Traveling to India after the pandemic? Here are some books to help you on the way!
We have made a selection of books that cover both traveling through the rich and diverse country as well as history books.
Traveling within or to India in 2021? Or are you planning a vacation to India after COVID? The best way to start planning your trip is by reading up on your destination. This Fodor full-color travel guide gives an extensive overview of everything that India has to offer. It gives you an overview of the best sites to see and which cities to visit and which cities to skip. The book also comes with short and longer itineraries that help you make the most of your trip to India.
We are a big fan of Lonely Planet! We use Lonely Planet Travel Guides for basically every destination that we visit. This Lonely Planet India can help you get around the large country. The book comes with full colour maps, highlights, itineraries and what we like the most about the entire Lonely Planet series: reviews for eating, drinking, hidden gems and going out. All Lonely Planet books are easy-to-use and fit in any bag. These books are small enough to handle with ease but big enough to contain all the essential tips and tricks for your perfect journey through India.
Are you only going to visit India’s famous Golden Triangle? Than this Lonely Planet is probably more fit for purpose than the entire country book. The Loneley Planet, Rajasthan, Delhi & Agra covers all parts of the most traveled part of India including the Taj Mahal and Jaipur.
India has a rich and long history and is changing at an extremely rapid pace. This book covers the modern history of India, the world’s biggest democracy. The book goes back 60 years and describes the most important things that happened in the last 60 years. The book is well researched and written in a way that you can easily absorb all the knowledge and information about India it has to offer.
In case you want to learn more about the long history before Gandhi, you need a book that covers more than just the last 60 years. This book by John Keay tells the 5,000+ years of Indian history. The book, that has been recently updated, is a ‘compelling epic portrait of one of the world’s oldest and most richly diverse civilizations’.
