It was a great experience visiting Delhi. I have gone there for three days and I almost covered most of the important destinations. Truly speaking I had a very good time in Delhi, the environment was little bit hot just because it is summers now, but rainfall saves me to some extent.

I reached Delhi on Friday morning from Railway station (NDLS) I have taken the Metro for Old Delhi and reached Red Fort. I have taken the ticket and entered the Great Red Fort. This monument is really amazing to visit. It was the main headquarters of the emperors of the Mughal dynasty for nearly 200 years, until 1857. It was built from 12 May 1639 to 6 April 1648. It almost took 8 years 10 months & 25 days for this monument to built. The architecture was amazing and the red stonework was so beautiful. I had spent almost 4-5 hours and covered most part of the Red Fort.

After that, I went to the old Delhi famous market for food. The taste is really good at a very affordable cost. After taking the lunch I moved to the next destination i.e. Humayun’s Tomb. This is one of the most beautiful buildings I have seen in my life. This Mughal architecture is very beautiful and symmetrical in design. No matter you are seeing it from any side it will be same in design. It is the Tomb of the Mughal Emporer Humayun. It was built by Hamida Banu Begum. The architecture name was Mirak Mirza Ghiyath. I had a great time there. The entrance gate was soo beautiful. After entering from the gate you have to take some steps toward the great Tomb. Overall it was a great time there. I really enjoyed there and also recommend others to visit this monument.

After spending 2 hours there, I moved to my another destination and it was Zoo. It was very difficult to cover the Zoo trip within 2 hours because I reached there around 4:15 PM and you can only take tickets for Zoo up to 4:30 PM and Zoo closed at 6:30 PM in summers. Even after having very less time, I manage to cover every part. I have seen multiple types of animals there. The best part was viewing the Lion. You can also take the internal buses for visiting the Zoo. They will help you to see the Zoo within a limited time-frame. The Zoo is full of Deer, Peacock etc. It was a good experience there. There I get to know that it was opened on 1959 and the total area is 71 ha.

So on my first day, I have covered these three locations – Red Fort, Humayun’s Tomb and Zoo.

On the second day, I start from Qutub Minar. After entering from the gate the first view of the Qutub Minar was amazing. The architecture and work was fantastic. The height of this giant monument is 73 metres. It is located in Mehrauli. So overall it was worth going there. I have spent more than 4 hours there. Apart from Qutub Minar there are 4 Iron Pillars also. There is also one more stone structure which is very similar to Qutub Minar which is left half built. May be the Mughal emperor was trying to build one more Qutub Minar. The Minar style is basically Iranian, though likely patterned on Afghanistan’s Minaret of Jam.

View of the Qutub Minar from the back side.

I get to know many historical facts there. The Qutub Minar is divided into 5 superposed, tapering storeys. The starting 3 comprises fluted cylindrical shafts or columns of pale red sandstone, separated by flanges and by storeyed balconies, carried on Muqarnas corbels. The 4th column is of marble and is relatively plain. The 5th is of marble and sandstone. Before 1974 it was allowed to enter the internal stairs of the Qutub Minar and you can go on the top of it to have a view of Delhi. But after an incident that was happened On 4 December 1981 the stairs was closed for the visitors. The staircase lighting failed and around 400 visitors stampeded towards the exit, and 45 were killed in that incident and some were injured.

The garden of the Qutub Minar is also very good and green. I relaxed there for a couple of hours. At Qutub Minar, visitors from all over the world came and enjoy the beauty and architecture of this great tower. One of the best thing that I had experienced at all these Moghul monuments is all the remains cool, even in the month of June and July they remain cool. After having such an experience at Qutub Minar I moved back to my hotel.

Then in the evening I again start my travel journey and I visit India Gate. It was worth visiting. I really enjoyed there. The height of the India Gate is 42 m. There I get to know that it was opened on 12 February 1931. India Gate was architecture by Edwin Lutyens. It was a lifetime experience there. People came there with their families and enjoy this spot as a picnic point.

On my last day of the journey, the third day. I visit the markets like Connaught place, Lajpat Nagar and Sarojini Nagar. So it was a great trip to Delhi and I recommend everyone to visit Delhi and enjoy all these historical monuments. Surely you will love it.

Best of luck for your trip.

Staying in a rental house for a short duration gives the guests a new experience. Sometimes good and sometimes bad and the main reason for the bad experiences is because of the bad neighbourhood. There are chances of property damage and theft in some places. Some of the guests have complained about the bad experiences they came across during their stay in the rental properties and they even requested for a refund from the rental website.

