The Golden Triangle – India

I was lucky to be invited on a fantastic trip to India last September with If Only Holidays.

Seeing the Taj Mahal has to be one of the most memorable times of my life and somewhere that was on my “bucket list “

8 DAY, 7 NIGHT TOUR from £1615 per person

The ‘Golden Triangle’ – Delhi, Agra and Jaipur – encompasses the perfect combination of sights for the first time India visitor, or indeed the repeat visitor who hasn’t had an opportunity to experience some of these incredible places.

The journey begins with India’s vast capital, Delhi, which is made up of the ‘old city’ with its bustling markets and stunning Mughal architecture, and New Delhi with wide tree lined avenues, beautiful gardens, and imposing buildings designed by renowned British architect Edwin Lutyens.

Moving on, you visit Agra to experience the timeless beauty of the Taj Mahal, and on to Jaipur, also known as the ‘Pink City’. Jaipur is the capital of the desert state of Rajasthan, dotted with forts and palaces, many still home to maharajas, and is home to the elaborate City Palace with its museum brimming with historic memorabilia, an ancient observatory and the hilltop fort of Amber.

The Travel Architect arrives in India

This is my first visit to India and I am part of a group of 8 travel consultants taking in the sights and sounds of the Golden Triangle Tour with If Only Holidays.

After an 8 hour flight with British Airways in club world we arrived at Delhi airport. A swift meet and greet service and we were soon on our way to the beautiful Leela Palace Hotel in New Delhi courtesy of Trans World Experiences. We are privileged to have Vivek Angra, the UK President from TWX travelling with us on our trip taking care of all our ground arrangements.

The Leela Palace Hotel was built 3 years ago on the most expensive piece of real estate in the world. This is the first time I gave stayed in a Leela property and the level of service and attention to detail in the hotel is outstanding.

There is a beautiful temperature controlled rooftop pool where you can chill out and relax after sightseeing or shopping to recharge your batteries.
