So times are tough and for all those resident in the UK, sterling is not exactly showing great strength at the moment. So where is the best place to get more for your hard earned money? India! The pound has actually strengthened over the past year against the rupee but whether you are exchanging pounds or any other currency, India is generally considered an economical destination with an average meal costing as little as a few pounds and souvenirs ripe for bartering over in the markets.
But it is such a huge destination just where do you start? Well for most people it is the North of the country which holds the main attractions such as the Taj Mahal, the colourful cities of Rajasthan, the famed ghats of Varanasi and direct flights into Delhi. You could combine this with an overland trip to Nepal to trek in the Himalayas or enjoy a wildlife safari in Chitwan National Park. Or for those looking for something a little more unusual there is the colonial atmosphere of Darjeeling and Sikkim in the North-East. If you are looking for fiery cuisine, wildlife, beaches and culture or have already ticked off the sights of the North then the South is the region to head to – spot tigers at Periyar, drink tea amongst the plantations of Munnar, wander the temples of Madurai and relax on a backwaters cruise at Kerala. We even have a trip which encompasses the best of the whole of India!
Plus don’t forget we can always tailor-make an exclusive tour for you combining just the elements that you (and you alone) are looking for. Beach extensions to Goa, the famed Palace on Wheels train journey or visits to the tribal region of Orisha – why not give our tailor-made experts a call?
