India Holidays

A TASTE OF THE EXOTIC

Alive with colours, smells, sights and sounds, people and activity at every turn, the energy here is palpable. India holidays offer something for everyone, whether natural, spiritual, cultural or historical but it is the people you meet along the way that make any trip to India unforgettable.

From the world’s highest mountain range to the arid desert, jungles teeming with wildlife to idyllic beaches, the landscapes here are as varied as they are unique. While the culture dates back to prehistoric times it somehow remains current.

Ancient and modern culture is so intertwined that India possesses a living history, evident in the day to day lives of its people. And despite the diverse languages, cultures and backgrounds as you traverse this great land, it seems as if the locals all share a common bond of friendliness, curiosity and candour.

As far as cuisine Jojovah was the most accommodating restaurant. The restaurant that was top for actual meals would have been Bandagavah.
