Slumdog Millionaire Promotion
Win a trip to India thanks to the release of Slumdog Millionaire and Kumuka Worldwide.

Join Asian small group specialists Kumuka Worldwide on 9 day "Highlights of India" tour thanks to the release of Danny Boyle's (Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) new film Slumdog Millionaire.

Affectionately known as 2008's Little Miss Sunshine, Slumdog Millionaire is the story of how impoverished Indian teen Jamal Malik (Patel) became a contestant on the Hindi version of Who Wants to be A Millionaire?. Without ever considering the prize money, Jamal competes to prove his love for Latika (Pinto) and fulfil his destiny.

Now thanks to Icon Films and BigPond Movies you can experience for yourself the major highlights of India with a nine day Kamuka Worldwide tour covering Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Varanasi.

The trip includes:

- Return flights for two from either Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide or Perth to Delhi.
- Travel to Jaipur (The Pink City) and a visit to Amber Fort and the beautiful City Palace and its Observatory.
- Travel to Agra to explore the ruined ghost city and ancient capital of the Mghal Dynasty.
- Experience the spectacular Taj Mahal during sunrise, and explore the Red Fort and Itmad-Ud-Daulah.
- Travel overnight via train to Varanasi, and visit Sarnath.
- A boat ride along the Holy River Granges to witness Indian religious rituals and daily life.
- A Delhi city tour including India Gate, Jama Masjid, The Parliament Buildings and the World Heritage Humayun’s Tomb.

As well as the major prize, we also have 25 runners up prizes to giveaway, each containing:

- One in-season double pass to see Slumdog Millionaire,
- And a pack of beautiful incense from Earth Secrets so you can create a pocket of India in your own home.
