After exploring the sights of Old and New Delhi as well as the spectacular Taj Mahal, journey through the princely state of Rajasthan to take a closer look at the region’s magnificent forts and explore cities that are full of atmosphere and character, set against the stunning desert scenery.
This tour is specially designed to ensure you enjoy not only a must-see and do of the region but also care is taken to ensure you get enough time to explore and enjoy the way you like. Though every destination is a highlight of this tour but most memorable will be staying at the Alsisar Mahal and Ummaid Lake Palace as well as Visit to Taj Mahal, spotting Tiger in wild and Colourful City of Jaipur.
Discover the fascinating culture, cuisine and natural heritage of Myanmar. A country filled with surprise and intrigue, shared by welcoming and friendly Burmese people. Begin your Myanmar holiday in the quiet and compared to its neighbouring countries, relatively undeveloped city of Yangon, formerly known as Rangoon. Explore the spectacular landmark of Shwedagon Pagoda and reclining Buddha of Kyaukhtatgyi Pagoda. We also uncover the art, antiques and enthralling architecture Yangon is home to.
From Yangon, head up to Bagan, a plain strewn with fascinating temples and pagodas. Begin at an elevated temple, enjoying its breathtaking views over Bagan before exploring others including the majestic Ananda. Meander through Nyaung Oo Market where villagers gather to sell their produce and wares before sitting down to a cup of sweet Burmese tea.
From Bagan, it’s a short flight to Heho, set within the heart of the Shan State. We make our way to Nyaung Shwe at the northern end of Inle Lake and visit the local monasteries, nunneries and Museum of culture. We spend the next few nights on Inle Lake, exploring all it has to offer, ranging from a scenic winery to markets and the Pa-Oh Village of Indein where there is a chance to meet locals and observe their traditional lifestyles. We also wander through the beautiful Alaung Sitthou area.
From Inle Lake, fly back to Yangon and embark on a tour called ‘On The Blessings Trail‘ that uncovers the various religions practised in downtown Yangon. While walking through this lively section of town we’ll also stumble upon local markets selling everything from fresh produce to temple offerings to traditional medicine.
This tour not only exposes you to great culture and luxurious accommodation, it also encompasses all the major sites of the Cultural Triangle before taking a leisurely route through the centre and south visiting temples, tea plantations and a national park to reach one of the glorious beaches that stretches the length of the southwest coast. Highlights of the north include Anuradhapura, the 4th-century cradle of Buddhism, the exquisite carved rock Buddha images at Polonnaruwa and Kandy with its wonderful Peradeniya Botanical Gardens and the Temple of the Tooth. Carry on up to the High Country to relax on a charming tea plantation before going to the elephant and leopard Yala National Park located in the southeast. Follow the coast and explore the fort in Galle, then head north to beautiful beaches of northern Galle where you can relax and soak in the Sri Lankan sun.
Rajasthan, ‘Land of Kings’ is steeped in romantic history, chivalry and valour. It boasts of some of the finest fortress palaces against the stark desert landscape with its highly coloured costumes of local, turbaned men and richly jewelled women, the Havelies and villages, fairs and festivals. This tour takes you back to a bygone era.
