Commencing her Scenic journey of India in Bangalore, the capital city of India's southern state, Livinia travels to Coorg in the west coast, home of India's coffee.

From here she continues inland to the village of Kabini, and then onto the palace town of Mysore.

Episode 2 shows Livina discovering the port city of Kochi and the local fishing industry, before cruising the network of rivers, lakes and canals in the coastal state of Kerala. From the south, Livnia heads north to Madurai and Chettinad, famous for its incredible mansions built in the late 1700’s.

In the last Episode, Livinia explores the towns of Trichy and Tanjore, known as the temple city thanks to many temples and shrines which have been built over the centuries, before heading north to the last stop on this incredible odyssey – the city of Chennai.
