The Middle East is an extension of the continuous landmass that once used to be Eurasia. However with Europe being separated from Asia by the Black Sea, current geographical nomenclature denotes Asia from the Himalayan Mountains to the deserts of the Middle East. Asia is an interesting landscape with many unique features, peoples, traditions and cultures. It ranges from Tibet in the extreme East nestled by the Himalayan Mountains to the vast, extensive deserts of Arabia which is home to the oilfields of the world. Asia is home to many great countries such as India, China, UAE and the South East Asian island countries such as Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia, currently home to the tallest man made structure in the world, The Petronas Twin Towers.


India, or Bharat, is fondly called the Land of Diversity for a reason – the country is home to several races, languages, cultures, and religions entwined together into an epitome of unmatched unity. Indians believe in the philosophy of Atithi Devo Bhava (Guest is equivalent to God), which stems from their long legacy of hospitality, warmth, and open-hearted welcome. 


India is a land of deep-rooted beliefs that relate to the country’s rich history, spanning more than 2,50,000 years. For an avid traveler seeking rich experiences to fill their bucket with, India’s plethora of beautiful artistic, literary and oral traditions offer excellent memories of a lifetime.
