All Eyes on India!

Posted: 22 March 2016

Boasting a vibrant culture, fascinating history, wondrous wildlife and jaw-dropping landscapes, there is a plethora of sights and sounds to embrace, exotic flavours to savour and ancient culture to captivate. Such an eclectic land, lends itself to a myriad of extraordinary experiences — from the past grandeur of incredible palaces and ancient forts, to the mêlée of modern India’s cities, such as Delhi and thriving Mumbai, there is culture and colour in abundance.

Taking a passage through India is a journey of a lifetime, and is one which will create memories that will last forever. Inhale the scents of the markets, which cannot fail to stir your senses, absorb the colourful culture, receive the impeccable service, and let India dance its way to your heart. From burgeoning cosmopolitan cities brimming with historic relics, plus a promising new ambition, one cannot help but be moved by the efforts of ingenious individuals, boldly seeking new opportunities to forge a new future for their families. Infectious with inspiration and impossible glamour, Mumbai perfectly exudes the new commercially driven, and rapidly developing, India.

Far from the attractive modernity of coastal Mumbai, are the timeless cultural appeal of ancient desert trading posts and sacred rivers. From the desert beauty of Jawai, with its leopards, camels and brilliant starry skies, to the holy Ganges river, or spectacular Himalayas, India has many wondrous landscapes to discover. Scattered temples, crumbling forts, ornate palaces and abundant wildlife sit, inextricably, alongside the warm, welcoming people across this great land. A mark in one’s passport is matched by an indelible mark that is left upon every traveller’s heart and conscience. So, sweep away your pre-conceptions, tear up the typical tourist route and discover the real India — taste the flavours, meet the people, and look past the stereotypical labels of an overcrowded nation obsessed with cricket and consumed by labour. Discover for yourself that it is, in reality, a nation blessed with a unique spirit, one with a melting-pot of rich colour and flavour.

To learn more about our India portfolio, or to create your own bespoke journey to India, please call our Travel Experts, Alison Lester and Myra Jones on 01244 897 555. Having recently visited India, and the cities of Jaisalmer, Jawai, Jodhpur, Varanasi, and Ananda in the foothills of the Himalayas, they would be thrilled to arrange your unique travel itinerary.
