Welcome to India
"This is India; the land of dreams and romance, of fabulous wealth and fabulous poverty, of splendor and rags, of tigers and elephants, the cobra and the jungle, the country of a thousand nations and a hundred tongues, of a thousand religions and two million gods, cradle of the human race, birthplace of human speech, mother of history, grandmother of legend, great-grandmother of tradition — the one land that all men desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for the shows of all the rest of the globe combined." Mark Twain
In one word, India is ‘diversity’. Glamorous and beguiling, splendid and romantic, energetic and colourful, the entire country is awash with experiences for both the daring and the cautious traveller. She lays claim to the soaring snow-capped mountains of the Himalayas, the sleepy rhythmic backwaters of Kerala and everything in between, not to mention some of the world’s most outstanding luxury hotels – from historic havelis to royal palaces and forts of the maharajas.
Across the land you will find amazing culture, sumptuous food, spectacular scenery, effervescent metropolises, inherent kindness, unsurpassed luxury and infectious happiness that is prevalent throughout the country. It can almost be described as a collection of countries due to its vast size and dazzling regional array of languages, cuisines and religions.
Some people feel they can only do India justice if they travel for a long period, but we couldn’t disagree more, even 10 days is enough. The trick with India is to do less in detail, rather than more, and then return to explore different parts; you will find that there are endless things to discover.
To help you navigate your way through the country, we have split India rather unconventionally into North and South India. North India will take you to Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, The Himalayas and Ladakh, Gujarat, Assam and Nagaland to name a few. South India includes Tamil Nadu, the Andaman Islands, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
