, when the weather is drier and milder.
In January and February is the high tourist season, adding even more people to the immense local population.
Already between April and June the sun is scorching, with average temperature of 45ºC. And between June and September it is the turn of the endless rains brought by the famous monsoons that arrive from the south.
Where to go
The capital, New Delhi, is a veritable whirlwind of sounds, colors, people and sensations. Floricultural, the city gathers bureaucrats, students, executives of multinationals, tourists, religious and traders. Traffic may seem like chaos, but they get along.
And there’s plenty to see and where to go, such as the monumental Jama Masjid Mosque and the imposing Red Fort. In the countless cafes, shops and restaurants in Connaught Place, day to day life could not be more hectic.
It is in beautiful Agra that is famous Taj Mahal, elected a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1983 and considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World since 2007.
The palace – all in white marble and precious stones (jade, amethyst, turquoise, lapis lazuli, and crystal, gold) – was erected by the Mongol emperor Shan Jahan to honor the memory of his third wife in 1631.
Jaipur, on the other hand, is unique. The pink-walled buildings in the shade of Fort Amber were once the scene of several novels, such a beauty.
Discover also the Portuguese colony of Goa, the temples of Khajuraho and Kolkata (the ancient Calcutta), Chennai (Madras), Mumbai (Bombay) and the Kozhikode (Calicute) spice warehouse.
But do not leave India without watching the sunset on the banks of the Ganges River in Varanasi.
What to Buy
India is one of the challenging destinations also at the time of shopping: you cannot leave there empty-handed. Each region has its specialty, so schedule you.
New Delhi – Handbags and wallets. But there are also many bazaars, emporiums and luxury shopping malls;
Jaipur – Famous for its lapidation of diamonds, rubies and emeralds;
Agra – Crushed white marbles of precious stones;
Rajasthan – Turban, rugs and jewels;
Varanasi – Silks of all colors.
What to eat
At the time of eating, some care is essential.
In India one eats with his hands. If you do the same, use only the right. The left is what Indians use to clean themselves when they go to the bathroom, so it is considered impure;
Take biscuits, canned juice and processed products on your travels around the country. Avoid foods on the road, trains and even on airplanes;
It costs nothing: clean your hands regularly with alcohol gel, easily found in the pharmacies there;
Avoid salads and eat only what is well cooked. Just eat the fruits that you can peel yourself;
Drink only bottled mineral water that is tightly sealed. In doubt, ask for gas; do not buy yogurts in street stalls because they usually add plain water.
