India has so much to offer and is a truly unique travel destination. Stories and myths don't always paint India in a positive light but there are so many glowing reports from those who have made the effort. They have been transformed by their experience of the culture and the people, and wished they had done so earlier.
India's natural attractions range from deserts to the magnificent Himalayas and mighty river systems. The many colourful cultural and religious traditions and festivals of Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Jains are an attraction not to be missed. India's rich history is showcased by its spectacular ruins, palaces, fortresses, and temples. The list goes on...
Travel in India can be confronting. There is extreme wealth and vast poverty. The way society functions is vastly different to Australia and the regulations can create complications.
Nevertheless, for all its barriers for western tourists, India is a 'must see' destination. A recent tour group that Viv took on a land and river cruise package had many misgivings but came back having enjoyed themselves immensely. The WOW factor is easy to find on any visit to this amazing country.
