Bayon Temple: Uncovering the Enigma of The Smiling God

It was a sunny morning in Siem Reap. After much of a bargaining with the tuk-tuk driver, he finally started off to see the Khmer empire. At first, it looked like I was entering some top notch university campus. Rows of trees, neatly arranged, lined up on both sides of a large road, and lush green grass carpeted the ground beneath the trees. At a distance, the moat looked like a huge lake. Tourists were already scattered around the monuments, with guides and guide books in hand - inspecting the sculptures, looking at the stupendous structures and being transfixed by the sheer opulence and the beauty.

Chiang Rai – The Little Known Scenic City of Thailand

After having been here before and ticking off the overcrowded touristy places like the province of Phuket, Pattaya and the bustling Bangkok, I wanted to explore the unseen Thailand this time. And I started off with the one which I'd in mind for quite long, Chiang Mai. Moving further took me to Chiang Rai, a scenic city amidst the mountains. It is a city which has that eclectic charm of the countryside, but still embraces the modernisation with an equal flair.

Chiang Mai Sunday Market & Walking Street – Of Food, Souvenirs & Arts

 Luckily, Chiang Mai had a lot in store for me when I happened to land there on an idyllic Sunday morning after boarding a bus overnight from Bangkok.Chiang Mai had already charmed me with its lively air, with travelers, especially the backpackers, bustling in the city. The day got better when I got to know that Chiang Mai Sunday Market would be happening! So the Sunday's are super special in Chiang Mai, for the city looks more vibrant, lively and packed - the key attraction being the popular Sunday Market and the Walking Street.

Tiger's Nest: A Trek to the Monastery of the Talking Buddha

"He is called as the talking Buddha and this is his temple" pointed out the guide pointing to the temple of Guru Rinpoche at the corner, at Tiger's Nest.

Still recuperating from a steep climb to reach the Tiger's nest at an altitude of 3100 m, I'd bumped into this English speaking local guide, who's accompanied an old English man. He'd volunteered to guide me around the temple.

Photo Stories: Capturing Phobjikha, The Idyllic Town of Bhutan

It was a beautiful evening  when I got the first look of Phobjikha valley or otherwise called as Gangtey. The town looked idyllic, serene and picturesque like the rest of Bhutan and I saw a lot of people in the streets, something uncommon in the sparsely populated country of Bhutan.

I wanted to have a look at a day in the life of people here and so asked Pema, the cheerful driver to pull over the car. Hoping out of the car with my camera, I set out onto the streets enjoying the pleasant breeze passing over my face.

He told me that we would be going to a home stay after this. Instead of longing for a soft bed and a hot cup of tea after a long drive, I was more thrilled in strolling through the streets of Phobjikha somehow.

Entering Bhutan - How To Reach Bhutan From India

This post is about how to reach Bhutan from India,where I attempt to update with the latest information so that it would help you, if you're planning to visit Bhutan.

The people of Bhutan have high consideration for the people of India, Maldives and Bangladesh. Because, we people don't need a Visa to visit Bhutan. But, yes a special permit is needed to enter the country as a tourist. For the tourists of the rest of the world, there would be a visa process and the same has to be done through a travel agent. But, Indians can do by themselves, to get a permit free of cost.

Ubud: A Town That Reflects the Tradition of Bali

The first thing that caught my attention on our drive to Ubud, from Nusa Dua in Bali were the lush green farms on either side of the roads. It looked so much like those fields back home. Cultivation is the prominent source of Income for the people of Ubud, after the handicraft industry of course.

To me Ubud look like a total contradiction from the other wise pompous places in Bali, like Denpasar or Nusa Dua. It was serene and the country side look of the town itself imposed a sense of rejuvenating feeling. We were greeted by the sight of locals going about farming on their lands and women doing the chores outside their homes. What caught my eyes particularly were the temples that spanned beside the streets.
