Rajeev's Indian subcontinent

February 15, 2017

We asked Rajeev's personal picks this month.





"We use our reputation & goodwill to ensure the very best for our partners.  What I love the most about India is our diversity. We literally have something for every passion point. Be is culture or cuisine; nature or adventure, beaches or mountains; wellness or shopping. No matter what a traveller wants, we have something to offer. Our diversity does not end in product alone. We are also a diverse population. Our food, our gods, our costumes all change every 100 miles. This ensures that no matter where we take the traveller, we have something fresh to offer. We also are a society that loves showing our inner feelings to guests. That is why travellers feel very welcome in any corner of India they travel to. I am blessed with some much to offer and also cursed as where to start with." 

Rajeev Kohli, JMD of Creative Travel
