Journeys : Oct Nov 2012
One of the joys of travelling is discovering something new – and there is possibly nowhere better in the world than India to do just that. Around every corner there are sights, sounds and smells to surpr ise and delight. Whether it be an open-air barber happily lathering his customer’s beard on the footpath, or a cow resting inside a tailor shop amongst ladies shopping for saris, each day of a visit brings a new experience. Dan Nebauer, director of InterAsia, a travel company specialising in Asia since 1989, regularly travels to India and he never ceases to be ama zed by the sheer energy of the place. Some of Dan’s best memor ies include quite backwater cruises, vast desert and mountain vistas, seemingly impregnable forts, the excitement of capturing a photo of the elusive tiger in a wildlife sanctuary, floating candles at dawn on the holy river Ganges in Varanassi, amazing hotels, often converted heritage palaces (the right hotel choice in India does more to enhance your travel experience than any other part of the world in Dan’s view), trading for colourful handmade carpets in a remote village – and perhaps most of all, the interactions with the charming people of this great country. To get you to India, InterAsia has a range of tour options, from grand escorted group tours to small private journeys, and from soft adventure to super luxur y. Much thought and planning goes into the creation of the tours. Only hotels with a proven track record are used. Regular inspections and feedback from clients and local operators are the keys to making sure only the best-quality hotels and services in their pr ice categor y are featured in the tour programs.
