10 reasons India is a paradise for budget travelers
My travel to India got a lot of people curious: How did I manage to stay in India for a long period. And, one had even asked me on Facebook: “Why India?”
Well, India appears daunting at first, especially for solo female travelers. The news about the medical student gang-raped on a bus in New Delhi has never left our memories. It shocked the world once upon a time and every time we hear a woman raped in India, we distance ourselves from this country.
I carried a let-us-see attitude and an open mind when I came to this country so I can see how incredible India is, its beauty, warts and all.
I left India after 79 days and I am now in another country. But India would always be the top country I’d recommend to those who want a dose of adventures and new experiences.
Here is my own list of reasons why it is indeed heaven for budget travelers and adventurers out there.
