India Overview


If India is what you’ve set your heart on, then you’ve already chosen somewhere pretty amazing. But at Western and Oriental we want to improve on amazing by making sure your experience is unique to you.
 
We’ll help you create a holiday that is your kind of W&Onderful. We’ll find you a luxurious holiday that suits you down to the ground (or up to the palace). Or arrange a backwater cruise that’s truly out of this world. Or direct you to a National Park where you’ll discover the secret heart of this beautiful country. Whatever it takes to make your trip special is what we’re here for.
 
A MADE TO MEASURE EXPERIENCE
India has so much to offer it can be hard to know where to start, or stop. So when you talk to our experts you’ll find they’re full of ideas that help you create an experience that indulges every ambition or desire. We don’t believe you should be limited by rigid itineraries or schedules. You tell us what you want and we’ll tell you when, where and how to make that a reality, whether that’s a safari through a tiger reserve, or camping under the canopy of stars in luxury. If there’s something particular you want to see or do, such as see more wildlife, explore more culture, or visit more restaurants, we can arrange pretty much anything. If you want to mix and match experiences, cities or even other countries, then we can do that too. 
 
EXPERTS WHO LOVE INDIA
Everything we suggest or recommend is based on the real experiences of our India experts. Our team have visited every hotel and National Park we feature. They’ve travelled across deserts, through jungles, up mountains and up rivers to find you highlights above and beyond the ordinary. What our experts bring to each destination apart from a fountain of knowledge is a passion for India. They love this extraordinary nation of colour and want you to share the pleasure they’ve found here. We don’t think you’ll find that too hard to do!

India By Region 


East India

Stretching from the southern Himalayas to the Bay of Bengal, India’s East is its most unique and rural region. Vibrant temples, tribal villages, tea plantations and river ways, make up a vast majority of the East, making for a culturally rich journey experienced nowhere else in India. The colonial city of Calcutta with its literary and artistic heritage is home to museums, galleries and breathtaking architecture; whilst the National Parks make for wonderful wildlife spotting – you may even get a glimpse of the elusive Indian one-horned rhinoceros.

Kerala and South India

Tropical and spiritual, Kerala and the south is notably different to the rest of the country. With a history dating back over 3000 years, this slower paced region is rich in ancient relics and steeped in traditions. Abound in cultural and natural beauty, the people and architecture will inspire and delight, whilst the pristine beaches, serene backwater lagoons and lush jungles will relax the mind body and sprit. Renowned for its vast wildlife sanctuaries, the south is also a great place to go in search for India’s unique flora and fauna.
