Cochin/India, 4.00 – 17.00 hrs

Take a relaxed stroll along winding alleyways and through the local spice market. Alternatively, take a ride in a tuk-tuk* and gain insights into Indian cuisine*. It is worth taking a detour to the backwaters of Alleppey*, a labyrinth of lagoons, or Fort Cochin*, where you can see the huge wooden structures of the famous Chinese fishing nets. Alternatively, set off on a several-day overland excursion* to Delhi and the Taj Mahal (with re-embarkation in Mumbai).

Fri, 12.05.2017

Agatti/Lakkadives/India , 8.30 – 18.00 hrs

A unique lagoon with crystal-clear water, thousands of sea turtles and an underwater habitat considered by those in the know to be the most beautiful in the world. Just one question remains: would you rather snorkel or relax?

Sat, 13.05.2017

Relaxation at sea

Sun, 14.05.2017

Mumbai (Bombay)/India, 6.00 – 18.00 hrs

A world in itself, full of contrasts like Bollywood charm and sacred, fortune-bringing cows on the streets, steaming roadside food stalls and luxury hotels, and haggling sellers and colourful Hindu gods. You can decide how you want to explore this megacity – for instance, on a discovery tour* or on the excursion “Mumbai experience – the many faces of the metropolis”*. Enjoy peace and relaxation over tea at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel* or at a yoga class*.

OUR TIP:

Action!
Do the same as the cinephile Indians: go to the cinema. Even if you have no knowledge of the language, a Bollywood romance is easy to follow.
