Cox & Kings has revealed its predictions for travel hotspots this year.

The destinations of Beirut, India, South Africa, Istanbul, Abu Dhabi, Cuba and South Australia feature among the predicted top destinations.


Also tipped to be popular is an India on Rails tour onboard the luxury Maharajas’ Express, which debuts tomorrow (January 16) in Mumbai.

The train accommodates up to 84 passengers in four categories of suite and will operate four pan-Indian itineraries: from Mumbai to Delhi and from Delhi to Calcutta plus both journeys in reverse.

An 11-night itinerary combining six nights onboard the train, travelling from Delhi to Calcutta, plus three nights’ breakfast accommodation in Delhi and two in Calcutta, costs from £4,795 per person.

All meals on board the train, flights, transfers and excursions are included.

The operator is offering a buy-on-get-one-half-price offer for travel on the Maharajas’ Express before the end of April for a Club World upgrade, saving £672.50 per couple.
