  • Trichy

  • Kumbakonam

Homeland of living classical civilizations

Tamil Nadu, a place of one of the world’s classical civilizations, is a different experience of spirituality and culture. Some of the temples here are among India's finest, from the sculpted stonework at Thanjavur (Tanjore) to the sprawling halls at Madurai. Across the state, pulsing urban centers rise like concrete islands amid a landscape of palm and banana plantations, rice fields and rugged sandstone scarps. Chettinad, developed centuries ago by the international traders, the Chettiars and Tanjore & Madurai, renowned as pilgrim centers. Famed for the Dravidian-style Hindu temples, the old cities of Tamil Nadu offer a rich historic, architectural & culinary experience.Tamil Nadu has long-lasting traditions. This includes the pattu silk saree weaving, creation of Athangudi handmade tiles, the spicy dishes of Chettinad cuisine and the thrill of bullock cart races.

  • If you are travelling alone and/or dont know how to go about it, then WOW Club is the perfect place for you. You just confirm your travel, and leave the rest to them.Your tickets, hotel bookings, visas will all be taken care of by them. On my recent trip to Turkey with WOW , i was really happy about the location of the hotels as well. They were all so centrally loacated that you could enjoy the local nightlife on your own. On the whole they are efficient, well organised and reliable. The WOW Buddy who travels with the group is a buddy in true sense, lending all the support and help needed. I highly recommend travelling with WOW 😊

  • While selecting the tour agency for a trip, one asks “why WOW?” But after travelling ,one realizes that Wow is not just a travel agency---it is a travel family. The care and the exclusive hands-on experiences are something to be remembered even after the trip—be it dancing the Samba, a five star picnic lunch with snow-capped Andes range as companions, being photographed with the Llamas or tasting the local brews, such as Kashasa(Brazil), Pisco(Peru) or Singani(Bolivia)….even learning how to make a cocktail of perfect potency!! And of course the Wow buddy….a friend and a dependable companion. What makes her tick? This has been my second travelling experience with Vithika Solanki - and she has proved her worth.

  • What does twin share price mean?

    Twin share price is the price mentioned against a package and it refers to the cost per head for a double sharing accommodation. If you'd like to upgrade to Single Occupancy, please select this at the time of checkout
  • Regarding the hotels, what does OR SIMILAR refer to?

    OR SIMILAR means that the hotel booked might be different from the hotel mentioned in the itinerary. 90% of the time we book the hotel that’s mentioned, but under few situations it might differ due to on-the-ground factors. So we pick an alternate hotel, but always in the same class and area of the city.
  • What can one shop in Tanjore?

    Some of the best things to look forward to while shopping in the grand old city are beautiful Tanjore paintings, silk hand-loom weaves, handmade clay dolls, traditional musical instruments and stunning wooden craft-work, brass plates, brass sculptures, silk carpets and other traditional crafts.
  • What is a must try in the famous Chettinad cuisine?

    Chicken Chettinad is one of the most popular dishes from this region. Mushroom Chettinad is a close second. A few more to try are the Palkatti Chettinadu, Urlai Roast, Chettinad fish fry.
