Discover India’s Exotic Destinations

India is a diverse, magical and exotic country that has so much to offer and we all have so much to see and feel. I love travelling through this country that I call my home. I doubt if this journey will ever end. During this journey of India, I have personally been to so many unique places and I thought it would be appropriate if I shared this information with you through this article.

Below is a list of exotic places that I have personally visited in India. Each label links to my travel blog posts about that place.
