Cultural Destinations in India
Cultural tourism in India is a phenomenal hit among travelers from all over the world since India has one of the most unique and diverse culture in the world. With the presence of so many states and cities, each with their own set of languages, customs, religion, beliefs, food, festivals, music, dance, architecture, and art, one will get to witness a myriad of traditions across the country.
One of the most important cultural activities in India includes exploring its art and architecture.
India has a 2000 years old architectural heritage that is exhibited in its many monuments, forts, temples, monasteries and Stupas spread across the country. From Ajanta & Ellora caves to temples of Khajuraho, from the monasteries in Sikkim to the ruins in Hampi, each monument in India is an architectural masterpiece and speaks volumes about the rich history and heritage of the country.
Other than architecture, culture of India is also exhibited in its age old temple paintings, carvings on walls and monuments, and even the crafty consumable or decorative items made by the natives of many states and remote localities. The depiction of different Gods and deities inside holy shrines is also a great indicator of the same.
The cultural tourism of India can also be seen in its many festivals and cuisines. Being multi-lingual and multi-religious, India plays host to a number of colourful fairs and festivals in a year. Some of prominent ones include the Lohri, Bihu, Pongal, Goa Carnival, Pushkar Fair in Rajasthan, Kite Flying Festival in Kutch, the Jaisalmer Desert Festival, Holi, Baisakhi, Rath Yatra, Independence Day, Eid Ul Fitr, and the Ziro Music Festival in Arunachal Pradesh. When talking about the cultural activities of India, eating can’t be left behind. India is, after all, known for some of the most delicious cuisines in the world. Each state will serve you something different, yet totally lip-smacking, on your platter. From Rajasthani, Gujarati, Kashmiri, Punjabi, Mughlai, to South Indian fare, every notable dish in India is prepared with a lot of herbs, spices and traditional recipes.
A visit to India is sure to take you on the most invigorating journey of your life, with such a rich blend of cultural experiences to explore at so many different places. Plan your trip soon!

Trip to Tamil NaduRooms were not clean. Coorg hotel was no where near the market. Cockroaches in the room. We have to wait for more than 3 hours to check in Mysore hotel. Mysore hotel's manager was too arrogant. Service was very slow. We have been told there will no Oyo rooms from the package. But have got Oyo rooms in coorg and mysore. Need to travel for more 4-5 kms to reach to coorg hotel's breakfast restaurant. There was only 1 option given for breakfast in Coorg. I have been told I will get so many options in the breakfast. Nothing I got. Mysore hotel didn't give us breakfast. I ate it outside and Lee vacations paid me for that. Ooty hotel was good but the service was damn slow. We literally have to wait for half an hour to get water bottle. Breakfast was very limited. Only idli and bread. Cab driver was good. He knows each and every thing about the place.
Trip to DelhiIt's awesome experience with Amazing India Tours. We have completed the tour with some wonderful memories. Our driver was so nice & gentleman. Ritesh was also so co-operative. Thanks Travel Triangle, Thanks Amazing India Tours.
Trip to Tamil NaduTravel Agent just looked at the budget i have provided, but he didn't cared whether the basic amenities are available or not at the hotels provided. When enquired the same with them, then the response really surprised me. He was stating how can I expect the basic amenities when my budget is just 30K for 4 days :( and intern told me that it was very challenging for him to accomodate. Overall trip went fine, but we faced issues at the hotel at Ooty.
Trip to SingaporeThough there were some hiccups , overall experience was very Good. My sincere appreciation to Mr. Prince from Deft organizers as he was helpful all the time. Cruise experience was excellent. Some of experiences noted here as below- Importantly, it was agreed to provide gifts for kids as part of package, which were not provided. However, it was agreed to deliver at my house through courier. 1. 1st day pickup was delayed from Singapore airport. 2. No pickup to Hotel was arranged at Malaysia. Self cab was arranged after a long wait. 3. Hidden service charge of Cruise not intimated proir which is around 168 SGD~9240 INR. 4. As per itenary fountain of wealth in singapore was not shown. Little India and China Town was just shown from vehicle. To cater other co passengers requirement, we were taken to other place like flyer which was not part of the package and additional cost. Madame Tussads was not shown. 5. Travel from Singapore to Malaysia was hectic in Coach with kids. Considering kids, atleast flight should have been booked. 6. Cruise experience was good. But preference should have been given for balcony rooms . Opinion should have taken prior to booking 7.Time in genting highlands was not sufficient, should have well planned.
