The Great Escape profiles holiday destinations, one popular and one offbeat, in each episode. While the glossy visuals of picturesque locales gratifies the armchair traveller holidaying vicariously, the detailed information of how and when to get there pleases those intending to go on that great getaway.

The show whizzes across not merely the length and breadth of India, but all of Asia. So whether you’re into skiing in Kashmir’s Gulmarg, or exploring ancient temples in South India, or sun bathing in the Seychelles, you are sure to find it here.

Right from scuba diving or scouting for the best deals at local markets, the presenters of the show handle it all panache.

First hosted by actor Rahul Bose, the show is later anchored by Niret Alva.

The Great Escape, together with shows like Off the Beaten Path, Real India Travel Show, and Musafir Hoon Yaaron gives Miditech the largest body of work on travel television in India.
