India is one of the few countries in the world that has made a somewhat successful leap from ancient culture straight into the 21st century. The startling difference between the ancient and the super-modern can best be seen in Delhi – modern New Delhi and the Old Town with its narrow streets and busy street markets. In Goa you will find lovely beaches and modern resorts, while Orissa State has lots of ancient temples. Don’t miss a trip to Agra to see the famous Taj Mahal and the Buddhist Cave Temples in Ajanta. Explore the country’s myriad parks, biosphere reserves and wildlife sanctuaries with their rich fauna and flora. You can go on a camel safari in the desert or hiking and trekking in the magnificent mountains.
