Keep reading for the valid reasons for visiting India, and keep in mind that this is just the tip of the iceberg:
1. Backwaters in Alleppey
Hop on a boat & coast through the old villages in Alleppey. There isn’t much water to be seen; it might give you feel that you’re floating on grass. Let the arm workout get going, get into the lush landscape of India, and spend the entire day out on the boat don’t forget your personal guide for approx $10 per individual.
2. Beach Parties in Goa
The fact is, Goa is the spot for nightlife and party animal in India. Our frequent traveler buddies often say that events here have such a positive energy and sense of cultural community. If you are a beach lover than an urban explorer, Goa could be one of the best reasons to visit in India. Be careful not to plan your trip during the rainy season as it will seriously ruin as it will be limiting your party animal in you.
3. Manic Streets in New Delhi
Streets like Main Bazar are one of the oldest cities in the world. There’s no pavement out here, just you will find dirt & dust all over. The sights & the smell you cannot forget. It’s quite funny, few people who listen to this think it to be a worst nightmare, while others just sigh it by saying HOLY SHIT culture shock. But we loved the place though. When it comes to accommodations in hotel rooms, cleanliness & safety are a must. We came across a beautiful hostel right on the Bazar strip. Be sure to stay at Smyle Inn, which is one of the best best places. The people are lovely & very much friendly. If you ask politely, the rickshaw drivers will let you ride the rickshaw. That way you can enjoy the cool air.
4. Taj Mahal in Agra
Everyone goes to the Taj Mahal, but some miss out on the great Tomb of I’timād-ud-Daulah, or commonly known as the “Baby Taj Mahal”. It’s next-door to the Taj, and extremely amazing. Instead of moving around with thousands of tourists, you get the whole place by yourself to go on photography frenzy. You can have interaction with the locals. Entrance fee: Approx $1.60.
5. The Cremations in Varanasi
This experience has left me speechless. We had just arrived to Varanasi & walked along the Ganges River to watch the kids playing cricket. After someone told us to follow him, we wrapped around the corner only to find 13 cremations going on with hundreds of mourning friends & family overlooking. The closer we got, the more we could feel the heat of the scorching fires, and smells that we will never be able to forget. As the families would carry the cloth wrapped bodies down the stairs, cows would go behind & eat the flowers that would get fallen from the open casket.
These cremations have been going on from hundreds of years, and the coals at the top of the burning Ghat have never gone out. People urge that their bodies be burned and ashes get poured in the Ganga as it is one of the holy places. In other words, they come at this place to die.
