The Best Exotic Places in India – Rajasthan Special
Discover the magical landscapes and spectacular sights of India’s most colourful region with Barefoot Traveller’s 12-night Rajasthan Special package perfect for couples and families. Visit the vibrant cities and beautiful backdrops of Rajasthan including all the must-see sights of the Golden Triangle of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur.
This Rajasthan tour package starts with a city tour of Delhi and you’ll experience first-hand the vibrant colour and beauty of India’s largest state, which stole the show so convincingly in the recent Best Exotic Marigold Hotel films. Fly to Varanasi on the banks of the River Ganges and visit the spot where Buddha first preached and soak up the sights and sounds of Indian river-life with a stunning early morning boat-ride on the Ganges.
Moving to the mountains, you’ll explore ancient, UNESCO protected Khajuraho with its sacred Hindu and Jain monuments and sculptures. An exhilarating train-ride brings you to Agra as part of this Rajasthan special, and there’s a morning visit to remember at the world famous Taj Mahal and impressive Agra Fort.
Capture the colourful charm of the ‘pink’ city of Jaipur with a tour to the magnificent Amber Fort, City Palace and Royal Observatory. A short flight away is Udaipur, the scenic city of lakes where you’ll take a memorable sunset cruise on Lake Pichola offering panoramic views against the scene-stealing backdrop of the Aravalli Hills.
Bustling Mumbai must also feature in any Rajasthan tour package. Home to Bollywood, this vibrant city encapsulates so much of India with its frenetic pace, chic shopping, UNESCO World Heritage sites and Raj-era grandeur. There’s a city tour to take in Delhi’s highlights including a boat-ride across the harbour to the Elephanta Caves and its exotic temple carvings. Colourful Crawford Market and the stately monuments of past colonial days are must-see sights.
Bring history to life as you explore the spectacular sights of Rajasthan – its stunning beauty certainly takes star billing.
