Expat Heather’s Guide to India Travel

During our time teaching in Pakistan, my husband and I lived fairly close to the Wagha-Attari border with India, and we were able to to travel there during our school breaks. Listed below are links to informative articles I’ve written about travel in India.

Articles are hosted on various sites such as USA Today’s Travel Tips, Trails.com, Hotels.com, and Golflink. This collection is far from a comprehensive travel guide, but if you’re looking for specific information about travel, destinations or hotels in India these are some articles to get you started.

Guide Books

If you’re looking for a guidebook to bring along with you to India, here are some options. The Lonely Planet India is a large volume, so you may want to consider downloading the PDF version or going for smaller, regional guidebooks that have more detailed and specific information. We tended to only use our Lonely Planet India at home during the trip planning phase and carry the regional guides along with us.
