For those of you who are currently enjoying Indian Summers on channel 4 or followed Prince Williams and Kate Middleton's recent Indian tour you might have been inspired to go and see India for yourself as have a Indian Holiday!
India is a vast country and has so much culture to offer in terms of stunning Palaces, Evocative Temples and Historical Forts but there is also a softer side to see with exciting wildlife and wonderful areas of relaxation. To see India in full you need months, but for first time travelers to India we would recommend a 2-3 week trip with a private guide.
If you are looking for something a little bit different, and off the beaten track, then a trip to Transylvania in Romania is for you. Transylvania offers you stunning wilderness, beautiful historical towns, wildlife, a chance to relax in a superb location of a private estate and the opportunity to feel as if you have stepped back in time.
Jordan is a wonderful country to visit. Everyone knows about Petra, and indeed many have it on their “bucket list” of things to do, but there are so many other delights that this country has to offer as well. As Jordan is such a small country it is possible to explore it all in a relatively short time and truly experience all it has to offer
So what are the Top 10 Things to See in Jordan?
Oman is one of the most beautiful and culturally interesting of the Arabian states. Beautiful coastlines meet soaring mountains in a land steeped in history. It is truly a wonderful place to visit.
Iceland is a well trodden path and certainly at first thought is not ”Off the Beaten Track”, however North Iceland is a hidden gem that is often overlooked by those travelling to Iceland.
Oman has so much natural wildlife and dramatic landscape to offer to visitors. However what we didn’t expect was to see both the volume and quality of fossils up in the spectacular peaks of the western Hajjar Mountains at Jabal Akhdhar.
In September 2015 the Al Bustan Palace Hotel in Muscat, Oman is opening a tremendous new Spa for those looking to ease out of the daily stresses . This is not a area that is a "nod towards offering Spa Treatments" but a comprehensive Spa built on 3 levels over 33,000 sq feet. It will offer a huge range of local massages , facials, wellness therapies and body and beauty treatments by expert spa therapists. A wonderful place for a couple of days to relax before setting off to explore Oman.
St Petersburg is a beautiful place to visit in the summer, especially if you visit Peterhoff with its famed fountains , which are only turned on in the summer. We would recommend you visit Peterhoff by hydrofoil on the river - a more enjoyable relaxed way to arrive - and a great way to miss the traffic !
However for three days in June 2015 there is another reason to visit as from 10th until 12th June the Palace Square infront of the world famous Hermitage in St.Petersburg will turn into a huge flower garden. T
