    The place of Nawabs (royal historical past persons), called Hyderabad, is the capital metropolis of Telangana state. There are numerous distinguished weekend getaways from Hyderabad to offer the visitors an amazing time. With a few locations in the line, where the rich and respectable cultural heritage is highlighted in Hyderabad. The local street cuisine to savour your taste buds and far more, the city has a never-ending record of stunning places that will absolutely make your weekend an excellent one. One of the weekends, I planned to visit Kurnool by bus from Hyderabad. The road distance of 212kms and it took around 5 hours to reach Kurnool. I booked online bus tickets at https://www.redbus.in/bus-tickets/hyderabad-to-kurnool.aspx that saved a lot of my time. Moreover allowed me to choose from the vast list of bus operators and bus types. Most of the places are well connected by roadways from Hyderabad. I selected the bus that well fitted all my requirements and enriched my bus travel experience.

    I boarded the bus from Chintal pick up point at around 8:30pm and reached Kurnool at 2:00am. I was travelling in an Ac Seater bus that was clean and comfortable. The bus passed through various alluring landscapes, varied topography and broad highways. The bus was punctual, it came with ample leg space and clean interiors. I strongly prefer buses while travelling, as they are easy to access and cost effective.

    Kurnool is location of historical worth with gorgeous surrounding areas. It is a small town in Andhra Pradesh where history left its imprints. I was looking forward to visit all the attractions in Kurnool like the Belum caves, Birla mandir, Oravakallu Rock Garden, Rollapadu Wildlife Sanctuary, Tomb of Abdul Wahab are other major spots. Heard a lot about the Kondareddy Buruz, which is protected by the Ancient Monuments Preservation Act, is also one of the interesting place to visit.

    These hotels are the perfect options for people who are looking to stay just for a night and are on tight budgets. Though the rooms have been priced economically, these hotels offer cosy guest rooms, extend warm hospitality and top notch facilities so that you can complete your stay without any hassles. These hotels are situated at strategic locations just kilometres away from duty free shops and iconic landmarks. The prime location makes it even more easily to reach here as there are several buses plying on these routes. Travelling by cab is not only costly but also a hassle as I experienced that the cabbies here tend to overcharge. There are also plenty of dining options where you can have a sumptuous meal at unbelievable prices. If you are looking for a quick accommodation but a comfortable one these hotels should be your best choices.

    These buses have their own tracking system and there is no need to wait at the bus stop either. You can travel carefree without your wallets thanks to https://www.redbus.my which will let you book your bus tickets online.

A stay in this hotel will set you back by just RM167. It houses more than 143 guest rooms and suites, a huge indoor pool, a 24 hours fitness centre for the gymming enthusiasts and a conference centre for guests who are out on a business trip. The hotel is at a 25-minute distance from the airport so I highly recommend you to reach here by bus instead of paying higher fares for Cabs. It is a 3 star hotel featuring fully furnished rooms. The hotel also features the Kingfisher Café where you can indulge in some local and international favourites. If you are in the city on a corporate visit the hotel is also known to offer meetings and events packages for corporate affairs or seminars.

    BellaVista Waterfront Resort

    The hotel is just 15.8 kms away from the Langkawi International Airport, which is a lot of distance, and travelling by Cab will set you back by around RM200 not forgetting surge pricing by Cab Aggregators.

    Bali adalah tempat yang sangat hemat biaya yang menjadikannya salah satu faktor tujuan liburan favorit dan juga menawarkan berbagai hal untuk dinikmati tanpa merogoh saku anda lebih dalam. Berkeliling mungkin mengharuskan anda mengurangi sedikit uang perjalanan anda, tetapi perjalanan yang mencakup dari pantai populer hingga ke perbukitan dan lembah yang indah semua ini merupakan bayaran yang pas karena memberikan nilai yang luar biasa bagi para wisatawan yang memiliki anggaran terbatas, karena di setiap akhir perjalanan anda yang penuh dengan pengalaman baru itu tidak mengeluarkan biaya tambahan apapun!

Yang paling terkenal, seperti Tuban, Kuta, Sanur, Legian, Seminyak, dan Nusa Dua memiliki jalan setapak tambahan yang memungkinkan untuk berjalan santai sepanjang waktu, terutama saat matahari terbit dan terbenam yang menakjubkan.

