HIGHLIGHTS OF INDIA
The iconic sunrise over the Taj Mahal. The sunlight sparkles off the marble as it starts to absorb the warmth of the morning light. Getting there as early as possible will help you beat the crowds.
Darjeeling Toy Train – the toy train has UNESCO World Heritage status for a reason. This small steam engine slowly makes its way up through the steep mountains surrounded by beautiful countryside.
Shimla Hill Station – nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, Shimla used to be where the British would retreat to in the heat of the Indian summers. Elizabethan architecture mixed with the Indian life is wonderful fusion of the two cultures.
A night on a Keralan Rice Barge. Meander lazily through the fabled backwaters of Kerala in a former rice barge which have now been converted into comfortable air-conditioned houseboats.
Spotting the elusive tiger and the Asian rhino.
Scuba diving in the Andaman Islands. With some of the clearest waters in Asia and combined with the most colourful marine life, the Andaman Islands are a divers paradise.
Eating the food!
The contrast between a sunrise and a sunset cruise on the Ganges. The mornings on the Ganges are full of sights, sounds and smells to excite all your senses! In the evening the river is a lot more calm and relaxed.
India festivals – vibrant and full of life, festivals in India are always an exhilarating experience. From the colourful Holi festival to the camel festival in Pushkar, there are many different festivals to experience.
