It's not orange and it's not a village. But it's great.
Review of Orange Village Resort, Gangtok by koshkha

Advantages: Fantastic food, wonderful rooms, amazing views
Disadvantages: Service can be a bit muddled and it's a long way out of town

Oranges and Lemons Last October we took a tour of West Bengal and Sikkim and one of the places we visited twice was the Sikkimese capital of Gangtok. We were due to stay in the same hotel both times but things didnít go as planned. Thanks to a hiccup ... Read review

Mustang Gateway
Review of Kagbeni, Upper Mustang, Nepal by hiker

Advantages: A necessary stop-over that manages to be pleasant enough if you stay in the right place
Disadvantages: Already at risk of losing its charm

If you're trekking in Upper Mustang in northern Nepal, you're almost certain to stop in Kagbeni. It's just half an hour by jeep from the airport at Jomsom. I should say that sadly in future most people will arrive by jeep. Sadly because there is ... Read review

Lakeside Lodge Below Fishtail Mountain
Review of Fishtail Lodge, Pokhara by hiker

Advantages: Location and style
Disadvantages: Don't expect great things of the food

The thing about travel, the kind of travel you do for pleasure or for the thrill of it, is that you never know whether you'll ever be back. In most cases when I've been somewhere I've loved to bits, it's been at least partly because I never expected to f ... Read review

A hotel that's a long way from everywhere.
Review of Yarlam Resort, Lachung, North Sikkim by koshkha

Advantages: Total peace and quiet and isolation - great if that's what you want
Disadvantages: Total peace and quiet and isolation - hell on earth if you can't survive without wifi.

A Journey to the End of the World Deciding to go to the north Sikkim town (and I use the word lightly) of Lachung is something you shouldnít do lightly. Itís a very long way from everywhere else, it takes a heck of a long time to get there and the roa ... Read review

Scratching The Surface of Kathmandu
Review of Kathmandu & Kathmandu Valley (Nepal) by hiker

Advantages: It's another world: vibrant and alive
Disadvantages: It might not live up to the dream

Once upon a time There's a little yellow idol to the north of KathmanduÖ Like many people (I'm guessing) that was where I first heard of the place. My Dad was a stoker in the merchant marine back in the 1950s and on the long trips in the Gu ... Read review

Boracay Nightlife, better than the Cities
Review of General: Boracay (The Philippines) by lightning1992

Advantages: peaceful, beautiful scenery, nightlife(if you're young)
Disadvantages: hard to get to,nightlife(if you're old)

Boracay has been world renowed as one of the best places to visit here in the Philippines because of its fine white sand beach. I must admit that when I went there, it wasn't what I was expecting. I always thought that except for the sand, it was just ... Read review

Not quite Disneyland The tiny Himalayan town of Pelling in the state of Sikkim is not overly blessed with world-class attractions. Thatís not a problem because you donít go there expecting Disneyland; you go for the views, the mountain air, and to es ... Read review

This airport, in my opinion is one of the best in the world. The airport spans a large amount of space so there is inevitably the possibility of the drag of having to make a long journey to make it to international departures. This however, is not really ... Read review
