Family Travel & Adventure
For a family holiday that remains with you forever, and real experiences that will be spoken about and shared for years, these stunning countries – India, Sri Lanka, Burma and Bhutan – have an abundance of gifts to offer.
Immerse yourselves in authentic local life and culture. See everything come to life – temples and monuments, local people and traditional costume, old British hill stations and colonial buildings; wildlife safaris and whale watching; glorious sunny beaches with warm, clear waters.
Enjoy gentle walks in the verdant hills and rolling tea gardens – or more strenuous treks in the foothills of the Himalaya. There is river rafting and paragliding; a variety of watersports to choose from.
See how spices and exotic fruit and vegetables grow in the fields, and the beautiful displays in the local markets. After visits to fish and vegetable markets learn to cook real curries with freshly picked spices and try new tastes and flavours.
Discover your sense of adventure and occasion. Enjoy the spectacle of the many festivals and celebrations in each of these countries – Diwali in India; the Kandy Perahera, honouring the sacred tooth relic, in Sri Lanka; the joy and exuberance of the water festival at Thingyan in Burma, or masked dances and drama of a Tsechu in Bhutan.
Try out different modes of transport – from traditional riverboats and trains, to rickshaws and bicycles; camel, horse and elephants safaris.
Choose memorable places to stay – majestic forts and palaces, jungle lodges and tented camps, homestays and village houses, as well as beach resorts and stunning heritage and boutique hotels.
We have always believed that travel to our destinations should be a richly rewarding experience both for you and the people within them.
