    Muscat, Oman

    Directly translating as “safe anchorage”, Muscat certainly lives up to its name: its spotless streets and strictly organised dome-topped buildings clearly depict the city’s peaceful nature. That’s not to say Muscat is a dull affair, quite the contrary, the recently opened Royal Opera House has been drawing people from all over the world due to its exhilarating live performances.

    Mumbai, India

    Formerly known as Bombay, Mumbai is famed 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.

    At Sea.

      

  • 16-17 Mar 20

It still has its fair share of modern marvels, from skyscraper observation decks to water parks, but the city’s soul is still elegantly grounded in tradition, as it proudly boasts beautiful mosques and palaces.

  • 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.

  • Dubai, United Arab Emirates

    Known as the Hong Kong of Arabia, Dubai’s modern duty-free shopping malls and traditional souks offer some of the best bargains in the world on such luxury items as gold jewellery and designer creations. For a more historic outing, visitors can explore the museum at Al Fahidi Fort or venture out into the Old Quarter of Bastakia.

  • 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 (Bombay), 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.

  • Shimla

    Shimla

    Shimla is one of India's most popular hill resorts, buzzing with a happy flow of Indian vacationers and full of relics of its previous life as the summer capital of British India. Traffic is banned from the central part of town, so walking is pleasant with the maze-like alleys of the bustling bazaar cascade steeply down to traffic-infested Cart Rd.

Traditionally there are always more seats in economy, then as the cabin moves on, you have so many in premium, business and then first. A few airlines ...
