Dinner with the Prince
Have a private dinner with Mysore’s prince and his family, who live in the half of the palace not open to the public. He will give you a private tour of his home and detail the history of his family, whose rich past also bears the weight of a curse.
Spend a morning wandering around Mysore’s fantastic fruit and vegetable market. Learn how to roll incense sticks or purchase fragrant fennel seeds, the latter being a local custom for freshening one’s breath after a meal.
Sample crispy dosas, large, flat pancakes made of lentil flower and stuffed with a variety of fillings, from curried potatoes and onions to shredded chicken. Stop by a chaat stall, which serves savoury snacks, such as aloo tikki, or potato fritters served with cilantro and sweet tamarind chutney; bhelpuri, puffed rice served with vegetables and a tangy sauce; and laddoos, decadent, ball-shaped sweets made from a variety of flours.
Visit a sari silk weaving mill and meet with the owner to see how intricate patterns, hallmarks of luxurious fabric from Mysore, are woven through a complex punch-card system.

Couple from Madrid
Our private jet was a very important part of our trip. Most of the legs were less than 30 minutes, compared to six to 10 hours if we traveled by road. Overall, we had a fantastic trip to a new country for us. Remote Lands never fails!
