Lonely Planet India has launched ‘Escape Express’. This wonderful and racy contest will take you on a virtual journey to exciting destinations around New Delhi, Bengaluru and Mumbai. The contest starts from Delhi, would quiz you about your favourite travel haunts and award you miles on every right answer you give. The journey then moves onto the cities of Mumbai, Bengaluru and ends with users sharing their ‘Escape Diary’ of memorable trips.

It is needless to say that I would be traveling in the Escape Express myself. Escape Express started chugging on 1 August 2013 and will continue on its journey till 31 August 2013.

Apart from getting the virtual thrill of traveling to different destinations around some of the biggest cities in India, the winners would also get a chance to win plenty of thrilling prizes. The first prize is the winner’s choice of either an Apple 16GB iPad with Retina Display and Wi-Fi Cellular (4th Generation) or a Nikon DSLR camera.

The second prize is an Apple 16GB iPad Mini with Wi-Fi.  Best of next ten entries will win gift vouchers from a luggage company. But that’s not all, Escape Express also has dozens of other exciting prizes to be won under various categories.

This is one train ride you cannot miss !
