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

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

Delhi's Friendliest Temple
Review of Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, New Delhi by koshkha

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

Southern Temple Food in Delhi's Swanky Village
Review of Naivedyam Restaurant, New Delhi by koshkha

Advantages: Wonderful food in beautiful surroundings at great prices
Disadvantages: Not so easy to get to and a bit off the standard tourist beaten track

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

Holy Snacks and Drinks, Batman
Review of Big Ben Restaurant, Haridwar by koshkha

Advantages: Good cheap food and near to the station
Disadvantages: Smelly toilets and fierce air conditioning

A long way off the tourist trail The northern Indian city of Haridwar is not one that many international tourists tend to visit although it’s massively popular with Indians making pilgrimages. It is one of Hinduism’s most holy cities and one of the l ... 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
