India is an absolutely fascinating country. A trip to India is always incredible, whether we like it or not, it changes us, we do not come back unscathed. Discovered a multi-faceted country, an absolutely exciting world that stimulates all the senses. This year, spent your vacations in India to discover and deepen my knowledge of Indian culture and Indian passion.
Here are 10 amazing and typical experiences that you can only live in India.
- See the Taj Mahal
The Taj Mahal is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, it deserves this name. It is without a doubt one of the most magnificent, impressive and majestic monuments. The Taj Mahal leaves a window open to so much beauty. It is magnificent from afar as close up, it is enough to approach to see the precious stones encrusted in the marble. The sunrise is sublime, the sunset makes turn his pink marble white. And it does not matter if there are many people or that the entrance is expensive; if you go to India, do not miss the visit of the Taj Mahal, it alone justifies the trip.
- Experiment Bollywood
Indian films and especially those of Bollywood fascinate the people of the whole country. Bollywood is the film industry that produces the most movies in the world. So go to a cinema, even if you do not understand the language (movies are not subtitled), it’s a pretty cool experience. Otherwise, watch a DVD with the subtitles, the Indian movies are really entertaining, even if they last 3 hours. In addition, seeing a Bollywood film helps to understand the Indian culture, mentalities and way of life. In the meantime, choose a movie with Shah Rukh Khan, the Indian mega-star and you will not be disappointed.
If you are in Bombay, you can also do appearing during a day on the set of a Bollywood movie. With Sarah the experience pleased us.
- See a cricket match
Cricket is a religion in India! An Indian friend posted a day on Facebook that despite their divisions between Hindus and Muslims, the Indians lived together because the real religions of India that reunite everyone are Bollywood and cricket. So believe me, it’s not so easy to understand the rules of cricket, this game that comes from the English, but the atmosphere is incredible. And, in the year India had the Home Cricket World Cup in March 2016. But it’s really a different and original experience to live among the Indians.
- Take a rickshaw
The rickshaw this kind of typically Asian rickshaw! Anyway, you will not be able to go to India without taking a rickshaw! It’s the taxi from India, it’s really cheap, but you have to negotiate, except in Bombay where there is a very nice counter.
- Take the train
Taking the luxury train in India is an adventure, it’s a different experience that does not resemble any other country, just for meeting with the Indians. The doors of the trains are always open and the Indians are often bent, see half out to get some fresh air or because it is crowded.
There are many luxury trains in India such as Palace on Wheels, Maharajas Express, Deccan Odyssey and Golden Chariot are also ruuning through Indian Railways.
Even the local Bombay train is fascinating, if you are a woman, get in the wagon for women and admire the beautiful colorful saris.
