Mumbai, 1st November 2012 - For the first time ever, Marathi Television is all set to make history with the launch of an International Travel Reality show presented by Cox & Kings on Star Pravah, popular Marathi channel beginning November 4th, 2012.

This unique travel reality show was conceptualised last year when Cox & Kings launched their tours for Maharashtrians called Amhi Travelkar. The Amhi Travelkar Holiday is an all-inclusive holiday with costs that include the airfare, accommodation, meals, sightseeing and a Marathi speaking tour manager.
Customers who booked the Amhi Travelkar tours to domestic, European and American destinations entered a lucky draw wherein they had to choose their dream destination that they would like to showcase on TV. The 13 lucky winners visited and explored their dream destination along with Priya Bapat and the television crew.
The destinations included Heidelberg & Neushwanstein Castle in Germany; Glacier 3000, Jungrau, Gstaad & Mt Cox & Kings in Switzerland; Rome, Italy; Innsbruck, Austria; Paris, France; Amsterdam, Netherlands; Brussels, Belgium; Kashmir & Gujarat in India.
The show will have four sections beginning with Priya Bapat introducing the winner and talking about their choice of the Dream Destination, followed by the exploration of the dream destination, showcasing its history, culture and significance. The third section is a Contest/ challenge uniquely designed around the destination which the hostess poses to the participants to create happy memories for them, finally ending with a few words written by the winners about their experience on a local post card.
The show is filled with breathtaking landscapes totally from a traveller’s perspective. Explore destinations on television’s first ever Marathi international travel reality show, “Amhi Travelkar” on Star Pravah beginning November 4th at 10.30 am.
