Travel restrictions have finally been relaxed for Indians. Festival season is on the go and with holidays coming around, it is not a shock that most people will be looking for places they can travel with friends, families or even alone. While some people will stick to taking a tour within India, some will go the extra mile and catch a flight to see the weather outside India. Since the pandemic came with plenty of restrictions, travel enthusiasts were forced to live within the borders. But now, the long-awaited holiday is just a booking away.
Indians are enthusiastic about everything and it is fair to say that sitting at home and swiping through pictures of others’ vacations is not something that we prefer. India is home to a variety of destinations from beaches to hill stations, from party spots to spiritual places. We have it all. India is the place where the largest mountain range is found. And not only this, India is a peninsula too because the vast coastline covers the southern part of India from both sides. And how can we forget about the great Thar Desert in Rajasthan? There is a lot to see in India apart from the generic places. There are hidden gems and religious places where the true essence of the country can be seen and felt.
Looking for spots outside of India? Do not worry because we will cover that as well!
