The location

India is located in South Asia and is the seventh-largest country by area. India is a sightseer’s dream, with world-famous buildings such as the Taj Mahal — a testimony to the power of love. Other architecture of significant beauty and wonder include: The Golden Temple of Amritsar, The Golden City, The Red Fort, Agra Fort, Amer Fort, Mysore Palace and The Ellora Caves. For those historians out there, take a trip to the holy city of Varanasi, dating back to the 8th century BC. Varanasi is one of the oldest still inhabited cities in the world. For those more nature driven travellers, Periyar National Park and Wildlife Sanctuary will suit you perfectly. Home to tigers and a significant elephant population, you will truly be in the presence of one of the world’s most majestic parks. Tigers and elephants a bit too much for you? Fancy something more relaxing? The beaches of Goa, stretching more than 60 miles, are some of the most elegant and alluring the world has to offer. Do I have to explain the cuisine?
