Coorg, known now as Kodagu, is one of the most popular hill station destinations in India has rich wildlife, rolling green moors, and flourishing agro-forestry, especially coffee plantations.
If you are heading south, go straight to Kerala, where the golden beaches, the rippling sea waves, the romantic backwaters transport you to a world of peace, bliss and relaxation.
Any mention of Jodhpur makes you think of the magnificent Umaid Bhawan Palace that regularly hosts the leading celebrities of the world for the most ostentatious and elaborate social functions. But Jodhpur is much more than that. You can’t miss the imposing Mehrangarh Fort, which sprawls over 5 km on a perpendicular hill. Take a quick tour of Jodhpur here before booking your tickets.
Made from yellow sand and yellow sandstone that sparkle in the sun, the intricately sculpted fort palace and temples are known for their golden tinge. Satyajit Ray’s award winning film Sonar Kella (The Golden Fortress) brought this Golden City’s amazing fort palace into international attention.
The romantic Lake Palace surrounded by the rippling, clear waters and rolling hills is a photographer’s delight. Udaipur has the best hotels of the world here vying for your attention, with absolutely heart-warming hospitality. But the Lake Palace, with its charming aristocratic ambience and impeccable service takes the cake.
The colourful, vibrant Christmas carnival of Goa is famous around the world. The festive spirit is infectious, if you are there you are part of the celebrations. Goa is one of the best places to go in Christmas holidays in India.
