One of the more inexplicable states in this world, and one that shows off a number of extreme dissimilarities in the standard of living between extremely poor and the rich, is India. It is the 7th biggest country in the globe having more than 1 billion people residing in it. You can find India as a home of legendary people, food, civilization, political contention, and a huge diversity of racial and literary.
India is safe for all levels of travelers, although there are specific areas of the country that are considered fairly dangerous in terms of health due to a lack and disregard in sanitation. The slums of India are known world-wide for being some of the worst in the world, which is unfortunate given the wealth of the nation and the absolute opposing lifestyle of those people enjoying the high life of Bollywood.
The country is broken up into a wide variety of geographical areas, from mountains to jungles to deserts, beaches, and more. Bordered to the north by the Himalayan Mountains, the country also has a vast landscape of plains that flourish along the Ganga, Yamuna, and Sindhu Rivers. To the south are the beaches of the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean. At Kanyakumari, the southern tip of the country, the waters from the two oceans combine and provide for a unique viewing experience. The country has two monsoon seasons. Most of the country, especially the north, experiences monsoon between June and September. Some parts of the country, like Tamil Nadu get hit by rains in October. Travelers should try and schedule their trips around these.
Accommodations and transportation will vary dependent on what cities you visit. Being in Darjeeling, Delhi, or Bangalore means you will be hard pressed to tell the difference between any Western country, while the outer regions are drastically different. Enjoy a safari in the Kanha National Park, explore the Taj Mahal in Agra, or visit the Ajanta caves. Take a boat ride down the Ganges River through Varnasi, and enjoy some of the world’s finest teas and cuisine, with spices that will leave your mouth watering for weeks to come. Go snorkeling in the Andaman Islands or climb the peaks of the Himalayas. A country of uniquely different experiences depending on which area you happen to be in, it is impossible to experience it all in just one trip.

Exchange rate fluctuations can have a considerable impact on your trip budget. If your home currency has appreciated in value in the recent term over the currency of your destination you are likely to find the place inexpensive.
Select your home currency from the drop down to compare it to the currency in use in India.
Currencies fluctuate all the time, to keep updated of rapidly devaluing currencies follow us on Twitter or Facebook , or if you have somewhere special in mind sign up for an account and plan a trip. We will then keep an eye on their currency rates, and send you an alert if their currency goes down in comparison to yours.
