My views/experience about the destination
Goa is one destination that you want to keep coming back to. I had been to goa with my friends on college trip. We had a blast, from Candolim beaches, water sports to sight seeing, you just never seem to get enough of the sun, sand and beaches. Its the best place to get away from the hectic work schedule, just lying on the beach or partying around. Goa has something for every one, if you are with your loved ones, Goa will never disappoint you it is the best get away
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
Well the sea food is awesome, as specially the tiger prawn fro rs 400 it was worth it, the fort agonda is amazing, you might get view of dolphins if you are lucky. if you are at a beach dont miss the water sports as specially the para-sailing is awesome. you can also shop for collectibles near the beach shops but dont forget to bargain but i think the best of goa is the night walk on the cold beach sand in moonlight
My advice to fellow travellers
My advice stay at one beach and enjoy nature if you travel too much you may miss the best part of it. It is the best get away from the daily urban lifestyle, the beaches and the forts are amazing. dont miss the water sport and dolphins. just relax and goa will enchant you.

My views/experience about the destination
The Veneto FAM trip was organized by ENIT (Italian State Tourist Board) and courtesy AlItalia. An amazing and a beautiful experience when I experienced the snowfall and witnessed the world famous Venetian Carnival, one of its kind for the first time, where temperatures were at -2 & - 3 degrees Celsius in the most romantic city. Wow!!!!!!! I can still feel the chill!!!!!!!!... We stayed at Veneto for 3 nights. Veneto is famous for the vineyards where you visit the wine cellars, vineyards and can experience wine tasting sessions.. Delicious!! You can also shop different kinds of wines at their outlets at competitive prices. If you are in Veneto, you cant ignore the villas.. they are so beautiful, rich in history and tradition and preserved so very well, with landscaped gardens and tapestries. There are villas and vineyards everywhere.. It looks like experiencing a film & shooting in reality. On the last day, we took the train to Venice (the ICE train).. again the 1st time for me to get to the Eurail. On arrival we took a " Vaparetto" (water taxi) to San Marco. It was freezing colddddddd but we all were very excited. Everyone was dressed in their favourite outfits. It was like a fancy dress competition. And not to forget the lovely and creative " masks", which is the most important feature of the carnival. The locals were getting their face painted.. so we decided to get adventurous and get our faces painted or get some tattoos done. A cool experience. It was a "happy" atmosphere. The excitement was building as we were waiting for the "Carnival Parade" and then it happened. everyone dancing, singing and cheering on the streets. I danced and paraded down the street with them. It was an amazing experience. Out of this world. I just loved every moment about it. A very well organized trip.
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
Food: Veneto - Delicious Wines. You can taste different varieties at the factory outlet and make purchases. Venice - local experiences of the city is a must so we got into a nice cozy local restaurant to taste the worlds famous" Pizzas", with margherita cheese dipping into our mouths. Yumm.!!!!! and a nice hot coffee to keep our body temperatures in control so we don't go numb. For the vegetarians, there is a limited choice so be prepared - my veggie friends.. but be happy you will get lots of pasta made in cheese and tomato sauce or pizzas to make up for your hunger pangs. - Food for thought! We come back again to explore San Marco Island. visit the Basilica of San Marco and the Doge's Palace, the bridge of sighs, the Grand Canal. Visit the Santa Maria dei Frari Basilica, a famous church built in gothic style. very peaceful and amazing architecture. The only thing which we all missed was the very famous Gondola ride since everything was frozen so could not do much. Shopping: You can shop for wines, souvenirs, masks, Murano Glass gift items etc. Things to do: Visit the San Marco Square and take an excursion to the Murano, Burano and Torcello islands. Your trip is incomplete without the " famous and romatic gondola ride".
