Top Places to Visit in India 2022
India is a land of many faces and cultures and has become one of the top travel destinations for people around the world. While countries like Britain and India have had a long history together, India has also become interesting to many people all over the world because of its spiritual heritage. Whether you are simply looking for a good time, wanting to see a different culture or enlightenment, India is the place to go!
Because India has many different regions and states, a traveler has a huge variety of destinations to pick from. There are many famous provinces with their own historical and cultural selling points, such as Delhi, Goa, Gujarat, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal.
Maharashtra is perhaps India’s most popular tourist state, with at least 5 million foreign tourists visiting the area annually. This accounts for almost a quarter of India’s tourism industry, so Maharashtra has become one of the quickest developing parts of India. This state is a place to see the old culture with the new, as well as the juxtaposition of cosmopolitan Mumbai with the rugged beauty of the three UNESCO World Heritage sites located in the state – Ajanta Caves, Ellora Caves, and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus.
Mumbai is one of the most vibrant and lively parts of India. It is home to the world-famous Bollywood scene, which is actually the world’s largest film production industry. Mumbai also has miles and miles of clubs, shopping centres and some of the best food in the world.
When you see Mumbai, make sure you check out the Elephanta Caves, the Haji Ali Mosque and also the Bombay High Court building, which is an excellent example of British colonial architecture.
For the more adventurous tourist, Maharashtra state offers great thrill-seeking opportunities such as rock climbing, rafting, scuba diving, as well as para-sailing. Just a short drive away from Mumbai you can also visit some of the most beautiful and untouched landscapes on the Indian subcontinent, in national parks such as Tadoba.
Mumbai is considered the financial and entertainment capital of India and should feature prominently on anyone’s visitor list. It is an extremely vibrant city with a very active nightlife side-by-side with beautiful historical traditions, stunning architecture in many different styles showcasing the history of India. In addition, the city is a pilgrimage destination for people of many different faiths.
When your time in Maharashtra is up, hop on your Mumbai to Goa flight and explore India’s most popular beach town. Goa! WIth coastlines reaching along the Arabian sea, the former Portuguese colony is a source of fun, frolics, parties and relaxation.
When you go on a trip to India, there are many things to take care of beforehand. You will need a travel insurance policy, you will most likely need to see a doctor to get some shots, and you may also need to ask the Indian embassy for various permits if you wish to see restricted areas.
