It’s the land where sacred cows freeload through the streets and locals go gaga for Bollywood soundtracks, India’s weirdness will totally rock your world.
Travel in India is pretty much like nowhere else in the world. It’s mind-blowing, mind-expanding, mind-boggling and anything but mind-numbing. And with about 1.2 billion people sharing the space, there’s probably that many experiences to be had. In fact almost any experience you can have on the planet can be found here.
That includes an all-night chai-athon while you wait for a cow to finish its nap on the train tracks. In the north you can ride a camel through the Thar Desert, meet the hippies of Jodphur, and live on lassis. Then there’s that little place called the Taj Mahal.
In the south it’s all about the go-slow. There are Kerala’s canals to cruise, Goa’s beaches to go all beach-y on and enough coconuts to build a coconut building out of.

Ride a camel through the Thar Desert
Forget carpooling with your mates to a music festival. This is the ultimate convoy
