Our favourite things to see and do in India

Visit the Taj Mahal

The star of the show in Agra is of course, the Taj Mahal, undoubtedly one of the greatest monuments of all time. It was built as a mausoleum by the fifth Mughal Emperor, in memory of his beloved wife. The Taj stands in a formally laid-out walled garden; you will first see it reflected in the central canal. The whole building features a virtuoso display of carved marble and wonderful designs created with inset semi-precious stones.

Relax on a tropical beach

After a busy schedule of sightseeing or trekking in India, spend some time in tropical southern India. Kovalam is internationally renowned for its three adjacent crescent beaches - Hawa Beach, Lighthouse Beach and Samudra Beach. The beautiful bay is fringed with coconut palms and the calm waters are perfect for bathing. There's a large range of accommodation to choose from, and Ayurvedic treatments are available – or simply relax on one of the idyllic beaches!

Look for one-horned rhinoceros

Take an elephant-back safari in Kaziranga National Park, located in the flood plains of the Brahmaputra River. The most prized inhabitant of Kaziranga is the Greater One-Horned Indian Rhinoceros, but the park is home to as many as 180 different mammals and a rich variety of birds.

Attend a Buddhist festival, Indian Himalaya

Join in with the merriment and be mesmerised by the colourful costumed dances. Festivals are a highlight of the year. They provide the excuse to dress up, socialise, have fun and, at the same time earn, religious merit. The Sacred Dance Dramas or ‘Chhams’ are at the centre of the celebrations where monks in incredible costumes perform elaborate highly choreographed dances to an accompaniment of drums, cymbals and horns.
