This is a small post shared by Mr Singh of ChetramVoyages.in in some amazing resorts which he and his tour operator firm suggest to all travelers and holiday seekers planning to explore Pink City Jaipur. So lets go… Read more
Well I was on Quora.com [travel section] and this question really catched my eye “Which are the safe places for a 19 year old girl to travel in India alone” and I though hey this might be the next post for my travel blog.
So I made some calls and dropped some emails with the same question and the answer was “every city in dangerous if you are afraid to travel”
Well but still my favorite cities to explore in India are Mumbai, New Delhi and the city of Nawabs, Hyderabad. So in this post I want to share some tips which a solo traveler, in this case 19 year olds should apply to be safe even in big metropolitan.
Tip no 1 :- Prefer Bluechip hotels and travel agents
Here ther term bluechip means “trusted” firms. Lets take an example. If I have to choose a hotel in Delhi and I mean that I am travelling to Delhi for the 1st time then I will:-
- View sites like Tripadvisor, as theyr top 100 hotels, whether they are budget or luxury are some of the safest and trusted ones in a city which has more then 5o,ooo accommodation options.
- After finalizing the hotel or any accommodation option I would like to see whether those hotels are active on social media or not. Like have a look at the below screenshot of Radisson Blu Marina in CP, New Delhi. They have 15000 fb likes and more then 40 reviews, mostly positive.
So if you are staying at such hotels, don’t worry about safety. Plus if you ask me the names of some good hotel then I will suggest:-
- Hotel Ashoka at Chanakyapuri, Delhi
- Ahuja Residency in Sunder nagar
- Hotel Pitrashish Pride near terminal 3 of Delhi International Airport
- ITC Sheraton at Saket, Delhi
Tip 2 – Safer transportation
Well I never like to travel in a bus or joint Taxi when I am in a foreign city and the same suggestion I will offer to all. Well taxi in India is still one of the cheaper mode of transportation. I mean you can get a taxi in Delhi fir INR 8 per km thats like INR 1000 per day.
But the question comes how to choose or find a safer taxi firm… Again lets move towards Tripadvisor. For example I want to book a taxi firm which is highly rated and more important local. Steps are :-
- Just search “Things to do in City A”
- Now you will have a mix list of attractions, mostly tourist attraction
- But you will also have some Tour firm…
And here you have. Some trusted local cab or travel firms…
Tip 3 – Eat wisely
Now when I say eat wisely I mean a very simple and some of you might curse me, like “Man…. really you tjink we don’t know that”… well is some one is asking such foolish question then I have to act as a fool..
“Don’t eat from strangers”
Check our the below video and you will understand what I am talking about
So I will close this post just by saying ine thing. People are not bad and thus no city can be rated as R. Its people who makes mistakes and tend to rate other as dangerous. Be courageous if you want to be a traveler and even plan to explore the scariest destination in the world.
Every wants something different!
I mean a groom on his last day of bachelorhood sometimes say that he want some think different. But thats not our concern.

Today post is brought to you CB Singh from Jaipur India. Singh is a GM at a resort on jaipur highway and he has more than 14 year of experience in working at hotels & resorts like Taj and Le Meridian Jaipur. Today he wants to share a post on Indian corporate travellers and those destinations which are like heaven for 9 to 5 office workers. So lets give the stage to Singh.
People from the corporate world find it a little bit discouraging to have less time wandering around places other than facing the computers for hours in a day and doing nothing else in between. This is why it is necessary to take a leave for even just a few days and enjoy the natural beauty of the surroundings, hook up with the internet right now and search for these fine cities for corporate dudes to visit.
Enjoy taking a trip seeing old forts and palaces, and enjoy the natural beauty of Jaipur with vintage cars, there are organized car rallies for an entire year. For a heart pounding experience, try riding a Hot Air Balloon the old fashioned way which can be arranged for anyone wanting to ride it.
For a princely feel, try staying at Jai Mahal Palace where lush greeneries and beautiful garden invigorate and rejuvenate the mind. Another great place is the Taj Rambagh Palace voted as a traveler’s choice for its nice scenery and architectural design.
The Dal Lake is a nice place to start in Srinagar because of its majestic view of the ice capped Pir Panjal Mountains. Try riding shikaras, the taxi boats looking like a gondola painted beautifully and available around the lake. An adventurous experience would be a trek to the Shankarachaya Temple to get a glimpse of the city’s old and new landscape.
Kharpalace Group of House Boats is definitely the best accommodation for corporate dudes for a good lake view or stay at the Vivanta by Taj Dal View because of its luxurious and elegant interiors as well as beautiful Dal Lake view.
The best place to start in Shimla is the Viceregal lodge that’s been converted as Indian Institute of Advanced Studies that has beautiful buildings and lawns that are well maintained. A walk at the Mall is of cultural interest; get to experience up close and personal what it’s like living in Shimla while walking around this place.
A stay at the Parasol Camps and Retreat is an experience worth a second try, a must lodge for adventure sucking dudes. The Oberoi Cecil Shimla is different as one can taste luxury and comfort while staying in at one of its rooms.
Darjeeling is a perfect place to visit for outdoorsy type of personality. The Himalayan Zoological Park and the Snow Leopard Breeding Center are good value for money to take a trip here, get to enjoy local faunas up close and personal. Tiger Hill can also be a good place to visit as well.
Mayfair Darjeeling is a nice place to stay feeling like a royalty because of its location, interiors, amenities, and services; truly a wonderful experience. Cedar Inn is for the budget conscious but does not take out the necessary requirement of scenic landscape as backdrop while sipping a cup of tea and awesome architectural design of the hotel.
Goa is all about beaches, so take a trip at the Agonda Beach, the best beach in Goa to enjoy the waves, the sun and the sand. Another adventure trail is the Dudhsagar Falls, swim into the water with koi carps, never miss out on how beautifully outstanding this falls is along with its surroundings.
Luxury hotels are best experience in Goa after a hard trek to the beaches and wonderful natural attractions. Goa Marriott Resort and Spa is the best luxury hotel in Goa while Jasminn by Mango Hotels is a mid range hotel but has amenities of a luxury brand.

