With the endless variety of the Indian Subcontinent to explore, your honeymoon to India or Sri Lanka can be as romantic, as vivid and colourful, or as languidly luxurious as you like.

You could start at the Taj Mahal at sunrise. One of the world’s most romantic buildings; this glistening palace of white marble was created by a mighty Mughal emperor in honour of his wife and is now recognised as one of wonders of the world. Or you could wander around the forts and palaces of Rajasthan, or stare open-mouthed at fantastical carvings of gods and goddesses. You could trek after tigers through dense jungle, aboard an elephant. Or visit Sri Lanka to experience huge street festivals and the spiritual Temple of the Tooth. Then you might choose to follow in the footsteps of the British settlers, and retire from the heat of the plains to drink in cool mountain air. Being pampered on a colonial-style tea plantation could be the highlight of your honeymoon to India.
