Destinations in India

  • 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.
  • Himalayas


    Set in an area of unparalleled natural beauty, the Himalayas are India’s spiritual centre: lush Sāl forests dot the banks of the sun-spangled Ganges, and the ancient holy towns of Rishikesh and Haridwar nestle in the foothills.
  • Kanha National Park

    Kanha National Park

    It’s not surprising that Kanha National Park was the inspiration for Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book; tigers, leopards, wild dogs and sloth bears pad the forest floor, and tribes of monkeys rule the treetops.
  • 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


    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


    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.
  • Srinigar


    Srinagar is the lake-dotted and valley-surrounded summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir.
  • Thanjavur


    A cultural treasure chest in historic southern India, Thanjavur – formerly known as Tanjore – fully deserves its reputation as an artistic, religious and architectural hub: it’s no wonder the government have dubbed it a national heritage site.
  • West Bengal

    West Bengal

    Lively West Bengal is rich with memories of its colonial and ancient past: this former capital of the British Raj is home to iconic palaces, temples, mosques and ruins dating back thousands of years.
