India Travel Guide

by our India expert Paul Baderman
 
Paul BadermanThere are so many Indias. It’s an easy mistake to think of it as a one-country travel destination. Visiting is an onion-skin experience as more and more layers are revealed. It’s ancient and modern, wildlife and cities, a mix of 3rd world and ‘tiger’ economies, crammed with life … and just occasionally, wild and solitary. From the sun-soaked beaches of Goa and the south or the lakeside calm of Rajasthan’s Udaipur – another of the world’s ‘Venices’ - on to the incredible historic beauty of Agra and the Taj Mahal. Go from the hustle-bustle of a modern metropolis such as Delhi or Mumbai, to the cool of the northern hills and mountains. All criss-crossed by a road/rail transport system best described as ‘interesting’. Uncrowded game reserves with tigers, elephants (Indian,of course), peacocks, and even lions (in Gujerat). Very crowded highways with ox-carts, tuk-tuks, and huge convoys of trucks. A single visit shows so much; a lifetime could not encompass all.
