Mesmerizing, exotic, and historic yet viewed by some as chaotic and overwhelming, these enigmatic and conflicting features make India inevitably appealing. To say that India is big and vast is an understatement. After all, India used to be a subcontinent. Its size makes way for a wide variety of activities it can offer to its eager visitors from frolocking along its coastline, trekking the Himalayas, boating along its backwaters, or discovering jaw-dropping structures left by the Mughal Empire. See the Taj Mahal, stay in a former palace, join a yoga retreat-- India will let you experience what royal treatment is all about and at the same time, let you get out of your comfort zone. These are just one of the many reasons that shaped the nation to what travelers know as incredible India.
