India through Israeli eyes

With its cultural treasures, breathtaking scenery and optimistic outlook, India never fails to captivate young Israeli travelers who continue to flock in droves to this favorite destination of choice. This is India through their collective lens

Anything is possible in India, as any first-time traveler to the dizzyingly diverse country will quickly learn. India is the land of endless possibilities, exposing visitors to sights and sounds that cannot be experienced anywhere else.


Tens of thousands of Israelis discover and fall in love with it every year, and they keep going back for more.


One cannot remain unchanged by India. Some call it love at first sight. Others say it is a taste that takes some time to acquire, but their feelings towards the country are stronger for it. Here we take you on a journey to the sub-continent and its one billion residents, through the lens of Israeli travelers.
