From the grandeur of the Taj Mahal to the bustling city streets of Delhi, India and its four unique regions is a magical destination for every type of traveler. Travelers planning a trip to India have many options to choose from. The Himalayas offer panoramic vistas and adventure, while the capital city of Delhi provides visitors with a glimpse at ancient Moghul monuments in the midst of modern mega-malls. True romantics won't want to miss the Taj Mahal in Agra, which was completed in 1648 by Shah Jahan as a memorial for his beloved wife. The places to visit in India are endless, and visitors may want to return over and over again until they have seen them all.

Flights to India land at twelve international airports throughout the large country, including Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi, Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai, and Bangalore International Airport.
