The incomparable Taj Mahal, sacred Varanasi and the fortified, pink city of Jaipur roll past the windows of the Viceroy of India from Mumbai in a huge semi-circular trail to the lush tea plantations of Darjeeling. The sumptuous, patterned Indian-style interior and the (mostly) Indian food allow the culture to seep into the carriages themselves, so the country becomes more than just a series of flickering images.
