Few countries are as chaotic and colorful as India, characteristics perfectly embodied in its annual spring festival of love: Holi. The 16-day Hindu holiday celebrates new beginnings. And the divine love between Hindu gods Radha and Krishna with an onslaught of rainbow pigment and dancing. Beyond this incredible festival, Mumbai is teeming with life. See the Gateway of India on the Arabian Sea, visit ancient temples. And make your way to nearby Elephanta Island to explore its hand-carved caves adorned with Hindu gods.

If bartering in a bustling medina sounds like your ideal vacation, Morocco is calling your name. Explore marketplaces, mosques, gardens, and palaces in this North African city. Marrakech is also a frugal traveler’s best friend, with an exchange rate of 10 U.S. cents per Moroccan dirham. And an extremely walkable infrastructure. Don’t pass on a camel ride through the Sahara, and take a hot-air balloon ride over the city. And surrounding desert to get the full perspective. Trips That Will Change Your Life
