Kids will surely enjoy the rides and the waves during a couple of school breaks or somehow get out of the city’s hustle and bustle for a day.

A normal bask in the pool water will never tire someone, and to kids, the adrenaline rush from different rides will make them scream with too much excitement.

Food court is also available for snacking and breakfast and lunch meals that are made chiefly to entice the little ones. Fun and Food Village is an excellent place to hang out for a family day affair.

M Block Market, Greater Kailash

A spectacular destination for theater performances and leisure, Kingdom of Dreams has made a name in the industry of entertaining a lot of people.

Food establishments are also available so it would not become a problem.

Doll Museum Delhi

Girls love their dolls, and the Shankar’s international Doll Museum is like a dream place for them. Dolls from all around the globe are exhibited here, so the small ladies will learn more about the culture and tradition of other countries as well, other than feasting their eyes on the dolls. Most of the doll collections are very old and probably from the bygone era, the museum is housed to the largest collection of dolls the world has ever seen.

There are not a lot of people going to Aapno Ghar, so a family can take advantage of that situation to enjoy the pool that is not as crowded as other Water Parks in India. Foods are excellent in taste here at Aapno Ghar, so take advantage of that one too.

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.