My advice to fellow travellers
Beaware of your belongings. You must be very very careful of your belongings in Italy right from the time you have arrived at the airport. Don't trust anyone. Italians are not conversant with English, hence there is a language barrier to an extent. Be formally dressed during meetings, dinners etc. Food :For the vegetarians..well there is a limited choice available but the best way is to freak out on the fruits, juices and wholesome cereals during breakfast and maybe some pasta for your meal. Keeps you fit and healthy for a change! Carry maps along with you. Also carry copies of your hotel addresses when you are traveling locally. It helps! I would always suggest to carry extra copies of your air tickets, passport copies and hotel details and keep them in your luggage. You never know when you would just need them. Also carry Travellers cheques and little currency in cash. You would anyways have a credit card! So here's wishing a Happy and safe journey to all my fellow beings!! Happy Memories & Bon Voyage!

Pristine, beautiful, calm, serene.. these are the words that come to your mind once you reach this place.God's own country is just about the right medicine to refresh oneself from the busy and hectic life in a city.
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
Food is traditionally south Indian but they also offer some Chinese stuff. Lot of non veg option - specially fresh fish & shrimps. Shopping in Kerala is mainly fresh tea, spices, dry fruits and oils (Ayurvedic).
My advice to fellow travellers
Munnar can be considered a monsoon destination. The Fresh smell of cardamom & spices, the tea plantations, the clouds and the mist which almost brush your face and above all the rain and the wet weather just leaves permanent etchings on ones mind.

Traveller rating
0 / 5
My views/experience about the destination
Kenya is a must visit for people who emjoy wildlife amd if not then they will certainly start loving it...it gave us a chance to be in the wilderness and experience nature at its best. The mighty King of the Jungle - The Lion was at its best and surely a must see in its natural habitat...If given a chance visit Kenya during the migration when animals migrate from Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to Masai Mara in Kenya. Kenya certainly is a destination for both backpackers for whom various campsites are available and for luxury travellers with best of properties like the Fairmont Mt. Kenya Safari Club being one of the many!!!
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
The food is amazing in Kenya with options of game meat, normal continental and ofcourse for the Indian clientele our very own desi khana...A must visit for amazing food is The Carnivore Restaurant in Nairobi. Sightseeing would mainly be the national parks and when in Masai Mara dont miss the Masai Village which gives one the insight into the life of the local Masai Tribe and their daily lifestyle. One must certainly pick the souvernirs there of the BIG FIVE along with some handmade costume Masai Jewellery made in the Masai Village.
My advice to fellow travellers
Kenya is a relatively save place now, but do not try to venture out along after the dark in the national park. Do carry a torch along and keep it handy at all times. Yellow fever vaccination is a must and should be taken minimum 10 days prior to departing to Kenya. Do carry photocopies of your yellow fever vaccination certificate along with the original as the same might be asked at the immigrations once you land in India.

Date of Trip : 2010-07-03 | Destination visited : Thailand
Traveller rating
0 / 5
My views/experience about the destination
Thailand is relatively a very common destination for tourists who want to travel international from India. Pattaya as such is an OK place but not be missed a visit to the Coral Island & the Alcazar Show. People say Bangkok is a shoppers paradise...not really as per me. Better stuffs are available in India these days, but do visit the Temple of the Reclining Buddha there.
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
Thai food will not be liked by all Indians, but certainly do try the same atleast once for the experience. Indian food is widely available with Indian restaurants available at every corner. Must do sightseeing in Pattaya - Coral Island, Underwater World & Alcazar Show. Do walk for experience on the Walking Street there. City tour in Bangkok can certainly be given a miss. Visit Indra Market & Pratunam for cheap shopping for clothes, bags, watches & shoes. Branded shopping can be done in MBK Mall, Siam Paragon and various other high end malls.
My advice to fellow travellers
Do bargain during shopping and also if you wish to take the local Tuk Tuk in Bangkok & Pattaya. If you have travelled to other destinations like Singapore etc, then you will certainly not like Thailand.

