India: Reasons you’ll want to go back time and time again
Time and time again you will hear people talking about what an amazing time they had in India, for some people they will even go as far as saying it was life changing! I think the fact that it is the birth place of the oldest civilisation in the world is reason enough to visit, add to that the amazing sites, friendly locals, of course the food and you will have the ultimate holiday destination.
I don’t think people need too much persuasion to head to India for a holiday, the only thing you need to do is make sure that you enough time because there is so much to see. It’s no longer an issue getting there because there are flights to India from Australia daily on a wide variety of airlines. The best part is that you will be able to find a flight to suit most budgets, from the cheap and cheerful no frills to the One World Alliance airlines they are all flying to India!
So once you’ve booked your flight it’s time to start looking forward to everything that you are going to find and experience in this magical country. Having been to India many times I want to share with you my favourite things about the place.
Of all the countries that I have visited I think it is difficult for any to rival the culture that you will find in India, it’s second to none. It isn’t a culture in it’s infancy, it is a culture that has evolved over a period of more than 5,000 years. As I mentioned above, it’s the birthplace of civilisation. India has been through a journey, from Maharaja’s, to being colonised, independence to the lightening fast development that is now taking place – there are so many secrets waiting for you to discover.
How could this not make the list of my favourite things about India. If you think that you’ve eaten good Indian food back home in Australia you haven’t tasted nothing yet! The food varies from region to region but one thing that doesn’t is the taste, it is one of the parts of India that will stay with you for a long time after you have gone. If you are planning on sticking to a diet forget all about it and leave that at home, it would be a crime to go to India and not eat everything that you see.
Although some areas might be chaotic it doesn’t mean that the people are any less friendly. Many a time people would force themselves further inside a cramped bus so that I had enough room to get on, I was even given free rides on people’s motorcycles to my destination. I drank so much tea it became too much, people were constantly asking me to join them and to chat. Everyday I went back to the hotel smiling.
