HolidayIQ Reviewer Kunal Sarkar adds, “This is a fun-n-food zone within the city of Gurgaon. If one needs to spend few hours within the city, or kids want to enjoy some leisure period, take them to KOD. They will charge you an entry fee, which is also usable to consume food inside. They keep performing live with stage shows 'Bhangra; Charli Chaplin; Monkey Dance; etc'. Kids can engage themselves in these activities.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Raj Kamal adds, “Lohagarh farm is a great place for a day picnic from Gurgaon. At Rs. 950 for adults and 550 for kids (5-10) years it takes care of all foods from breakfast, lunch, snacks and activities like camel ride, mud Bath, games, Dj, Mehndi etc in a village kind of environment. The place is huge and good for big family and people with kids.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sohan Basak adds, “I regularly visit Kamakhya Temple and it warms my heart to the core. The environment, nature, in a word it's awesome. Overall, a trek to Kamakhya Temple is nothing short of an adventure. Though trekking means you'd not likely be able to have the darshan which lasts as long as the sun is above the horizon. Overall, I'd recommend to couples, kids, older people, boys and girls alike.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Ariful Islam shares, “Assamese traditional museum, nicest auditorium, beautiful park and various kids playable things etc. If someone wants to know actually what is the Assamese people traditional things, they should visits this place and taste the beauty of Guwahati city.
