Northern India

India

What do you love most about Northern India?

"From deserts and mountain ranges to ancient forts and step wells - Northern India is incredibly diverse. "

A 'MUST' whilst you're there?

"The ancient monuments are wonders of architecture and colour. You'll feel like you're in Asia, the Middle East and even Europe at times. "

Favourite time of year to visit Northern India

"Winter! During summer temperatures get very high so winter (Nov - Feb) is much more comfortable. But don't worry! You'll still enjoy sunny hot weather, it just won't be unbearable. "

@lizaliddy's Top Tips

"Don't be afraid to get amongst it! India is so fun and energetic. There's always a lot going on - which can be overwhelming. But if you're open to it, it can be a really cool experience. "

Benefits of a tour guide for Northern India

"Finding hidden little gems, like the Bahubali Hills in Udaipur. An insider's guide is the best help when it comes to unique experiences and (most importantly) yummy food!"

Must pack items for Northern India

Angkor Wat

Cambodia

What do you love most about Angkor Wat?

"You'll feel mesmerised by the ancient designs and each temple has a unique story. I loved exploring the forests to get to each temple. It felt like an adventure on its own. "

Benefits of a tour guide for Angkor Wat

@tiffanyswindow's Top Tips

"Spend at least 2 days exploring! If you're not on a tour, rent a motorbike and have the freedom to explore on your own. Be careful with your money, as they don't accept any torn or ripped cash."

Where can you get tickets if you're not on a tour?

"You can purchase at the Angkor pass ticket counters. Book it a day before, have it delivered to your hotel and skip the line! Or, book online on the Angkor Enterprise website and show your ticket."

Are there restaurants nearby?

"You'll find shops at every temple, if not, then nearby. They sell drinks or snacks, and clothing (traditional clothes for photos). There is a place at Angkor Wat for sit-down food and drinks."