Date of Trip : 2010-05-17 | Destination visited : Murud Janjira
Traveller rating
5 / 5
My views/experience about the destination
Visiting the beach-town of ??Murud Janjira?? is akin to embarking on a historical voyage of discovery down the sands of time. A distance of 150 kms (it takes a little over 5 hours) separates this beautiful beach town from the city of Mumbai. Enjoy the drive along the rustic trail as you pass old towns and sleepy villages, enroute. As you approach Murud along the winding road, the beautiful coastline becomes visible on one side while the imposing ghats flank the other side. The sight of the waves lashing the white sandy beaches enlivens the soul as the pre-arrival excitement reaches a crescendo. The entrance to Murud town is heralded by a nondescript gate/post that announces the destination without any fanfare. The 2 kms long Murud beach is surprisingly clean and covered by white, firm sand interspersed with shades of black - remnants of silt left behind by the sea each time it recedes. While the sea is relatively calm here, the danger zone on one of its extreme ends is appropriately marked to warn the unwary tourist of the perils of the sea. There were no signs of any life-guard on the beach which only indicates that extra-caution needs to be exercised while frolicking in the sea. The water flaunts a dark hue possibly due to the colour of the silt that lies beneath. Don?t forget to feast your eyes on the sunset at the beach as dusk sets in stealthily. Sunset is beautiful and bathes the landscape in myriad hues of gold and orange.
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
The food at the resort was not only palatable; in fact it was a gourmet?s delight. We were pleasantly taken aback at the choice of dishes and more importantly, the veg/non-veg buffet meals served were consistently delicious throughout our stay, reinforcing our resolve to recommend this resort to all who would care to lend a ear. For those who enjoy sea-food, there are some mouth-watering treats awaiting you at the Golden Swan Resort. There is also plenty to choose from Indian Tandoori, Chinese and the spicy Konkani cuisine. There are other hotels in the vicinity that also (reportedly) serve great food but we were not tempted enough to sample their fare. The AC deluxe cottage that we stayed in was very decent; in fact it was value for money. The spacious rooms and bathrooms were well-maintained and clean. There is a bunk-bed in one of the rooms which, contrary to our expectations, turned out to be a king-sized bed large enough to sleep all six of us. The exclusive sit-out that this category of cottage offers doubles as your perch to soak in the beauty of the resort in addition to spending time together and enjoying snacks/beverages amidst natural settings. Additionally, there are a couple of independent/unreserved sit-outs within the resort for the guests occupying other accommodation types. While alcohol is not sold/served in the resort, one can enjoy a drink in the confines of the room or at the sitout. There is a small park for children within the resort that is replete with swings, hammocks, sea-saw, slides, et al. Beach-chairs are positioned at the periphery of the resort facing the water-front for that relaxing siesta/??Classic?-reading experience allowing the moist sea breeze to soothe the body, mind and soul. Ample parking space is provided within the resort premises for guest vehicles. As if symbolic to the resort?s name, swans frolic around the resort unperturbed by the human presence around. The resort provides direct access to the beach. Walk through the rear gate and down a flight of stairs to get to the beach. One can hire bicycles at nominal rates from the resort itself for a quick ride through the sleepy town or for the simple joy of cycling on the beach mesmerized by the sound of the waves lashing the shore. An array of bicycles are on offer (though not all in mint condition) for hire ranging from geared to the ungeared and in sizes suitable for all age/gender groups. You can also experience horse-riding and parasailing on the beach offered by local operators, at your own risk. Visit the 2 island forts in the vicinity - the Janjira and Kasa (Padmadurg) forts. The impregnable, oval-shaped Janjira Fort that successfully warded off multiple attacks of the mighty Maratha and the English is nothing short of an engineering marvel. It was constructed towards the end of the 17th century by Malik Amber an Abssynian minister serving the Sultan of Ahmednagar. It is rumoured that Shivaji lanched more than a dozen futile expeditions to capture the fort. The fort is