This could be your next unforgettable destination
In India, your LGBTQ+ family holiday can be a real melting pot of calm and high-energy. You could wander around palaces pretending to be kings or queens (you can even stay in one if that’s the dream) – or head into the jungle on safari, seeing which of you can spot a rare Bengal tiger. Kanha National Park was actually the inspiration for The Jungle Book! There are buzzy cities steeped in culture and history (don’t miss the Taj Mahal, a Wonder of the World) and we highly recommend relaxing on one of Goa’s golden beaches.
Visit the City Palace in Jaipur and watch a puppet show, explore the sights and sounds of Delhi on a private tuk-tuk tour or browse the vibrant (and chaotic!) New Market in Kolkata. Although homosexuality was only made legal in India in 2018, it’s a friendly and welcoming place to visit. There are local customs that you’ll need to follow and public displays of affection are discouraged but, generally, we’d say it’s a safe (and incredible) place to visit as an LGBTQ+ family.
There’s so much to see in India that it’s no wonder it’s such a popular destination for longer trips. A popular option for couples and solo travellers is to start in Goa and travel all the way up to Delhi.
If you have any questions about this destination, then let me know. I can help you plan a holiday here and give you recommendations that you may not have thought of!
