I have been writing too much on how to make your trip cheap and affordable to make your honeymoon and vacation worthwhile. This post is dedicated to those Indians who want their trip even more cheaper and don’t want to step out of India.
Beautiful Places in India that look Similar to Europe
Here goes some Indian spots that looks similar to famous European destinations.
Switzerland and Khazziar
Everyone in India is die hard fan of the Yashraj Benner’s mega hit movie “Dilwale Dulhaniya le Jayenge”. Ever heard of Khazziar? It is among the 160 locations in the world that bear topographical resemblance with Switzerland.
It is located into the Chamba district of Himachal Pradesh.
It is situated into the Dholadhar mountain range that is famous for its Dense deodars, pines forest and lush green meadows just like in Switzerland.
Somewhere in 1992, a Swiss official named as Mr. Willy came to India. He got very impressed after watching scenic views similar to his country. He even put a sign board that showed the distance between the Swiss capital Bern.
France and Puducherry
People have suddenly started taking interest in Puducherry after watching Hollywood mega hit –“Life of Pie”. A story of a young man who was born in Puducherry, India who survives a series of disaster at sea is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery.
You will find language, climate, beaches, architecture everything same as France into Puducherry except Eiffel Tower.
Venice and Alappuzha, Kerela
Alappuzha is that is similar like Venice is the sixth largest city in Kerala.
Alappuzha is also known as Aleppy that means the land between the sea and network of rivers flowing into it.
This city is famous for its picturesque canals, backwaters, beaches, and lagoons just like Venice of Italy. It is one of the places that is known as “Venice of the East” by Lord Curzon (If you know who the hell lord Curzon was).
Venice and Udaipur
Udaipur’s city palace has some similarities with Venice.
It is also one of the places that is known as the Venice of the east. It is also called the city of lakes. The Lake Palace on Jag Niwas Island in the middle of Pichola Lakes is the finest example of its architectural and cultural explosion. The grand City Palace on the banks of the lake compliments the palace along with the Monsoon Palace (Sajjan Garh) on the hill above.
Venice and Srinagar
Srinagar is one of the three places that have been called the “Venice of the East” or the “Venice of Kashmir because it has Lakes around the city including Dal Lake” – noted for its houseboats – and Nigeen Lake.
Apart from Dal lake and Nigeen lake city is also famous for wular lake and manasbal lake to the north of Srinagar. Wular lake is one of the largest fresh water lakes in Asia.
Trakai Castle and JalMahal, Jaipur
The Trakai castle has been built on water and is surrounded by 5 lakes.
It is one of the most famous spot in Lithuania. Another most amazing fact is that it is the only castle located in the Eastern European island.
Its fascinating wooden architecture, castle and outstanding scenery encircled by several lakes is what make it so enticing a spot to visit.
Similarly, Trakai Castle in Eastern Europe, the Jal Mahal in Jaipur has also been built on water. It is possibly the most peaceful sight of a low rise symmetrical palace floating in the centre of Sagar Lake.
The palace has a further four submerged storey under the water and holds strong as a technological and design marvel in the history of architecture.
