When we were invited to stay at Narendra Bhawan, Bikaner, the itinerary included a few curated experiences to showcase the best of Bikaner to us. Among these, was a chance to see the Bikaner Havelis on the Merchant’s Trail. The very name brought to mind images of flowing silk, heavy bundles of wool, perhaps even spices, camels, and wealthy merchants that were favoured by the Maharaja. Turns out we weren’t
If it wasn’t for Narendra Bhawan, Bikaner would probably have never featured on our India travel list. While the state of Rajasthan most certainly is, it’s the usual suspects that feature on the list – Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Udaipur. Charles has visited Jaipur and Jaisalmer several times thanks to his day job, and I’ve been to Jaipur on a shoot myself. But we’ve never really visited as tourists or travellers.

Charles has just returned from a 10-day wellness trip to Kerala, and he can’t stop gushing about it.

Beachbum has probably been at the top of Charles’ “What he wants to be when he grows up” list. So naturally, we’re constantly on the lookout for secret beaches whenever we travel around the world. But over the years, our travel radar has realised that we needn’t look for some splendid, pristine and beautiful beaches outside of India, because there are some hidden in our very own country. The 5
We’ve been to Singapore a few times over the years, and whilst our last trip involved just a quick whirlwind trip during a layover with Singapore Airlines, it was fun seeing some of the top spots in Singapore once again. Here are some of them to keep in mind. For when you go ahead with your flight booking, you will want to try to find some time in Singapore.
It’s often been said, India is a country like no other. It’s a bunch of nations within a nation, when it comes to the food, culture and overall experience to be had. No wonder then, that choosing hotels in India can be a tricky task, since it comes with its own set of quirks and nuances that probably don’t hold true across the world. Since it’s our home country, we
Hong Kong is much more than a bunch of Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan movies and electronics. Really! You wouldn’t believe that there are so many different things to do. No, we are not talking about Disneyland either. We will cover the alternative activities for your Hong Kong trip in another blog. In this blog, we want to point out a few things which will help you plan your Trip to Hong
Pench Tiger Reserve isn’t the simplest terrain. After zipping around in what I imagined to be a haphazard and aimless manner across the National Park for a long time, I soon realised there was a method to the Pugdundee Safari guide’s madness. He knew just the spots to check, and was working his way through them in the order of probability of the tiger being there. The safari vehicles we’d
