India on a Budget

Flights to India can be expensive. Nevertheless, India is by and large a budget-friendly destination for Western travelers. Accommodations and transportation are quite affordable, and travelers can find locally made crafts for reasonable prices at scores of small villages across the country. Expect to pay more for lodging and meals in larger cities like Mumbai, and avoid traveling when local holidays and festivals are taking place in order to snap up the best hotel rates.

Best Time to Go to India

Since India is such a large country, the best time to visit really depends on where you're heading. In most regions, especially the south, winter is the most popular season for tourism. During winter, from about late October through February, the weather is comfortable and dry in many parts of the country. In warmer months, temperatures can be hot and the weather can get rainy in the south. However, the summer is an ideal time to head north and explore the Himalayas.
