Expand your boundaries and embrace India’s passion with a holiday
Unless you’re an avid cricket fan, you’ll probably be surprised to know it’s the world’s second most popular sport, with some 2.5 billion followers across the globe.
However, few can deny the passion for the game is greatest in India. And if you’d like to immerse yourself in cricketing culture, we believe Corinthian Travel’s “Bowled over in India” holiday will be a big hit.
This ten-day trip opens in Delhi where you’ll have a session with one of Indian captain Virat Kohli’s coaches before watching Delhi Daredevils start their Indian Premier League season against Gujarat Lions. The trip’s middle order will be a slight change of pace as you hop on the fast train to Agra, home of the Taj Mahal, before having a few days in Jaipur, the “Pink City”. Among the highlights here will be a visit to a royal palace and the chance for a run out with local kids in a game of street cricket.
The tail-end of your voyage will take you to Mumbai where you’ll watch future stars play at the Oval Maidan before watching the Mumbai Indians in another IPL clash. Can you think of many better sporting sojourns? Well we’re stumped. From Dhs8,350 (international flights extra). April 5-14. www.corinthiantravel.co.uk.
