Travelling has been an intrinsic part of our lives because the human spirit thrives on a sense of discovery. It is thrilling to arrive at a new destination, to experience the sights and sounds of people, cultures, cities and civilisations. Travelling, to a large extent, forms the core of the global citizen.
It does go without saying that there is only one way to travel – absolutely first class. That is the reason why this edition of Millionaireasia India is dedicated to travel and luxury, a compelling combination that has no downside.
When it comes to the twin concepts of travel and luxury, there is no one that understands it better than Nakul Anand. The Executive Director of ITC Hotels, Nakul has been at the forefront of the corporate giant’s hospitality vertical, spearheading it with great success and ushering in an age of Responsible Luxury which has made ITC Hotels the ‘Greenest Luxury Hotel Chain in the World’.
In an exclusive interview with Millionaireasia, Nakul shares his point of view on the growth of India’s hospitality sector and on creating luxury value propositions within the country. He describes India as “probably one of the best markets in the world right now.”
Destinations are the of this edition and we bring you everything, from picture perfect vistas to the luxury shopping capitals of the world. The glittering splendour of some of the most expensive retail avenues around the globe are an opulent counterpoint to extraordinarily gorgeous natural phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis. Together, they bookend the theme of Travel and Luxury seamlessly.
There is a school of thought which believes that nothing beats the experience of heading out on an open highway. It is absolutely true and if you happen to do it in the spanking new Jeep, the thrill gets multiplied many times over. Riaan Jacob George road tests the ride for us and recommends it highly.
We are now right in the middle of the season of festivities. There is no time like right now to step out and discover new destinations, new horizons and a brand new you. Stay wealthy, stay happy.
