Here at TransIndus we are eagerly awaiting the release of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel film.
The romantic city of Udaipur, where the film is set, is one of our favourite cities and is very popular with clients too. It’s no wonder this impressive lake city receives such great feedback, with its imposing City Palace surrounded by tight, twisting streets lined with brightly coloured sari shops, cafes and restaurants. All of this set against the delightful backdrop of the rolling Aravalli hills.
The Sapporo Snow Festival is Japan’s largest winter event and is fast becoming an annual attraction for both locals and foreign travellers. The magnificent snow sculptures and pristine ice statues stand proudly in Odori Park, a centrally located park in the heart of Sapporo spanning 1.5 kilometers. Other sights include Susukino, Sapporo’s famous red light district and Tsudome, a community dome.
A trip to Burma wouldn't be complete without trying some of the country's wonderful street food, and downtown Yangon is a great place to get stuck in.
Rajasthan has long been a favourite destination within India, and it continues to remain so. Most first visits to the sub-continent are not complete without a visit to the iconic Taj Mahal, India’s capital Delhi, and the pink city of Jaipur. The recent introduction of balloon flights in Rajasthan now allows visitors to experience some well known sights from a completely new perspective.
In June this year one of the rarest astronomical events in our universe will occur, a transit of Venus, when the planet passes directly between Earth and the Sun.
My first contact with India was over 70 years ago when, as a 14 years old schoolboy, I was evacuated with hundreds of others to join our parents working in India, Calcutta in our case, the Raj capital until 1912. A committee of 'Burra Sahibs' rapidly formed a war-time school to cope with this influx, naed the New School, Calcutta and Darjeeling, aka Harrow on the Hoogly.
India has an immense road network, with a vivid array of sights, sounds and smells. From creaking oxen carts to buzzing ‘auto-rickshaws’, brightly decorated trucks to flash modern cars, and bustling markets to new, shiny shopping arcades – the variety is endless. And what better way to experience it than by travelling on these roads yourself?
Directly reflecting the nation’s booming economy, India’s roads have been changing at a frantic pace over the past decade, with many narrow single tracks being replaced by dual-carriageways, and new roads appearing where there was previously nothing but barren land. But no matter how smooth the road may be, there is always an adventure out there!
Tonight (BBC2) the BBC's 'Natural World - Tiger Dynasty' continues to follow Baghani, as the tigress adapts to her new home in Sariska National Park, after being relocated from Ranthambore.
Sariska is about 5 hours drive from Delhi near Alwar, which has an Aman Resort. Sariska itself has Sariska Palace, which was the most popular place to stay, including for our clients, when the names Sariska and Ranthambore were usually uttered in the same breadth, as names synonymous with tiger havens. The number of tigers started declining, in both parks but more so in Sariska due to environmental factors as well as poaching.
