Full of eastern promise and exotic delights, the beautiful country of India is an overpowering experience that will stay with visitors for years. In cities, the sights, smells and sounds speak of a populous country that runs with ramshackle efficiency – watch the enterprising rickshawallas expertly weave between beeping traffic. Nearer the coast, beach towns like Kerela and Goa inject a fascinating culture within a beach holiday. And world-famous sights like the Taj Mahal, Golden Temple and the pink Palace of the Winds are not to be missed.
Visitors will need to prepare for different societal standards, hygiene rules, and a potential dose of ‘Delhi belly’. But taking out good travel insurance will go some way in achieving the inner peace sought from a holiday to India.