If you want to visit Rajasthan, then your trip will be incomplete without visiting the Pink city. The beauty and charm of Jaipur lies in the fact that it has a speciality in almost everything like heritage, monuments, art and architecture, royal palaces etc. We also have the amazing city of Jaisalmer which I believe that if someone visit Jaipur that he or she must explore Jaisalmer as well.

Delhi, the name itself reflects the history of India. The city is the capital of this rich, large and developed India. With its enriched history the city is amazing from its every corner. Travellers find it quite appealing due to its magnificent mosques, monuments, grand forts and many more things. The city is popular for the Mughal Empire and it still bears the reflection of that era. There are a number of places to be explored in new as well as old Delhi. In fact you will get space for relaxation in the big gardens of this city.
Here is a list of top five destinations in Delhi. If you are planning to visit this city then you should definitely visit these places.
The Red Fort:
When you are in Delhi, Red Fort should be at the top of your list. It is the most popular fort of the ancient India. It has a great importance in Indian history. It was made by the mughal emperors and the fort will make you remind of that historical time with its architecture. It was build over almost two kilometres and the king of India built it to keep his city safe from the enemies. However, it was captured by the British. It is situated in Old Delhi near Chandi Chowk.
The Jama Masjid:
As you know Delhi is the asset of India so it actually possesses a number of treasures that you will not find in any other city of India. And Jama Masjid is one of them which is known as the largest mosque of India. You will be surprised to know that it is so spacious that it can hold 25,000 devotees in its courtyard. It took long 13 years to complete this mosque and give it a great look. Moreover, you can enjoy a splendid view of the entire city from the rooftop of this mosque. However, you need to dress properly for visiting this place.

The Chandni Chowk:
Have you ever stuck between rickshaws, cycles, pedestrians and many more things on the road? If not then you should come to the main street of old Delhi which is known as Chandni Chowk. It is just the opposite of the beautiful, organized streets of New Delhi. The atmosphere of this street is quite strange because it is very chaotic but it can captivate you with its unique quality. You can get to see a number of markets offering different types of jewellery, electronic devices at the most reasonable price.
Now lets talk about some destinations in New Delhi. As the term new is here so it is common that the real Delhi lives on this part of the city. So I will suggest that along with Delhi sightseeing you should book accommodation in this part. One can easily get hotels in greater kailash under 2000 and can also have a nice lunch for just 500 per person. My suggestion for all foreign travellers will be to consult your booked hotels to arrange taxi for your sightseeing needs.
The Humayun Tomb:
The creation of this tomb is really unique. It can mesmerize you with its amazing beauty. It gives a sense of the architecture of that time. It was built in 1570 and was dedicated to Humayun, the second Mughal Empire. As it was the first such example of architecture in India so it always played a great role in the history and became the inspiration for many other constructions.
The Lodi Gardens:
It is the best place for enjoying your spare time. These huge gardens were made by the British. They dedicated these gardens to the rulers of 15th as well as 16th century. People come here for jogging, yoga and many other works. In fact it is a great place for the young couples.
