It’s impossible to find a bad photo of Paris. Every corner of France’s capital city looks like artwork and it gets more magical as you start to explore its cobblestone streets.

If you’re a romantic, Paris will definitely indulge your every craving for romance—from scenic walks by the River Seine to candlelit dinners on the Eiffel Tower.

Paris is also known for its many cafes where Parisians usually spend time in the morning or wind down in the afternoon. You cannot miss ordering a croissant and coffee while reading a book or simply people watching.

If you need more than just a cup of coffee, Paris is also famous for being a city of food lovers. You’ll see boulangeries, patisseries, boucheries, and restaurants in almost every street corner of Paris.

If that’s not enough, Paris is also home to some of the best landmarks in the world. Aside from the iconic Eiffel Tower, you should also visit the Louvre, the Notre Dame Cathedral and even the Pere Lachaise, which is known as the world’s most beautiful cemetery.

To cap off your trip, you should indulge in a purchase at one of the many designers and vintage shops in the city.

There is good reason Switzerland is the playground of the rich and famous. From its snow-capped mountains to its world-class chocolates, this small country has big offers for first-time Indian travelers.

For starters, Switzerland has one of the most efficient transport systems in the world that you don’t even need to rent a car to get around it.

If you think that the castles of England are magical, wait until you see those in Switzerland. All the castles scattered around its three regions offer spectacular views that make them look like they’re straight out of a fairytale.

Switzerland is also home to some of the most beautiful waterfalls in Europe including the Rhine Falls, which is the largest plain waterfall in the continent.

Of course, Switzerland is a dream destination for first-time Indian travelers because of the beautiful Swiss Alps. These scenic mountains don’t only offer the perfect venue for some skiing, but they also have some of the most scenic views in the world.

The most popular spot in the Swiss Alps would have to be the Matterhorn, the most photographed mountain in the world.

The peak that you see on the logo of Toblerone overlooks the beautiful town of Zermatt where you’ll also see some of the best and most luxurious ski resorts in the country.
