We asked expats and digital nomads what they appreciate the most about the local culture in India. They wrote...

"Expatriates in India often appreciate the country's vibrant culture, plentiful customs and traditions, and welcoming hospitality. They are often fascinated by the variety of unique cuisines, languages, and dialects present in India. They are also impressed by the religious diversity and tolerance that exists in India, as well as the country's great history and heritage. Additionally, many expats appreciate the colorful festivals, traditional music, dance and other art forms found in India," said another expat in India.

"There is a cheerful religious freedom that I have never seen anywhere else - Sikh gudwaras next to Muslim mosques, Buddhist temples, Christian churches, Hindu temples. The variety of food, particularly vegetable-based, is great: even if you're not vegetarian, it's worth trying and usually tastes better than the meat dishes," wrote a member who made the move to Mussoorie, India.
