Maldives Travel Guide

Maldives Islands is an archipelago comprising 1,190 low-lying coral islands scattered across the equator. Their pure white sands are fringed with green palms and surrounded by some of the clearest water in the world. Each resort sits on its own island, so it's important to pick the right place & also right time to visit Maldives. In this post, I will give all the information required, for planning a trip to the Maldives.



Pattadakkal - Chalukyan's Red Town

When I reached my hotel at Badami, the hotel manager told me that there are a lot of places to visit inside and outside Badami. I had two days at my disposal to visit these places. So I dedicated my first day for visiting places within Badami and I decided to spend my second day to visit places outside Badami. Pattadakal was the first destination in “my list of places to visit outside Badami”.

Aihole - Cradle of Indian Architecture

After visiting the Badami fort and the cave temples, my next destinations were Aihole and Pattadakkal. From my previous day's visit to the Badami Archaeological museums, I got an opportunity to read about the history of the Chalukyans and their kingdom. The articles say that the Chalukyan's early capital was at Aihole. Then they moved their capital to Badami, which is about 33 kilo meters away. Aihole earlier known as Ayyavoḷe and later Aryapura.
So, as usual, I inquired about the bus timings and the share auto timings to Aihole at the hotel's reception, the Royal Deluxe lodge. The boys at the hotel, were of great help as they suggested me two options: 1) To catch the van that was going to Pattadakkal at 9 am. From there, I can catch an auto or another bus to Aihole. 2) To use the direct bus service from Badami to Aihole. However the overall one sided cost for the trip will be around 12 rupees.


The Land Rover Experience

"Land Rover Experience" is one of the unique concept driven by "Land Rover" company during which customers get a chance to experience the real power of Land rovers in off road conditions, which generally not possible in normal test drives. I'm very passionate about Land Rovers since child hood and always wanted to experience this beast. I never expected that I will be part of this event and I should thank Harish of BlogAdda for giving me this wonderful opportunity, it was like my dream come true.




Trip to Penang

Penang is a Malaysian state and is situated on the northwest coast of Peninsular Malaysia. This region of Malaysia is the most industrialized and urbanized part of this magnificent country. As it is basically an island, you will find ample of scenic beauty to feast your eyes with.


ClickPro Prime Review

I was planning to buy a water proof + compact camera and found 'Click Pro Prime' on snapdeal.com. I'm really impressed with the quality of this product and thought of writing a detailed review.
Bought from: Snapdeal (http://www.snapdeal.com/product/click-pro-oculus-prime/301067427). Only available on snapdeal. Price: 12450 Rupees.
Photo Quality: This comes with 12Megapixel1/2.5 HD CMOS Sensor, which takes good quality pictures in daylight. Only drawback I found was, even though I took pictures in day light, images are getting darker some times. Photo burst and time lapse features are very helpful and works great. 

Gokarna Beach Trek

Gokarna beach trek was in my travel list from many years, but didn't get a chance to visit this beautiful place. I visited Gokarna when I was 13 years old, but didn't went for the trek. So when I came to know about this trek from prakash, with out any second thought, I blocked my calender. It was really a great experience visiting one of the best and picturesque beaches in India.