spread over 22 acres of land with a 40 feet high wall and 19 towers some of which still have cannons mounted on them. The fort still houses the ruins of a mosque, a palace, a bath and a sweet-water well. A visit to the fort is a historical indulgence like none other. One can reach the main entrance of the fort by taking a short boat ride from Rajpuri Jetty. The Kasa fort was built by Sambhaji on a rock almost a mile into the sea, possibly as an attempt (vain though) to outdo the Janjira Fort. The fort lies sprawled across 8 ?? acres of land and offers visitors a brief glimpse of the fierce battles that ensued between the Siddis and the Marathas. The sight of the mighty canons still entrenched within the fort?s crumbling walls is indeed awe-inspiring. The fort is inaccessible for most of the year and the gates are opened only with prior permission from the Port Trust authorities. Visit the isolated 2km long Nandgaon beach with its sea front lined with palms. The approach to this beach is flanked by betel nut plantation and is not easily visible. While the winding, muddy road leading to the beach is not particularly impressive, the beach springs a surprise by suddenly appearing out of nowhere. Visit the nearby Siddhi Vinayak Ganesh Temple that has reportedly been in existence since 1036 AD and is thronged by devotees and tourists alike. Myth has it that the ??panchang? (Hindu calendar) is blessed by this particular Ganesha. Ahmedganj Palace ?ǣ This palace is the estate of the present Nawab of Murud but is out of bounds for unsolicited visitors. Spread across 45 acres, it reportedly has a mosque and the tombs of the previous rulers. One can however catch a glimpse of the architectural beauty of the palace from the outside. 4 kms from Murud is the 100 feet high Garambi Waterfalls ?ǣ a popular picnic spot. The water from the scenic falls is supposedly pure enough to drink. Marvel at the falls, drench yourself to the skin and listen to the thunderous roar of the water gushing down in torrents. Nestled in the woods, this cascade is a delight to behold and one can spend hours watching the beauty of nature unfolding. Situated at a distance of about 4 kms is Khokri, home to the 3 massive 500 year old stone tombs of the erstwhile rulers of Janjira ?ǣ Surul Khan, Yakut Khan and Khairiyat Khan. These tombs built in the Indo-Saracenic style fall under the auspices of the Archeological Survey of India. Sample the popular Murud sweets, coconut chikki and barfi readily available in the local markets. In case you happen to visit Murud during summer, don?t forget to buy a box of Alphonso mangoes grown within the resort, for a steal.
My advice to fellow travellers
A great place to hibernate when you desperately need that ??break? from the rigours of daily life. It offers a blend of rich historical experiences and absolute tranquility by the shores of a not-so-tempestuous sea. Don?t forget to carry your own booze if you intend staying at the Golden Swan Resort else you may have to request the house-keeping staff to source them from the local market albeit at a premium.

My views/experience about the destination
M - Magnificent A - Airy N - Nonchalant A - Arresting L - Lovely I ?ǣ indifferent We reached our hotel - Lords Regency- in the morning. After settling down, we decided to explore the in-&-around the hotel. The hotel is located approximately 0.5 kms from main town on Manali-Rohtang Pass route, with gushing Beas river on one side and calm-&-passive hills rising majestically on the other. Hotel staff was very accommodating & cooperative. And hotel - no words to explain. We had been Hadimba Devi Temple. Surrounding the temple is a forest, where you can take leisurely walk and enjoy its beauty, but of course after paying a minimal entrance fee. You can also have a glance of Angora Rabbits & Yak. The next day we had been to Rohtang pass .It was full day trip. We started early in the morning. Weather was also pleasant. One thing to keep in mind do not forget to carry heavy woolen clothes - jacket, gloves. You can even hire these on the way. But careful about quality since lot many people use them so always take precaution. If possible carry your own stuff. Best time to Visit is between March to June
My experience on food, shoping, sight seeing & things to do
Food at Manali is very good and a bit expensive. This place is dotted with German bakeries that sell delicious goodies- brownies, cheesecakes, mouthwatering, soft , sweet rolls of bread sprinkled with raisins, cinnamon and sugar, these are available in almost all the bakeries.
My advice to fellow travellers
An excellent place & highly recommended
