At Culture Aangan holiday experience, we do not rush. We want our visitors to soak in the peace, unwind and rejuvenate. Our locations have it all, wonderful experiences for those who are adventurous at heart, cultural heritage and un-spoilt beauty for those looking for peace. Enjoy long languid hours under the sun on pristine beaches, take a dip in blue waters, discover waterfalls, enjoy a boat ride along the lagoons with only dolphins for company, or get up early to treks into the hills. Alternatively, spend the day visiting local temples, markets and witness fresh fish auctions. Just grab a bicycle and cycle aimlessly soaking up the local life and culture. Our experiences are designed around you, you tell us what you want to do and we will try to make it happen! All of our activities are arranged, and delivered by local people with the money going back into the local economy.
