NEW DELHI: International tours make for great memories, but they also come with a heavy expense. 

Travelers, who are looking for affordable holidays can take a look at’s list of the most fine-looking places to visit within our very own country, that will give you an international vacation experience without burning a hole in your pocket 

1. Shillong- The Scotland of the East 

With its surging meadows, rivers and lush widespread grasslands, Shillong and its surroundings can be compared to none other than Scotland. 

2. Malana- India’s Little Greece 

Many locals believe that they are the descendants of Greek soldiers of Alexander's army. The only similarity Milanese people share with Greeks is that they both have a lower-house and upper-house system. Nevertheless, the terrain can surely be compared to a mini Greece in India. 

3.  Pondicherry- The French Town 

Pondicherry retains its Dutch and French architecture from the colonial days. It is interesting to note the smooth transition of Tamilian houses to French villas. 

4. Alleppey- Indian Venice 

With waterways being the main means of transport between houses and people, you don't have to book expensive tickets to Venice to explore the city built on water. 

5. Rann of Kutch: Mini Bonneville Salt Flats 

Here you can create your own land speed records in this vast expanse of stunning nothingness. One of the most beautiful sights here is experienced during night time, under the vast expanse of the star-studded sky. 

6. Chitrakoot Falls- The Niagara Falls of India 

Getting to the Niagara Falls could be one of the most expensive trips you could plan. The Chitrakoot Falls are India’s answer to the Niagara, and is a must visit the location in India.
