Best Places to Visit in India After the Pandemic
The coronavirus pandemic has changed everyone’s life, and there is no denying that. People are getting used to the ‘New Normal’, wearing a mask even when you are just going to your grocery or stationary shop. Even though the lockdown acted as a break from work, it caused a bit of boredom staying at home for months and not exploring the outside world. The open roads, the limitless sky, the trees’ calm and sitting on the grass on open land, the sense of freedom that we had in all these months. The feeling of being alive, enjoying freedom with mother nature, was missed by all.
Here are some safe places via road and extremely breathable places to visit India after the lockdown to give treats and my time to yourself to overcome that lockdown phase.
The Golden Triangle:
The Golden Triangle consists of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. These destinations are only a short distance apart but contain the most wonderful and beautiful sights and monuments.
There is Qutub Minar, India Gate, Jamali Kamali, and many more places to visit, showing India’s historical past. Agra is the home to the mark of love, the monument Taj Mahal. Jaipur the Pink City, welcoming the tourists with its open arms, the colorful markets, the temples, and the museums tells us about the past.
Even though this road trip might be a bit of a hassle, it’s up to you to convert this hassled trip into an enjoyable and memorable trip through proper planning.
Varanasi is the place to visit to know, feel, and understand India’s culture. It is one of the holiest and oldest cities inhabited in the world; the sight over here is unique and unforgettable for tourists. The nightly Ganga Aarti and the boat ride along the holy river Ganga watching the sunrise or the sunset is a sight to see. The reflection of the sun on the water feels like a magical glow to the eyes. The rituals along the riverbank, of life and death, the feeling can’t be described in words.
