In Praise of Mediocrity
Review of Himachal State Museum, Shimla by koshkha

Advantages: Plenty of 'stuff' to see
Disadvantages: Not the most imaginative of displays

Set your expectations accordingly Like many of India's cities, Shimla has a rather second rate museum. To be fair, India's not that great at the whole museum thing although I fear that a lot of that's the fault of the British. In Victorian and Edward ... Read review

Hostel that provides a hotel service!
Review of Backpackers Hostel K's House, Kyoto by Anti_W

Advantages: Clean rooms and communal areas, English-speaking and knowledgable staff, central location in Kyoto
Disadvantages: None for me!

Since just flying to Japan was expensive in itself, I certainly did not want to splash out on luxurious accommodation for our trip, so my cousin and I looked at hostels in Tokyo and Kyoto. The key things I looked for were low price, a fairly central locat ... Read review
