Experience Your Best India Vacation

While you can always visit the historic sites and cultural attractions that India made famous, smart travelers look for sites off the beaten path. These attractions let you avoid the crowds and focus on having a good trip.

The Neru Center Auditorium is a good choice for travelers because the center has four separate areas. Whether you're interested in arts, sciences, music, or drama, you can have fun without worrying about crowds. Walking through the neighborhood of Alsisar for a few hours and enjoying the local people, restaurants, and stores will also keep you away from the traditional crowds. Orbitz.com provides a number of discounts and cheap prices on tours and other things you might want to do on your vacation.

Best time to take a trip to India

Visiting in the winter is your best bet when it comes to India. The monsoon season starts in June and runs through September, and the season brings days of rain and wind. Summer is also uncomfortably hot with temperatures of more than 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The post-monsoon season starts in November, but the rain tapers off by December. Winter temperatures hover around the 50 to 60 degree mark, which is mild and slightly warm. You don't need to book your trip to India during the monsoon season to save money because Orbitz.com offers low prices on rental cars, hotels, and other travel arrangements year-round.
