  • Mr and Mrs Wood visited India for the first time this year. They chose this fascinating country as they had a specific interest in architecture and culture. They flew into Delhi and their destination highlights included touring around Delhi, Agra and Classic Rajasthan, which included Mandawa, Gajner, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Pushkar and Jaipur, which they covered over an incredible 3 weeks.

    1.  Was this your first time visiting India? What made you decide to visit?

    This was our first time visiting India and we were particularly interested in all the architecture and culture.

    2.  What was on your itinerary?

    We visited as many sites as possible, concentrating on lots of places in Rajasthan and ‘The Golden Triangle.’

    3.  Where did you stay whilst on your trip and what was your favourite property?

    We stayed at a wide variety of hotels in India, our favourites being the Gajner Palace, a lakeside palace complex adjacent to a sanctuary, in the middle of the Thar Desert, and the Raas Devigarh, a boutique 5 star hotel in Devigarh, Udaipur.

    4.    What were your highlights from your trip?

    The Taj Mahal

    The highlight for us was the Taj Mahal in Agra. It was so much better than expected even though it was really busy.

    5.   Do you have any advice or tips for anyone thinking of going to India?

    I would advise people to carry plenty of low denomination notes for tips and say hello to everyone. Use plenty of sun cream and carry a light scarf for visiting temples. Drink lots and lots of bottled water.
