CAN I TRAVEL TO INDIA?
Home to one of the Seven Wonders of the world, Bollywood, stunning beaches, amazing wildlife and incredible culture. A trip to India is exactly what we're craving (the food too!), but before we get too carried away thinking of all the incredible things India has to offer, the big question. When can I travel to India? What are the travel restrictions for India? We may not know all the answers just yet, but here's what I do know about getting into incredible India right now.
WHAT'S THE LATEST TRAVEL UPDATE FOR INDIA?
What The Indian Government Says:
The government of India is not allowing any international commercial flights into the country for tourists unless you are a healthcare professional, journalist and some business travellers other than that, the restrictions are very strict on who is allowed to/from India. IF you are eligible to travel to India, you will have to quarantine for 14 days once you have arrived. HERE is more information on travel restrictions when going to India.
What The UK Government Says:
The UK government and FCO advise against all but essential international travel; however, there are no flights to India that are available for international tourists. Which means we are just going to have to put any urges to book a flight and go to India on hold. However, that doesn't mean we need to put our dreams of India (and it's fantastic food) on hold! Check here for more information on travel to India, from the UK government.
So, can you travel to India? At the moment, no but don't stress because we will be able to get back to India one day, so for now daydreaming will just have to do. Get to planning your Indian adventure!
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO VISIT INDIA?
Of course, when planning an amazing trip to an amazing destination, it goes without saying that you want to know when the best time to visit! So, when is the best time to visit India? It's between October and March when the weather is most likely to be dry, sunny and warm. December and January are much cooler months with April and May having high humidity, thunderstorms and increasing temperatures. November onwards is the best time to visit southern India as the monsoon season has ended.
India is a country with endless offers, from multiple cities and beaches to choose from with each one being different from the other. India has got it all, no matter what type of travel you are after! Fancy just having a beer on the beach, topping up your tan? Wandering around the busy streets of Delhi or watching the sunrise from the mesmerizing Taj Mahal? Well, you've come to the right place! Here are just a few of the must-dos in India...
You can't go to India and not go to a cooking class, simple. We can already smell all the spices. You'll get a real taste for Indian culture (pun very much intended)! You'll learn some traditional Indian dishes, and then enjoy the tasty meal you've made. So don't mess it up, no pressure! When going back home, you'll be able to show off all your new cooking skills, learnt from the best! After becoming the next Masterchef, you'll be heading off to Agra, home to one of the Seven Wonders!
Imagine the sun rising over one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture, one of the seven wonders of the world to be exact! No need to imagine anymore though as you'll get to marvel at the incredible views of the Taj Mahal at sunrise on this trip! Here's a fact for ya; did you know that the Taj Mahal was built as a romantic gesture to house the tomb of the emperor's wife?! And we can't even get a text back! After taking in the picturesque postcard moment, you'll learn about how it was built and the story behind this unreal monument as well as visiting the tombs. Next, you will be heading to a beautiful palace for lunch, a cheeky TruExlcusive, before journeying to Ranthambore National Park. Can't get much better than a beautiful sunrise at the Taj Mahal and scenic lunch!
Make sure your inner photographer comes out because this morning you'll be spotting some unreal wildlife (fingers crossed), it will definitely help if you've got the eye of the tiger (sorry, we had to). An array of local wildlife to be spotted, such as monkeys, peacocks, deer, a few crocs and if lucks on your side hopefully some wild tigers, a very surreal moment! You won't be finding any Carole Baskins here! After a fantastic experience on the safari, you have the rest of the day free to enjoy the sunshine and relax.
Whether you'll become the next big Bollywood star or chef, you do not want to miss out on these experiences in India. So although we may not be able to get there right now, we know we will be able to again one day that's for sure! For now, we've got to dream onnnnn (the wise words of Aerosmith)!
As Always TruFam,
Don't Quit Your Day Dream
