As the second most populated country in the world, India is busy streets, noisy markets and bumpy rickshaw rides but it's also a kaleidoscope of colours, home to friendly locals as well as some of the most important icons in world history like the emphatic Taj Mahal.

Located in Southern Asia, India is populated by 1.25 billion people from all walks of life including Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs. With over 21,000 k.m. stretching between the borders, with Nepal, China and Pakistan neighbouring in the north and the vast Indian Ocean on the doorstep of the south, India's landscape is vast, diverse and often overwhelming.

Famed for it's unique cuisine, vibrant festivals and some of the world's most fascinating temples, India is definitely one for the bucket list. Embrace the busy streets, barter at the bazaars and be sure to dazzle your taste-buds with the hottest curry on the menu at the local food markets; it's all part of what makes India so incredible.

Best way to get around

Train

A visit to India is not complete without a ride on a sleeper train. The train service is good for long, overnight journeys as well as shorter day journeys. 

Metro

The Metro rail system is an easy way to navigate big cities. Some even have routes to international airports, which are a quicker alternative to car journeys in stand-still traffic. 

Plane

Fly between cities if you don't have much time to spare. India has a number of budget airlines offering good deals on domestic flights.
