Best Places to Travel in India

India’s tourism industry is booming with new opportunities due to government support. Every year millions of national and international travelers tour India to see its culture heritage, natural beauty and wildlife reserve. However, since India is a very vast country, planning what to see on a tour to India can be a really daunting task especially if you have to choose destinations between the South, North, East or West of India. Whether on a spiritual quest, a cultural visit or a relaxing holiday, it is advisable that you plan your India tour in such a way that you are easily able to cover a few important destinations of a particular region.

India can be divided into four regions i.e. North, South, East and West and each one of these four regions nurture cultures that are unique only to them. Moreover, these regions are also different from each other with respect to people, architecture, food, and languages spoken. Though, it will not be impossible for you to cover popular tourist destinations like Rajasthan, Kerala, Goa and the Golden Triangle in a single trip, try to avoid it as it may lead to exhaustion.
