    Looking at the calendar for the year ahead it is often difficult to know where to go when you are able to go. Throw in the other factors of what you like doing, the places you would like to see and the budget you have at your disposal, the options narrow a little further. Then there are festivals, holidays and natural phenomena to consider, not to mention local constraints and the practicalities of the journey itself. With this in mind, we have compiled a month by month list of itineraries that are ideal fo

    With it’s sultry climate, varied topography, delicious food and congenial hospitality, Kerala has long been an attractive proposition for travelers wanting to experience an Indian way of life that vastly differs from the dry and dusty plains of Rajasthan and the teeming tourists on the Golden Triangle.

    Years ago, someone once said to me “Vietnam is more than a war you know”, and it was at that moment that I realized that my notion of the countries history was entirely unfounded and although the years of the ‘American War’, as the Vietnamese refer to it, were relatively short, I had consigned the whole nations importance to popular American interpretations through film and song. On this, I am delighted to have been so wrong...

    The old adage of ‘Book early to avoid disappointment’ cannot be denied, particularly if you are looking to get away over the Christmas period. If you have your heart set on foregoing the traditional trimmings to be somewhere exotic and hot this Christmas then you could do a lot worse than considering these fabulous places in India...

    The months of April to September are usually considered the off season in Southeast Asian countries. However, in many ways it can be the best time to visit this part of the world. Apart from hotel rates being more affordable and there being fewer people at the tourist attractions, some festivals and natural phenomenon only happen during this time.

    India is full of anomalies, contradictions and surprises. Things that make you think, that fill you with wonder and make you ask how, when and why? The people too are an enigma with the full spectrum from the richest to the poorest, the humble to the proud, the profane to the divine, all living in seeming harmony, jostling one another along the bumpy road of life.

    Put your driving skills to the test in Rajasthans Thar Desert in modified Maruti jeeps that are thrilling to drive over any terrain... One of the standard ‘experiences’ whilst staying in Jodhpur is to visit the villages of the local area on a ‘Jeep Safari’. Whilst this is interesting, the Bishnoi tribes are still living a subsistence lifestyle and their daily routines have changed little over the years and the Brahman elders are permitted to consume opium ritually, there is a fine line that divides genuine

    Ask any Tour Operator in this country what the best time to visit Kerala is and invariably they will tell you that it is between the months of November and March with a premium being paid over the Christmas period. Whilst these are certainly the driest months in Kerala, it comes as a surprise to many Keralans that this is the considered opinion of the trade in the UK as there are many benefits to traveling outside of these restricted months.

    The Keralan Tourist board has carefully cultivated the image of 'God’s Own Country' as a land with bubbling streams, beautiful mountains, pristine backwaters and golden beaches that stretch for miles. However, Kerala has been exploited by tourism and some experiences have been undermined by their own success whilst others have simply faded away. It is now as easy to make the wrong choices as it is to have a wonderful experience …

    I am often asked where I go on holiday with my family in India. From my holidays I want it all :- a combination of experiences to include ancient wonders, natural habitats, wild animals, mountain views and lazy, sultry days on palm fringed, golden sands; I am interested in seeing the real India and prefer a route that avoids mass tourism but has special places to stay en route. One itinerary through India ticks all these boxes and more, a journey through the picturesque countryside of the less visited state
