Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BASINGSTOKE, England - May 18, 2017 - For some, travelling is all about the destination, and wherever you lay your head is irrelevant as long as the accommodation is clean. For others, how you travel is equally important, with a holiday providing an opportunity to indulge in some serious creature comforts, staying in some of the world’s finest hotels, and enjoying private, chauffeur-driven transport throughout.
This is the philosophy of Corinthian Travel – which also offers a choice of Sapphire and Diamond-level accommodation on most itineraries – and, by using their in-depth destination knowledge and utilising local contacts, a standard visit to some of the many iconic sites that await in India, North Africa and the Middle East are transformed into a wonderful, cherished memory.
Here are just a few suggested Experiences of a Lifetime with Corinthian Travel…
Taj Mahal by Moonlight (Indian Sojourn (https://www.corinthiantravel.co.uk/destination/north-india-holidays/indian-sojourn?utm_source=India+%26+Arabia+%7C+Experiences+of+a+Lifetime&utm_campaign=Experiences+of+a+Lifetime+2017&utm_medium=email): 10 days from £ 1395 pp)
In 1631, the heartbroken Moghul emperor Shah Jehan ordered the construction of a spectacular monument in memory of his beloved wife. This gleaming mausoleum of flawless symmetry is studded with precious stones and built from milk-white marble and rose sandstone. The Taj Mahal is acknowledged as one of the world’s most remarkable and romantic monuments and viewing it by moonlight is a unique experience that is possible for five days a month (if the weather is clear). The moonlight visit can be arranged on the 10-day Indian Sojourn itinerary.
Sail like a Pasha down the Nile (Pasha Dahabiya Nile Cruise (https://www.corinthiantravel.co.uk/destination/egypt-holi…): 12 days from £2225)
For pure relaxation, there is nothing quite like the experience of sailing slowly up the River Nile like the Pashas of old in a traditional, twin-masted wooden dahabiya! Dahabiyas have between eight and ten cabins and offer a much more intimate and immersive style of cruise that will enable you to visit villages and smaller sites, where the standard large multi-deck Nile Cruises can’t dock. If you are looking for a small and elegant boat on which to cruise the River Nile, and enjoy at a more leisurely pace, then the dahabiya cruises could well be for you.
Experience the fervour of Easter in Jerusalem (Classic Israel (https://www.corinthiantravel.co.uk/destination/israel-hol…): 8 days from £3850)
‘The Eternal City’ of Jerusalem is a special place to visit at all times of the year but during Holy Week and Easter it truly comes into its own. Celebrating the greatest events of Jesus’ life at the very sites where they occurred, is a moving and unforgettable experience. Easter is also a wonderful time to see other Christian denominations celebrate their rites. On Corinthian Travel’s private tour ‘Classic Israel’ you can plan a visit to coincide with Easter in Jerusalem.
