It’s a cliché, but India really is a feast for the senses: brightly coloured saris, spicy curries, fragrant teas and city streets packed with everything from cars to cows. Head to Rajasthan for ornate palaces, tiger-spotting safaris and the Taj Mahal, or venture to southern India for beaches and backwaters.
Alternatively, you can travel to Sri Lanka – this teardrop-shaped island is home to rock-carved temples, rare leopards and hilly tea plantations. Or travel to Nepal, a country of dramatic scenery, Buddhist shrines, gold-tipped stupas and quiet mountain villages.
