Among them, we were delighted to read, was a warm recommendation for the many benefits of India homestays.

Homestays are amazing – seek them out whenever possible. This is often the only place where you can get real homecooked Indian food made by a woman (women in the North do not work outside the home except in Delhi and Punjab) The food, the atmosphere, engaging people in conversation, participating in daily life – this is what traveling is all about. Forgo fancy hotels – I recommend as many homestays as you can do.

We’re very pleased that a traveller who has spent a serious amount of time observing the wonders of India recognises the joy of homestays.

Take a look at Violet’s 39 other insights.

If you are a first time India visitor you will find them helpful; if you are Indian you will no doubt find the outsiders’ perspective fascinating.
