New Delhi Trip

A DAY TRIP TO NEW DELHI WITH MY GIRLFRIEND

It had always been our dream to make a trip to New Delhi with my girlfriend, and when this came to a reality, the experience was a memorable one. The fact that India has some of the most attractive tourist sites in the world was not the only reason why our day was livened up. The diverse cultures of the Indian people that are fully enriched with various unique aspects regarding well-mannered treatment of people, made us feel at home. Their interactive nature totally impacted on us and we felt accepted and part of their society. These could be judged from the various treatments we received in their various social amenities. In addition, Indian social facilities are fully equipped with a state of the art elegance that seems to reflect the rich cultures of the Indian people.

New Delhi Trip

After a long flight to New Delhi, we were now in our dream city. The sunny morning was quite inviting. We decided to do some shopping and the place to do it was no other than M Block Market in Greater Kailah. To our surprise the facility offered almost everything that a standard mall can offer. It is popular for fast snacks and collections of western fashion clothes. It was our choice since it is located a short walk from the place we were to spend the night. It also has jewellery shops that sell Indian ornaments; I even bought a ring for my girl. The items here also come at an affordable price.

We had done a lot of research on where we were going to spend the night after the close of our grand day. Hotel GTC in South Delhi was our next stop which is a very good hotel in south delhi. Located south of New Delhi the hotel was our most preferred as it offered the desired services, as we had learnt from their online website. Notably, it features spacious rooms which are decorated in beautiful Indian art, a restaurant, free breakfast as well as fulltime hotel service assistance. We were really surprised at other additional features we were not really expecting. The hotel rooms are equipped with air conditioners, clean bathrooms with bathrobes and toiletries, a television, a phone as well as free Wi-Fi. Another unlikely feature that caught our attention was a coffee maker that allows guests to prepare a drink for themselves. The hotel is surely the best place to take a nap in India. I will say that GTC is a cheap hotel in greater kailash delhi but the service here is excellent.

Lunch was the next thing we had to take before resuming our tour. The janpath hotel was our next stop which is located at Lutyen . The place has indisputably the best chefs in India. All sorts of foods are offered here especially the Indian indigenous meals. The tables are equipped with an eye catching la carte menu that comes in handy to help you make the right choice of meal for you. Surprisingly, the janpath hotel also offers meals from other cultures like the Chinese and Italians. The free desserts are also luring bait for customers. Nevertheless we enjoyed our meal.

After whole day of strolling and exploring New Delhi, we decided to watch a movie so as to pass time since it was still too early for bed. I did a few inquiries and learnt that PVR Plaza, Delhi was the most preferred cinema point for most of our interviewees. Watching a film at PVR Plaza is a feeling like no other. Located at Cannaught Palace, the facility features one large screen. It also has a dumbfounding sitting capacity, and very comfortable seats. The tickets also as I learnt can be purchase online.

Meghalaya

The Living Natural Root Bridges in Meghalaya

Come to India and enjoy the beautiful travel delights here in this part of the world. Visit the most unique destinations here and also experience the pleasures of a land that has the best kind of delights. Visually a kaleidoscope of energy and vibrancy, the states of India offer some of the best tour delights in this part of the world in India. Meghalaya in India is a great place to visit with the best sights that could be offered for all the tourists here.

Natural Root Bridges in Meghalaya

Deep in the forests of the Indian subcontinent there are some fascinating structures on earth which give you the best travel delights and the most fascinating visual treats for a tourist here. Meghalaya brings forth to you the incredible root bridges which are not only natural structures but absolutely lovely living structures. These are one of the best examples of living architecture here. the bridges were initially constructed by people from the nearby villages around the lovely Cherrapunjee region. The bridge was built with stones and tree trunks and then the roots of the Indian Rubber tree were used . the Bridges then gradually got encased in the roots thus bringing about a living structure that is today a major highway for the Meghalaya inhabitants.

These bridges lie at the foot of the Meghalaya plateau and are the most fascinating constructions in this part of the world. the Khasi tribe who live in the valleys adjacent to Bangladesh have actually trained the branches and the roots of the trees to result in living bridges crossing the rivers that actually divide the villages into two. These bridges today seem to belong to God and are very close to Mother Nature.

The bridges are growing stronger every day and it takes them around 10 to 15 years to get totally functional. One they are formed their life span is around 500 to 600 years. This is much longer than a conventional bridge.

Located around 1000 metres from the Meghalaya plateau this is a lovely natural sight here in this part of India. The surface of the bridge has bits of wood and rocks added to the mix so that it is easier to cross. There is also another reason why wood has been added. The wood decomposes and it gives nutrients for the roots of the tree growing around it. The area gets around 15 metres of rein each year . So a normal wooden bridge would completely rot. But the growing bridges are alive and they are still growing so they gain strength over a period of time.

The locals have guided vines and roots from the local rubber tree which is found across the rivers. They have used hollowed out trees to result in a root guidance system. When the vines and the roots go to the opposite bank they are allowed to take root. Thus a very strong bridge is produced. In fact there are some bridges which take around 10 to 15 years to get totally functional.

The hanging bridge made out of roots is a very special feature of tours to Meghalaya. Come here and enjoy the beautiful sights of this bridge here and I am sure that you will say…

Just Wow
