Get to know India with our 6 different routes

India is a vast country whose breathtaking diversity absorbs many travellers for months – and our six different destinations are the gateways to exploring its 29 different states and seven union territories. If you're new to the country, read some need-to-know facts before you go. 

Plaza Mayor at night

Mumbai

Energetic, cosmopolitan, and cacophonous, Mumbai is the starting point for many a traveller in India. The country’s largest city mixes in culture, landmarks, and history – look out for the astonishing colonial-era Chhatrapati Shivaji train station, and Gateway of India arch monument – with a modern, upscale restaurants and bar scene. It’s also the birthplace of India’s famous movie industry, Bollywood, and is famed for its prestigious fashion week and fantastic shopping.

Delhi

With a rich history reaching back five millennia, Delhi is a reminder of several lost empires. But beyond Old Delhi’s winding alleys and haveli mansions, the Indian capital’s ultra-modernity has fast-risen, with skyscrapers, malls, and swanky bars all jostling for space, all connected by an efficient metro system. Together with Agra and Jaipur, the Indian capital is part of the ‘Golden Triangle’ of the country’s northeast, a popular route for travellers exploring the must-see UNESCO heritage sites including Qutub Minar, Red Fort, and Humayun’s Tomb.

Bengaluru

The Silicon Valley of India knows how to balance work and life – Bengaluru (also known as Bangalore) has been crowned the most livable city in India. The city's buzz extends beyond the IT cloud, with residents enjoying contemporary restaurants, bars, designer boutiques, parks, gardens, and even an increasingly prominent microbrewery scene. Visitors are also wowed by its temples, palaces, and Victorian-era architecture, while a pleasing climate makes exploring it all the better.

 

The central boulevards of Las Ramblas

Kolkata

Kolkata is celebrated as India's tea capital - you'll find the best chai on every other street corner sold in clay cups. The city also serves up some of the finest street food in the whole country, while the famous New Market comprises 2,000 stalls stuffed with seafood, saris and crafts. Chockful of memorials, monuments, and museums, the city is also highly cultured, and is revered as the birthplace of many of India's finest poets, writers, filmmakers, and Nobel Prize Winners.

 

Parade and carnival

Chennai 

Formerly Madras, Chennai is renowned as a centre of arts, culture, and religion – visitors here stand in awe at some of the oldest and most elaborate Hindu temples in the world. Beaches, however, prove one of the city’s main draws, along with excellent food characteristic of South India. Chennai locals are also particularly passionate about India’s national sport, cricket – with the city’s Chidambaram Stadium drawing some of the biggest crowds in the country. 

 

Plaza de Espana

Hyderabad

Famed as an affluent hi-tech hub, Hyderabad hosts the Indian HQs of the likes of Google, Dell, and Microsoft – but the Old City has helped it emerge as a popular destination, with ancient monuments, royal palaces, and fort towers. Don’t miss The Charminar, an Islamic mosque known as ‘the Taj Mahal of Hyderabad’ – and experience the colourful chaos of a lively traditional bazaar. The city is also the cradle of ‘Tollywood’, Hyderabad’s own Telugu-language film industry.

Many cities offer food tours, where you can learn about local communities and their cooking traditions – while colourful spice markets teeming with the likes of coriander, cardamom, and turmeric mean that you can pick up your own spice kit to take home with you.
