Accommodation is relatively inexpensive, eating out costs very little and getting around the country by train is incredibly affordable, too.
It’s no wonder the World Economic Forum Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report ranked India as 10th best for price competitiveness.
The Natraj Dining Hall in Udaipur is a well-known eatery where people often dine.
The food keeps coming until you have had enough! And you will only be charged a mere 120 Rupees (€1.52). Now that’s good value!
Compared to the US, food is more than 3 times cheaper.
3. Take in a game of Cricket
Cricket is a national obsession in India. But if you can only take in one game during your trip, be sure it is played in the HPCA Stadium in Dharamshala.
This must be the most picturesque sports venue in the world. It is situated at an altitude of 1,457m above sea level and you can enjoy an incredible view of the snow-capped Himalayan Mountains during breaks in play!
4. The world’s most famous building
One of the most recognisable buildings in the world, the Taj Mahal is a stunning symbol of India’s rich history.
With its immense beauty, it is no surprise that the Taj Mahal is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and attracts over seven million tourists each year.
It is considered the finest example of Mughal architecture and is built of shimmering white marble that appears to change colour depending on the time of day.
