Atithi Devo Bav- “the guest is God”. This word perfectly describes the image of India. India is the largest democratic country of the world. One of the oldest and still prevailing culture which dates back to nearly 10000 years can be seen, felt and lived with in India. India is the only place in the world where you can meet and see the different culture, traditions, food, and people of different culture and tribes. Below are some few points why you should look forward India for your perfect holiday destination.
1. Huge Country
India is a vast country that’s just over one-third of the size of the United States. To the North, there are the Himalayas. To the south, beaches and oceans.To the west, desert with modern cities. And to the East tribal territory.
2. Great Value Destination country
India is often thought of as a backpacker destination with grotty hotel rooms and dirt everywhere. Let me assure you that this definitely isn’t the reality. You can travel as cheaply or as lavishly as you want in India, and that’s definitely part of its appeal as a tourist destination. The luxury segment of the market offers some mesmerizing accommodations, such as authentic palace hotels. Alternatively you might prefer a quaint guesthouse or homestay. Options, such as these top budget hotels in India, abound. These days, even the backpacker hostels in India are modern, clean, and welcoming!
3. Warm Hospitality
There’s a saying in India, "Athithi Devo Bhava", which means "the guest is God". Indians consider it a huge honor to have guests in their home, and go out of their way to please them. There’s nothing like Indian hospitality. And, as a result of the growing popularity of stays in India, there are plenty of opportunities to experience it.
4. Broaden your thinking
India is place that everyone should visit once in their lives to get out of their comfort zones and get a different perspective on life. Every state/city has different culture to deal with. However, you’ll quickly come to appreciate what you have back home and how fortunate you really are. It will change your perception for the country.
5. Is it safe to travel in India
Unfortunately, India has received a lot of negative publicity recently in regards to women’s safety. However, the good news is that some parts of India are much more tourist friendly than others. In that regard, you should co-ordinate with the government approved travel agents and hotels if you are making online hotel bookings. Following guidelines from the travel agents and government will make your travel a hassle free.
7. Exploring Spirituality
India can be very inspiring and refreshing for the soul. Many people come to India to learn yoga, meditate, or spend time at an ashram. Another moving experience is to take part in an evening aarti (fire worship) along the Ganges river at either Rishikesh, Haridwar or Varanasi.
8. Bygone Era History and Architecture
One of the best things we always marvel at in India is the magnificent architecture found all over the country, and it varies so much where ever you go. From the temples to the Fort and palaces to the complete historic cities can be explored in India. Not only this India is very rich in its Bio-diversity. The UNESCO heritage wildlife parks and Jungles with different animal breeds and birds from all over the world in the Natural Habitation will leave you speechless.
9. Spoil your taste buds - Lovely foods
Indian food can take a bit of getting used to for some people, but it really is worth it. You may be surprised to find that Indian cuisine is vastly different to the standard fare served up in most Indian restaurants, which is in fact predominantly north Indian cuisine. People have a wrong Mythology that Indian eats Spicy food. From state to state you will find different food consumed and sold.
10. Ladies favourite - Shopping
Shopping is the favourite hobby for the ladies and India is the perfect destination for the local handicrafts to the world class branded showrooms can be explored in India. Each region tends to specialize in a particular industry that’s been handed down over generations for the handicrafts.
