Delightful place for couples

The mall road is the shopping centre of the city Shimla.It lies on the top of the city. One has to take a walk throught the street as vehicles are not allowed on the road. Many food joints are available on the street.The place is mostly enjoyable for couples.One can see panaromic view of the city from this place.

Shimla: Queen of hills

Shimla is my husband's most cherished place as he spent lot of his childhood days in shimla. It was his bdAy trip so he asked me this gift of visiting Shimla. For us it was more of reliving his memories than visiting the tourist places.i think it was too commercialised but yes for me it was such an emotional one as my husband was childlike throughout this trip.

Shimla - The Himalayan Queen

Wonderfull place to spend quality time with your partner. Hold his/her hand and take a memorable walk on Mall Road. Explore the Himalayan beauty through Kalka to Shimla Toy Train. Take a Yak ride in the Kufri. Also visit the highest cricket pitch in the Chail. Don't forget to visit the historic Christ Church.

One of the best tourist attractions

We plunged on a heap of tourist attractions in Mall Road right from the blissful St. Michaels Cathedral Church to the wacky Jonnies Wax Museum to the highest peak of Jakhu temple. It was a lovely experience transcending the hills from the car. And the local shops with all kinds of fresh fruits, lovely home decor items and beautiful garments were an added advantage. Most importantly the roads are clear all the time with no rush of vehicles so you can always stay safe and walk down the interesting spots.

Walking in to britishers colony

Walking in like britishers colony, beautiful monuments thru the mall road. Full of crowd till night. Shopping mall, restaurants, bakery, everything available. Due to no vehicle zone, we can roam easily with long mall road. Wonderful place to enjoy with family & friends. HPTC information centre is also available on the mall road for tourist help, from where we can plan sightseen etc.

Happening but overpriced shopping place!

Visit to the mall road while in shimla is a must for all. Be it variety of street foods, good restaurants, local shops for clothes & woolens, wooden decors, etc., you will get it all here.Though there are very good options for foods, clothes & woolens are overpriced. For e.g price of a simple embroidered shawl was 1500rs, which I can get within 1000-1200 in Delhi easily.Since we went on weekend, so the place was very crowded, with long waiting times in restaurants too.It is little tiring too to walk the whole mall road, as road is sometimes steep, & sometimes low slopes. From scandal point, there is stairs to go to the mall directly, which is really helpful in saving time & energy.
