A Holiday in India is sure to be brimming with life. From the moment you arrive, the country’s irrepressible energy teases you with all the endless possibilities for adventure. The only difficulty is deciding where to begin: a visit to the majestic Taj Mahal or a trek through the Rajasthan desert on camel back?
Planning holidays in India
New Delhi is four and a half hours ahead of London time. Flights from New Delhi to London are frequent, with a direct flight taking a little over 9 hours. While the climate varies dramatically across the regions, India has three distinct seasons: summer (March – May), monsoon (June – October) and winter (November – February). Marked by sunny skies and day temperatures perfect for exploring the happy chaos of India’s cities, winter is an ideal time to plan holidays in India. There are many transport options while in India including the famous autorickshaws, taxis, trains, buses and domestic flights for longer journeys.
Places to visit while on holidays in India
Watching the sunrise on the white sand beaches of Goa is an ideal way to ease into a new day while on holiday in India. For film lovers, Mumbai cannot be missed. Home to the Bollywood film industry, Indian superstars can be glimpsed around town, dining at some of the most prestigious Mumbai restaurants. Spirituality of every tradition flourishes in India. Pilgrims flock to the ancient city of Varanasi to bathe in the River Ganges, the most sacred river to Hindus. For those keen on the pursuit of happiness, the Dalai Lama gives teachings on Buddhism from his residence in the hilly terrain of Dharamsala, in northern India. No matter your destination in India, there will always be a tea seller, offering travellers endless (and comforting) cups of the sugary, spice infused tea, known as chai.
