Golden triangle cities- Delhi, Agra and Jaipur- popular travel destinations in India figure in the second Michelin Green Guide in India launched recently
Golden triangle cities- Delhi, Agra and Jaipur- popular travel destinations in India figure in the second Michelin Green Guide in India launched recently. The edition is the second in the series, following the Chennai (Tamil Nadu) edition in early 2013. The guide encourages travellers from across the world to explore the rich heritage and culture of diverse India.
Cynthia Ochterbeck, editorial director, Michelin Travel Partner said, “After launching the Green Guide to Chennai and Tamil Nadu, we wanted to add another edition which would reflect the rich culture and heritage of India.”
Ochterbeck said it is impossible to tell India’s tale without talking about the magnificent art and architecture of the Mughal era. “Hence we came up with Delhi, Agra and Jaipur- the golden triangle with an added perspective on sustainable tourism. We hope that with the second edition of the Green Guide coming to India, we can contribute our share to the rapidly evolving tourism market in the country,” she added.
The guide proposes itineraries for exploring the vestiges of the short-lived city Fatehpur Sikri, spotting tigers on a jeep safari in Ranthambore National Park, and experiencing the local colour at Pushkar’s annual camel fair and of course, marveling at the Taj Mahal.
Michelin, a Tyre maker, has a celebrated star-rating system for attractions, detailed maps and recommendations for restaurants and accommodations to help travellers experience the best of the region. Recommendations for places to eat and stay, including those linked to sustainable tourism like trails at off-beat locations, visits to organic farms, bio-diversity protection, and descriptions of the enduring ways of life, culture and heritage that are community based, and environmentally friendly highlight the guide.
