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 private car; we designed this trip for more active travellers who likes to keep the holiday varied, but balanced. Three days towards the end will give you some downtime 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
As with all of our suggested itineraries, we can tailor-make your holiday to suit your budget, style and expectations. Find out about our exclusive ‘Journey Planner’ here.
