Real Living (Australia) - - CONTENTS -

Take a trip to one of the world’s most in­tox­i­cat­ing coun­tries and you’ll come away with a wealth of pow­er­ful ex­pe­ri­ences and life­long mem­o­ries

A BEAU­TI­FUL CON­TRAST BE­TWEEN CHAOS AND CALM is what you’ll find as you weave your way through In­dia. A re­lent­less ca­coph­ony of beep­ing car horns, over­whelm­ing flashes of vi­brant colour and mix of in­tox­i­cat­ing smells (both good and not so good) are matched with a friendly smile and gen­er­ous of­fer of as­sis­tance at ev­ery twist and turn. But with so many en­chant­ing and un­ex­pected things wait­ing to be dis­cov­ered around ev­ery cor­ner, where do you start? Maybe it’s the heav­ing spice mar­kets in Old Delhi, Agra’s breath­tak­ing tombs and forts, a tran­quil boat trip along the holy Ganges river in Varanasi or a mag­i­cal lake palace in Udaipur. Read on for our in­sider’s guide to the best places to stay and eat, and the top things to see and do in five must-visit cities, plus help­ful tips you should know be­fore you go.

Sim­ply serene For un­in­ter­rupted views of the ma­jes­tic Taj Ma­hal and Ya­muna River, head to Me­htab Bagh gar­den – it’s not as well known, so you’ll have less tourists in your shot.
