Travel Information

India is a land of opulence, offering a plethora of lavish experiences to indulge in. From cruising on private yachts to taking hot air balloon rides over the iconic Taj Mahal, India has it all. The country is also home to an abundance of luxury hotels and resorts, meaning that whatever your idea of luxury may be, India is sure to exceed your expectations.

With a diverse range of flavors and dishes, foodies will find plenty to sample in India. Some luxury hotels in India offer fine dining experiences with award-winning chefs, while others offer unique dining experiences such as private dinners in a palace. For those interested in learning more about Indian cuisine, there are cooking classes and food tours available. One of the most popular dining experiences in India is the thali, a platter of various dishes served on a large plate, allowing diners to sample a variety of flavors and textures in one meal. A number of high-end restaurants also offer fusion cuisine, combining traditional Indian flavors with international techniques and ingredients.

India is also a phenomenally popular destination for those seeking luxury wellness experiences. Ayurveda, a traditional Indian system of medicine, is a popular choice for those seeking holistic healing and relaxation. Many luxury hotels and resorts offer Ayurvedic treatments such as massages, herbal baths, and yoga classes. In addition to Ayurveda, India also offers meditation retreats, detox programs, and fitness classes. Whether you’re looking to unwind and de-stress or improve your overall health and well-being, India’s spa and wellness offerings are sure to leave you feeling rejuvenated.

The state of LGBTQ+ rights in India is not as cut-and-dry as it might be in other South Asian countries. Whilst gender non-conformity has long been present through the role of the official third-gender Hijras, there are still social taboos surrounding homosexuality. Legal and cultural attitudes are improving- in 2018 the Supreme Court of India ruled that same-sex relationships cannot constitutionally be criminalized.

Things to do in India

The Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal, a stunning white marble mausoleum located in Agra, India, is a world-renowned landmark and one of the seven wonders of the world. Built in the 17th century by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj Mahal is a must-see destination for travelers to India. Private tours of the palace offer a more personalized and intimate experience, allowing visitors to explore at their own pace with the guidance of a knowledgeable tour guide. This is especially beneficial for those looking to avoid the crowds and long lines that often accompany this popular tourist attraction.

The Golden Temple

The Golden Temple, also known as Sri Harmandir Sahib, is a Sikh temple located in the city of Amritsar, India. This sacred site is renowned for its stunning golden architecture and serene atmosphere. Visitors can witness the daily rituals and prayers of the Sikh community, and even partake in the langar, a free communal meal served to all visitors regardless of their religion or background. The Golden Temple is not only a religious site but also a cultural and historical landmark. It was constructed in the 16th century and has undergone numerous renovations and expansions over time. The temple’s breathtaking golden architecture is particularly striking during sunrise and sunset when it is bathed in a warm, golden glow. A visit to the Golden Temple is a uniquely spiritual experience for any traveler in India.

The City Palace

The City Palace, located in the vibrant city of Jaipur, is a magnificent example of Rajasthani architecture that is a must-visit for any traveler in India. Constructed in the early 1700s, the palace complex boasts a series of courtyards, gardens, and buildings that showcase the rich history and culture of the region. Visitors can immerse themselves in the palace’s numerous museums and galleries, which display a range of artifacts from ancient weapons and armor to intricate textiles and artwork. The Peacock Gate is a standout feature of the City Palace, with its stunning peacock motifs and intricate mosaics. Another highlight is the Diwan-i-Khas, a breathtaking hall that was once used for private audiences with the Maharaja. The City Palace is a true gem of Jaipur and a testament to India’s vibrant cultural heritage.

If you’re planning a trip to India, it’s important to ensure that your travel documents are in order. To enter India, most travelers will need a tourist visa, which can be obtained through the Indian embassy or consulate in your home country. Additionally, your passport must be valid for at least six months beyond your planned departure date. To avoid any last-minute issues, it’s recommended to apply for your visa and passport well in advance of your trip.

Many major airlines offer flights to India’s major cities, including Delhi, Mumbai, and Bangalore. Some of the most popular airlines for international travel to India include Emirates, Qatar Airways, and Etihad Airways. Once you arrive, you’ll likely land at one of India’s busiest airports, such as the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi or the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai, both of which offer a wide range of connections to other destinations within the country.

India is a country that is best explored by train. With over 7,000 stations and more than 23 million passengers every day, the Indian Railways network is one of the largest in the world. For tourists, some of the most popular train routes include the Palace on Wheels, which takes you through Rajasthan, and the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, which offers stunning views of the Himalayas.
