India is a feast for the senses, from the soaring Himalayas in the north to the tropical beaches of Goa in the south. Throughout six major climates and 29 states, you’ll find breathtaking religious architecture coupled with sensational spices and lively festivals.

The warmth of its people is epitomized by the Sanskrit verse, Athithi Devo Bhava, which translates to “the guest is equivalent to God.” Show appreciation and respect for the rich mix of diversity, and you should be treated hospitably in return.

Fast facts about India

Where is it? India is a South Asian nation that juts into the Indian Ocean, wedged between Pakistan and Bangladesh.

How do I get there? Direct flights are available from major US hubs like JFK in New York City and ATL in Atlanta, though you might find cheaper fares to India by stopping over somewhere in between.

When should I go? October and March are some of the best times to travel to India. Both months are outside of monsoon season and avoid cold winters in the north and hot summer months.

What should I do? Wander through epic bazaars, marvel at medieval mausoleums, partake in a Hindi festival and taste delicacies bursting with cumin, coriander and garam masala. These are just a few experiences to enjoy in India.

Bottom line

Overall, India is spellbinding. Embrace the unending energy and give in to the allure of its bright colors, strong tastes and long, winding railways. The biggest challenge? Seeing it all in just one go.