Trip to Sri LankaNew Delhi (Delhi), India 227 The best ! Review of Pearly Gates Lanka Reviewed 2 days ago When I booked the tour through Pearly gates I was expecting good service, but ended up being totally overwhelmed by the experience I had with this company. I first contacted Nimni over phone and was happy at her prompt answers and friendly tone.I booked with her soley on the basis of what I could guage of her over conversations on phone.( Travel Triangle was the aggregator) She had promised me a good guide cum driver and a big van for the three of us (my husband, son and I ). Rikfy picked us up from my hotel first ( I was atteding an international conference) and then my family from the airport and the next seven days we spent in Paradise ! He was a careful driver, a wonderful guide and a true friend. Attentive at all times, smiling advising, he made our tour truly special. Behind all this was Nimni - calling us to find if everything was ok. They had booked good hotels, the travel by van was very comfortable but most important - the personal touch at every moment by Rikfy made everything special. On the last evening we ordered dinner at the restaurant in Hotel Ocean Colombo but when the food didnt come even after almost an hour we were very upset. We called Rikfy and though it was after 10.30 pm he came and took us to an Arabian restaurant. As some of us are diabetic this was a life saver !.I recommend Pearly gates to everybody if you want true service with a smile,and Nimni and Rikfy really make you feel at home in Sri Lanka !
Trip to BaliI went on a family trip to Bali and Neeta from World Travel Destination helped organize it. Honestly I was apprehensive if a Agent sitting in India can work out all my activities my family had planned. However working with Neeta was a breeze. She helped me get a good clean quote for all the activities we wanted to do. Whenever we had questions she helped answer. One feedback is that the vouchers came late to me, just a day before travel. So does not give time to review and give feedback.
Trip to TurkeyThe concept of 3-star/4-Star hotel is totally different from what is visualised in India. We were in for a shock when we saw the room size(8ft*8ft) in a 3/4 Star hotels The hotels have no facilities like coffee shops or a restaurants. The travel agents in India should make it clear to the prospective travellers so the people don't get shocked . It was a very well organized trip. Every place we visited the tourists guides were very pleasant and well informed. We really enjoyed the. Trip
Trip to Sri Lanka- Driver was not giving daily quota of water bottles regularly. One day even after reminding also, he did not give any water bottle. - Driver was supposed to take the guests to Gangaram temple in Colombo but they were not taken there, even after reminding. - river was mostly interested in taking the guests to those places where entry fee was exorbitantly high and was not worth visiting. - Driver did not give the SIM card on the first day after arrival. Upon reminding, he gave a SIM card which did not have any charge. People in India were not able to contact the guests as SIM card was not recharged and activated. Finally, I had to recharge the SIM card from India online and then only calls can be made. - Though breakfast was complimentary, guests were served different breakfast at Hotel Heaven Seven in Nuwara Eliya on 9th October. Hotel gave only idli and vada to the guests which is very unfortunate. So, overall, I would give 2.5 out of 5 in the rating.
Trip to Tamil NaduOverall stay was great. Enjoyed a lot. All three hotels were good. I would like to suggest one thing, as tourist doesn't know much about the place , you should guide then accordingly. As which places to visit, how many days required per city. Because there were so much travelling that almost one whole day of my respective city tour went in travelling. So tourist can cover less but atleast can enjoy current place. Else it was a memorable trip. Thank you. Journey was beautiful than the destination. I really enjoyed bful road trip to Ooty .
Trip to Tamil NaduThe overall arrangement by Lee Vacations was exceptional excepting the Hotel at Ooty. Initially Bhagravi effort to convince me to book a trip with Lee was unforgeatable. She left no stone unturned to ensure the booking. Than the driver Jitenderji tried his best to ensure the trip ends smoothly & becomes a memorable one for us. Ramya & Murrugun also tried their best ensure we get the best hospitality as pissible. I thank the whe Lee team for their sincere and honest effort to keep us happy, God bless them. The Rameswaram trip particularly to Dhanuskodi & Kalam Memorial was amazing
