Cambodia-The Land of Smiles
Lovely trip and itinerary for Cambodia from Hammock

Very nicely laid out itinerary by Hammock and very understanding staff ...especially Mr. Som Sundar. The visits to Phnom Phen & Siem Reap were clearly planned taking into account the no. of days and arrival/ departure times. Pick up from airports were spot on and no problems in check in at Hotels. Request that look at some better hotels also especially in Phnom Phen. This photo is outside Tha Phrom

Aesthetic Mahabalipuram
Breathtaking world of carvings

This seashore beauty remains in grace during day and at night Bay of Bengal embraces Mahabalipuram and shelters her safely. Mahabalipuram is a great historic town and was a prominent seaport in the Coromandel Coast. This ancient town was serving as a major hub for trade and commerce with South-East Asia during 7th century. This was my background check during my travel from Cochin to Mahabalipuram. First we landed at Chennai and had a warm welcome by Hammock Holidays representative. We had a relaxed day and enjoyed evening in Marina Beach. Next day morning around 10:00am I reached Mahabalipuram,the main crowd was foreign tourist owning to its rich architecture and importance.

Captivating Cochin
Queen looks classic in her modern attire

Cochin is the place where you find the modern world in a traditional format. My travel to South India was going deep down to my roots and find out how this town influence my ancestors. Being a malayali, it was my first visit to Cochin and part of my 1 month South India tour. I never like to have pre-planned holiday so it was a challenge for Hammock Holidays to stream line and they succeeded on this.

Homestays & Houseboats
Jannat in God's own country

Alleppey is the typical Kerala village where you find life is more simple and peaceful. You can enjoy nature at its best. Me and my 3 other friends planned a trip to relax and took Chennai Express to reach Alleppey. The trip was pre planned but we did not follow a specific itinerary. We checked in around 11:30 at homestay, a Kerala style house with an antique touch.

Karwar Holiday
Sun, Sand & Peace

We drive down to Karwar from South Goa, as unlike Goa it has quite beaches. This seaside town is on the banks of Kali River. Gentle waves and miles of golden sand make these beaches unimaginably beautiful. For us it was quite a different experience, this is the first time we had a wonderful beach holiday without any loud noise. We stayed at resort where we enjoy nature at its best and beach is just few meters away.

Badami & Aihole
Discover Badami, Aihole and Pattadakal architecture

After a long time, I’ve found some time to write about another archaeological marvel in Karnataka.I was accompanied by my cousin Arun. We are fascinated by the history and architecture of India. We love to visit the sites and learn more about them. There are several trains from Bangalore which reach Badami. Once we reached Badami, we took an auto to the hotel. We checked in, had our breakfast and set out. We opted to walk to the caves as preferred by many. It was hardly a 2km walk. We managed to reach there and visit the ASI Museum. We then took a walk around the Agasthya lake. It was a hot day. Visited the small sites around the ASI Museum. The heat had us walking slow and we had not slept well in the train. So, we decided to head back to our room and it was time for our lunch too.

We were amazed by the architectural details. I felt Hampi to be more exciting and explore-worthy than this circuit. My cousin had his own reasons to justify they were different experience. We returned to Bangalore via train. For those who can spend more time can travel from Badami to Bijapur, visit the sites there and take the return train from Bijapur.

The next day, we visited the Banashankari temple first, which is 5km from Badami town, enroute Aihole. Once we finished our darshan, we had our breakfast at a hotel near the temple. We then headed to Pattadakal, finished our sightseeing there and on our way back, we visited Aihole.

We head to the cave temples during the evening. We decided to take an auto-rickshaw to the caves. We visited the caves and watched the red ball of fire set in the West. The next day we wanted to visit Aihole-Banashankari-Pattadakal.

One thing me and my cousin loved in Badami was the local food eat-outs called “Khanavalis”. These are like mess. They serve lunch and dinner which has the culinary specialities of the North Karnataka – Jolada Rotti and Enagai (Corn Rotis and brinjal gravy) along with chutney powder, onions and some curd. Also with this you get rice served, with pappad, a curry and some pickle. Yummy!!! They are not that costly and they are good for health.
