There aren’t many countries in the world that can leave an impression on its visitors like India does. Sporting opportunities, colourful markets and incredible landmarks come by the bucket load in India, meaning you’re never short for things to see and do.
They say you should expect the unexpected in India, but one thing’s certain – a sports tour destination doesn’t come better than this!
Here are our top 3 reasons why you should plan a sports tour to India for your team…
1. The Sport – It would be pretty silly of us to start our list with anything else, after all, we live and breathe sports! With cricket being India’s most-loved sport and hockey not far behind it, sports teams will thrive in this country’s top-class facilities with its sport-mad residents. You’ll face top-quality opposition in 4/5 competitive fixtures, as well as plenty of training opportunities.
2. The People – The local people of India, particularly those in rural areas, are some of the most welcoming and kindest people you’ll ever meet. There’s a saying in India, ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’, which means ‘Guest is God’, and it’s safe to say they take hospitality to a whole new level. It’s truly an experience that’s hard to find anywhere else in the world.
3. The Sights – We can’t talk about the sights of India without first talking about the Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Well, wonder no more! Built by the Emperor Shah Jahan as a memorial to his wife, this ‘teardrop on the face of eternity’ is widely considered as one of the most beautiful architectural wonders ever created. You’ve really got to see it to believe it.
But that’s not all! You can discover the contrasting districts of Old and New Delhi, the regal brilliance of Jaipur and the magical lure of Agra as you journey around the Golden Triangle. These three enchanting cities show the very best of India, from its breath-taking scenery and awe-inspiring temples, to its authentic cuisine and vibrant markets.
Still not enough? Travel north to the Punjab where you can experience the brilliance of Amritsar and the magnificent Golden Temple.
So there you have it, our top three reasons why you should make India the destination of choice for your next sports tour. Without a doubt, this country promises a sporting experience like no other! Our bags are packed, are yours?
