by Travelbag on 01 June 2015, 16:06PM India- The Spice Lands India, the seventh biggest country in the world has something for everyone. The spice lands of Kerala are a great introduction to the region. After you land in Cochin, the most cosmopolitan city in the region, you will visit the Matancherry Dutch Palace, confusingly built by the Portuguese, a Jewish synagogue and St Francis Church, before relaxing in the evening by watching a traditional Kathakali dance show and retiring to one of three hotels of your choosing; the Avenue Regent, Trident or Vivanta by Taj. Thekkady is next on the agenda, located in the ‘Heart of God’s Own Country’ and close to the coffee and spice plantations nearby, as well as Periyar forest, home to some of India’s main wildlife reserves. The evening’s entertainment will come in the form...

Food for thought

Carla ter Maat finds that Luang Prabang in Laos is a place to feed the soul. I had a very clear image in my mind about what Luang Prabang would be like – it was more a premonition than through research, and in fact and I wasn’t far wrong. The sense of calm, serenity and peace, as though I had arrived at a very holy place, pervaded the air, even as I departed the plane. Luang Praban...

Olly's Asia adventure

Olly's Asia adventure

Holed up in a Ho Chi Minh street-side café, slurping (unashamedly loudly) my way through a bowl of noodles and casually spectating at the fast-paced sport that is Vietnamese daily life, I plot my next move.It’s a trickier task than it sounds because as soon as I step into the sea of pedestrians and motorcyclists, I am committed to participating in the game – no time for second t...

A Thailand trip of a lifetime with Amari

A Thailand trip of a lifetime with Amari
