Top 10 Travel Destinations in India Perfect for Spending Memorable Vacations

It is not a new thing if I start talking about India as a great tourist destination over here. Everyone in this whole wide world knows this. The rich cultural heritage, the wide range of diversity and the multi-lingual population of India, makes every tour to India completely different from the previous one.

There are so many interesting places to Visit and Tourist Destinations in India, that while being in India, one completely forgets that it is just one country. Every state is different from other; if there are rains, there are deserts; if there is dry heat, there is shivering cold; if there are mountains, there are backwaters.

And to top it all, when you think about a country with such varieties and ethnic diversities, it is hard to imagine a country with such extremes, existing as the largest democracy in the world. I think I took a bit of a digression from the topic over there. Getting back to the topic of discussion. Presenting the top 10 travel destinations in India which make for an ideal tourist destination at any point of time:
