Indian customs and traditions have been revered by most of the travelers who have visited the country and the vast range of geographical locations in India has made it one of the top tourist destinations. While traveling in India has often being stereotyped by the lack of civic facilities and is considered more of a backpacker destination, it can be done lavishly without burning a hole in your pocket.
