Thai New Year: Songkran & it’s Indian Connection

Last year at this time, we were drenched to the skin and loving it as we walked down the Beach Road at Pattaya. No it was not raining, it was bright and sunny. Hot to be precise. It was Songkran day and ice-cold water was being poured on us by everyone on the street. Songkran […]

Destination Coorg

252 kms from Bangalore and 1525 m above sea level lies Coorg which means ‘dense forest on steep hill’. Coorg is often called the Scotland of India.

Being one of the closest getaways from Bangalore (apart from Mysore), it is a nice place to spend a weekend.

The misty hills, lush forest, acres and acres of pepper and coffee plantation, orange groves, undulating streets and breathtaking views are what make Coorg an unforgettable holiday destination.

Fact File : Chail – Himachal Pradesh

It might not be one of the Top 10 Hill Stations in India as per mustseeindia, but Chail has all the makings of a perfect holiday in the hills. And the icing on the cake is that it’s not as crowded as some of the top 10! Chail is about 350km from Delhi and it takes […]

Fact File : MHOW

Have you guys seen the Madhya Pradesh Tourism advertisement? ‘Hindustan ka dil dekha…’ Isn’t it awesome? I totally lov it!

Shopping @ South Delhi

I once saw a fuchsia pink ambassador (India’s oldest and most iconic car), driven by a Blonde European Lady, outside South Extension Market, with the back seat filled with Nalli & Benetton shopping bags: an image that forever will make me smile. Well! Delhi is all about contradictions – unusual things usually happen here. The […]

Your shopping Guide to Delhi

Confession – I’m an obsessed Delhiite and I’ll love Delhi no matter how crazy it becomes. Although, this was not always the case; there was a time when I thought Delhi sucked. This was way back when I found traveling in Delhi inconvenient and the pollution levels unbearable. Things have changed for the better, with […]

Trip-ping in Goa

Our drive to Goa was anything but NON-Entertaining, driving 14-15 hrs on a road that went on and on forever. We drove thru a windmill farm, a one lane National highway, then a six lane express way, a jungle, train crossing, a ghat with no street lights and finally we drove parallel to moon lit […]

Just what the doctor ordered…GOA!

Our recent trip to Goa is just what we needed, not that we are over worked or exhausted, but who doesn’t love a little pampering & relaxation. Most believe Goa to be a place for huge groups of […]
