INTRODUCTION TO INDIA

Oh, India. Is there any country more enchanting, more memorable and more truly unique than you? Between the unparalleled natural beauty, vibrant colourful culture and irresistible aromas that hit you from every angle, this is the destination to visit if you’re in the mood to be captivated by chaos. This is the land where every mountaintop, majestic palace complex and bustling bazaar tells its own unique story, and you’ll soon fall head over heels for the diverse blend of languages and cultures that make up the rich tapestry of this sprawling Asian paradise. With every region offering you a new breadth of colour, flavour and energy, an India tour is bound to tease you, teach you and surprise you at every turn - setting your imagination alight the second you step off the plane.


India trips are all about uncovering ancient secrets, unearthing eclectic sub-cultures and awakening your soul to new adventures, experiences and tastes. From the lush tranquillity of Mumbai’s hanging gardens to the lively street vendors of Old Delhi, the spiritually-infused yoga vibes of palm-tree lined Goa to the pink hues of Jaipur’s Amber Fort, India’s pure scale will have you spoilt for choice, no matter what brought you there. Self-confessed shopper? India’s markets will provide you with an endless stream of lehengas, scarves, saris and spices in colours you didn’t even know existed. Wildlife enthusiast? Ranthambore National Park will have your insta shots filled with tigers, monkeys and lush flora. City dweller? Let the guided tours of Delhi’s winding backstreets and the roaring ruckus of Mumbai show you a new side of city life.


Of course, much of India’s allure is attributed to one very important part of travelling: the food. Indian cuisine brings the flavour; countering the heat of spicy meat and sizzling non-veg dishes with the soothing creaminess of raita, kulfi and of course lassi. No better interlude to wandering the legendary streets of Udaipur with some Indian snacks, namely kachoris or parathas. Or perhaps gliding on Kerala's backwaters will work up an appetite for South Indian dosa. One thing’s for sure, after a trip to India, your palette will never truly be the same.
