Varanasi City Centre

Varanasi, also known as Kashi and Benaras, is the cultural capital of India. The city can be scorching hot in the summer months, if possible time your visit to fall between October and March, and bring something warm to wear for chilly days and nights.

Varanasi is well connected by train and bus, with multiple of each heading in every direction daily.

For one thing, alcohol is banned in the old city. Thus, one can put aside dreams of exotic cocktails at a fine restaurant. Though there are several five star hotels that offer good cuisine, the best of Varanasi lies in its deep tangles of alleyways, in its people, in its mysteries that come out at night.

Hoppa offers shuttle transfers in Varanasi.
