Couples Holidays. Planning some Holidays with Hubby (or your significant other)? Women Travel Mother India also works with couples, after all some of our best friends are men, right?
If you have a hubby or a significant other, don’t leave them at home to mow the lawns and watch 24 hour sport on the telly, there is lots to keep them entertained in India!
They can go fishing for Mahaseer, track tigers in the jungle, scale mountains with you (or maybe just have a nice village trek). Take a cruise down the lesser explored Brahmaputra river in Assam or attend the Hornbill Festival in the North East….He could probably even play a few rounds of golf while you get on with some serious spa business!
I know women are from Venus and men from Mars but India is a planet in between those polarities. And having a man along in a country like India actually proves a different experience all together!

ARTFUL TRAVEL RAJASTHAN
Rajasthan is such a well trodden path that unless you get a little bit off the beaten path you may end up meeting THAT couple you really would rather avoid at almost every monument you stop at, worse you will go home with a whole bunch of photos that everyone will instantly recognise and say “O yeah I have been there too!”
Wouldn’t you rather have people say..But where is that? How come I didn’t see that when I was in India? Rajasthan has so much more to offer than the usual tourist merry go round and lucky for you I have a few of those places up my sleeve to show you.
ASSAM RIVER CRUISE AND WILDLIFE

This cruise on the highest reaches of the Brahmaputra still navigable highlights the unique culture of the area, fusing Indian and S.E. Asian influences, with a visit to Sibsagar, the old capital of the Ahom kings, as well as to Majuli Island with its unique Hindu monastic communities famous for their dance drama. Wildlife is not forgotten, and the cruise also visits Kaziranga, where sightings of rhino are virtually guaranteed.
