Travel to India - A Mini Guide

The world’s seventh largest, and second most populous country, India is a blend of different cultures and home to over 1.3 billion people. It’s, therefore, no surprise that millions decide to visit every year.

Indian Culture

With Indian civilisation beginning around 4,500 years ago, visitors can immerse themselves in one of the oldest—and perhaps the most unique—cultures in the world. Described by many as ‘Sa Prathama Sanskrati Vishvavara’—the first and the supreme culture—India is home to an assortment of different religions, languages, food, and more.

India is recognised as the birthplace of Hinduism and Buddhism, but its population is also comprised of Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, and several other world religions. Much of the nation’s distinctive art and architecture is rooted in spirituality, as are the various Indian holidays, such as Diwali, Onam, and Ugadi.

While over 450 languages are spoken in India, the country has no single official tongue. Hindi is spoken by most citizens in the north, and over 40% of the country in total, but it is not understood by many in the south. South Indians instead use languages such as Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam.

India's Economy

As well as its rich culture, the country’s thriving economy and wealth of business opportunities makes it alluring to corporate visitors as well.

The Indian economy has grown extremely quickly in recent years, and is predicted to be one of the top three global economic powers within the next few decades. Its young population is a major factor behind this optimistic forecast, alongside the huge foreign investment India has received and an increased integration into the global market.

India's Most Popular Destinations

Another must-visit is Agra. Home to the iconic Taj Mahal, the city’s abundance of Mughal-era buildings—including Agra Fort, Akbar’s tomb, and Itmad-ud-Daula—make it one of the most beautiful places in the world, let alone India.

Other popular destinations include Jaipur, Mumbai, and Kashmir, not to mention the hundreds of thousands of towns and villages throughout the country. These destinations give visitors a chance to experience Indian culture in a much more unique and intimate way, which is why so many visitors to India enjoy getting off the beaten track.
