Where to go
Hop onto any domestic Air India flights to Gaya, a major pilgrimage city for Hindus and Buddhists in Bihar, India. This is a picturesque city surrounded by a series of rocky hills. Be sure not to miss the 94 foot tall Vishal Buddha Mandir that will leave you stunned by its beauty. Take a thousand steps up the Brahmajuni Hill for a bird’s eye view of the city. Before you leave this city, pay your respects at the Vishnupad Temple which houses Vishnu’s footprints imprinted into solid rock.
Air India offers cheap promotions and tickets to Agra, where you will be awe-inspired by the stunning Taj Mahal. Take beautiful pictures of this white-marble monument without leaving the comforts of your hotel room in the Taj Ganj area. Do something different by taking a boat ride down the Yamuna River and get some lovely snapshots of the Taj Mahal. Explore the ruined city of Fatehpur Sikri and the pilgrimage centre of Mathura to learn more about the rise and fall of the Mughal Empire.
Take a flight to Thiruvananthapuram, a fantastic gateway for tourists wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. See some of the last remaining palaces from the kingdom of Travancore or one of the richest temples in the world, the Sree Anantha Padmanabhaswamy Temple or just relax at one of the many gardens. Nestled along the Arabian Sea, this city allows visitors to chill and relax on its well-known beaches like Kovalam beach.
Air India connects the capital of India, New Delhi, to the cosmopolitan city of New York (JFK). Spend the day visiting some of the finest museums in the world such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Have a picnic at the ever-popular Central Park with some local $0.99 a-slice-pizza. If you’re into theatre and the performing arts, be sure to catch the Broadway shows. If you’re intending to paint the town red, head to the bars and jazz clubs at Greenwich Village.
Head to Hong Kong by hopping on frequent Cathay Pacific Airlines flights. Hong Kong is one of Asia’s most dynamic and modern cities with packed sidewalks and neon signage on almost every street. Most people visit this cosmopolitan city to eat and shop but the city’s natural reserves and attractions are also worth checking out.
