🤭 I Answered Some of Your Questions - 2

Do you have any questions for me?

Hey explorer,

Today's tourism industry is just opposite to what we have seen growing up - many changes in travel policies, renovations to well-known sites and architectural marvels, and practically speaking, more people are travelling than ever.

Many questions pop up in the heads when a person wants to travel to a new place, and some of them find their way to Q&A platforms. While some get answered, some remain untouched. Here are a few questions I thought worth sharing (Continuation to part 1).

Hey Hey!

How about we learn something each time we discover a new place or break down the history of a place you might have heard once at least?

Kudos if you answered "Wular Lake" to the last question. Let's see if you can get this also right.

Q1. What are the upcoming 10 travel destinations in India?

India is definitely not what it seems to the outside world. The hidden sides of the country are so diverse that every part of it makes you say, "Oh! I must have been living under the rock this whole time."

As time passed, so did people across the world exploring India. Soon, the travellers understood it was not about the place but how much they could meet their travel goals.

So, travellers turned their interests to exploring untouched and less crowded sites. Some such Indian places soon to become more popular are:

  • Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh: Although it isn't new, chances are that many will visit this site after having heard about the Ram Mandir grand opening ceremony.

  • Spiti Valley, Himachal Pradesh: Most north Indian places are known for their beautiful environment, and the atmosphere of Spiti Valley is so good that it will soon attract more people.

  • Laitlum Canyon, Meghalaya: As the name says, Laitlum Valley looks similar to the Grand Canyon with deep valleys and feel-good vibes, except that one appears in red while the Indian version is in green.

  • Lakshadweep Islands: Although not a part of the Indian mainland, after the controversy between the PM of India and the Maldives government, most Indians shifted to the Indian islands, Lakshadweep, which wasn't the case before.

These destinations offer a mix of cultural, natural beauty, adventure, and peace vibes. However, you must check current travel needs, local guidelines, and any travel restrictions before planning a trip. Also, new destinations may emerge based on growing travel trends and developments.

Q2. What is the best Indian place?

There is no such place as the best Indian place to visit. Of course, the internet refers to the Taj Mahal, Red Fort, and Mumbai. But answering "What is the best Indian place to visit?" deals more personally (what you want to feel and explore) rather than someone recommending.

The fact that India is so vast contributes to your overall travel taste. From mystery places like Lepakshi in Andhra Pradesh to historical sites like Ajanta Caves in Maharastra and cities like Mumbai to villages like Khezakenoma village in Nagaland, all four corners of the country have something for you.

Q3. Where can I find the best beaches in India?

"Goa is the best place to enjoy beaches" is the answer most Indians say, and there is nothing wrong with that. Goa is indeed your place if enjoying beaches is on your bucket list. But other beaches promise to give you more PEACE and PRIVACY.

You see, Goa is well known for its beaches, and people flock in groups here. Most Goa beaches see the light with crowds, noise, and pollution, and you often struggle to have a private conversation with your beach partner.

Do you wish to have a not-so-peaceful beach experience? Come out and explore these hidden beaches to make the most out of your beach adventures.

  • Gujarat - Mandvi Beach and Gopnath Beach

  • Maharastra - Shrivardhan Beach and Kelshi Beach

  • Karnataka - Gokarna Beach and Maravanthe Beach

  • Kerala - Kizhunna Beach and Muzhappilangad Drive-in Beach

  • Tamil Nadu - Dhanushkodi Beach and Manapad Beach

Q4. Which are Shillong's top tourist destinations?

Being the capital of one of the most beautiful states of India, Meghalaya, and sits in the most attractive parts of the country, Shillong and around the city are full of tourist activities and sites that can keep you busy the whole day.

While there are tens of places to visit nearby, Laitlum Canyon, 24 km to the capital, is one of the best sites to take your Meghalaya adventure vibes to the peaks. It's an off-beat destination with unique experiences. 

Since I believe off-beat destinations are less crowded and can satisfy trips, below are a few more less-explored places near Shillong, including some well-known tourist sites.

  • Mawlynnong: It is known as the cleanest village in Asia, offering a unique experience of village life.

  • Dawki: It is famous for the clear waters of the Umngot River, best for boating and other water activities.

  • David Scott Trail: It is a trekking trail that takes you through the scenic geographies of Meghalaya.

  • Krang Suri Falls: It is a hidden gem with blue waters and lush green surroundings.

Top Tourist Destinations

  • Shillong Peak: A trek here offers panoramic views of the city and surrounding hills.

  • Ward's Lake: It is a calm lake with a charming garden, popular for boating.

  • Police Bazaar: While not a tourist spot exactly, it is the central market area for shopping, dining, and local experiences.

  • Mawphlang Sacred Forest: It is a sacred forest with ancient trees and a sacred grove.

Wrapping Up

There are thousands of questions unanswered on each Q&A platform. Whatever the might be, it revolved around showing India as a tourist place in an appealing way so that the viewer will get interested in exploring India, particularly the place related to the posed question. One thing we all must remember is that India is vast. The vaster the place gets, the more things you have to keep yourself busy with and enjoy.
