1. India's Geographical Diversity 

The land of India has an astonishing array of natural wonders.

India also has a variety of alluring yet undiscovered island getaways, from the heavenly Munroe Island in the backwaters of Kerala to the picturesque Havelock and Neil Islands in the Andaman. India is home to the largest river delta in the world formed by Ganges into the Bay of Bengal. With gorgeous beaches, wonderful landscapes and unique biodiversity, these places pack an assortment of treasures for visitors.  

2. India is home to 40 UNESCO World Heritage Sites

India has an illustrious history to boast of, from being the site to one of the most ancient civilizations in the world to being a blend of diverse religions, cultures and topographies. With the eventful reigns of many empires across the different regions of India, history has gifted the country with a wealth of monuments to be proud of. Each of them captures the true essence of India and has a story to tell of the bygone eras, in its own special way. UNESCO has identified 40 sites in India as World Heritage Sites because of their significance for education, science, and culture. These sites illustrate technological excellence, artistic creativity, and mark a specific period in history. 

3. Paradise for Food Lovers

Indian cuisine dates back over 5000 years. Just like the country itself, India has the most diverse cuisine in the world.  You will encounter mouth-watering cuisines and dishes at every nook and corner of this food-loving country.  Indian cuisine has intoxicating aromas, fresh blends of spices, and rich ingredients that make it unique and special. This land of 1.3 billion-plus offers one of the widest possible spreads to the discerning traveller, given the fact that cuisines and tastes change every few kilometers, just as the dialects do. 

4. Warm Hospitality

India’s hospitality-focused culture is one of the most significant characteristics of India. People in India pay the highest regard to their guests and value hospitality. In fact, Indians live by the popular saying, "Atithi Devo Bhava", which means that the guest is God's own reflection. 

Namaste is the customary Indian greeting that is not only used to welcome guests but also acknowledge strangers, working both as a salutation and valediction. The gesture is said to express courtesy, honor, gratitude, and hospitality to the other person. 

5. Easily accessible from many international destinations

There are 34 operating international airports in India out of which New Delhi and Mumbai are the busiest ones. Both of these airports have international accessibility from major airport hubs around the globe. There are numerous group transportation options available and the local transportation system in India is a well-developed network that connects the busiest locations and the most isolated areas.
