December 26 - January 2

Mumbai

Your adventures begin in Mumbai.

Previously known as Bombay, this thriving metropolis is located on India’s west coast and is the country’s largest city.

Mumbai is known as the financial center of India, as well as the fashion and entertainment capital of India, with its great and fruitful film industry – Bollywood.

It is a city of dreamers and of harsh juxtapositions, because while some of the most expensive houses in the world can be seen throughout the streets of Mumbai, so can the world’s largest slum.

It is a place for all, a place where you can find anything and be anyone. Mumbai is a melting pot of cultures and customs, because of its long tradition of welcoming people of all faiths to live together in peace.

In Mumbai you can stumble upon some of the world’s most beautiful and grand colonial architecture and then walk into a noisy market with vendors selling all the spices and vegetables imaginable. You can take the next turn on a street and find yourself in a young hipster café. With great cuisine and a radiant nightlife, Mumbai truly has it all.

Mumbai has a chaotic yet beautiful energy that is hard to match. It may seem like an intimidating place, but it has some of the country’s friendliest people, ready and willing to help you out.

Along with Delhi and Jaipur, Agra forms the Golden Triangle of tourism in India. From Akbar’s Tomb to Agra Fort and the walled city of Fatehpur Sikri, Agra is home to some important monuments that tell the story of India’s history.

Jaipur

Next up: mystical Jaipur.

The capital of Rajasthan, India’s most flamboyant state, Jaipur is often called the “Pink City” because of the distinct and beautiful color of its buildings. The buildings were actually painted a long time ago in order to imitate the red sandstone color of ancient Mughal architecture. Jaipur was India’s first planned city and was established in 1727.

It is a vibrant, colorful and chaotic city with constant juxtapositions of the old and the new. This versatile pink royal metropolis has a little something for everyone.

Jaipur’s past offers an oasis of calm within the seas of chaos. Stepping into the magnificent heritage, culture and architecture transports you to an entirely different world. The city is filled with stunning fortresses, beautiful lush gardens and palaces, and peaceful temples. Furthermore, Jaipur is also famous for its artisanship, particularly its handicrafts and jewelry, making it a city with extraordinary bazaars.

Dera Amer Wilderness Camp

Before departing for your next destination, enjoy an incredibly special overnight at Dera Amer Wilderness Camp.

This enchanting property is but a short drive from Jaipur, yet feels worlds away. Tucked into the foothills of the Aravali Range, and surrounded by the wilderness of a reserved forest, Dera Amer offers a peace and tranquility hard to come by in this day and age.

Years ago, the Singh family, who themselves reside in the area, converted their 160 acre land into a protected wilderness camp. Given their love of nature, wildlife and animals, they have resisted the temptation for several real estate development options, and instead chosen to protect the wilderness and their adopted animals.

Here, elephants, camels, horses and cows are closest to their natural habitat and tread on soft ground. The large agricultural fields provide the food for the animals, as well as much needed exercise in a healthy environment.

Enjoy the opportunity to come close to these magnificent creatures in a setting unique to this planet.

Udaipur

Continue on to Udaipur, a beautiful city, set amidst the Aravalli Ranges.

Often referred to as the 'Venice of the East,' Udaipur, the city of lakes, is located around azure waters and is hemmed in by the lush green hills of Aravallis. Udaipur is also home to multiple ornate palaces, making this one of the most photogenic regions in the country. The architectural beauty and grandeur of the city create a romantic atmosphere, and is a stark contrast to many of the country’s whirlwind cities.

Udaipur has been the backdrop for many famous movies, and it’s clear to see why - the pristine countryside, imposing monuments, and lively city markets selling colorful goods of all kinds come together to create a setting like none other. This destination truly is one-of-a-kind.

Jodhpur

Next, head on to Jodhpur, Rajasthan's second largest city, and a true gem. Aptly named the "Blue City," this stunning destination is certainly a site to behold.

Peppered with forts and temples, palaces and havelies, all intricately decorated and all covered in a shimmering blue, Johdpur could have been plucked straight out of a fairytale.

Enjoy an enchanting stroll through the snaking, blue streets, or get out of the city and explore the fascinating surrounding desert land. After a long day of exploring, head to one of the city's many terraces to take in the fabulous sunset with a drink in hand, and finish the night off with a delectable local dinner.

The issue won't be finding things to do, but rather fitting them all in.

Jaisalmer

Finally, end your trip in mesmerizing Jaisalmer.

Slightly off the normal, Rajasthan visitor's path, Jaisalmer sits perched right next to the border between India and Pakistan. This magnificent city is considered the gateway to the desert, offering visitors a unique landscape and experience.

Home to various impressive temples and architectural wonders, situated around a stunning lake oasis, and but a short drive from sandy dunes that stretch as far as the eye can see, Jaisalmer is a definite must-see.

Come and let the City of Gold amaze you!
