India is a place that I never thought I will like let alone visiting so when I start telling my friends & family that I am going India for holiday. Everyone thought I was crazy like; why would I go India? That is the kind of mentality that most people have. Needless to say, I absolutely fell in love with this gorgeous place. I was really taken away by the beauty of India. Ravishing India holidays has not only provided us with the super comfortable tours & hotels, they also provide the best concierge services for us. It’s all gals trip for us, 3 adults & 1 little boy. We enjoyed ourselves so much during this trip! Is truly one of the best trip I have taken! Our road trip start when we were in Delhi, the concierge drove the 4 of us from Delhi to Ranthambore. We packed loads of titbits with us during the road trip & was happily enjoying the scenery as RK, our super guide cum driver drove us.
When we get into Ranthambore, we were greeted & given warm welcome by the luxury chain hotel, Oberoi Vanyavilas. Truly super luxury glamorous tent from room down to the staffs, super attentive services provided by Oberoi. Ranthambore is notably known for one of the largest national park in northern India. The wildlife sanctuary is known for its tigers & is one of the best places in India to see these animals in their natural jungle habitat. We were led by RK, the super experienced naturalist to the safari for tigers chasing. We chase the tigers & other wild animals to take pictures, enjoyed the beautiful landscape of the park. The views to the landscape in ranthambore makes you forget about the chaos in urban living. Safari never been more fun than these. We enjoyed the safari so much that every morning at 4.30am sharp, we will leap out of the bed to get ready for the safari. It’s truly the highlight & unforgettable of this trip for us.
From Ranthambore to Jaipur took about 3 hours’ drive. We stayed in another luxurious hotel, Fairmont Jaipur. We were there for some shopping & the highlight of this is the hot air balloon ride we took in Jaipur. We were really lucky the weather was good for take-off. Fantastic & breath-taking view as they blend beautifully with the historical Forts & hidden palaces nestled amongst the Aravalli Ranges. Captured the privileged view of traditional Rajasthani villages & the smiles of friendly people looking up at you when the balloon went passed. It was indeed a well worth to experience this!
We took a 6 hours’ road trip from Jaipur to Udaipur, this time round we blended in so well together with RK. We completely went insane during the road trip! RK blast the music, we sing along Hindi songs (even although we have no idea how to sing), dance with the catchy beats, making so much noise during the drive. It is truly a precious memory that I will never forget.
Udaipur, Venice of the East acclaimed as the most romantic & heritage city in the world, is settled in the state of Rajasthan in India. It is known for its history, culture, scenic location & the Rajput-era palaces. We stayed in the Taj Lake Palace, the most romantic hotel in India. Our stay was very pleasant & memorable. The staffs, amenities, food, entertainments were all amazing. RIH arranged for us to take the vintage car ride around the city. It was absolutely awesome. The stroll around the city was just as good as we visited other palaces, restaurants, shops, bazaars or soaking ourselves in the scenic gorgeous views with cool breeze.
On the whole, this trip to India have gone beyond my expectations. The mind-blowing landscapes, foods, palaces, the wonderful luxurious hotels stay, etc. We are all very teary when it’s time to say goodbye to RK, our beloved naturalist cum guide cum driver cum bodyguard cum DJ. You won’t want to leave, but when you do, you’ll have so much to remember & you can’t wait till go back there again! It’s been a week since I’m back from India but I have been keep thinking about the places, the fun, the laughter, the bonds & the memories we shared during our time there. It’s truly an incredible charming magical place you’ll want to visit over & over again. Having to say this, I have already booked my next trip with RIH.
