Beach Life - Mumbai Style
Review of Novotel, Mumbai (Bombay) by koshkha

Advantages: Great location, fabulous breakfast, nice staff
Disadvantages: Our taxi driver had never heard of the Novotel

Life’s a Beach For our trip to India in 2013, we started and ended our holiday in Mumbai. This wasn’t out of any particular desire to stay in the city (super though it is) but out of a wish to use up a load of British Airways Avios at a time of year ... Read review

Dalhousie in the Mountains
Review of Dalhousie, India by koshkha

Advantages: Peaceful with great views and clean air
Disadvantages: Not exactly world-class sightseeing

What's in a Name? If I try to explain why I wanted to go to Dalhousie in Himachal Pradesh, I struggle. If I'm entirely honest, I didn't really know what was there or whether it was worth visiting; I just liked the name. My first big travel adventure ... Read review

A thousand times better than a motorway service station
Review of Restaurant Hotel Tamarind, Mangan by koshkha

Advantages: Clean restaurant, fast service and great food
Disadvantages: I can't help wondering where the driver and guide ate

No, no! Not the packed lunch Sikkim is India’s least populated state with just over 600,000 inhabitants. It’s also quite small but what looks like a small distance on a map can be a long way on Himalayan mountain roads. The route from the capital city ... Read review

Zero Point - as close to the Chinese army as you'll want to get
Review of Yumesamdong Zero Point, Lachung by koshkha

Advantages: A unique experience - really
Disadvantages: Not for the travel sick or small children.

Snow Harm in Asking If I asked you to suggest what we might do on a day out in India, my guess is that you’d either suggest a trip to a temple or a museum or to go shopping. Maybe if we were by the coast, you’d suggest a trip to the sea. All good ide ... Read review

Let the good times (and good bread) roll!
Review of Au Bon Pain, Kolkata (Calcutta) by koshkha

Advantages: Extensive range of international choices, great staff, super building
Disadvantages: My hummus wrap could have done with less cabbage

Curry Overload There will be readers who will shake their heads in disbelief when they read that it is actually possible to get bored of eating curry. I know, sounds unlikely doesn’t it, but halfway through a three week trip in India the urge can com ... Read review

Lounging around in Chennai
Review of Courtyard by Marriott, Chennai by koshkha

Advantages: Good room, great bed, great staff and excellent lounge
Disadvantages: Not very 'Indian'

What do Points mean? Hotel Nights For last year’s trip to India I booked a very varied bunch of hotels. The first two were old favourites - places we’d been before and knew we’d love. The third in Kolkata was our ‘blow out’ hotel - a place that would ... Read review

Fantastic review! That's so strange of them to call to tell you about overcharging you, particularly to say that they can't do anything about it. You have to admire their honesty but surely there must have been some way to rectify their mistake... sounds like very good service though. Lora x by lora44

The Dead Centre of 18th Century British India
Review of South Park Street Cemetery, Kolkata by koshkha

Advantages: An amazing one of a kind place
Disadvantages: It can get very hot - but so can everything in Kolkata

Kolkata-bound In nearly 20 years of going to India, there was one big hole in my coverage of the country - a big Kolkata-shaped hole. Kolkata suffers from two issues that make it less popular with tourists - three if you count the association people ... Read review

What's a girl got to do to get a beer round here?
Review of Shangri-La Restaurant, Darjeeling by koshkha

Advantages: Great food
Disadvantages: Bizarre beer rituals

Fishing for a Kingfisher One thing that might surprise you about the fabulous Himalayan town of Darjeeling is that it can be really quite difficult to get an alcoholic drink. Tea? No problem - there’s a lot of that about. Bottled water and soft drink ... Read review

Disadvantages: Allows smoking in the cafe

Show me the pandas! Ever since we’d booked our flights to go to Darjeeling, there had been one key ‘must do’ on our list and that was to return to the town’s amazing zoo and hang out with the red pandas. The zoo is always closed on Thursdays so we d ... Read review

Review of Baghsu Waterfall, Dharamsala by koshkha

Advantages: A rare chance for peace and quiet and good exercise
Disadvantages: Not a particularly spectacular waterfall.

McLeod Ganj The town of McLeod Ganj is just up the hill from Dharamsala in the Indian Himalaya. Whilst most people think that the Dalai Lama’s home in exile is in Dharamsala, it’s actually McLeodganj where his temple and his home are and where most t ... Read review

Disadvantages: None - don't be shy, the Sikh religion welcomes everyone

Top Two I have two favourite restaurants in New Delhi. One is a place called Zen on Connaught Place that I’ve been going to for more than a decade and have reviewed here before. The other is still fairly new and we’ve only been twice. It’s called Naiv ... Read review

Is Ninoy Aquino International the Worse Airport
Review of Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Metro Manila Philippines (NAIA) by BESTRESULTS

Advantages: Easy location, Good buses, Baggage area good, Wif Fi possible
Disadvantages: Little Staff, Basic ammenities in parts, Immigration long queues, Security checks poor

I have used this airport thirty times over ten years and although it is often voted the worse airport in Aia and rates low in the world, it can be OK. The problems start when arriving as the Taxi traffic is horrible, and Manila is full of Taxi drivers who ... Read review
