This expert on luxury destinations says India is the place to go.
Q Where is home?
A Delhi, India as a senior manager at Abercrombie & Kent.
Q Is most of your travel work or pleasure?
A Mostly for work, promoting India and its neighbouring countries, Nepal, Bhutan and Sri Lanka. Travel takes me all over the world - be it the Americas, Europe, Australia or south-east Asia for up to three weeks at a time.
Q What do you do when you land in a city?
A Ask for the best speciality-eating place to taste the local cuisine.
Q What's in your hand luggage?
A My laptop, iPod, noise-reduction Bose headsets, set of travelling toiletries, a book to read and an eye mask.
Q What's one thing you do on every trip?
A Being a die-hard golfer, I ensure that I take time out for a round of golf. Hope Island Golf Resort at Sanctuary Cove is my favourite.
Q Favourite meal abroad?
A The wagyu beef entree at Sirocco in the Lebua Hotel in Bangkok is amazing. It combines beef carpaccio and steak tartare with foie gras and porcini mushrooms. A blue fin tuna dish follows with grilled white asparagus, aged balsamic and gazpacho foam. Just being at Sirocco is mind-blowing. It's on the 63rd floor of The Dome at the hotel with cracking views and an amazing skybar.
Q Do you have a favourite hotel?
A The Amanbagh in the Alwar district on the outskirts of Jaipur, Rajasthan, India.
Q What is the next big destination for travellers?
A I believe it will be India. The destination has diversity, great food, fabulous hotels and resorts to stay in, amazing festivals and with the Commonwealth Games in October in Delhi, there will be a lot of international attention. The most interesting festival to attend is the camel trading fair every October- November for 10 days in the small temple town of Pushkar in Ajmer district about 130 kilometres south of the pink city of Jaipur. It is a time of joy and celebration when villagers come to trade their camels and cattle and get their children married. It attracts thousands of visitors.
