INDIAN
SUBCONTINENT

Kaleidoscope of colour

The Indian subcontinent is known for its deep-rooted cultural traditions, mouth-watering cuisine and vibrant festivals. For centuries, India has enticed merchants and mercenaries to its mystical lands with the promise of untold riches and when it comes to opulent splendour, no one puts on a better show – think bejewelled palaces, princely forts and tales of valour. In stark contrast the hidden mountain kingdom of Bhutan represents a world where monasteries teeter on lonely mountain tops and happiness is a measure of wealth, while Sri Lanka retains its title of ‘jewel of the Indian Subcontinent’ with its tropical beaches and cool tea plantations. Across the continent, wildlife abounds. The birding is outstanding and the shimmering forests harbour lions, leopards and tigers.

DESTINATIONS YOU'LL LOVE

Bhutan

Spiritual Kingdom of Happiness

Bhutan

Enigmatic, unspoilt and deeply spiritual, the Kingdom of Bhutan is regarded as one of the world's last ‘Shangri‐La's’. It measures its wealth not by GDP but by ‘Gross National Happiness’, and is carbon negative by absorbing more carbon than it emits. For a limited number of visitors, this means peaceful forests, authentic cultural heritage and a sense of spiritual purity.

India

Bejewelled splendour

India

For centuries, India has enticed merchants and mercenaries to its mystical lands with the promise of untold riches and when it comes to opulent splendour, no one puts on a better show. Walk the streets of any Indian city and find a dizzying array of religions, languages, food and culture that few countries can boast. Explore secretive jungles, spice-laden markets, places of pilgrimage and fairy-tale castles lost in time.

Sri Lanka

PEARL OF THE INDIAN OCEAN

Sri Lanka

Few islands in the world offer the diversity that exists in Sri Lanka: ancient cities, rich religious festivals, colonial memories, rolling tea plantations, an astonishing variety of bird and animal wildlife and some of the best beaches in the Indian ocean. It showcases a bustling and chaotic way of life yet enchants visitors with a potpourri of cultures, religions, races, customs and its sheer natural beauty.

Exellent and wonderful, reaching way above expectations.
