New Flights

Singapore Airlines offers more travel options with five new flights out of India. Now there will be 55 weekly services from its eight destinations in India, including 10 weekly services from Chennai and Bangalore each.

On Wheels Of History

Polished wooden seats, lovely brass handles, old-fashioned light-bulbs, leather hang-straps, rich felt screens beneath the seat…it certainly feels like I’ve travelled back in time.

Call Of The Falls

Karnataka is famous for its falls and the twin falls of Shivasamudram attract tourists in plenty. After a season of good rains the falls are in fine form.

The Scotland Of The East!

It’s such an unassuming place that you will feel humbled being there. Meghalaya has innumerable ‘heavens on earth’ yet it doesn’t go bragging.

Travel Deals

Kingfisher Airlines has launched an SMS-based ticketing service called Flybuysms across all mobile networks in India, in association with PayMate.

Chance Encounter

Imagine getting stranded in the middle of nowhere. My car breaks down on a long narrow potholed road that winds its way through acres and acres of paddy fields.

Invitation To Dream

With a richly endowed land, Kerala Tourism Department has a lot going for it straightaway.

In Meditative Mode

Temples today are surrounded by concrete structures. But there was a time when places of worship and Nature co-existed beautifully.

Deal Of The Week

The Grand Nirvana Lake Resort situated on National Highway 47 is 16 km. from Alleppey and 65 km. from the Cochin International Airport.

Classic Rock

A. L. Basham’s book “The Wonder That Was India” may not be the most authentic or exhaustive account on ancient India. Many contest the historian’s conclusions.

A Trip To Remember

Sometimes, a memorable trip is more about the people you meet en route than the place itself. And, the government seems to be realising that too.

Deal: Bali This Month

How about booking a trip to Bali this month? Enjoy the spas, the resorts, the Barong dance performed by the locals, and the beautiful wooden carvings and spa furniture you can bring back, all very affordable.

Dykes, Windmills And Flower Fields

I joined my husband on a business trip to Zwolle, the Netherlands, recently. And looking back, I’m glad I did.

Where Boats And The Beautiful People Linger

All my life I had fantasised over the Cote d’Azur or ‘‘the blue coast’’ that forms the French Mediterranean, even hoped to visit the ultimate resort of the rich and famous.

Call Of The Falls

Karnataka is famous for its falls and the twin falls of Shivasamudram attract tourists in plenty. After a season of good rains the falls are in fine form.

The Singapore Saga

For the discerning world voyager, Singapore is a unique city brimming with state-of-the-art modernity and an interesting blend of culture, tradition and architecture.

Chance Encounter

Imagine getting stranded in the middle of nowhere. My car breaks down on a long narrow potholed road that winds its way through acres and acres of paddy fields.

Ladakh's Lofty Passes

Located in northwest India’s Jammu and Kashmir state, the remote Ladakh astounds first-time visitors with its surreal landscape – craggy peaks, barren deserts, plunging gorges, turquoise-green rivers and a backdrop of ancient gompas . . . .
