Why We Love India

From

Peter

Urban Bustle

Urban life in India is abundant with sensory delights. From the moment you step foot into the hustle and bustle of the cow-cluttered streets, you are engulfed by an explosion of colours and powerful aromas. Jaipur, The Pink City, is a vibrant metropolis comprised of winding stairwells guiding you between the exquisite selection of textiles shops. The Blue City of Jodhpur can be easily navigated on foot or in a tuk-tuk meandering through the small cobbled streets, before exploring the busy markets outside of the city walls. Witness the washerwomen on the banks of the River Ganges in the mystical city of Varanasi.

Wildlife & National Parks

India is home to an enormous variety of wildlife. Spend the day in the Kanha National Park, one of India’s largest tiger reserves, and head to the Himalayas for a rare sighting of a snow leopard. Enjoy sunset drinks amongst birdlife in beautiful forts or sit down for dinner in the jungle. Take the family on safari in Panna National Park or glide through the calm waters of Ladakh, where the aqua lagoon sits nestled in between jagged mountains.

A Land of Contrasts

The snow-capped mountains in the north of India provide a stark contrast against the country’s southern region that is awash with luscious vegetation and marshlands. Head to the Himalayas to practise morning prayers with local monks in hilltop monasteries, or hop in a coracle (Indian wicker boat) to gently make your way through the backwaters of blissful Kerala in the south. Trek through the awe-inspiring scenery of Sikkim or visit the peaceful old town of Cochin that thrives on fishing with giant nets.

Majestic Architecture

India houses a plethora of pristine palaces and fascinating forts. As well as visiting the iconic sites of Taj Mahal and the Amber Palace, you can also experience this splendour yourself and be treated like a maharaja in opulent palaces that have been given a new lease of life as magnificent hotels. Wake up to peacocks roaming the grounds outside your bedroom window at Umaid Bhawan, or immerse yourself in the grandeur of the floating Lake Palace in Udaipur, famed for its appearance in James Bond’s ‘Octopussy’. Alternatively, you may enjoy travelling in style and comfort on the Maharaja Express train.
