Destinations in India

  • Delhi

    Delhi

    India's capital can be bamboozling, but once you look beyond the chaos and colour, you'll find an ancient city that’s rapidly modernising, with one foot in the past and the other careening towards the future.
  • Karnataka

    Karnataka

    Millennia ago, Karnataka was the seat of ancient empires. Today, follow in their rulers’ footsteps though Dravidian temples, Vijayanagara ruins and the royal city of Mysore… or just lounge on the pristine beaches by the Arabian Sea.
  • Kerala

    Kerala

    Coconut-studded coastlines, canal-like backwaters, and undulating evergreen hills – the tropical beauty of this south-west swathe of India is unrivalled.
  • Pench National Park

    Pench National Park

    As Pench National Park’s most-protected residents, the tigers burn especially bright in this green expanse, teeming with life. Set in the central Indian highlands, below Madhya Pradesh, this tropical spot will fascinate aspiring Attenboroughs and Mowglis.
  • Rajasthan

    Rajasthan

    With its maharaja’s palaces, dazzling sari fabrics and swathes of russet-red desert, Rajasthan and its hubs of Jaipur, Jodhpur and tiger-toting Ranthambore National Park is the stuff of fairy tales.
