As you walk through the ancient streets of Varanasi, India's oldest continuously inhabited city, you can feel the weight of history in every step. The narrow alleyways are lined with ornate temples, bustling markets, and vibrant ghats that lead to the sacred Ganges River, where pilgrims come to cleanse their sins and seek spiritual enlightenment.

Nature's Marvels

From the awe-inspiring Himalayas to the golden beaches of Sri Lanka, the subcontinent offers a diverse range of natural wonders. The mighty peaks of Mount Everest, Kanchenjunga, and Nanda Devi attract climbers and adventurers from around the globe. The serene backwaters of Kerala, India's tropical paradise, provide a perfect escape for those seeking tranquility.

In Nepal, the birthplace of Buddha, you can embark on a once-in-a-lifetime trek to Annapurna Base Camp and witness breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain ranges. If you prefer the coastal charm, the Maldives offer pristine white sandy beaches, crystal-clear waters, and vibrant coral reefs teeming with marine life.

From the spicy curries of India to the aromatic biryanis of Pakistan, the subcontinental cuisine is a treat for the taste buds. Street food stalls, bustling with locals and tourists alike, serve mouth-watering delicacies that will leave you craving for more.

Read about the frightening consequences of being mistaken for a dead despot on a day out at the beach. Eating ‘crazy’ cookies for dessert in the desert? A back room brutalisation masquerading as massage. Walking barefoot on rodent faeces and a temple dedicated to Bach

When was the last time you lost a camel, let alone two? Saw architectural pornography? Upstaged Gandhi in his own house, or were made king for a day?


Read of horizontal rocket launches, the woman with two brains, enforced idol worship, extreme body piercing, burning corpses, mysterious skulls, threats of deity violence, hordes of naked men, and a nice cup of chai?

The Occidental Tourists - not your average collection of Indian travellers’ tales. Give it a go.
