Photo of India

India offers visitors a wide variety of entirely different experiences. These extremes are due to India’s vast size and enormous population which acts as an intersection of wealth and poverty, a mix of religions and languages. The diversity of India continues throughout the landscape where the Himalayas meet the lush forests which span to the Thar Desert.

The interwoven lifestyles found in India ensure a great variety of things to see and do. The possibilities are as limitless as the languages spoken so you can take in the country’s natural wonders with a safari expedition, or a stroll down to the banks of the Ganges to catch a glimpse of the sacred river, or immerse yourself in the essence of India by wandering through a bazaar and smelling the fresh spices and examining the brightly coloured and intricately detailed saris or joining in the celebration at one of the many religious festivals. Some travellers find these extremes in geography and lifestyle overwhelming, but it is the thriving merger of these extremes that gives India the colour and chaos that make up its spirit.

About Indian Rail

I'm going to travel to India for the first time. I would like to do that on train. Checked few seats and saw there are various classes. Was buying the first class (AC1) but not sure now as -- according to the various websites - the window of these classes can not be opened. Can anyone shed lights on this? Please advise on the best seat which is clean and will allow me to sightsee while on board

Goa ?

My husband is 50yr in December and I know would love a trip to India. Everybody seems to be suggesting Goa as he is vegan, I'm veggie and they seem to think that this is the safer 'bet' When's the best time to go?

Should we go all inclusive or bed and breakfast as we have heard that it is cheap to eat and drink when there?

Thanks (small international traveller of Barnsley, South Yorks!)

December is a great time to go, though air fares will be expensive after 15th. See for weather. And yes, food is cheap and varied, especially for veggies. B+B for me!
