India
10 Days

Rajasthan is India’s most popular destination and it’s easy to see why.

THE DESERT STATE OF RAJASTHAN IS THE LAST PLACE YOU WOULD ASSOCIATE WITH PALACES SHIMMERING ON IDYLLIC LAKES, ANCIENT FORTS OF STUNNING ARTISTRY, OR TEMPLES CARVED FROM WHITE MARBLE – BUT THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU’LL FIND.

Against this architectural cyclorama are some of India’s most colourful people, including brightly turbaned men with expansive moustaches and women whose beauty is legendary.

Rajasthan is a dry area, so milk, curd, butter and cream are often used instead of water. Popular dishes therefore, are often braised in milk or a combination of milk and curd. Breads (chapatti, naan etc) are widely available.
