India is an incredibly diverse country to visit with a multitude of people to meet and experiences to be had. There are a variety of landscapes: from incredible golden beaches to snow-covered mountains, which loom over the country and impale the skyline. The serrated mountain tops create a magnificent horizon, especially when watching the sunrise/sunset in a city such as Bangalore.

India offers fantastic cuisine, stunning architecture and a very up and coming nightlife, with a wide range of bars and incredible cinema. India a country that is proud of how rich in history it remains, but it is also simultaneously embracing new age culture with feisty festivals and cities that shine under neon lights.

It you are open-minded and enjoy the idea of meeting a variety of interesting people, then India may be the destination for you, as it is splendidly multi-cultural and multi-dimensional. Home to more than one billion people, India bristles with an eclectic mix of races and cultures.

Remember that if you want to go you’ll need a TEFL certification and a working visa. Flights to India can be reasonably expensive, but you can get a good price if you shop around. Regardless, the cost of living in India is quite low, so you can make up for what you spend on flights.

If you are a fan of cricket or Indian cinema then you’ll find yourself immersed in conversation of that sort from the incredibly welcoming Indian locals. If you want to experience a country that offers something a little different from the norm, then India may be perfect for you.