    Di selatan ada beberapa Pusat Perbelanjaan yang dapat mudah diakses dari pantai dan merupakan ide bagus untuk berbelanja langsung setelah seharian di pantai.

    Mendaki dan menjelajah Pegunungan: Jika anda berjiwa petualang, pegunungan Bali bebas untuk didaki tetapi ada gunung yang lebih berat untuk didaki seperti Gunung Agung dan Batukaru, karena merupakan dua gunung tertinggi yang ada di pulau ini, dan biasanya memerlukan izin dari organisasi masyarakat desa setempat atau kehutanan. (Tidak ada biaya untuk menikmati aktifitas ini)

    Jelajahi kreasi Karya Besar: Hentikanlah perjalanan anda di salah satu pasar seni utama di Bali di mana anda dapat melihat kios demi kios berdiri berdampingan menjajakan seni dan kerajinan, serta barang antik dengan berbagai bentuk dan ukuran.

    Lihatlah Ming La Vogue, toko barang antik tertua di kota ini yang terletak di Jalan Pemuda, untuk melihat berbagai barang seni tradisionalnya yang mempesona.

    Bali memiliki sejumlah tempat dimana tarian tradisional Jawa dan pertunjukan drama diadakan, termasuk Wayang Orang Ngesti Pandowo yang berlokasi di Jalan Pemuda, dimana pertunjukan bertema Jawa mingguan sering dilakukan.

    Bali mempunyai sebagian besar kegembiraan modern yang terdiri dari pasar-pasar terbuka, gerai dan arsitektur kuno yang dapat dijelajahi, posisinya antara pantai dan gunung-gunung juga menampilkan beberapa pemandangan yang indah. Pelabuhan internasional Tanjung Mas yang terletak di sisi utara adalah tempat yang dianggap sebagai tempat utama untuk pusat kelautan, ini merupakan inspirasi gagasan perjalanan liburan romantis serta sering masuk dan keluarnya kapal pesiar dan kapal perdagangan.

    Jika anda datang ke Bali pada saat-saat festival diadakan, sangat beruntung bagi anda dapat melihat budaya yang indah dan khas ini dengan diadakannya pawai di jalan-jalan utama di Bali serta tentunya untuk dapat menikmati pemandangan ini, anda dikenakan biaya nol rupiah alias gratis!

    SINGAPORE

    May 16 in India

    Bus ride to Kuala Lumpur from Singapore

    Singapore is much more than its numerous attractions. It is constantly evolving and reimagining itself within a short span of time. It consists of people who are passionate about thinking and creating new possibilities. Foodies, explorers, collectors, action seekers, culture shapers and socialisers all come together and form a new experience everyday. Situated on the equator Singapore is one of the smallest yet one of the most beautiful island countries which is quite known for its cleanliness and safety. It is also one of the most modern cities of South East Asia known to be flourishing for decades together. Tourism is one of the most effective means of boosting the economy of the country. However, when you are on tour make sure to pay heed to the local laws of Singapore or you may end up paying a severe fine.

    It is a perfect blend of culture, cuisine, arts and architecture. From its ethnicity to the peaceful gardens everything in this city has made my tour worthwhile. State of the art infrastructure, crystal clear beaches, theme parks makes this country one of the preferred choices for families. After spending almost a month here it was time for me to head to my next destination which is the capital city of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. I booked my bus tickets from this website http://www.redbus.sg and was quite happy with the experience. As per the website there were about 6 operators plying on this route. The One Travel and Tours, Trans Star Express, Seasons Express, Konsortium, First Coach and KKK Travels were some of them. All these Operators had buses plying right from 12:00 am to 10:00 pm. There were about 25 buses departing in a single day from each Operator. The cost of the tickets start upwards of SGD30 and go up all the way to SGD55 depending upon the class of buses you book.

    There are about 20 to 25 seats in each bus making room for comfortable traffic. I booked my Bus tickets with Star Mart Express like i usually do. The Operator is quite punctual and the buses are equipped with a wide range of amenities. Star Mart Express is an Executive coach Operator. However, if you are a luxury seeker you can book your bus tickets with the One Travel and Tours. A single ticket with this Operator will cost you around SGD53. I would recommend you to book your bus tickets atleast a week in advance in order to avoid last minute rush.

