Thriving in the glistening blue waters of the Mekong River are some adorable creatures that are the friendliest mammals – Dolphins. The Irrawaddy species found here are a tad shy, but none the less does win over the hearts of their visitors. So come, let me tell me about my experience visiting these beautiful mammals in Cambodia About 15 kilometers from Kratie is Kampi, where the dolphin spotting takes place, and I had hired a tuk-tuk to take m

Irrawaddy dolphins found in South and Southeast Asia--numbered at only about 70 due to overfishing by the plague called humans

Situated 65 kilometers away from Shillong, Nartiang has given me some beautiful memories and the scenic beauty has captivated my mind and heart. Driving through the beautiful mountains and visiting the temple of the divine Goddess Durga I set out to explore more of Nartiang. There is a lot to see in Meghalaya and places to visit in Shillong, but somehow Nartiang sets itself apart. Want to know how? Come with me. Monoliths of Rawmulong.imageframe-

The best experience I’ve had with wildlife has been on my visit to Cambodia. There is no other place in the world that gives you the kind of exposure to wild animals as the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre which is just an hour away from Phnom Penh. It’s run by the Wildlife Alliance with the support of the government and some generous sponsors. Although they do allow general visits, the ‘behind the scenes tour’ is a one of a kind experi

Bathing an Elephant at Phnom Tamao Wildlife Centre

How do you spend a perfect evening in Phnom Penh? I recently found the answer to that question on my most recent visit there. The city is perfect for tourists in a way that you finish all of the touristy sightseeing in a day or two, followed by fun and frolic in the streets of the city. There’s a ton to do in that respect. I contemplated between a river cruise for the day, travelling out to the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center or trying my lu

On a lazy day in Phnom Penh, it's totally acceptable to wake up late and step out for a fun evening at Sisowath Quay, which is quite likely to turn into a crazy night.

Chowmahalla était autrefois considéré comme le centre d Hyderabad. Ce magnifique et gigantesque palais était le siège de la dynastie des Asaf Jahi, ou les Nizams divertissaient les invités officiels et les proches de la royauté. Chowmahalla est renommé pour son style unique et son élégance insurpassable. Pour couronner le tout, le palais est un mélange de plusieurs styles et influences architecturaux. Les dômes suivent les influences

The French have left behind the trend of baguette in Cambodia and the Khmer’s sure love them with a spread of Pâté made of minced meat and fat for breakfast. There are a lot more delectable surprises hidden in the Cambodian cuisine, and the best way to explore them is through a cooking class. You’ll find a plethora of cooking classes throughout the country, and they all give you a great learning and of course eating experience of the Cambod

Pleasant, spiritual and serene is what defines the city of Kratie situated in Cambodia and is known for its beautiful temple. The 18th-century old temple that I’m talking about today is very close to my heart. The temple itself may not attract you, but the scenic beauty of its location will. I would definitely want to revisit Phnom Sambok when I’m in Cambodia. Let me tell you why. Lost in Legends Whenever you’re around an old monument, buil

The best way to learn about a culture is through its people, and their everyday lives. But how do you learn about a culture that existed hundreds of years ago and then vanished into oblivion? The answer to that question lies in the museums. I have always been a huge fan of museums as they give you a direct look at the objects and day to day lives from an era that’s long gone. Our best lessons are learned from the past, and that’s why, this vi

Cambodia might not be the most popular country in Southeast Asia, which is luckily not due to the absence of wonderful sights.

In my experience, the best way to recharge your batteries in any city is through street food, and the street food in South East Asia beats any other street food

Wandering through the Phnom Penh’s Markets I satiated my taste for incredible street food and browsed through a variety of wares for sale.

I was on an exploration journey right from the time I set my foot in Cambodia with my friends to visit Angkor Wat. Along with my friends I had upped my historical quotient at the Angkor Archaeological Park. My friends and I were looking for an earthy rural experience; one of the locals we met told us we could visit Koh Paen. It is an island across Mekong River in Kampong Cham which is around four and half hour bus ride from Siem Reap. We set out
