Why India is Ideal for a Romantic Getaway

You’ll be spoilt for choice when picking a holiday destination for two — the world is full of romantic locations and hideaways. Why not make India one of them? The mix of interesting culture and stunning scenery is sure to satisfy all tastes, whether you’re a foodie, a history buff, or simply want a room with a view.



Romance is part of India’s history

Most people have heard of the Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, but few people know why it was first built.

In 1631, Mumtaz Mahal, wife of Shah Jahan, passed away. Shah Jahan was distraught and commissioned the building of an enormous, ivory-white marble shrine on the south bank of the Yamuna River — the Taj Mahal. The tribute to his lost love took 22 years to build and he was buried beside her after his death.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the architecture of the mausoleum is awe-inspiring, with precious and semi-precious stones set in the marble. The Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore described the Taj Mahal as ‘the teardrop on the cheek of time’ and it serves as a reminder of how enduring love can be.

You’ll be spoilt for choice

There’s no shortage of places to stay in India, from budget hostels to the full, 5-star works. Do some hunting online and you’ll be able to find lots of mid-range hotels that offer a comfortable stay in a beautifully furnished room. If you really want to treat yourselves, why not choose an opulent hotel suite or a luxury, air-conditioned tent?



You’ll experience something different

Taking a break from the norm and discovering a different culture will bring you closer together and create lifelong memories, so take advantage and try something new.

Whether it’s sampling traditional Indian cuisine from a restaurant or street food stall, taking your shoes off so you can explore a temple, or admire prehistoric artifacts in Delhi’s National Museum, it’ll be an eye-opening experience you can share with your loved one.

You won’t believe your eyes

India is home to a diverse range of stunning landscapes. You can see mountains, meadows, forests, jungles… this country has it all. To make the most of it, visit a national park and arrange for a jeep safari. Not only will you benefit from the knowledge of a local guide, but you’ll also be able to spot all the wildlife in their natural environment, including tigers, leopards, and bears. More adventurous types can book a hike along one of the mountain paths to see the views from above.



You can get away from the stress of everyday life

And breathe. A romantic getaway is the perfect opportunity to relax and there are lots of ways to do that in India, whether you venture to the countryside or spend some time on one of the west coast’s beautiful beaches.

If you’re looking for something more out of the ordinary, why not take a cruise along the River Kerala? You’ll set off in a thatched bamboo boat called a kettuvallom, complete with your very own captain, guide, and cook. Sit back and as you navigate the waterways and watch the world go by.
