Overview

Be inspired by our new edition of Insight Guide India, which shows you how to get the most out of this thrilling country. Our inspirational Best of India section illustrates its unique attractions, from the bright lights of Mumbai to the brilliant colors of Rajasthan, the ruins of ancient cities and the cool heights of the Himalayas. The first part of the book provides an essential introduction to India’s ancient civilisations, colonial history, and multi-layered contemporary society. Our lively essays on art and architecture, food and drink, performing arts, wildlife, and Bollywood provide the perfect backdrop to any visit. The Places section takes you on a journey through each of India’s regions, from Delhi and the Himalayas in the north to Chennai and Kerala in the south, as well the coral-fringed Lakshadweep, Andaman, and Nicobar Islands. All destinations are complemented by attractive, detailed maps linked to the key sights by numbered dots, and full-color photographs throughout bring this stunning destination to life. Lavish Photo Features offer a unique insight into India’s festivals, Hindu deities, its creaking railways, the ancient sites of Ajanta, Ellora and Hampi, cruising Kerala’s backwaters, and – of course – the Taj Mahal. At the back of the book, the Travel Tips section provides all the practical information you'll need to plan a memorable trip, as well as selective listings giving our writer’s pick of the best places to stay and eat.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Well researched and impeccably written, the Rough Guides are a great choice for anyone seeking to be an informed, prepared traveler. Due to the fantastic essays, the Rough Guides are as much fun for armchair travelers as they are for those actually on the road. Each edition comes with detailed maps, in-depth essays on the history and culture of each destination, a wide range of lodging options, and recommendations for off-the-beaten-path places to visit. The special attention paid to the writing is a boon for travelers, most of whom find themselves reading the guide cover to cover instead of just looking up their specific itineraries.
