A tourist in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India

Why India?

Massive and mesmerising India, a land full of heat, colour, magnificent structures, great beaches, bizarre festivals, massive mountains and far too many pleasant people! Backpackers love the place as they can travel there for peanuts (curried of course!), but at the same time there are some exquisite locations and extraordinary hotels offering incredible luxury holidays in India. Maharaja’s palaces, converted ancient fortresses, brilliant five star beach resorts or palaces on wheels (train wheels), India has it all, with service and cuisine to match!

Rajasthan

Rajasthan is quintessential India, priority viewing, a magical, historical region the size of France loaded with extraordinary forts, extravagant Rajasthani palaces, monster moustaches, red saris, orange turbans, yellow deserts, blue homes, camel and elephant transport systems, fantastic shopping created by artisans imported by Rajput princes and amazing bedrooms owned by the same royalty but occupied now by tourists. There’re even some wildlife safari possibilities round the east side at Bharatpur and Ranthambhor. Explore the magic!
Just west of Delhi, Rajasthan is easy to get to and hard to leave.
