In this two-week privately guided holiday you’ll experience the southern state of Tamil Nadu only with its deep-rooted religious beliefs, incredible temple sites, remote plantations and the coastal regions of Pondicherry and Mahabalipuram.
You’ll move every couple of nights and travel by train, plane and your own private car; so this trip is designed for the more active traveller who likes to keep the trip varied, but balanced. Three days at the end of the trip give you some down time on the beach.
- Hunting for antiques with your guide in Chettinad, where you feel like you’ve stepped back in time
- Reading a book on the terrace of your home-away-from-home hotel in Rajakkad
- Watching the evening puja ceremony with pilgrims at Sri Meenakshi temple
- Walking around the white town area of Pondicherry with your local guide
