India bristles with a mix of natural wonders, cultures and people that’s so eclectic, it defies belief. You’ll discover a kaleidoscope of new experiences wherever you look, and a destination full of surprises.

"If life is a map, you haven’t coloured it in until you’ve tasted the land of Gods and tigers, fables, Maharajas and mysteries."

India. A billion people, 17 languages, 5000 years of history, and the birthplace of four of the world’s major religions. This is a land of mesmerising multiculturalism; of landscapes from deserts and mountains to dense forests and perfect beaches; and of customs, complexity and incredible contrasts.

For the visitor, it’s difficult to know where to start – and many choose the ‘Golden Triangle’ of capital Delhi, historic Agra, and the ‘pink city’ of Jaipur. The country’s rich past has spawned hundreds of exquisite palaces, temples and monuments, and nowhere more so than here; meantime Rajasthan will delight with its tiger-inhabited forests and camel-crossed deserts. But whatever it is you expect, India will always give you more: endless and enduring possibilities.

Inside Knowledge

Creating special moments

  1. Delhi Delights

    Delhi Delights

    The old city of the Mughals is a hustling, bustling affair, dominated by two huge gems: the majestic Jama Masjid, one of the world’s largest mosques, and the legendary Red Fort, which offers a real contrast to the busy streets outside.

  2. White Marble Wonder

    White Marble Wonder

    No matter how many pictures you see of the Taj Mahal, the reality is even more beautiful. A perfectly-symmetrical palace, it was built by Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favourite wife, and took 20,000 men nearly 22 years to complete.

  3. The Rail Thing

    The Rail Thing

    Trains are big in India, and the Maharaja Express is an ultra-deluxe service fitted with every conceivable modern luxury. Its style reflects the opulence of the Maharajas, creating a magical world of red carpets, elephant polo and turbaned musicians.
