So happy, re our Xmas India trip just booked flights Manchester – Chennai (India) Quatar 470 pounds return via budgetair.co.uk
We do love a deal!

Now that autumn is approaching we are beginning to get really excited about our Christmas / New Year Mystical South India holiday in Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Our location experience here is second to none, we are proud to say that many parts of this journey are totally unique! We’ll be travelling to some of Southern India’s photographically most stunning, spiritual and historical landmarks which will give us the opportunity to practise travel photography whilst exploring some fine locations offering access to a wealth of spectacular, photographic opportunities across a wide range of subjects and natural environments; there will surely be something here for everyone at what ever level.

We have chosen our accommodation carefully, knowing that during the festive period, photographers often like to bring partners along. We will enjoy some unique hotels and locations including, Pondicherry on the Coromandel coast, a restored, attractive, former French colony, exuding a Mediterranean aura with its chic streets, the relaxing Sparsha Eco Resort in Tiruvanamalai for Christmas day, New Years Eve at the inspiring Blackberry Hill Resort in the Cardamom Hills Munnar, a night of sheer luxury at the elegant Heritage Madurai, a fascinating train journey, a final two nights at the delightfully secluded and personal Secret garden, Cochin, plus much more. The diversity of India is a true assault on the senses, a vibrant and sometimes shocking experience. At times it may seem overwhelming but it has left us longing to return again and again: we’re well and truly addicted, see you there!
