HolidayIQ traveller Mallika Raghavendra shares about Hampi, “Stones that tell a story. The minute you reach Hampi you are transported to the past and a different era, where time is of no consequence and where all you had to do was to savour the wonder of the moment and get lost in the wonderful monuments and architecture of mysterious Hampi.

If you have a very active imagination you can visualize the life of the kings, Maharanis and the people of Hampi long long ago. Their leisurely lifestyle, their dedication to the arts and their fierce defence of their stronghold. Every stone tells a story and you just need to be still and quiet and you can hear the past whispering to you.

If you really want to appreciate the atmosphere it is best to do it in silence. If your companions are very talkative it is best to leave them behind in the hotel and explore the place alone.”

HolidayIQ traveller Abhijit Vaidya shares, “We Travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us. My recent visit to Lavasa rejuvenated my life. Lavasa is a place near Pune, Maharashtra nestled amidst the majestic Sahyadri Mountains. Before visiting Lavasa, in the past I had toured most of the places in India. But among those places Lavasa is one of my favorite. The key reason for that is, it has unpolluted air & and excellent year round climate. Such things was always missing in the locations that I have explored.”

HolidayIQ traveller Yagnadat Reddy shares about a trip he was glad to take, “We were a group of friends on a Diesel Nissan Micra on our way to Lamb of God concert! Had a night long trip from Hyderabad. We were terribly sleepy by the time we were near Bangalore. Luckily we were very near to Nandi hills and we thought why don't we just have a peek. Glad we did!! what a cloudy morning we had over there!! we just parked our car on the valley top, and went around mesmerized at the early morning glory and the cool pleasant air drifting all around us! The view from that hilltop is absolutely awesome, we were over there for couple of hours and we didn't even realize it!!!”

HolidayIQ traveller Srinivas Reddy shares about Mysore, “Fantastic city to explore & wander. It was a fantastic city site tour we had in March 2015. We were three families went to Mysore by car. First we visited Sri Ranganatha temple and Tippu palaces. Very pleasant journey. Later we moved to Chamundeswari temple on the hill and stayed there for 2 hours, came down and took the hotel for rest. While return, we touched the big nandi, which is another attraction. Later in the afternoon we went to famous church and spend some time and then moved to famous maharajah palace. It was amazing and cannot write in words. Everyone must visit the palace at-least once in the life.”

HolidayIQ traveller Sandip Patil shares about Vinayaga Hotel, Rameshwaram, "The fine stay was well paid off. The hotel was located opposite to railway station. It was easy and very convenient to travel. I had been there for a religious tour with my wife. The appearance of the hotel from both inside and outside was very good. The staff behaviour was friendly and very cooperative. Rooms were spacious, neat and clean. I had a very good temple view from the hotel. There was no delay while check-in and check-out. The food quality was very good. There were no activities provided by the hotel. They arranged sightseeing trip. I have no suggestions regarding the hotel's improvement. It was a very good hotel and I would visit again. I would definitely recommend to other travellers.”
