If you think you’ve seen it all, you haven’t — not until you’ve been to the Pushkar Camel Fair. This 5-day livestock fair in Rajasthan, northern India, is a good way to get a taste for Indian culture: check out the bridal competition, moustache contest, and cricket tournament. Arrive by bus or train a few days before the full moon of Kartik in the Hindu calendar (October or November), when the fair starts. Once there, you can score a luxury tent at Camp Bliss and eat traditional food onsite. ($337 per night, includes all meals; pushkarcamelfair.com)
