HolidayIQ Reviewer Sandesh bhivande adds, “No place for dust even it's an industrial area. Spacious roads. Food options with shopping are too good.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Nitish Varshney adds, “Shanghai is AWESOME. It's more beautiful than what we see in pics. What attracted us the most is the discipline of the civilians. Traffic is well regulated and you won't see even a single traffic controller or policeman on red lights. If you love to roam around a city that has skyrocketed buildings, Shanghai is a place for you two. Financial Tower, Pearl Tower and the Bund are the topmost places I can suggest for every traveller who is planning to visit there. Apart from this, one can have a well-spent time in streets of Shanghai which offers local food and clothing at very affordable prices. People are very nice here.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Ravi Mittal shares, “Walk, Eat, Shop - Repeat The old quarter at Hanoi is a whole lot of Vietnam in one package. One can just meander through the lanes soaking everything in or fill the shopping bags with a lot of street side shopping. That includes fake watches, bags, some apparel, footwear and the likes. It is quite lively in the evenings I must add.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Raghu Palat shares, "Hanoi is an interesting city. Planned and built on the lines on Paris by the French there are several parks. The people seem very relaxed and there is always someone playing badminton on the streets. The 36 markets in the old quarter should be visited. There is an opportunity to buy several things such as silk and handicrafts. The building especially the Opera House is impressive. A city worth visiting." Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Suhasini Rajan shares, “Kiyomizu is one of the most beautiful temples I have ever visited. It is a perfect combination of architectural beauty and amazing autumn colours. It is easily accessible but a bit of climb which is totally worth it! People interested in photography will instantly fall in love with this place.You get to see a lot of women wearing traditional kimono which appears to be more common in Kyoto temples than the counterparts in other cities. Matcha green tea ice cream is a must try at this location and also relatively cheaper than other tourist locations.” Read Full Review
