Travel tips for visiting Golden Triangle in India

Interested in visiting Golden Triangle in India by yourself and don’t know how and where to start?

If you haven’t visited India before, you need to prepare yourself for quite a rollercoaster, trust me. HOW MANY DAYS YOU NEED FOR VISITING GOLDEN TRIANGLE On the map it will seem like you can do the Golden Triangle within 3 days, but the reality is a bit different. First of all, the traffic in India is something beyond your imagination and you can easily spend 6 hours for just over 200 kilometers’ drive. There are a lot of agencies […]

Hotel review: Crystal Sarovar Premiere (Agra, India)

I was told that when it comes to India, you should stick to 5-star hotels for several reasons: they are safe, they are clean and you don’t have to worry about getting stomach problems because of food and kitchen hygiene. Since we only had 4 days to spend on our Golden Triangle trip (and the roads in India are definitely not a joyride if you are having digestion issues) we decided not to take the risk and went for 5-star hotels during the whole trip, including Agra. I chose Crystal Sarovar Premiere hotel because of good recommendations, proximity to the grand Taj Mahal and a decent price, which included breakfast and free Wi-Fi. Location First let me say there is probably no […]

Maldives Fairytale

Ah, Maldives. What can be said about this tropical paradise that hasn’t already been written? Or better yet, are words even enough to describe this heaven on Earth? Well, for one thing – every island is a little bit different and each traveler has his own idea of paradise. I have visited Maldives 3 times and I can say with no doubt in my mind that I will keep coming back. After all I have added the islands in my travel favorites list. Because Maldives represent everything that a beach lover like me needs to recover from everyday stress I have to put up with. SHORT INTRODUCTION Maldives lie in the middle of Indian Ocean, southwest of India, comprising a […]

Sanjski Maldivi – nasveti za brezskrbne počitnice

“Kako spet Maldivi, a nisi tam že bila?” in “Pa kaj vidiš na teh Maldivih, a ni tam en sam dolgčas?” sta tipična komentarja prijateljev, ko izvejo, da grem “spet” tja. Ko kasneje na družbenih omrežjih objavim kakšno fotografijo, se plošča hitro obrne: “Packa, ti na plaži, pri nas pa kidamo!”, “Kako sem ti fouš, uživaj še zame!” in “Koliko pa stane en teden na Maldivih? Jaz bi tudi!”. Okusi so seveda različni in tudi žepi niso vedno dovolj globoki, da bi si lahko privoščili pobeg v ta mali raj sredi Indijskega oceana. Če pa koga vseeno zamika in želi Maldive obiskati še preden izginejo (zaradi podnebnih sprememb naj bi bila večina otokov pod vodo do leta 2100), sem pripravila […]

Resort review: Royal Island Resort & Spa (Baa Atoll, Maldives)

We visited Maldives in combination with India’s Golden Triangle for my birthday in February. Since this was my 3rd time to visit the islands, I knew exactly what I wanted: 1. air transfer to the island, 2. all-inclusive option with Wi-Fi and fitness facilities, 3. private beach villa with sea-view, 4. an island big enough to have a decent walk around it and 5. reef sharks – I am in love with the little beasts. Royal Island Resort & Spa seemed to have it all so I booked a 6 nights vacation through a travel agency which has helped me with my last Maldives booking. LOCATION AND GETTING THERE Royal Island Resort & Spa is a five star resort located in the […]