    Kuala Lumpur: The most popular and iconic attractions of Kuala Lumpur are known to define the city as a true tourist destination. The huge Petronaus Twin Towers as well as the Standing Buddha Image found outside Batu Caves are known to be some premiere destinations worth a visit. Kuala Lumpur is known to be full of greenery, lake gardens, homw to popular bird and deer parks that you can freely visit. Make sure to visit the I-City Shah Alam to capture some beautiful pictures of the colourful display of LED lit attractions.

    Chandigarh

    March 1 in India

    Da ich in den Nachtbussen nicht wirklich zum Schlafen komme und mir dadurch viel Schlaf und Energie verloren geht, mache ich auf dem Weg nach Rishikesh zwei Nächte Halt in Chandigarh. Die Anreise dauert somit erstmal nur ca. 6 Stunden, fast angenehm sogar.
    Chandigarh ist ein wenig anders als die üblichen indischen Städte. Zunächst einmal wurde die Stadt von einem Schweizer in den 50er Jahren geplant und dabei in Sektoren errichtet, die in Rechtecken angeordnet sind. Dadurch gibt es kilometerlange Hauptstraßen sowie Ampelkreuzungen und Kreisverkehre. Und darüber hinaus scheint es sogar so als würden sich die Verkehrsteilnehmer an Straßenverkehrsregeln halten. Ganz anders als das Verkehrschaos, welches ich im restlichen Indien bisher erlebt habe. Im Stadtkern gibt es alle möglichen Shops, um sich beispielsweise mit westlicher Kleidung einzudecken. Die Hotelpreise waren vergleichbar hoch und Hostels leider nicht anzufinden. Der Ort an sich ist auch nicht wirklich spannend. Neben dem möglichen Shopping sind eigentlich nur der „Rockgarden“ und der See als Highlight zu betrachten.
    Glücklicherweise war zum Zeitpunkt meines Aufenthaltes allerdings noch das Frühjahrsfest Holi beziehungsweise auch Festival der Farben genannt. Dabei geht es hauptsächlich darum Kreidefarbe auf alles und jeden zu verteilen, auch auf Hunde und Kühe. Während in anderen Städten zu dieser Zeit große Partys gefeiert werden, halte ich mich bewusst zurück. Somit fühle ich mich im ruhigen Chandigarh derzeit ganz wohl. Nichtsdestotrotz scheinen viele Inder jedoch sehr großes Interesse daran gehabt zu haben den großen Weißen auch bunt zu schmücken. Dementsprechend sehe ich dann am Ende des Tages auch aus.

    Chandigarh (31.03. - 01.04.)

    April 1, 2016 in India

    Chandigarh als Zwischenstopp auf dem Weg nach Delhi können wir nur empfehlen. Wir waren zwar eigentlich nur eine Nacht und einen Morgen hier, aber es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Kleines Kuriosum: Chandigarh ist sowohl die Hauptstadt des Bundesstaats Punjab als auch die von Haryana - liegt aber in keinem dieser beiden, sondern ist sein eigenes Unionsterritorium. Außerdem ist die Stadt nicht mit der Zeit gewachsen, sondern wurde von vornherein komplett durchgeplant: Alle Straßen laufen orthogonal zueinander und teilen die Stadt in 32 gleich große Sektoren ein. Innerhalb der Sektoren fahren fast keine Fahrzeuge, was natürlich sehr angenehm ist.

    Nachdem wir also Indien nachts zugesehen hatten, wie sie trotz echt gutem ersten Innings aus der Cricket-Meisterschaft geflogen sind, gingen wir heute morgen zum Rock Garden. Vor ein paar Jahrzehnten hat sich dort ein verrückter Künstler in einer Hütte verkrochen und Skulpturen gebastelt. Das hat mehrere Jahre lang keiner gemerkt und als es dann doch so weit war, war die Fläche mit seinen Kunstwerken schon so groß, dass man sie nicht mehr abreißen wollte und stattdessen gefördert hat.

    Nunja, viel mehr gibt's aus Chandigarh nicht zu berichten, also ab zum dritten Mal nach Delhi!

    Bilder: Impressionen aus dem Rock Garden, die letzten drei frei nach dem Motto "Ist das Kunst oder kann das weg?"
