Delhi and Rajasthan

Delhi and Rajasthan

As the pulsating capital, Delhi is an exotic melting pot of delicious food, culture and history. The administrative district of New Delhi and its amazing Lutyen designed buildings is well worth a stroll. Walking from iconic India Gate to the impressive presidential Palace, Rashtrapati Bhavan, is certainly a highlight of every Delhi visit.

The bustling market of Chandni Chowk represents Delhi in a nutshell – mouthwatering street snacks, mind-boggling bridal shopping, iconic Indian gifts, luxurious fabrics and heady spices to name a few. The impressive road on which Chandni Chowk is situated boasts sacred houses of worship of all religions – Sikh temples, churches, mosques, Buddhist temples and more.

Rajasthan is one of India’s most popular tourist destinations, and an overnight stay in Vrindavan and Mathura is highly recommended. Vrindavan by the Yamuna river is an experience of its own, whether it will be a boat ride on the river at sunset, a visit to one of the many Krishna temples, or tasting the wonderful milk and curd products.

Vrindavan is essentially the spiritual heart of India. From here it is on to Jaipur – don’t miss out on Amber Fort, it’s breathtaking!

Jaipur is the shopping capital of Rajasthan, and our favourite city is Jodhpur. The kind people, impressive history, and amazing views across the Brahmin blue houses from the top of the fort makes this a must-see. And last but not least, check out Bundi, a small town tucked away in the southern end of Rajasthan that boasts yet another majestic fort with the world-famous Chitrashala paintings and the annual Bundi Utsav Festival that celebrates the rich and colourful Rajasthani culture and heritage with folk dance, music and live performances.
