Whether you’re seeking culinary delights, stunning scenery, or a dose of Eastern mysticism, India is the place to be. And since the country is a modern one as well as one that honors its ancient traditions, you’ll get a well-rounded trip indeed when you decide to travel to India.

The country is massive -- and that means there are countless things to do. Here are just a few to get you going.

What to Do

Flights to India typically land you in Mumbai or Delhi, so that’s often one of the first cities travelers experience when visiting India. From Delhi, sights including the Red Fort complex and the Jama Masjid mosque will be among the first things to visit. Also nearby is Agra’s stunning Taj Mahal palace. From Mumbai -- a haven of urban chic combined with ancient neighborhoods -- you can visit the hip beaches of Goa. For the yogis among your group, you might venture to one of any number of yoga schools dotted around the country, though many more well-known establishments are located near Rishikesh and the Himalayan mountains. Wherever you are, you’ll be surrounded by vast temples and icons representing the many Hindu gods -- as well as other deities from Buddhist lore. It’s a feast for the senses, to say the least!

What to Eat

When it comes to eating in India, the question may be what to eat, but what not to eat! Indian cooking factors in all of the senses, including the sweet and the salty, as well as the creamy, spicy and savory. Your typical meals will include several small dishes served on a platter, including aromatic rice, a meat or fish dish, vegetables in a savory broth, and lots of chutney -- those pickled and fermented sides that make Indian meals just that much more delicious. Seasoned with lots of chili peppers, coconut, curry and other spices, every meal is an adventure when you travel to India.
