The dry season in India is between November and April, a time that also sees temperatures of over 30°C. It is best to avoid travel between May and October as this is the rain season, with an average rainfall of 1340mm in some months.
India is a vast and richly diverse destination that cannot be experienced fully by visiting just one city, we recommend twinning many of India’s cities to create you own unique journey across the country. Our favourite honeymoon destinations include the gorgeous lakes of Udaipur, the historic city of Jaipur and the relaxed and romantic beach destination of Goa.
The Taj Mahal in India needs very little introduction, and it would be a disservice not to mention this must-see UNESCO World Heritage Site, however if you don’t want to battle the crowds for the perfect shot, we have an excellent alternative.
Set aside one of your evenings for a romantic meal at the Oberoi Amarvilas, and opt for a table on the outdoor terrace. You’ll not only be blessed with an absolutely outstanding meal, but also enchanting views of the Taj Mahal in the near distance soaring above the trees; a truly unique and unforgettable experience
Known affectionately as the ‘Venice of the East’, Udaipur in India dazzles all who visit its enchanting city with its historic colonial buildings and winding lakes.
You could easily spend days wandering the cobbled streets and discovering the city’s tiny cafes, quaint restaurants, sun-washed galleries and hidden palaces, but we really recommend a private boat tour that offers a really unique perspective of the floating city. What could be more relaxing than gently drifting along the waters with a glass of wine and taking in the gorgeous views of Udaipur?
Jaipur is known as the ‘Pink City’ due to its beautiful sun-washed blush pink buildings, and its the perfect destination to visit to get a peek of what India was like before the hand of technology graced it.
Spot old jewellery stores tucked into hidden coves, women dressed in heavily beaded saris and rickshaws as they cruise through the city’s winding streets. Be sure to set aside some time to visit the incredible Amer Fort, the iconic and often photographed Palace of the Winds, and the lavish City Palace.
India is a gold mine of temples, shrines, rice fields and bright colourful festivals, causing those who visit to forget that it's also home to some absolutely beautiful beaches.
Head for the southern coastlines between Mumbai and Goa, and you'll be rewarded with some of the most virgin beaches in the whole of India. These endless golden sands offer the perfect contrast to the bustling cities of the north and offer some relaxation to combat the travel fatigue. These palm-fringed shorelines are often completely deserted and overlook impressive citadels from the 17th and 18th century.
It’s impossible not to feel the presence of religion and spirituality everywhere you visit in India, and with this consistent interconnected culture comes a wealth of fun and exciting festivals.
Diwali is the biggest of them all; held every year between October and November, this is affectionately known as the ‘festival of lights’ because of the clay lamps that light up the country’s streets, houses and temples. Holi is held in March and is India’s most colourful festival, which see’s people taking to the streets to throw rainbow-hued powders over everything and everyone; a photographer’s dream!
