This is a country the size of a continent, with more languages than you can shake a turmeric-topped dal at, more natural wonders than you could possibly get through in a single trip, and cities so vast it's almost impossible to see where they end. Welcome to India, where adventures can take you to the snow-capped Himalaya or the palm-fringed beaches of Goa; the marble-clad Taj or the mystical Hindu cave temples of Karnataka; the curry-sizzling chowks of Mumbai or the UNESCO wonders of Delhi. Cheap flights to India from Australia can be both direct or with stopovers, with oodles of airlines running routes from cities like Melbourne and Sydney to destinations across the subcontinent.
The Taj Mahal is a soul-stirring monument to the mighty Mughal empire and one of the most iconic buildings on the planet to boot.
Goa's got beaches and laid-back beach shacks aplenty. Head here to relax after hitting India's frenetic metropolises.
