Diamond review   Getting To Know Baku
Review of Baku, Azerbaijan by Essexgirl2006

Advantages: Am up and coming developing city
Disadvantages: Not as much to offer as some other oil-rich cities

Last summer I visited Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan for a little over a week. It may sound like an unusual choice but I had family members working out there on a three year contract, so took the opportunity to go and see them and explore a region I was ... Read review

Get High With Us
Review of Avia Club Nepal, Pokhara by hiker

Advantages: Awesome flying experience among the most beautiful mountains in the world
Disadvantages: None - unless you're too picky to deserve to do this.

Getting High with the Russian Now obviously if you're going to Kathmandu, or anywhere in Nepal for that matter, you've got to be a trifle wary of any firm whose tagline is Get High With Us When you realise that you're going to be getting high wi ... Read review

Sun over Shimla
Review of Cafe Sol, Shimla by koshkha

Advantages: Great views, clean setting, wide menu, good staff and fair prices
Disadvantages: You can eat cheaper and more authentic than Cafe Sol

Shimla in Perspective The Indian Himalayan city of Shimla is one of the most accessible cities in the mountains and so very popular with tourists, mostly Indian, but also international. It's known as one of the honeymoon hotspots of the country - coup ... Read review

I like the look of that. Interesting isn't it? We think nothing of eating Asian food at home but feel guilty for eating European food abroad. I reckon I can normally go about 10 days, but then I crave fish and chips, or a bacon sandwich... I wouldn't go that long in the UK without wanting something Thai- or Chinese- or Indian inspired. by hiker

The Shop is my Favourite Shop in Delhi
Review of The Shop, Delhi by koshkha

Advantages: Fantastic service, lovely products, great prices
Disadvantages: It's a long way to go to buy more

Finding the will to shop at ‘the Shop’ I first discovered ‘The Shop’ in Delhi five years ago and each time I’ve been back to Delhi since then, I’ve hunted it down. That might sound like a strange thing to say, but believe me, trying to find a place ca ... Read review

A Cold Coffee Paradise and a Vegetarian Nightmare
Review of Keventer's, Darjeeling by koshkha

Advantages: The cold coffee is outstanding
Disadvantages: The fry-ups look pretty scary to me

Introducing Keventers Keventers is a cafe. Keventers is a greasy-spoon diner. Keventers is a take away bakery and deli. But most of all, Keventers is a landmark and a Darjeeling ‘institution’. If you don’t know Keventers, then you don’t know Darje ... Read review

Disadvantages: No garden, no outdoor space, icy receptionist

...I know which areas of the cities I want to stay and where I need to be to see what I want to see but the one big gap in my experience was Kolkata. In nearly 20 years of going to India I’d ... Read review

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 didn’t 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 shouldn’t do lightly. It’s 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 Kathmandu… 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

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
