It's common knowledge that India is a huge tourist destination so what do you do if you want to get off the beaten path and check out some underexplored parts of the country? Get on the train, of course. Hop on board and go from the deep south of Kochi up the east coast towards bustling Kolkata, disembarking to explore temples and palaces along the way. You'll have the chance to explore smaller cities and villages on the coast, getting a perspective on this country that few have the opportunity to experience. Once you've lived like a local hopping off and back on the train for your next adventure, you'll be seeing India in a brand new light.
