Exploring India— a wishlist and guide to some of the most exotic places of India

The world is slowly getting back to normal, and travel restrictions are finally easing out, getting everyone excited to explore and go on trips again. While international travel is allowed, there are enough exotic places within India itself to explore. Travel agencies offer luxury packages that include staying at fancy hotels, transfers, and even activities, that are customisable, making life easier.

Here's a list of places we'd love to visit this year:

Rajasthan

Rajasthan is a beautiful state with several cities to visit, each filled with some historical significance, intriguing enough to scour.
