Whether it’s a large biosphere reserve or a small village where community-based initiatives flourish, India has some splendid eco-friendly destinations. Here are some perfect places away from the urban jungles we all need an escape from every so often.
Although India was once considered to be somewhat intimidating and inaccessible foreign land, it has now become one of the most popular and affordable travel destinations in the world. India is an enormous and diverse country with large cities, rural areas, mountainous regions, deserts, and beaches.
One of India’s most historic and cosmopolitan cities, Kolkata has been at the center of activity of various civilizations at different points in time. Large populations of Chinese, Armenian, Jewish, and other immigrant communities have all called Kolkata home, and the city’s stunning architecture pays testament to its social, political, and cultural richness. These six colonial-era buildings are striking reminders of a Calcutta (present-day Kolkata) that served as capital to British India.
India is famous for its incredible culture, tasty cuisine, scenic beauty and heritage sites. An ultimate travel destination, India has so much to offer. From the southern states of Goa and Kerala with their laid-back open-mindedness to the dusty desert forts of Rajasthan, there is something ultimately enigmatic and enchanting about this great and fascinating Asian giant.
