Holiday Types

At Asia Senses Travel we’re adventurers at heart. Our journeys are all about discovering new places and cultures while creating unforgettable memories through physical activity and breathtaking scenery.

Visit ooty

Just over the border in Tamil Nadu, Ooty, 'Queen of Hill Stations', mixes Indian bustle and Hindu temples with beautiful gardens, an international school and charming Raj-era bungalows (which provide its most atmospheric accommodation). It may be a bit hectic, especially its messy centre, but it doesn't take long to escape into quieter, greener areas where tall pines rise above what could almost be English country lanes.

This former grand hill station (complete with golf course and race track) remains popular with Indian tourists enjoying the cool air. Ooty can be reached by road but the sedate, four-hour journey from Mettupalayam along the narrow-gauge Blue Mountain Railway, is a must for railway enthusiasts.
