From Megasthenes to Michael Palin, India has enthralled travellers for literally thousands of years and its modern incarnation, home to nearly one fifth of the world’s people, remains a country of incomparable fascination – whether you’re coming for the first time, or as a seasoned veteran, TransIndus as the leading India travel company can help you make the most of the destination.
The main problem facing any would-be traveller to the subcontinent, experienced or otherwise, is deciding where to start. The answer depends on what kind of holiday you have in mind, of course. But roughly speaking, if this is your first tour of India you’ll probably be setting your sights on one of two regions: either the “Golden Triangle” of Delhi (the capital), Agra (site of the Taj Mahal) and Jaipur (India’s flamboyant ‘Pink City’), with a possible extension deeper into the desert state of Rajasthan or Kerala and the historic highlights of neighbouring Tamil Nadu.
