India’s sheer diversity and multi layered culture cannot fail to impress even the most seasoned travellers for few countries offer the contrast and variety of this striking land. Bustling cities complement the majestic grandeur of the Himalayan foothills and the sweeping plains of Rajasthan where ornately decorative forts and palaces pay homage to the rich Rajputana history of this vast desert province. Discover the tigers, deer, monkeys and many species of exotic birds at the renowned Ranthambore National Park or contrast the the grand monuments and imperious buildings of Lutyen’s capital New Delhi with its neighbour, Old Delhi, a bustling patchwork of narrow streets and colourful bazaars.
A visit to India would not be complete of course without witnessing the most breathtaking sight of all in the famed Golden Triangle, the sunrise over the Taj Mahal. Then maybe travel for a spot of well earned relaxation to the tiny state of Goa, a unique blend of Indian and Portugese cultures, with miles of fine golden sands, colonial whitewashed churches and lush green paddy fields.
