Truly an incredible destination, India is a land of diversity and colour, a showcase of architectural icons from the stone ruins of kingdoms past. From the elegant marble Taj Mahal to the strikingly modern Lotus Temple, it is a country remarkable for its many contrasting landscapes: the rugged mountains in the north to the lush and tranquil backwaters of Kerala, from the cool blue and calm coasts to the stark white-hot deserts of the interior.
This vibrant country tempts your senses as it pulses with passionate energy, light, sound and fragrance, characteristic of traditional festivals and rituals that have developed throughout its fascinating history. Be intrigued that, despite the intensity of the hustle and bustle that comes with its millions of inhabitants, India provides many opportunities to find peace and serenity: in the vast spaciousness of a majestic landscape or a moment’s stillness in a quiet corner of an intricately-decorated alcove.
For a traveller visiting India for the first time, An Indian Experience is an ideal itinerary since it includes some of the best known culturally rich and historically significant highlights of the country.
The odyssey starts by exploring the capital city, Delhi, an active metropolis with a unique combination of the ancient and the contemporary. Take some time to experience the taste sensations of the local cuisine, and notice how the heat and the spices change throughout the journey.
Leaving Delhi, proceed to the world-famous tribute of love, the Taj Mahal in Agra, then venture into the wild jungles of Ranthambore National Park to seek the Bengal tigers and other wild animals in their natural habitat.
Travel on through the mystical state of Rajasthan, a land of valour and gallantry, snake charmers, exotic and impenetrable for the beautiful, yet crumbling, city of Jaipur.
The trail then reaches the quaint blue city of Jodhpur and is followed by the Venice of the East, Udaipur, with its extraordinary, shimmering lake.
The journey returns to Delhi for some last-minute shopping at some of the famous street markets, or even the modern stores, that Delhi is now famous for. With return airfares and taxes with Singapore Airlines from Sydney, this Indian Experience is the perfect introduction to this country of wonders.
