"With its wild desert scenery, ancient sandcastle forts, pastel-coloured cities [and] dust-speckled light... India's largest state is sure to induce a bout of wanderlust", says The Independent.

Itinerary
The trip starts with two nights at The Claridges and sightseeing, including a rickshaw experience, in New Delhi. Next, you'll head to Agra for a night at Oberoi Amarvilas -- a Moorish-Mogul hotel with "stunning unobstructed views of the Taj Mahal", according to Condé Nast Traveller.

From there, you'll head to Jaipur to explore the blush-coloured buildings of India's Pink City, followed by Bikaner, Jaisalmer and Jodhpur. Excursions include an elephant ride and a light-and-sound show at Amber Fort (a TripAdvisor's Travellers' Choice Winner 2013), a camel ride across the sand dunes and a visit to Jaisalmer's living fort.

The next stop is Udaipur. Built in 1746 and featured in the James Bond film "Octopussy", the Taj Lake Palace is "a real-life jewel" set on a 4-acre island that "appears to float on the shimmering surface" of Pichola Lake, says Condé Nast Traveller. Guests arrive at the hotel via private boat before being taken to ornately decorated rooms. The property is one of The Leading Hotels of the World and features on Condé Nast Traveller's Gold List 2014.

You'll then fly to Mumbai for one night at the The Taj Mahal Palace -- the "crowning glory of the city's hotel scene," says Frommer's -- before flying home.
