India is without doubt one of the most exciting and rewarding travel destinations in the world. An intoxicating medley of vibrant cities, colours and cultures, art and architecture, languages and landscapes, with an ancient history that has left its mark on this huge country of over a billion people.
The many civilisations that have occupied and made India their home, have each contributed to the incredible collection of forts, palaces, temples and mosques for which the country is renowned. Each civilisation contributing in turn to the fabulously varied cuisine, exotic festivals and fairs. There is a vast range of accommodation options available in India, most of which are excellent value for money. Options include some of the world’s most luxurious five star hotels, former palaces and the homes of rich merchants that have been converted to hotels, as well as plenty of more modest accommodation including jungle lodges and safari camps.
