Where to Go

It is almost impossible to explore all of India in a single holiday adventure. It would be wise to focus on number of holiday packages instead. Golden Triangle is the popular Tour package in India which covers exploration of Agra- the home of Taj Mahal, Delhi and Jaipur in Rajasthan. The desert, forts, palaces and the rich culture of Rajasthan has been magnetically attracting visitors from different corners of the world. If you wish for spiritual upliftment, then Varanasi is the city of your choice which is home to the holiest Hindu river of Ganges. Sikkim is another popular holiday destination.
