Review of Wagha Border Ceremony, Amritsar by catsholiday

Advantages: Something unique and highly entertaining
Disadvantages: All the security checks and pat downs

Wagah Ceremony On our most recent holiday my husband and I did a tour with Great Rail journeys which included Amritsar, Delhi, Agra and Varanasi. The tour started in Amritsar and our first visit on the day we arrived from the UK via Delhi was to this comp ... Read review

Moments on Manali Mall
Review of The Mall, Manali by koshkha

Advantages: Lots to see in a short distance
Disadvantages: Not so much you'll actually want to buy

Part of the British legacy Many Indian cities have a street called ‘Mall Road’ or 'The Mall' and Manali is no exception. I cannot be sure, but my assumption is that it’s a generic term referring to a pedestrian street with only very limited vehicular ... Read review

Flying Lamas, Scaffolding and Computer Games
Review of Enchey Monastery, Gangtok by koshkha

Advantages: It's a privilege to visit a working monastery
Disadvantages: The renovation work made things a little tricky

Find your Monastery The day we spent sightseeing in the Sikkimese capital, Gangtok was a very full one and my head was spinning by the end of the day after seeing so many different things. The second stop - after the Handloom and Crafts Centre that I ... Read review

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

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

Hot Stuff!
Review of Hot Stimulating Cafe, Darjeeling by koshkha

Advantages: Cheap and fun. Fantastic momos
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

Is this where the Dalai Lama does his laundry?
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

Advantages: Fabulous architecture, great tourist 'lounge', beautiful experience
Disadvantages: None - don't be shy, the Sikh religion welcomes everyone

Divine Inspiration We have been to Delhi so many times that we’re running out of new things to see and do and have been revisiting old favourites. The small hotel where we usually stay in Old Delhi is a short walk from the enormous Jameh Mosque, India ... Read review
