India
From the palm fringed beaches of Kerala to the mighty Rajasthani forts and
ancient temples,
India
is a melting pot of intriguing attractions. Its abundant
beauty makes
India
a terrific destination for a fun-filled group holiday with
friends, or to celebrate a special occasion with loved ones. With a variety of

can be troublesome, even for the
most organised traveller! Without reaching for the guidebook luxury group

Situated in the northern state of Rajasthan, the Golden Triangle is one of the
most fascinating areas in
India
. Boasting some of
India's
greatest cities,
Delhi
,
Agra and Jaipur, the Golden Triangle explores
India's
cultural relics and
imperialistic past. Marvel at Rajpath in
Delhi
, reminiscent of the Arc de
Triomphe in
Paris
and admire the exquisite beauty of the Taj Mahal in Agra, one
of
India's
most iconic buildings. Built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in 1632 in
memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal, the white marbled mausoleum was
constructed as a symbol of his everlasting love
[1]
. West of Agra lays Jaipur;
nicknamed the 'pink city', which was painted pink in 1853 to welcome the
Prince of Wales
[2]
. From Jaipur head to the ancient Amber Fort, the former
home for Rajput royalty. Don't forget to visit the City Palace with its range of
ancient royal costumes and Indian weapons
[3]
. For shopaholics, Jaipur has a
multitude of bazaars and boutiques to purchase gorgeous gifts for family and
friends back home.
If cultural relics, monuments and cities leave you exhausted, a tour to Kerala in
southern
India
might be the perfect way to recharge your batteries. Stretched
along the coastline of Arabian Sea, the state of Kerala is a tropical paradise
with its luscious landscapes and Kochi backwaters. The Western Ghats to
Thekkady boasts a variety of tea gardens, rubber estates and coffee and
pepper plantations. Visit a spice garden to see how some of the exotic spices
are grown or take a romantic boat trip along Lake Vembanad at sunset. While
away the holiday sipping cocktails, eating delicious dosas and sunbathing at the
picture perfect Kovalam beach.

NOTE TO EDITORS:
Cox & Kings is the world's longest established travel company. Its history
stretches back more than 250 years to 1758 when Richard Cox was appointed
regimental agent to the Footguards (later the Grenadier Guards). The
company's fortunes grew hand in hand with the British Empire and by the early
20
th
century the company was acting as agent and banker throughout the
armed forces and as a shipping agent. In 1922 Cox & Co merged with the
Henry S King bank, which had strong connections with
India
. The bank became
part of Lloyds and the shipping agency grew separately, evolving into the
modern travel company.
