Dining with the Maharajas at Dilli 32

As much as I love attending food festivals across various hotels in Delhi, I simply love the ones that are done at Leela Ambience Convention Hotel. They are simply the best at the food festivals on offer in Delhi, and are not to be missed at all!

The latest in their offering is the ‘Dining with the Maharajas’ series where you will get a taste of royalty from all parts of India right in your city. The first pit stop on the ‘Dining with the Maharajas’ journey is Mahmoodabad, situated in the heart of the holy city of Sitapur. To bring out the authentic flavors of each dish, Chef de Cuisine Ashwani Kumar Singh himself travelled to the city to learn the art of recreating the royal dishes.

Delhi to Jaipur: The Long Weekend getaway!

With a quarter of 2017 already gone by, it is now time to start planning for the upcoming long weekends in 2017, since there aren’t too many left anyway, and before we know it, the year might just end. So bring out those planners and start planning. The best thing to do on a long weekend is to go to a tourist place near to where you live, ideally at a driveable distance. I find driving down to some place more enjoyable than taking a flight, especially when you are out to enjoy a long weekend with family or friends. You can make stopovers at your favorite local restaurants or dhabas, stop for tea breaks and enjoy the scenic views from the car while listening to your favorite songs.

The Lalit Mangar: Staycation review

Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury! ~ Coco Chanel

So a few weeks back, our quest for luxury took us to the newly opened The Lalit Mangar, situated in the heart of Mangar village in Haryana, just around Delhi.. The property is super close to Delhi, and offers an unimaginable view of the Aravali hills, something which is totally unheard of in the Delhi-NCR area. Read on for our full take on this beauty!

The property

The moment you enter the property, you know you’ve stepped in for some peaceful luxury! The place is very calm in itself, and the grandeur of the property only adds to the serenity.

Paris in a day- Travelogue

Paris in a day!

They say that ‘A bad day in Paris is still better than a good day anywhere else’. And you can only testify for the same once you are back from Paris. Actually, you never come back from Paris. You leave a piece of your heart there. That’s the magic of the beautiful and majestic Paris, which I’m sure is unlike any other place on this planet. Or at least I’m obsessed with it!

Last year, I had the chance to visit Paris for a few days for work, but the first day for me was completely free, so I decided to travel as much as possible and cover as many best tourist places in Paris as I possibly could. Here’s what you can do too is you wanna see Paris in a day, especially when you don’t wanna get on one of those hop-on-hop-off buses coz who likes routines!

First off, I took the Paris Metro and reached Pont Alexandre III. It is a beautiful arch bridge that spans river Sienne. A beautiful bridge in itself, this one point will offer you a view of Paris Eye, Les Invalides and the tops of the Eiffel Tower in a gorgeous panoramic view. You could spend some time here and just soak in the ‘feel’ of Paris all around you.
