OFFICIAL TOURISM SITES

A compilation of the official sites of the Indian Tourism  is listed here. 
www.tourismofindia.com (The official site by the Ministry of Tourism, India) is presented in English, Spanish, Dutch and French. It is a wealth of information on India tourism. It is the best place to know India tourism in a nutshell. Different kind of tour ideas and typical circuits are listed based on your interest (beach, heritage, wildlife etc). A good place for self-learning. Also it lists a number of tour operators in your countries.
The following are the official (government run) sites of different state tourism departments and related organizations. Each state has its own policy on tourism and practically competes with the each others to lure people into it. 
Going through each site itself is a sort of virtual tourism. You can feel the difference in the offering at the sites itself. And you’ll be more confused than convinced about what is right place for you. In simple terms you’ll understand why you need a long vacation in India.
