India – home of yoga, tea, cotton and pepper
When traveling to India, you must keep in mind that there are few customs that you should try for an authentic Indian travel experience.
Here are few tips that you should mark on your travel guide to India >
My recommendation is to attend a few sessions of yoga – the Indian yoga teachers will show you the secrets of this type of meditation, practiced by old Hindus since around 3000 B.C. Yoga is a method of purifying the mind, body and spirit and a great way to discover the Indian way of life.
A few well chosen yoga sessions will help you relax and give you a boost of energy while you can continue your trip through this amazing country.
Drinking tea is another Indian tradition. You should also know that “chai” is the Hindi word for tea and an invitation for a cup of chai to an Indian house should always be accepted and understood as a sincere proof of Indian hospitality. Usually, in India the tea is served together with various types of traditional snacks.
Though India is producing a lot of kinds of tea, black tea remains the most popular in this country.
Research shows that tea was cultivated in India for thousands of years, both for consumption and for medical purposes.
Visiting India is above all a mystical travel experience so you should experiment as much as you can with the indian traditions.
