Australia’s Asia travel specialist, Travel Indochina, has released its ‘2013-14 India, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and Maldives’ brochure with a range of new itineraries, amid strong sales results to the sub continent.

TIN2688_HMH_INDIA_COVER_LRAccording to Travel Indochina’s Managing Director, Paul Hole, sales to India have remained buoyant following solid growth in 2011-12, with a year on year increase of almost 30% on Small Group Journeys and over 40% growth in FIT sales this year.

“We’re very pleased with the sustained growth we’ve seen to India,” said Paul.

“Sri Lanka has also experienced dramatic growth off last year’s base, with a fivefold increase in Small Group Journey sales and a doubling of FIT.

“India and Sri Lanka are capturing travellers’ imaginations. Being such ‘feasts for the senses’, our Small Group Journeys and expert assistance in designing tailored itineraries to make the most of these destinations is proving popular, and has led us to expand our offering.”

The new 52 page brochure features four new India itineraries including Travel Indochina’s first ever Kashmir route, a range of enhanced 7 to 15 day itineraries for Sri Lanka, as well as a number of new hotels and an expanded hotel image format to help with accommodation selection.

Brochure highlights for India include:

A double page of Golden Triangle touring options, including a 8 day/7 night ‘Golden Triangle Fort Experience’ from $1149* which now offers the unique experience of a stay in a secluded, luxurious Rajasthan fort, the fort of Ramathra;

Travel Indochina’s first ever Kashmir Houseboats & Himalayas itinerary, which includes a 3 night stay on one of the famed houseboat of Nageen Lake in the Himalayan valley, walking through the historic city of Srinagar and a drive into the magnificent mountains and highlands, from $732*;

A new 5 day/4 night adventurous Itmenaan Himalayas & Villages tour in the Himalayas north of Delhi, staying in beautifully-renovated stone houses, walking from village to village, enjoying spectacular mountain vistas and dining on superb local produce, from $1175*; and

A new 4 day/3 night itinerary from $827* based at a charming eco lodge ‘Sarai At Toria’ on the banks of the beautiful Ken River (bordering Panna National Park), with activities that include taking a dawn boat ride in search of otters and eagle owls, a safari into Panna in search of tigers and other wildlife, and a visit to the temple of Khajuraho, famed for its erotic sculptures.

East coast extensions have also been added to several Sri Lanka tours, providing visitors a mid tour break at the magnificent beaches around Trincomalee and Passikudah, along with seven new Sri Lanka accommodation options, while two Como properties have been added to Travel Indochina’s Maldives offering – the award winning Cocoa Island and Maalifushi – as part of its selection of the best tropical island paradise resort experiences from Taj, Six Senses and Coco Palm.
