The capital city of India, Delhi is the perfect amalgamation of old and contemporary India. With sprawling parks, landscapes, gigantic shopping malls, and swanky discs, Delhi has no dearth of culturally significant architecture, pilgrimage centers, and ancient Mughal monuments. People flock to Delhi to explore its vivacity, dynamism, and welcoming charm.
Depending on the number of days you have, you can chalk out a plan to cover all the important aspects of sightseeing, shopping, and entertainment.

The Pink City named as such after its colorful architecture has many wonders to see! Amber Palace for one is a hilltop fort adjoining a lake. Rajasthan’s Jaipur is perfect for spending an evening whilst enjoying the views of the star-studded sky with the lake as a backdrop. The Hawa Mahal called as such for its immense height and 953 windows look lovely. Comparable to a honeycombed hive it offers scenic views of the Jantar Mantar (a mesmerizing sight in itself, it’s a maze, dating back to the Mughal era!) and City Palace as well as the Sireh Deori Bazaar.
Manali is a popular hill town known for its scenic views of the Himalayas. Solang Valley & Rohtang Pass offer a fantastic view of the Himalayas. At Naggar Castle experience the old-world rustic charm to it, which makes it alluring for just about every traveler. Go to Hidimba Temple and witness rich Indian traditions and rituals in the land of the gods. If you are culturally inclined, make sure to visit Roerich Art Gallery and Get a feel of the water sprays and eclectic atmosphere while you warm up your soul. Apart from all this if you still have the energy, Manali has more to offer in the form of Tibetan Monasteries, Club House, Jogini Falls to name just a few.
5. Also known as God’s own country due to its natural beauty, Kerala is a beautiful place situated on the Malabar Coast. It’s lined with canals and palm trees and is known for its tea and coffee plantations as well as exotic wildlife, Kerala is a nature lover’s paradise! Visit the backwaters and take a canal ride through this surreal town marveling at the calm serene atmosphere all amidst what is virtually a jungle. Visit its idyllic beaches and explore the many islands within as you start off with Alappuzha Beach, Vembanad Lake, Marari Beach, Pathiramanal Islands. Kerala offers the ideal escape and yet a home away from home where one can reconnect with themselves in the best way possible.
An absolute must-visit is the Victoria Memorial, entirely made out of marble it dates back to the early nineteenth century, built at the time in the memory of Queen Victoria. Fast forward a bit, and somewhere around 1935 the Howrah bridge was built connecting Howrah to Kolkata. This intimidating structure made of crisscrossing steel beams is one of the busiest bridges in India. If that doesn’t satiate your touristy appetite visit Eden Gardens and watch a cricket match, or just walk along the Park Street in the heart of the city to experience “The Real” Kolkata. The iconic Park Street is famous for its fine restaurants, shopping at Chowringhee market and an active nightlife.
