HolidayIQ Reviewer Nitin Sharma shares, “A cool hill retreat I visited this place with my family and friends more than 3 times. Its plunging pine-clad valleys and distant mountain views are wonderful. Shimla is the capital of Himachal Pradesh and it is another of those cool hill retreats left behind by the British. We reached there by cab arranged by our hotel from Chandigarh. Awesome experience it was; it took around two hours to reach Shimla but in August we felt like it was December. It is a very nice place to visit. You can feel the cold and fog that might amaze you, greenery, and small villages around- it is so mesmerizing. They are many hotels to stay and some of them are available at an affordable price too. We also visited the mall road and saw the church - do visit to rekindle your love.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Santhosh Wilson adds, “Carvings: If you are ardently interested in sculpture, Konark has an array of beautiful carvings to offer, like any ancient temple in India, crafted from stone. Shopping: Konark is not a limited edition monument meant only for heritage dwellers and art enthusiasts. There is ample scope for shopaholics and curio lovers too. We came out from the temple premises to have a leisurely shopping from the many stalls located on either side of the road. We bought stone carved replicas of the chariot wheels and some showpiece items. Above all, they packed everything safe enough for a long journey. And now, the price factor: The more you bargain, the cheaper. The price for the same item varies one shop to another.”  Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sajeed Khaleedu adds, “Magic Planet is the world's great magical theme park. According to Organizer's version, it is the world’s first magical theme park. I am not sure about that. Its founder is India's great magician Gopinath Muthukad. It was a great experience on a Magical planet. It was a journey through the history of magic to various types of magical illusions. The Indian street magic sessions are the greater attraction. I am sure you will wonder at the Great Indian Mango trick and rope magic of Indian street Magic. The vanishing of the ship at the background of the Shakespearean drama The Tempest, Houdini escape acts, Mirror magic, History of Magic, Closer magic, mirror miracle and several other attractions are here. Nice clean and well-maintained ambiance. Food is served at affordable rates. Toilet and parking facilities are available.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Hemant prasad shares, “During our stay in Ajmer we stayed in a nearby hotel to Dargah and ordered food from there. The food tasted really nice. While walking near Dargah we found some local shops which provided fresh and tasty food. You can find good food in these shops. During our journey we were kept busy with the sights of Pushkar. The place is really amazing - we visited Ajmer by train which is very easy and a really cheap method of reaching Ajmer, though you can visit Ajmer by plane also. My advice is that you don't hire a guide during your travel because they can loot you. So for a divine destination visit - you can simply visit this holy place.” Read Full Review
