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.
The Darjeeling Toy Train – this toy train has UNESCO World Heritage status for a reason. The 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 was where the British used to retreat to in the heat of the Indian summers. Elizabethan architecture mixed with Indian life is a 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 - these 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, combined with the most colourful marine life, the Andaman Islands are a diver's paradise.
Eating the food! From biryani to tandoori chicken to banana chips, India's vast range of aromatic cuisine is irresistible.
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's 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.
