Globetrotters may soon be looking up how to transfer money online in order to attend the festival of Holi in India, following a resounding recommendation by thetravelmagazine.net.

Sharron Livingstone, the website's editor, suggested that travellers may enjoy a variety of festivals on offer in the region.

"Diwalior Diwali or Deepavali is the festival of lights and symbolises the victory of light over darkness, good over evil - and is celebrated joyously all over the country," she offered.

Ms Livingstone explained that the Diwali Festival, held between October 15th and November 15th, is dedicated to the goddess Durga and is often related to a festival of wealth and prosperity.

"Holi is the festival of colour. This festival is the most fun and one of the major festivals of India but you have to have a sense of gaiety. It is celebrated with enthusiasm on the full moon day in the month of Phalgun which is the month of March," she added.

International travellers can attend the event and watch as people take turns inpouring coloured water over each other while kids throw water balloons at passers-by.

While India is a popular tourist destination, when looking at overseas countries to permanently move to Australia comes out on top.

According to Post Office International Payments, more Brits are sending money home from Australia than any other destination.

One in five people questioned by the group said they would most like to live down under, with fans citing its warm climate, exotic wildlife and cultural similarities as key points in the country's favour.
