India 'is extravagant and luxurious'

Article content

20 November 2009

India is a top destination for those looking for a lavish experience, it has been suggested.

According to the New York Times, while the country is modernising at a fast pace, the Rajasthan region still provides a traditional atmosphere for those hoping for a touch of Indian culture.

It noted: "Old Rajasthan endures, evoking rulers with giant moustaches, harems of beautiful women in the finest coloured silks and some of the most spectacular palaces ever built."

One particular structure highlighted for its "sheer extravagance and luxury" was the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, which is a sandstone complex completed in 1943.

Readers were advised that it is now a 347-room hotel, with costs of up to $10,740 (£6,500) a night for its most premium offering - the Maharani Suite.

The country's government was recently recognised for its Incredible India tourism campaign by winning the World Travel Award 2009, the Press Trust of India reported.ADNFCR-2704-ID-19470581-ADNFCR
