If I gift you an all expense paid trip and ask you to choose between India and an international destination, chances are you would pick the latter. That's what most Indians would do and I don't blame you for it.

But if you think you've exhausted all of that too, I have come up with a list of unique staying experiences in India that would make you bid adieu to your fancy international plans!
