Baddi in Himachal Pradesh (India) ~ A day trip to Tractor town of himalayan state

I spent one day in Baddi in Himachal Pradesh (India) on a work trip recently and came away quite surprised. Most travelers asociate this beautiful himalayan state with mountains, glaciers and natural beauty. However, it was a big 'industrial' and 'development' side to it too.
Baddi is one of the key 'Industrial' belts of the state and lot of medium and small scale industries are located here. It is famously known as 'Tractor town' of India.
Sharing with you some of my images from the Baddi trip

Rishikesh in Uttarakhand (India) ~ Travel moments from a weekend family break

I love Rishikesh (uttarakhand, India) for the variety of travel experiences it offers. One can go for adventure activities, spiritual/physical rejuvination or just relax & rewind. I took a weekend break with family in Rishikesh to get away from both our crazy work schedules and spend undivided time with our toddler in a secluded property in Rishikesh (read details here).
Sharing some of the travel moments with readers here.

Mansa Devi Temple in Haridwar ~ Travel notes from a pilgrimage tour

Mansa Devi temple in Haridwar is a revered Hindu pilgrimage site in Haridwar, Uttarakhand, India.  Haridwar is an ancient town and a prime pilgrimage destination for Hindus and has many temples, of which Mansa Devi is one of the primary piths (or pilgrimages). Therefore, it sees busy footfalls all-round the year.  Haridwar also happens to be my second home and I keep visiting it once in 2 months atleast (read my previous posts here, here and here). This time around, we planned to visit Mansa Devi Temple, as I was somehow feeling a spiritual pull (which I could not pinpoint); my husband was feeling the same and so on an early morning, we visited the Mansa Devi Temple.
I am sharing my travel notes for the benefit of religious traveler or anyone wanting to visit the Mansa Devi temple when in Haridwar.

The Glasshouse on the Ganges (by Neemrana Hotels) at Rishikesh, Uttarakhand ~ Hotel Review

Post monsoons, it was time for a family break (after all my work trips!!) and since we have a toddler , the choice was a secluded destination which would not require us to drive too much. After much discussions, we decided on a weekend stay at  'The glasshouse on The Ganges' propety by Neemrana Group, which is located  in a relatively private part of Rishikesh, away from the main town. It was overall good experience for the family, with small hiccups.
Here is my review of our family weekend break  'The Glasshouse on The Ganges' at Rishikesh.

An Easter Holiday in Cambodia ~ Chronicle of a short holiday in the Khmer country

This is Guest Post by my friend Payal Biswas who is a resident of Hong Kong and the regular guest writer of Hong Kong Chapter on this blog.

This year during Easter break I went to Cambodia for a holiday. Cambodia is one of the South-Asian countries that I find intriguing. Not because of the political upheaval and civil war of the recent past but of the magnificence Khmer temples, Khmer culture and the history.

Like the average tourist I wanted to see the splendour of the Angkor Wat. Partially because their culture and architecture is majorly influenced by India.  We only had limited days so we decided to visit Phnom Penh and Siem Reap (gateway to the Angkor temples and ruins).
