A friend from the US once asked me what’s India Like?

It actually a very interesting question cause unlike many other countries India is actually very different in different parts of the country, due to the various cultures, invasions and the rich history. Also the climate varies significantly from place to place.

In the North part of India (eg. Delhi) is extreme climates.. very hot in summer, cold in winter.

Further up North (Leh) is perpetually cold.. and snows as well. In the nearby areas, can also go to the highest motorable road in the world!

South there are lots of beaches.. and climate is tropical.. we have some beautiful islands as well namely Andaman & Nicobar and Lakshadweep.

West cost (Goa) has very good beach and popular holiday place. Also Kerala on the south west side has lovely beaches and famous for Ayurvedic massages!

Bombay, where I live, the climate is much like California, not too hot, cold but it rains a lot during June-September. Its also very busy place like New York.. and every one is running all the time 🙂

There are other interesting places as well, on the east, there are places like Cherrapunji which has the highest rainfall in the world..

India has a choice of hilly regions (know as Hill stations in India), beaches and many places of historic importance. Its like a buffet, you can pick the place based on what you are looking for.

Hope that gives you an idea of the diversity:) and BTW thats not all. All these different regions have completely different people, language, food !
