Bringing people together from all walks of life, the vibrant Holi Festival of Colours is an annual celebration to welcome in spring. The colourful festival is originally from India, but has followed its population as they relocate all over the world and you'll now find spectacular celebrations closer to home than you might think.
As the home and birthplace Holi traditions, there are hundreds of celebrations and festivals all over India that can last up to a fortnight. Colours are to be found in every corner of most cities and regions, so there's no chance of missing out. If you can't reach India in March, Mumbai also hosts the "Colour Festival" in August.
