For travelers, September is a good month to get out and explore India. The monsoon season that delays and cancels so many travel plans is at its tail end in the month. That means lighter and fewer bursts of rain, and a dry but cool climate. This is also the last off-season month, which means you can still avail good discounts on hotels and resorts and avoid peak crowds at museums, monuments and other points of interest. There are also plenty of public holidays in September 2017 lined up, which should translate to plenty of opportunities to go exploring. Here is a look at all the September 2017 holidays to look out for.
