Savour the food and the wine as you spend your days enjoying canoeing, caving, cycling or just lazing around.
Diving holiday in Thailand
Some of the most breathtaking beaches and waters are to be found in Thailand. The colours of the waters are beyond description. Thailand offers especially earmarked spots for scuba diving for its visitors. There are diving tours designed to suit travellers who love to indulge in this. Phi Phi, Koh Samui, and Ao Nang are not to be missed by any diving enthusiast. The mind-boggling variety and colour of fish and underwater foliage can be enjoyed best here. There are informed guides available to help you. The amazing reefs of the Andaman Sea can be seen up close with them.
Travelling through India
Plan your trip to India in the later part of the year when the weather is more forgiving. The variety that this land offers is unparalleled. Take your pick from mountains, deserts, rivers, plains, forests, beaches, mangroves, backwaters and many more. Try the White Sands Festival in the Rann of Kutch in the month of December for a unique experience. One could plan to less-visited pristine states in the North East for their sublime beauty. There is amazing variety of food to be had as well. The sights and sounds of this country offer something new every time.
Machu Picchu in Peru
The remains of the Inca Empire might be in ruins, but the grandeur that they evoke is astounding. Although travelling to this part of the world is not cheap by any means, it will be a trip to remember. There are many different treks on offer to appeal to an array to people, including more spiritually
focused tours and adventures. One of the unusual and lesser known places here is the Huayna Picchu. Spectacular views from atop this place should be enough to push travellers to try and make to the 400 who will be allowed each day. Come here to explore incredible sights and engineering feats of the Incas.
