It’s contentious to assemble a list of ten destinations from the hundreds that India has to offer. While making this list we did consider the fact that tourism in India had suffered a setback in the first two quarters of 2013, close on the heels of the gang rape of a medical student in Delhi in December 2012, and a June 2006 incident involving the rape of an American tourist in Manali. Many countries issued travel advisories and cautioned women against travelling to India. Though tourism numbers appeared to be unaffected, the rate of growth of tourism revenues showed a year-on-year dip when compared over the past five years. That much said, certain destinations in India continued to hold over others and remained attractive to visitors, both domestic and foreign. Here is our pick of the top 10 Indian destinations in 2013. Have a great holiday. And, yes, feel free to argue.
