Since the travel bug bit me only a few years back, I’ve wanted to travel more places in India and that got me thinking about places I should be visiting. It is easy to travel luxuriously and so I decided that I would travel cheap, budge-travel is not really difficult and only requires you to be able to work around cheap stay and travel. After visiting a part of Delhi, Manali and Dharamshala, Mysore happened and then it was Chennai, Kerala and most recently Pondicherry among specific tourist locations. Ever since I have been planning to see places in India and I’ll be able to see them hopefully soon, they are as follows

Leh Ladakh
Well, Leh and Ladakh seem to be on everybody’s bucket list recently. Facebook timelines flooded with snow-clad mountains and Enfield riders going to rough terrain is not new these days. I’ve wanted to visit Leh and Ladakh ever since I’ve seen pictures of the Pangong lake.

North-East India
It’s always hard to choose one particular place among the seven sisters, even though Nagaland stands out for everybody, the music festivals and flavourful food, is something I’ve wanted to taste and hope to go there soon.

Kolkata
What attracts me about Calcutta, as I like to call it? It has to be the yellow taxis and the quaint architecture which I’ve seen in pictures over the years. Reading books like The Lowland and Sea of Poppies have got me all the more interested and so it has been on my bucket list for some time now. Not to forget reading Goalless by Boria Mazumdar, which also refers to places like Tollygunge and obviously the famous rivalry between East Bengal and Mohun Bagan.

Rajasthan
I’ve been to Mount Abu and I know that isn’t even a justified visit of the state. Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur , Bikaner and Jaisalmer have their own share of architectural beauty that needs to be explored.

Andaman and Nicobar Islands
Interesting landscapes and the famous Grand Trunk Road and references to the Jarawa tribe make me want to explore the islands. An interesting book by Pankaj Sekhsaria called The Last Wave make me want to visit the islands almost immediately.

These are interestingly the top five places on my list of places to travel. What is on your travel bucket list? Please suggest places that I have missed that I must see in India 😀
