Can you hear the sound of the timpani and the zither? It’s the call to come and travel, have a change of scene and join in in the celebrations! Attending a cultural or religious festival whilst on holiday in Asia is a great way to get acquainted with the country’s culture and traditions and immerse yourself in authentic experiences.
Rajasthan in India is known for its many festivals that animate this region, the kingdom of Maharajas, shepherd and Rajput warriors. I invite you to discover this region of India during sufii or gipsy, festivals that take place in Jodhpur, or come and join me at the fabulous Pushkar fair. Buddhist festivals in Tibet, Bhutan and more generally in the Himalayas are also amazing celebrations that bring monasteries to life: sacred places full of spirituality become home to these festivals which you can join in and witness history. My advice to you is to plan your holiday to Asia around one of these most magnificent festivals to add something a little special to your holiday. You can head over to our festival calendar to see what dates would work or simply contact a Travel Expert today who will help you organise your holiday to Asia peppered with festivals.
