There is no such thing as ‘essential India’. The length and breadth of the country holds such a vast expanse of experiences that it is difficult to fathom in one trip. But we’ve chosen the best cities to give you an insight into the old and new – the urban and rural – the historical and contemprary. On this trip, you will be able to see how the country has shaped over the centuries. India wears the remnants of the past centuries and its new 21st century avtaar with applomb. You can see this in well-maintained monuments, bustling markets, food joints, the speeding metro and hip bars across the cities. We give you a flavour of all of this and more.
We call this itinerary the ‘High Life’as you experience India from the gaze of luxury where your stay is concerned. You wend through Delhi, the famous marble Taj Mahal and the streets of Jaipur. Then you go further into Rajasthan, visiting the lake city of Udaipur and the Jodhpur in the shadow of the grand Mehrangarh Fort. A taste of the Nizami hospitality is awarded in Hyderabad and then you make your way to the commercial and movie capital of India, Mumbai.
