INDIA

A country so full of paradoxes and contrasts that it guarantees to madden anyone who tries to understand it, the best way to enjoy India is to simply soak up what is surely the greatest show on earth.

VIETNAM

Shaped like an elongated ‘S’, Vietnam stretches along the east coast of the Indochinese Peninsula. A local metaphor likens it to a long bamboo pole hung with two baskets of rice, represented by the two fertile regions at either end of the country. The lush Red River Delta and the highlands in the north, known for their magnificent scenery and colourful hill tribes, complement the agricultural plains and floating markets of the Mekong Delta in the south perfectly.

The impact of Japanese and Chinese trade, French occupation and American intervention has had on obvious influence on Vietnam. These influences are readily apparent in the vivid legacy from different cultures evident in the character of its towns, as well as in the architecture and food. The quaint town of Hoi An, once a major trading port, boasts the perfectly preserved architectural influences of the Asian merchants from the north, while the broad leafy boulevards of the capital Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City are reminiscent of France.

DAY 01- ARRIVE DELHI (BY FLIGHT)
Meeting and assistance on arrival and transfer to hotel.

India’s capital city, Delhi, is a unique and fascinating blend of two very different cities, each with its own distinctive flavour and character. No visit to India is complete without visiting these two complementary halves of its capital city – Delhi, both Old and New.

Old Delhi, the former walled city, is home to some of the city’s most iconic monuments, the Red Fort and the Jama Masjid. The streets of Old Delhi are crowded, bursting at the seams with people, tiny shops, rickshaws, and ever more people. The city’s bazaars are a treasure-trove of everything you could possibly want – and lots you didn’t know you wanted. New Delhi, the seat of government and diplomacy, and the showcase of modern-day India, moves to a different rhythm. Wide, tree-lined avenues, laid out as part of the Luyten’s master plan in the early 20th century give New Delhi a sense of space.
Overnight at hotel.

DAY 02- DELHI
Morning proceed for Combined City Tour of Delhi.

New Delhi: Visit Qutab Minar, the tallest stone tower in India , built by Qutub-ud-din Aibek of the Slave Dynasty; India Gate – A War Memorial Arch.

Old Delhi : Visit Raj Ghat and Shanti Vana – the cremation sites of Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru, Jama Masjid, one of the largest mosques in India; RAJ GHAT- the memorial of Mahatma Gandhi and Drive past Red Fort and Chandni Chowk.
Overnight at hotel.

DAY 03- DELHI-AGRA (BY SURFACE APPROX 4 HRS)

Agra, about 200 km south of Delhi, is home to the Taj Mahal, probably the country’s best known monument. This ultimate tribute to love is situated on the banks of the River Yamuna. The city also has an impressive Fort.

Afternoon sightseeing tour of the Taj Mahal & Fort. Visit the world famous Taj Mahal built by Shah Jahan in 1560 in memory of his queen Mumtaz Mahal to enshrine her mortal remains. This architectural marvel is a perfectly proportioned masterpiece fashioned from white marble that stands testimony to the skill of 20,000 craftsmen brought together from Persia, Turkey, France and Italy and who took 17 years to complete this ‘Love Poem in Marble’. (FRIDAY CLOSED). Later visit the Agra fort containing the halls of private & public audiences & other palaces. Shah Jahan spent here years of confinement at the hands of his son Aurangzeb, looking wistfully at the Taj Mahal from the Fort. Overnight at Hotel.

On arrival check-in at Hotel. Rest of the day at leisure.

Jaipur is a city of history and tradition, dating back to its foundation in the 17th century by Sawai Jai Singh, from whom it derives its name. Jai Sing meticulously planned the civic layout of Jaipur, with wide roads and impressive architecture, all of which is painted pink to this day. Jaipur is almost equidistant from Delhi and Agra, and forms part of the famed Golden Triangle, which so many visitors to north India take.
Overnight at Hotel.
