India – a country by name, but a continent in scale, India in one word is diversity: a place like no other.

India will surprise you with its unique once-in-a-lifetime experience and you better be prepared to enjoy it with your eyes open.
The peaks of the Himalayas band its north. Moving south, you pass through Rajasthan, a microcosm of India with its forts, palaces and temples, and the Taj Mahal, but also its bustling markets and opportunities to spot a tiger. In India’s northeast corner, Calcutta still exudes its colonial heritage in a landscape clothed with tea plantations.
West coast Mumbai is an improbable proposition – a hub of manufacturing where you can wander among art deco architecture or through a teeming bazaar. Down in India’s south, cruising Kerala’s backwaters on a converted rice barge is a suitably relaxed way to embrace this region’s laid-back approach to life.
