Bolgatty Palace and Island Resort Cochin – Kerala

We stayed in Bolgatty Palace and Island Resort in Cochin during our Kerala travel. I had booked online on KTDC’s website because they give a discount for online booking.

This is a mansion originally built by Dutch traders in 1744 and as per records, it is the oldest existing outside Netherlands. In past, it was once the Governor’s palace for the commander of Dutch Malabar and also…

Things to do in Bangkok – My 3 Days Itinerary

Bangkok is a most affordable destination from India, it is cheaper than some of the Indian destinations. My first trip to Bangkok was way back in 2004 and I still have some memories from that trip.

Lansdowne from Delhi – A Weekend Gateway

Lansdowne from Delhi – A Weekend Gateway

There are many hill stations around Delhi within 250 to 350 Km range. During summer month everyone from North of India heads towards hill stations to get some respite from the heat and most of the hill stations are too crowded. I don’t like crowded places until there is something special happening at there. I was looking for some good option for hills and came across an interesting all women tour to Lansdowne from Delhi.

Travel tips for India from Personal Experience

Travel tips for India from Personal Experience

While I was writing my last post, I realized that sometimes we come across so much information on the internet that we get biased about a place. This made me thought that there are so many misconceptions about India that people who had never visited India might be confused like I was about the country I had never visited before. Then I thought that I traveled in India from Ladakh to Kanyakumari and from Kutch to Assam as a solo…

Cambodia was on my list for this year but during my research, I came across lots of stories of scams at the border or at touristy places. These confused me and I was not sure if I can travel solo.

I had done with…

Annoying Habits of Fellow Travelers

Annoying Habits of Fellow Travelers

I had traveled solo, with family, with friends, and in groups also. There are many advantages of traveling with others but at the same time, I have to deal with some irritating and annoying habits of fellow travelers. We all have to face these and we adjust. Over the years, I had noticed and dealt with some of these habits. Sometimes I told my fellow traveler what I don’t like but on other occasions, I kept quite and felt irritated….

Bhutan Travel guide and Itinerary

Bhutan Travel guide and Itinerary

What I liked most about Bhutan is that they maintained the uniqueness even though they are trapped between India & China. They preserved and followed their art, architecture, culture, and traditions. Bhutanese people consciously save their culture from the blunt influences of the western world. They are modern in outlook but at the same time they are very traditional and balance everything in very good manner. I had seen almost everyone wears the traditional dresses (Kira for women and Gho…
