HolidayIQ Traveller Diksha Rangnani from Mumbai shares, “You will get to see something new in India specially if you live in north India where you don't get to see so much of water. It's a city of backwater and the only and most attractive thing is the houseboat ride in the back water. Altogether a different experience where you get to stay in a boat which has all the facility they travel whole day and after sunset on the bank of river. They stop and you can enjoy night there. Gives you a feeling of cruise but yes not so cheap. 7k to 15k for a night, good for 4 people. Not heavy on pockets.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Charles Santhanaraj shares, “The Palace is spectacular always with its magnanimity and artistic outdoor spanning lawns, gardens, elephants, and camels. A ride in the battery operated vehicle around the palace with the timely explanations of the place by the driver come guide is a nice experience. This time the opportunity to see the palace fully decorated with lights in the sunday evening is a spectacular experience. Except on the sunday evenings there is entrance fee to enter the palace and the foreigners need to pay more.”

9. The Tranquil Monasteries Of Arunachal Pradesh

HolidayIQ Traveller Debayan Bhowmik from Kolkata shares, “It is a must see sight if you are visiting Tawang at any time of the year. It is basically the chief attraction of Tawang. Talking about activity, you will be truly mesmerised at the sight of the beautiful age-old architecture in the lap of the mountains. It will be good if tourists leave their footwear outside the monastery or else you have to find a place to keep it just outside the monastery. You must at all times carry an umbrella because rains are prevalent in this part of the country.”

10. The Neer Mahal Of Tripura

HolidayIQ Traveller Himanshu Gupta from Navi Mumbai shares, “Neermahal is a beautiful palace situated between lakes, hence called water palace. It is just like Jal Mahal in Jaipur, not that big and beautiful but it has its own attraction. You are taken to the Palace in between the water through a ferry ride or a motor boat on a very nominal charge. Once you reach there, you can enjoy the view from its top, which is mesmerising and breathtaking. I have clicked a hell lot of pictures there and am sure one can find many good spots to shoot. Nature lover photographers would love that place to capture in a camera. The old palace that was made by the king at that time has many big and small halls and whosoever had to visit to that palace had to come in a boat. There is a sound show that goes there in the evening but at the time of my visit, it was not operating so I did not get a chance to see that. It was a worth visiting that palace and am sure one would love to capture him/her in front of that palace in a piece of paper.”
