India is a famous holiday destination and is visited by millions of foreign tourists every year. It is important for tourists to learn as much as possible about this intriguing country. India is located in the south of the Asian continent, and borders the Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal. As far as flight connectivity is concerned, Air India and Jet Airways are the two major international carriers which connect key global cities with top Indian gateways such as Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai, and Bangalore.

India’s capital city is New Delhi, which is also a major tourist destination and boasts attractions such as  the Red Fort and India Gate. Along with New Delhi, Agra, Rajasthan, Goa, Kochi, Darjeeling, and Mysore are some of India’s top rated travel destinations. When it comes to key attractions in the country, Taj Mahal, Jim Corbett National Park, Gateway of India, the Golden Temple, and  Ajanta Caves are usually listed among the most famous tourist sites in the country.

Of course, every tourist would like to know about the weather conditions in the country before going ahead with his flight bookings. So here it goes. India has the best weather during the winter months of November to March. If it is the affordability you are looking for, plan a holiday tour to India during the month of April or October. You would do well to avoid flying to India during the summer and monsoon seasons, which is usually the period between May and August. You can also plan your holiday in the country around the major festivals celebrated here. Diwali (October-November), Holi (March), and Ganesh Chaturthi (August-September) are some of the most colourful Indian festivals you will find anywhere in the world.

Your holiday in India is incomplete unless you enjoy at least few of the country’s most delectable dishes. Butter chicken is an exceptionally popular dish and you must enjoy it while in India. Indian curries and kebabs are equally popular among tourists. For sub regional flavours, order for Rajasthani or South Indian platter. But make sure you eat at popular restaurants. You can judge the popularity of the place by the size of the crowd eating there. Also, avoid the street side fare. While the locals may find it delicious, it could lead to health hazards like diarrhoea. Talking about health, it is strongly advised that tourists avoid drinking tap water in India. Also, carry a strong mosquito-repellent with you as mosquito-borne diseases are common throughout the country.

Here are few more tips for you to remember. Dress conservatively and avoid public display of affection in any part of India. Locals may find it offensive. Always insist on travelling by meter, be it auto or taxi. Tourists must follow basic precautionary measures and be cautious about their surroundings in unknown places.
