In a country of almost limitless wanders, Delhi is a good place to start. Visit the Red Fort and Humayun's Tomb, and take a ride in a tuk-tuk through the crowded city streets. The beautiful Taj Mahal can be visited from Delhi as a longish day trip,. Further afield, you can take an elephant safari to spot tigers at the Bandhavgarh National Park. Mumbai is another must-see Indian city. Shop at the frenetic and colourful markets, see an Indian dance performance, go to a cricket match and stroll along Marine Drive Chowpatty. Kerala is one of the most popular regions for beach holidays, particularly Kovalam.
Goa is the destination of choice for many young people, while many Westerners with an interest in genealogy are visiting destinations like Pondicherry and Kolkata to find out more about ancestors who were involved with the British Raj – whoever you are, you'll find something to enjoy!
