What is it that makes the traveller in you come alive?
For some it’s meeting new people, for some it’s exploring new landscapes, while for others, it’s all about great food. In fact, for most people, relishing local cuisine is integral to the travel experience. But a typical hotel stay can only offer limited choices when it comes to exploring the local cuisine.
Did you know? Travelling in India has come of age and many are now exploring the fresh delicacies offered by scenic villages by booking a home in the countryside. Many rural home stays offer the rich experience of organic food being prepared right in front of your eyes. You will get to savoir fresh, residue-free, healthy ingredients from nature, soulfully prepared in organic spices and herbs. Even a weekend getaway can rejuvenate your health and well-being, and lift your spirits.
Many travelers now agree that when it comes to pairing great food with the marvels of nature, rural home stays are the way to go. Here’s why village stays in India are the ultimate food destinations for every traveler:
