Holidays on the Indian Subcontinent
The Indian Subcontinent is a multi-cultural melange. Eclectic, frenetic, fantastic, it's an opportunity to immerse yourself in the lives and emotions of a billion other people. With an in-your-face attitude and extraordinary diversity, it's one of the world's most multi-dimensional destinations that causes visitors to love or loathe it, often in the course of the same trip.
Awash with traditions, history and festivals, India is the beguling heart of the region. From cutting edge contemporary cities to traditional villages by way of peaceful temples and riotous festivals, snow-capped summits and sun-drenched beaches, it's a country that you'll never forget. Darjeeling, Mumbai, Udaipur and Varanasi offer different city experiences; the Taj Mahal stands as an iconic monument and the Himalayas, beaches of Goa and backwaters of Kerala provide adventure and activity.
Elsewhere, Sri Lanka offers a quieter, calmer alternative, whether you settle in Kandy or Galle, explore the southern beaches or exceptional national parks. Destinations such as Bhutan and Nepal are there to be discovered and enjoyed in a more intimate way whilst hiking through the Himalayas, beneath Annapurna or Mt Everest.
