Everyone tours India by land, but not many people know that this nation can be toured by a cruise as well.
Luxury river cruises in India are the newest and most innovative way of exploring the Indian sub-continent. Skip the off-beaten path of touring India by land and hop on to a luxury cruise boat for an experience out-of-the-ordinary. As you cruise through scenic rivers and backwaters, revel in the solitude away from the hustle-bustle of the city, enjoy a communion with nature, and watch the humble life in coastal hamlets pass by.
There are a number of luxury river cruises offered by Hi-Tours.com. Take your pick from cruises such as 'Apsara Heaven on Water', which refers to a luxury cruise boat that is nothing less than a boutique hotel floating down the waters of the Vembanad Lake and the Kerala Backwater or opt for the RV Bengal Ganga, a luxury liner that cruises down the Holy River Ganges. RV Bengal Ganga offers different cruises; each departs from Kolkata and has a common route until Farakka.
At 12 nights/13 days, 'Incredibly on the Ganges' is the longest route and covers not just important cultural and religious centers on the banks of the holy river but attractions such as Vikramshila Gangetic Dolphin Sanctuary and historical landmarks such as Vikramshila University, Munger and Sarnath as well.
