India train 'a luxury'

Article content

14 December 2009

India travel is more extravagant upon the Golden Chariot train, it has been suggested.

Writing for the Observer, Sarfraz Manzoor noted that the vehicle is "undoubtedly a luxury", describing it as a five-star resort on wheels.

According to the journalist, the locomotive has 19 carriages, 11 of which are for passengers, with each providing four cabins and an attendant per coach.

"The cabin was the size of a small hotel room, with a double bed, wooden side cupboards, hand-woven bedspreads and intricate carving on the ceilings and furniture," he remarked.

Travelling across the southern state of Karnataka, individuals are taken from Bangalore to Goa, with a wildlife safari at Nagarhole National Park also included.

The Golden Chariot is a "dizzying adventure" for any that want to explore India's culture, religion and nature during their stay in the country, Mr Manzoor concluded.

Kumari Selja, India's minister of tourism and culture, recently stated that UK visitors are extremely important to the nation as they are adventurous and go to many different places.
