India | Newmarket Holidays

Travelling to India is nothing new to many Westerners. However, even in the most typical destinations, such as the Taj Mahal, there are pleasant surprises. The country is an exciting and astonishing adventure. An escorted holiday is one great way to explore a country as vast as India, as a well-planned tour will cover both essential highlights and allow travellers to experience the astonishing natural beauty of India. Experiencing a few highlights of India from both the North and South is one of the best ways to explore such a vast country, especially if one does not plan on making multiple visits.

Newmarket HolidaysThe Northern cities of Delhi, Jaipur and Agra are among the world’s most fascinating ancient cities, each of them packed with remarkable sights and memorable experiences. Despite being relatively close to one another, travellers will instantly notice that even among these three cities there is a remarkable amount of cultural and architectural variety. Agra is home to the majestic Taj Mahal, known all around the world, as well as the Agra Fort and the remarkable Jama Masjid. Jaipur, in the beautiful state of Rajasthan, features such sites as the Palace of the Winds and the Amber Fort.

Portugal | Newmarket Holidays

Portugal is the farthest west of all the countries in continental Europe, which means that it has many miles of beautiful Atlantic coastline. As the location was historically strategically important, Portugal has seen many cultures reside in and influence the land that is currently Portugal. As a result, the country has developed not only an exceptional and unique culture of its own but is also home to remarkable cultural and architectural landmarks. Portugal’s fascinating history and exciting culture make it an enthralling spot for travellers to explore. Many areas of the country’s cities and resorts exude elegance and sophistication, while other areas provide exceptionally beautiful natural sights. The country is also known for being one of the top countries in the world with respect to its number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Newmarket HolidaysThe Portuguese capital city of Lisbon distills Portugal’s enthralling blend of the past and the present, the historic and the modern, into one of Europe’s most fascinating urban centres. Lisbon stands on the famous River Tagus, the launching point for many of the world’s most famous explorers, the place from where these explorers set off to discover the New World.

Lisbon is no doubt one of the most popular spots for tourists visiting Portugal, but it is important to note that the country has a great deal of other interesting areas. Estoril, for example, is an elegant resort featuring the largest casino in Europe as well as a beautiful seafront with many cafes and bistros. Estoril, which overlooks the Atlantic Ocean, is a popular base for holidays for good reason, offering an ideal mix of bustle and  opportunities for relaxation.

The province of Alentejo is another remarkable area of Portugal well worth visiting. The famous UNESCO-listed city of Evora is at the heart of the province, which is also filled with olive farms and wineries. Beautiful remnants of the Renaissance abound in Alentejo.

Nearby, many ancient sites of historical and architectural interest invite explorers and travellers to learn about them. Portugal can offer, with the right planning and organisation, some of the best holidays one can experience.
