椰林国 Coconut forest country

Kerala, India

Kerala, the southernmost state of India, is the spice hotspot of the world since ancient times. This beautiful land is rightly called God's Own Country, given to its lush green landscapes and crystal-clear beaches that will leave you awestruck. With all elements of nature in it, Kerala leads the country in various aspects like literacy rate, sex ratio, least population growth, and travel and tourism.

The name Kerala is derived from Kera, the local Malayalam word for coconut, and there is an abundance of palm trees across the state. The spiky dark green fronds act as natural parasols against the glare of the sun. The coconut doesn’t just lend its name to the place but also acts as a ubiquitous and adaptable natural resource from which countless products, such as coir, a versatile fiber, and toddy, a famous – and potent – local brew, are derived.

印度的里维埃拉 The Riviera of India

Arambol Beach, Goa, India

Known for its immense, densely populated cities, India also has a seemingly endless coastline. And no part of it is more languid and lovely than Arambol, in the small and special state of Goa on the southwestern coast. Arambol is a popular holiday town with the vibe of a sleepy fishing village—which it was once was. Now visitors from around the world drawn to its tropical climate, rainforest valleys, historic architecture, sandy beaches, blue waters, and swaying coconut palms bring a new energy to Arambol.

Goa is distinct from much of India as it was colonized by Portugal while Great Britain ruled the rest. The Portuguese Empire conquered Goa in the early 1500s and ruled it until 1961, when it was annexed by India. The influence of the Portuguese can be seen in Goa's Catholic churches and convents, as well as in the name of the state's largest city: Vasco da Gama, after the explorer who once governed Goa.

If history isn't your thing, Arambol is famous for a drum circle and flea market held on the beach a few hours before sunset. It's just as much a beach party as a market. Craftspeople sell handmade wares while musicians join impromptu performances. There's no better way to end your day in Goa, land of sand and spice and sun.



果阿不同于印度的大部分地区,因为它曾被葡萄牙殖民,而英国统治其余地区。15世纪初,葡萄牙帝国征服了果阿,并统治了它,直到1961年被印度吞并。葡萄牙人的影响可以在果阿的天主教教堂修道院中看到,也可以在该国最大城市瓦斯科·达伽马(Vasco da Gama)的名字中看到,瓦斯科·达·伽马是曾经统治果阿的探险家。

古代中世纪城堡 Medieval castle

Chittorgarh Fort Rajasthan India

At 8 miles in circumference, the Chittorgarh Fort is one of the largest forts in India, a nation with scores of ancient and medieval fortresses. For starters there are seven massive gates from which to enter. Inside you'll find four palaces and 19 temples. At one time there were almost 100 bodies of water, most of them ponds fed by natural catchment and rainfall, although now there are only 20. Chittorgarh ('garh' means 'fort,' so it's also known as Chittor Fort) is so old, no one is sure exactly when it was built, although reports of its earliest capture go back to the 8th century. It is one of a cluster of six large forts in the northwestern state of Rajasthan referred to as the Hill Forts of Rajasthan, all of them collectively designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We're featuring this important and ancient complex on India's 75th Independence Day, one of India's three national holidays.

On August 15, 1947, India officially broke free of Great Britain and became a sovereign and democratic nation with the speedy passage of the Indian Independence Act. The paperwork might have been fast, but the struggle for independence from British rule lasted 90 years and cost many Indian lives. The British controlled the Indian subcontinent for nearly 200 years, after winning the decisive Battle of Plassey in 1757. The victory allowed the English East India Company to eventually exercise control over most of the rest of the Indian subcontinent, Burma, and Afghanistan. East India remained the supreme authority in India for a century until 1857 when a massive rebellion by civilians and Indian soldiers against the company was suppressed, resulting in direct British rule, referred to as the British raj.

The ensuing decades saw the formation of the Indian National Congress, the rise of Indian nationalism, various armed rebellions, and many acts of civil disobedience led by Mahatma Gandhi and others, before independence was finally achieved. While India as we know it is still a very young nation, the Chittor Fort reminds us the land and people that created modern India have endured and thrived for millennia.

工程奇迹 An engineering marvel

Sharavati Bridge

This bridge at Honnavar was awarded second prize in the competition for Most outstanding Bridge National Awards 1995 – Category I by Indian Institute of Bridge Engineers.

