Travel to India – Helpful Tips
India is a country of startling contrasts. You will find climates that are the complete opposites – a cool, temperate climate in the north, contrasting with the humid, tropical climate of the south. You will feel this sense of contrast even in the cuisine, with every part of India having its own signature dish – all spicy, sometimes pungent, but always flavoursome.
To fully experience this contrast, include both, a Rajasthan tourism package and Kerala tour packages in your travel to India.
Rajasthan And Kerala – A Study In Contrasts
Rajasthan is a desert state – its beauty derives from its sand dunes, its colourful people and the historic legends that live on in the cool of the desert nights. Kerala, on the other hand, is a state bustling with greenery – endless stretches of paddy fields extending as far as the eye can see– that’s Kerala for you. Ensure that your Rajasthan tourism package includes a ride on camel back into the desert.
The people of Rajasthan – the Rajasthanis as they are called – are a desert people. They sport colourful clothes and head-dresses that are a riot of colour, as if in defiance and as a counter-point to the harsh starkness of the landscape. The Keralites – as the people from Kerala are called – are more conservative in their choice of colours, preferring muted shades and even white.
Enjoy The Cultural Variety Offered by Rajasthan and Kerala
The dances of Rajasthan include the Kalbelia, with its sensuous, snake-like movements, swaying bodies and flashing skirts, and the famous Bhavai dance. This latter calls for balancing several pots of water on the head of the dancer, while doing her routine.
The dances Kerala are famed for are the Kathakali performance (literally “story play”) involving elaborate costumes and make-up, which needs special skills and expertise just to dress up, and the Mohiniattam, performed by women in traditional Kerala costumes.
The cuisines of the two states are also entirely different. For example, in Rajasthan, Dal Bhati is famous. This includes a lentil dish served with a bread-like accompaniment cooked over hot stones; in Kerala it is the Saddhya, a full meal usually served at weddings and major festivalslike Onam, with its selection of over twenty dishes, each one that tickles the pallet.Check to see whether your Kerala tour packages will give you an opportunity to taste the many dishes Kerala has to offer.
Because of the inherent contrast available in the culture of the two states, travel to India will never be boring.
