India Overview

If you're dreaming of a honeymoon where each day is a voyage of discovery then India could be the perfect location for you. With a myriad of ancient historical sites to visit, exotic wildlife to view, mountains to trek, gorgeous beaches to lounge on, markets and bazaars to ogle, tribal villages to visit, and deserts to cross, the hardest bit is where to start first.

With so many different regions to visit a honeymoon in India can be many different things. Regular flights from South Africa mean that you can be exploring this amazing part of the world in under 24 hours. Explore the 'golden triangle' which is full of stunning attractions, including the iconic Taj Mahal, the Amber Fort and the palace of the winds otherwise known as the Hawa Mahal. Visit the romantic city of Udaipur in Rajasthan, (it is your honeymoon after all) which is famous for its awe inspiring Lake Palace Hotel and also known as the 'Venice of the East'. The area also includes other fairytale forts and castles. Go snorkelling in the Andaman Islands, in the Bay of Bengal or take a trip to Mumbai where new meets old, and sky scrapers jostle for space amongst ram shackle bazaars and frantic street life. It's also the home of the film industry, known as Bollywood. With such a choice of things to do, you'll want to come back for more.