Here, we are looking at the Sharavati Bridge, the longest railway bridge in the Indian state of Karnataka. It is 2,060 metres long and it carries the Konkan Railway over the Sharavati river. Constructed in 1984, the bridge is recognised around the globe as an engineering wonder. During the 20th century, the project to construct this bridge was considered to be the biggest and perhaps the most complicated railway undertaking (at least in this part of the world). The Konkan Railway has over 2,000 bridges and 91 tunnels constructed through some of the toughest terrains.

Tea plantations in the mountains of Munnar in Kerala, India

The hill station of Munnar is synonymous with rolling hills that are carpeted with verdant plantations of tea – a delicious beverage loved worldwide. The town became a hotspot for tea plantations after John Daniel Munro, a colonial office of the British raj, first visited the place in the late 1870s. He discovered that much of Munnar’s land was suitable for growing tea and coffee. Today, the hill station is recognised for some of the best and most beautiful tea gardens across the globe.

Tea in Munnar is grown on its undulating terrain, which appears as they are covered with a bright green blanket. The entire place has amazing scenery and offers a panoramic view of the majestic Western Ghats. No doubt one of the best places to immerse yourself in your favourite novel and enjoy a warm cup of tea!


芒纳山站是起伏山丘的代名词,起伏山丘上覆盖着翠绿的茶园——一种全世界都喜爱的美味饮料。19世纪70年代末,英国国王的殖民办公室约翰·丹尼尔·蒙罗(John Daniel Munro)首次访问该镇后,该镇成为茶园的热点。他发现芒纳的大部分土地适合种植茶叶和咖啡。今天,希尔车站被公认为是全球最好、最美丽的茶园之一。

Corjuem Fort in Goa, India

Corjuem Fort, built in 1705 by Portuguese colonists, was abandoned in 1894 but never demolished. It is now a protected historical site in Goa, India, and during the right time of year, Corjuem can look like it's being eaten by the forest.

While Britain is heavily associated with colonial control of India, Portugal had its own foothold in what is now the state of Goa, on the southwestern coast of India. The colony of Portuguese India held for more than 400 years before the Portuguese relinquished the territory in 1961. Sites such as Corjuem Fort show how much the colonial influence affected not just the culture, but the landscape itself.

India Republic Day

You might never guess that this ornate, skylit building, with an exterior covered in intricate carvings and artwork, was once a military base. Perched high on a hill above the city of Jodhpur, the colossal Mehrangarh Fort—aka the Citadel of the Sun—was built nearly five centuries before its home country became a democratic republic. Know which nation we're paying a birthday visit?

India's Republic Day commemorates January 26, 1950, when the constitution of India was adopted and the newly independent nation became a democratic republic. At the time of independence, the Republic of India had a population of 370 million, making the new nation the world's most populous democracy. It remains so today, with a population nearing 1.4 billion.

India Nohsngithiang Falls

Nohsngithiang Falls is a picturesque waterfall located south of Mawsmai village in East Khasi Hills district in Meghalaya, India. The waterfalls from a height of 315 metres (1,033 ft), segmented into seven different sections, giving it the epithet of the Seven Sisters Waterfalls. As the name suggests, it has seven different waterfalls that are strategically arranged side by side on a high, rugged cliff, and they look compelling even from a distance. The scintillating waterfall is seasonal and plunges over the limestone-covered hills only during the monsoon.

Nohsngithiang Falls is symbolic of the seven sister states of Northeast India namely Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Nagaland, Tripura, Mizoram, and Meghalaya. The waterfall cannot be entered into but creates a spectacular viewpoint that can be seen from nearby bridges and sheds. The beauty of the waterfall is indescribable during sunset when the rays of the sun fall on it creating a perennial rainbow, which is also one of the major highlights of the place.


Nohsngitiang瀑布是一个风景如画的瀑布,位于印度Meghalaya东Khasi Hills区Mawsmai村南部。瀑布的高度为315米(1033英尺),分为七个不同的部分,被称为七姐妹瀑布。顾名思义,它有七个不同的瀑布,从战略上讲,它们并排排列在一个高而崎岖的悬崖上,即使从远处看,它们也是引人注目的。闪烁的瀑布是季节性的,只有在季风季节才会在石灰岩覆盖的山丘上俯冲。

Nohsngithiang Falls象征着印度东北部的七姐妹州,即阿萨姆、阿鲁纳恰尔邦、曼尼普尔、Nagaland、特里普拉、米佐拉姆邦和梅加拉亚邦。瀑布无法进入,但创造了一个壮观的观点,可以从附近的梁和棚屋看到。日落时,阳照射在瀑布上,形成了一道经久不衰的彩虹,这也是这个地方的主要亮点之一,瀑布的美丽是无法形容的。
