Lonely Planet Magazine India inspires travellers to sample different cultures first-hand, discover new people, and learn fascinating stories about every place.

This September, TRAVEL FOR ROMANCE. And remember: you can travel alone for romance. It’s the destinations that demand your lovin’.

Live the slow life on the Italian island of SICILY – cook pasta with local produce, careen around on little scooters, it’s really all good. Or you could make your way to HAWAI’I, where you can hit the waves, come face-to-face with an active volcano, and go on other exciting adventures. In NEW ZEALAND, hop into a campervan to road-trip along the country’s North Island – sparkling caves, erupting geysers, there’s a lot to discover. Or romance the rails as you make your way across Europe from LONDON to VENICE. But, if you’d rather stay in the country, we’ve got an exhaustive list of things to do in HYDERABAD in our bonus feature – there’s sure to be something you’ll love.

You could also make the most of the last of the monsoon with a quick getaway this month; we’ve got five great options in our Easy Trips section. Go on a romantic cultural getaway in NARLAI, RAJASTHAN. Or go river rafting down the Kundalika in KOLAD, MAHARASHTRA. If you’d rather do nothing, choose to relax in MAHABALIPURAM, TAMIL NADU. Rediscover your childhood vacations down south when you visit VAGAMON, KERALA, where you’ll find many rolling meadows and Malabari feasts. For a bit of luxury, treat yourself to spa therapies and tonnes of downtime in FARIDABAD, HARYANA.

PLUS: We’ve got easy-to-tear-fold-and-carry Mini Guides so you don’t have to break the bank when you visit BUDAPEST, HUNGARY, and discover some of India’s best sacred architecture and traditional crafts across ORISSA.
