From the imposing peaks of the Himalayan peaks to sublime Indian Ocean coastline, India is a vast Asian country with a diverse terrain and a history that goes back 5,000 years. It is a land of extremes: rich and poor, modern and ancient all sit side by side in a hectic, colourful nation. [ReadMoreMob]

From Mughal Empire landmarks in the north such as Delhi’s Red Fort to Agra’s iconic Taj Mahal mausoleum, India shakes the senses and stirs the soul. Pilgrims bathe in the Ganges in Varanasi, yoga-lovers seek sanctuary in Rishikesh, and travellers seek out serene Kochi and its beguiling mix of giant cantilever fishing nets, ancient synagogues and mosques, Portuguese homes and the vanishing remnants of the British Raj.

Traditional rural communities lie next to vibrant, modern cities like Mumbai with its western skyscrapers, multicultural flavours and traditional bazaars. The intense city ignites curiosity, and is in stark contrast to the humble coastal city of Porbandar, the birthplace of Gandhi and India's spiritual beginnings. [ReadMoreDesk]

Loved for its variety, spices and tantalizing flavours, Indian cuisine is world-renowned. Whether it's enjoying a quick bite from a busy street vendor or dining at a fantastic 5-star restaurant, visitors to India's cities and villages are in for a culinary treat.
