India is a country that totally envelops every one of the senses with vivid colours, sounds and smells and the tastes of its regional cuisine. Everywhere you turn there is something of interest to enjoy, the architecture is both spectacular and diverse, the culture; food, dress and customs vary from region to region and the scenery boasts mountain vistas, lush jungles, desert plains and palm fringed beaches. Historic monuments are rife and the variety of activities on offer, are endless. From the bustling north to the sleepier south, time spent in India will certainly be memorable!
As an alternative, we would highly recommend combining a trip to India with either the staggeringly beautiful Maldive islands - a two hour flight from Bangalore, or with the magical mountainous country of Bhutan - less than two hours by air from Calcutta.
