Highlights

  • Cochin, India

    Cochin, India

    A curious cocktail of Portuguese, Dutch, and British influence, the city of Cochin has been enticing traders and travellers alike for over 600 years. Sitting on the tropical Malabar Coast, it is the cultural centre for Keralan arts: unique enactments of costumed dance, music and storytelling. Fragrant spice markets cut the hot air with cardamom and clove, while antique stores groan beneath the weight of singing copper. Hit the backstreets of Fort Kochi for a deep and dreamy Ayurvedic massage, marvel at the Krishna murals that adorn the bedchamber walls of the Mattancherry Palace, or admire India’s one of the oldest European-built Christian churches.

  • Colombo, Sri Lanka

    Explore this exotic city and view colorful colonial buildings including the Presidential Secretariat, the Grand Oriental Hotel, and the Lighthouse Clock Tower. A “must” to visit is Pettah, Colombo's leading bazaar district. The narrow cobbled streets are lined with shops and street stalls offering the most unimaginable range of goods. Other noteworthy sights include Viharamahadevi Park, the city's largest and oldest green expanse; and the palatial mansions of Cinnamon Gardens.

  • Delhi

    The capital of India has a plethora of history, culture and magic, sporting its rich heritage with pride. You will hear Hindi, English, Punjabi and Urdu as you pass through two very different worlds - the ‘old’ and the ‘new’. Find monuments, museums, the performing-arts scene and some of the best places to eat.

  • Goa

    Portugal’s 500 year reign of Goa resulted in a beautiful coalition of Indian landscapes with Portuguese culture. It’s easy to identify her charms as palms slowly sway over the sun-soaked beaches, yet she also offers a deep sense of discovery that must be experienced first-hand.

  • Jaipur

    The pink city! Overflowing with colour, Jaipur once housed India’s royal family. The city was painted pink by order of Sawai Ram Singh to welcome Edward VII (the Prince of Wales) in 1876.
    Jaipur has many traditional shops selling hand-crafted goods. Skilled artisans, artists and craftsmen were attracted here and settled in the city.

  • Mumbai

    Mumbai, India

    Formerly known as Bombay, Mumbai is known for its near-chaotic streets. Locals barter over trinkets in crowded bazaars, fisherfolk are hard at work, exotic birds sing in the distance: it’s a lot to take in at first glance, but there’s a definite rhythm to the madness. Be sure to take a break and visit the world’s largest tropical urban forest, brimming with beautiful wildlife. There's plenty to see in Mumbai, but it's not generally in the form of stationary monuments like those in London, Paris, or Delhi. The art of experiencing Mumbai lies in eating, shopping, and wandering through the strikingly different neighborhoods and the various markets. Think of Mumbai as a 50-km (30-mile) -long open-air bazaar. Colaba, headed by Gateway of India, is the tourist district and main drag for visitors, and from the Gateway of India to Colaba Market, along the main road, is a walkable stretch of hotels, pubs, restaurants, and interesting shops. 

  • Phuket, Thailand

    Phuket, Thailand

    Once an entrepreneurial haven for merchants, Phuket Town is a direct result of its mixed cultural influence, held together by the cooperation of its ancestors. Across the beach-laden island you can expect old architecture renovated for the modern world, from eccentric art galleries through to hip coffee houses. Surrounded by white, sandy beaches and cliff-sheltered coves, its plunging waterfalls and impressive mountains, its cloudless days and fiery sunsets, it's easy to see why Phuket is a wonderful asset to Thailand for both the people who live there and tourists visiting. The beaches are beautiful, and this remains a top destination for snorkeling and diving (with more than 180 registered dive shops). The island offers some of the most exclusive resorts and spas in the world, yet the food, drink, and accommodations are cheap compared to most visitors' home countries (though Phuket is quite expensive by Thai standards). 

  • Singapore

    The ‘City in a Garden’ is full of surprises for those that traverse between its endless skyscrapers. Ancient rainforests brimming with monkeys and drongos, botanical gardens, peaceful farms and rustic paradises are hidden away behind Singapore’s seemingly normal exterior. Chinese, Malaysian and Indian heritage have defined Singapore’s Nonya cuisine as a unique experience of tantalising flavours, and should be appreciated by all travellers who visit this futuristic powerhouse city. Between culinary hot spots enjoy the ambitious shopping scene, ranging from consumer-filled temple boutiques to futuristic sci-fi-esque malls housing cutting edge gadgets at affordable prices. Particularly famed for its shopping scene, the city offers catwalk fashion and just-released technologies at affordable prices within its gloriously atmospheric malls. 

  • General View of the Taj Mahal Palace

    Taj Mahal Palace

    The Taj Mahal Palace & Tower is located opposite the majestic Gateway of India in Mumbai and is just minutes away from the city's commercial and shopping centres. The hotel is an architectural marvel and brings together Moorish, Oriental and Florentine styles. Offering panoramic views of the Arabian Sea and the Gateway of India, the hotel is a gracious landmark of the city of Mumbai. The hotel offers 565 generously-appointed rooms and suites, each adorned with original paintings and period furniture that exude an aura of old-world charm and elegance. The hotel features a gym with steam rooms and saunas and an outdoor swimming pool. Guests may also enjoy spa treatments. The hotel offers a distinctive dining experience serving traditional and contemporary dishes. Stay with us for a truly pleasant and unforgettable experience.
