Luxury Camping for Weekend Getaway Jaisalmer

Image
If you are looking for the most fabulous desert experience in the lap of the absolute luxury, taste and impeccable service. Then “The Serai” would be an ideal choice for you.

This is a high standard tented hotel located about half-an-hour by road from Jaisalmer. There are 21 tents with a bar, dining room and lounge in a huge main tent plus an outside infinity pool area. There's an excellent spa and no Internet - but we can all cope without it for a couple of nights, and what a joy that can be! The accommodation is very good - a small sitting area with desk and easy chairs that then enters into the bedroom, behind which is the bathroom and, if you've booked, also a small courtyard with private plunge pool.

The quietness of The Serai with beautiful landscaping and, with exception to the birds, that's exactly what you get. Speaking of birds, there are many varieties/species, and you will find it enjoyable and relaxing to observe and photograph them, particularly at sunris…

Damodra Desert Camp, Weekend Trip to Jaisalmer

Image
Take a nice weekend trip to Jaisalmer and experience desert rawness with sand silk. Experience the desert safari with Damodra Desert Camp. It’s a perfect place to relax in the middle of the desert. Enjoy the camel safari with a beautiful sunset set. The camp itself is great and the tents are impressive, stocked with modern facilities and staff is wonderful. The best thing about the camp and the desert is the night with the clear sky where you can gaze and communicate with stars as much as you can. And then wake up in the morning to hear wild peacock calls and see them loitering around your tents. The overall experience is really great at this place.

My Best Family Vacation would be Australia

Image
Travelling is my passion and If I get a chance to plan a memorable vacation for my family, It would undoubtedly be Australia.

Australia is as varied as it is enormous-- it is home to thriving cities, vast wilderness, and earnest, friendly people.  Sydney offers plenty of historical and contemporary Australian flavor.  Lovely, laid-back Melbourne has something for everyone: family fare, local and international art, haute boutiques, multicultural dining, Australian and Aboriginal history, spectator sports, and pulsing, swanky nightlife.  Cairns is the perfect city for merry revelers, passionate divers and adrenaline junkies, offering booming nightlife and heart-pounding adventure amid a vibrant, tropical setting.  Perched on the banks of the wide Swan River, between the Indian Ocean and the sands of the Nullarbor Desert, Perth is one of the world's most isolated cities, yet still boasts an active beach scene and smokin’ nightlife. Brisbane is the hub of Queensland culture, offerin…

Weekend Getaway to Pratapgarh Farms, Jhajjar, Haryana

Interesting place for a day out! We planned a weekend trip with friends and kids for a picnic specially during the winter. We drove from Noida around 8:30. We carried lot of stuff to eat for kids as it took us almost 3hours to reach Pratapgarh Farms. We reached there at 12:00.

It is wonderful experience to drive through lush green farms with wheat grown all over. The ticket was for 699 for Adults and 375 for kids above 5yrs and below 10yrs.

As soon as we entered, we saw fresh sugarcane and raddish which you can enjoy to the fullest. Kids had handful of sugarcanes and enjoyed throughout the day. Since we reached at 12:00 we were quiet hungry, so we enjoyed freshly made bajre/ makki ke roti with sarson saag or lasun ki chatni, bajre kichdi which was served all day and with unlimited serving.

Then we had garam pakoras and very nice tea. Once we were done with food we explored activities around and to our surprise there was so much to do around that your whole day you can just keep busy …

I have explored this place this time when i was in shimla. Its near summer hill. A complete jungle drive with pine trees. Within the jungle this potter camp is created where you have facility to stay in cottages or tree house or tent. You can enjoy barbeques in open jungle. This place is away from hustle bustle and you are in the jungle with cold weather. You would enjoy this place if you are in group. You also have hammocks in lapse of nature where you can relax, read novel or just be lying watching sky a…
