Delhi International Airport is the second busiest airport in South Asia after Mumbai: more than 25 million passengers use it every year.

Hindi crash course – very useful to bargain in markets and bazaars.
Ek = one / do = two / teen = three / charr = four/ paanch = five

AMRITSAR

Must Do in Amritsar: dinner or lunch at the Golden Temple. You will find yourself sitting cross-legged on the floor with all the pilgrims. On the menu: lentils (dal), rice and chapati (Indian bread). If you wish, you can also help in doing the dishes, no dishwasher !

JAMMU – SRINAGAR

Did you know that the Kashmir Jammu region where the city is located is divided into three since 1947: an Indian, a Pakistani and Chinese side.

SRINAGAR
Kerala is not the only place where you can embark on a houseboat . Srinagar city is also famous for its floating boats on the Dal Lake , in the heart of an impressive mountain chain.
