  • Turkey

    I left my heart behind in Turkey! Culture trails, excursions to underground cities & roman ruins, romantic beach destinations, hot-air ballooning & other adventures and mouthwatering Turkish food – all this with child friendly itinerary ideas!
  • Vietnam

    We traveled to the quaint Hanoi city and around. Cruise across Ha-long Bay, take a river ride to a Pagoda, watch colorful water puppets and walk down the quaint Old Quarter. You can immerse yourself in culture (and rice wine!) at Hanoi.
  • Thailand

    Bangkok, the beaches and more. I can help you plan a romantic getaway or a value for money holiday that your kids will love.
  • Nepal

    Experience stunning mountains, heritage temples, bustling streets, culturally rich and humble, thrifty, warm people in Kathmandu.
  • Russia

    We travelled with our daughter to Moscow, St Peterburg & the quaint village- Suzdal. Can help you explore history, cathedrals, river cruises, the Moscow Metro (and tips on learning Cyrillic), Russian circus, Russian/ Georgian/ Ukrainian food and more.
  • Dubai

    Explore the famous attractions of Dubai including going atop the Burj Khalifa and also do offbeat stuff like taking an abra ride across the Dubai creek or drive out to the other Emirates.
  • Hong Kong

    The world’s most vertical city with its urban meets the Asian experience has a host of itinerary options particularly for kids!
  • McLeod Ganj

    A mini Tibet in India – watch snow capped mountain peaks, do the Triund trek, Sip on great coffee at Shiva Café and pay your respects at the Namgyal Monastery at this spiritual and cultural town.
  • Goa

    My native hometown, I visit Goa at least once a year. I can help you discover the lesser known beaches (and the well known ones) and explore Goa beyond the beaches.
  • Agra

    There’s a lot more to Agra than just Taj Mahal. Soak in some history and then hop over to Sadar Bazaar for some tongue tickling local savouries!
  • Mumbai

    Having being born and brought up in Mumbai, I am a true-blue Mumbai-ite. I can help you explore Mumbai’s food jaunts, attractions and weekend getaways.

Thailand: Bangkok, Phuket and Koh Samui in 18 nights

We have a family group of 15 adults and 3 kids for a long vacation in Thailand. 4 days in bangkok, 7 in Phuket and 7 in Koh Samui. We have booked villas in all places but wanted help sourcing Gujrati chefs for our meals. Also needed ideas on things to do.

One day in Dharamsala/McLeodGanj

I'm a solo female traveling to Dharamshala on April 30. From May 1, I start a meditation course in Dharamkot (about 1.5km from McLeodGanj town centre). So I will have about 24 hours to spend in McLeodGanj. I'd like help with planning what to do in this time and choosing a place to stay that is safe and comfortable (expensive is ok). I like shopping for local handicrafts, eating at interesting places (I'm vegetarian), and would like to do anything else that is interesting here.

Nazeema's Wanderlust 1 - Honeymoon

Hi Deepti

I'm planning for my honeymoon trip to Thailand from the 14th to 19th of June, 2015. I've done my bit of research in terms of asking around, collating info from different sources and coming up with a rough idea of how I plan to spend our days in Thailand. I'm planning to spend 4 night in Phuket and 1 night in Bangkok (optional).

Here's a gist of my the rough plan:

14th start from Chennai and reach Phuket by 9.10am, via Bangkok ( I have the flight details).
Spend the rest of the day relaxing, leisure at the patong beach, looking around and retiring early to bed. (Open to your suggestion)
15th -  phi phi Island tour, whole day
16th - open agenda (open to your suggestion)
17th - James Bond island (open to your suggestion)
18th - morning flight to Bangkok. Shopping in Bangkok and seeing ariund OR Evening flight to Chennai via Bangkok
19th - visit the aquarium and pack up for night flight back to chennai

I have booked my hotel at C & N Hotel: 151 Rat-U-ThitSongRoiPi Rd., Patong Beach, Phuket, Patong Beach, 83150, Thailand

My budget for both of us is around 80k (including everything and not exceeding this). We are non vegeterians who opt for only Halal food, else veg works as well.

I'd need the following support:

1. Put this in an itinerary format

2. Suggestion on any other hotel (if required), based on your experience

3. We'd like to explore the beaches, island, any calm picturesque place

4. Is Bangkok worth visiting? (with the budget in mind)

5. Places to eat

6. Sources to book the local phi phi island tour and james bond tour and the approx price

7. Anything else you think we should know :)


Look forward to your response.
