Bangalore, India (PressExposure) June 03, 2009 -- Luxury trains in India take tourism to the next level. After all, guests coming from all the over world can surely take delight in exploring the country from an altogether new perspective. The various trains in this genre take guests on pleasure holiday, across the various destinations. While some of them have been designed to take guests across north India, some others take guests on a luxury sojourn across the southern part of the country. One of the options that come to mind at the very mention of a luxury train journey in India is that of the Golden Chariot. Not just the name, it actually is a golden chariot that carries its passengers on a trail across the heritages sites of the place, seated atop a luxury chair.
The heritage sites of South India are very different to those found in the other parts of the country. Mostly belonging to the medieval era, these destinations enable one to comprehend the societies and ways of living of the people of those times. These places take one across a fascinating journey and almost transform one to that era. Yes! Some of the most spectacular destinations of Karnataka including Hampi and Bangalore can also be explored onboard this train. However, what is the highlight of this trip is perhaps the blend, the mix of ideas and tastes that have been incorporated in a single journey of this luxury train in India.
With this article let us talk about the essence of all the 3 distinct trips, aboard the Golden Chariot.
Well, firstly the train is a joint venture of the Ministry of Railways and the State Government of Karnataka. Therefore utmost importance has been given to the overall package of the tour, thereby giving equal weight age to the tastes of the heritage, culture, history as well as wildlife lovers. Therefore where on one hand the trips take one across Bangalore and Mysore (heritage sites), it also takes one through the alleys of Kabini and Bandipur (wildlife sites) and also through Hassan and Hampi (culture sites). Moreover, it also takes one to Goa â the Paradise of India, especially for guests looking forward to beach holidays.
Secondly, the 3 trips have been designed in a way to enable guests to explore the first and the last junction of the tour, in a better manner. Therefore while 2 trips begin in Bangalore, one of them begins and ends in Goa. In this way guests can comfortably stay behind in these places and discover the facets that were left behind as a part of the itinerary of the luxury train. Or better still gauge the spirit of the place before embarking on the luxury journey.
Thirdly and importantly, the Golden Chariot offers guests - dining, conferencing as well as recreational facilities in order to offer them a complete package. No wonder, it is increasingly becoming one of the most fondly opted for luxury trains in India.