Since these properties are listed on the website, they consider that the company is responsible for the safety of the guest. The rental platform has also refunded the amount of some of the guests who had evidence and complaint reports on the scene. However, the guests must analyze well before buying the property and the safety tips are also shared by the rental platform on their official webpage that will help the guests on their future trips. Following certain safety measures will help the guests enjoy their trip to the fullest.

Are you planning a trip?

Some safety tips for the guests that will give them the key points to look through before booking the rental property.

Profile verification

Each listing has its profile of the host and the reviews regarding the rental property that has to be viewed by the guest before planning to book the spot. The guests must also check for further details of the references, social media networks and verified contact numbers and even ask for their complete details before proceeding further. The guests who have already visited the place and those who have stayed there will comment on the platform and send reviews that will help in deciding whether to choose the property or not.

Reputed and best rental properties are given high rank on the rental forum. The host would have described all the details pertaining to the property, the house rules and the amenities that give a clear idea of how the locality and the property look like. The main aspect that the guest must make a note of, is the cancellation policy addressed by the host in the platform and the guest must go through it before submitting the request for the property.

Communicate before booking the property

Communications and transactions that are made outside the rental website make it difficult for the company to protect the guest information and other security related factors. Even in the Terms and Service policy, the company has mentioned that it does not encourage transactions outside the website and the online rental property provider requests the guests to communicate within the platform. Using the messaging system within the platform helps the guests to check whether they are required to give the common specific amenities. The guests can use the same platform to communicate about the check-in details, once they book the rental property.

Communicate with the hosts, after learning about their profile and the reviews, the traveller must discuss with them about their plans. Since the locals are aware of the locality and the places more than the travel guides and websites. Nobody will compel the guest to book the property if they do not have a positive feel about booking the property they have to stay out of it. And if they feel uncomfortable talking to the host or any other difficulties, it is better to contact the rental platform.

Familiarize with the place

Before booking the property the guest must be aware of the neighbourhood and collect the details about the landmarks and roads in the area. If it is a long distance travel, then the guest must inform their family and friends about their stay and signing up with the travel insurance is a better option, however, this option is not available on this platform, and it is an affordable option that protects the travellers from emergency situations. Some of the insurance policies cover for the travel delays and the lost luggage. The local insurance provider will provide more details about this option.

In the case of international travel, consulting the relevant government agencies about the travel advice and warnings that apply to the countries the passenger wishes to travel.

Be a considerate guest

Travelling with the rental website offers an ocean of opportunities for the guests to stay in unique places and connect with different kinds of people and community. And to enjoy the destination as a local and to create memories and stories, the guest must be aware of some important points and tips that will enhance their trip.

Things to follow before booking

  • The guests must acquire a verified Id and explain their story in their profile because the hosts wish to know about the guest who will stay with them and it also gives them the assurance that they can accept the requests that are put forth by the guests.
  • The rental property has a list of options in their listing, from shared rooms, condos to private house, so the guests must make sure that the property suits their needs and that they are comfortable with the house rules.
  • The hosts have mentioned in detail about the property in the listing, so the guests must take time in reading the details and make sure whether the place matches the guest or not.
  • The other travellers who have visited the place write reviews on the listing, reading those reviews will give an idea about the place, the accessibilities and the facilities in that area. These reviews will help in deciding whether to book the property or not.
  • The contact details like the phone number or the email address will be shared by the host on the listing; the guests can contact the host and ask all the queries directly to them. This conversation benefits both the host and the guest.

Things to follow before the trip

  • If the guest needs any specific arrangements to be made on the property or any other help, they have to inform all the needs beforehand to the host so that they will inform whether they can make those arrangements or not.
  • If the guest knows that they will reach the property later than the check-in time, they must inform the host in advance.

Things to follow on the trip

  • The guest must be committed to the house rules and check-in and checkout timings and communicate with the host about their schedule.
  • The guests must keep in mind that they are staying at the place for a short period of time and so they have to maintain a good relationship with their host and neighbours because they are the ones who help in times of need.
  • Involving with the local businesses and neighbourhood activities will make the trip more interesting and makes way to learn about their culture and custom.
  • The guests might have booked the lodging only for them if they want to invite another guest or friends home; it is a good idea to seek the permission of the host before welcoming them.

Things to do at the end of the trip

  • Once when the trip is over and the guest have arrived at their place, they can leave reviews on the listing about their experience, the house, the neighbourhood and other experiences.
  • The reviews posted by the guests must be honest ones because there are many other people like them decide to rent the property depending on the reviews, so any issues or problems faced by the guest can be shared by them so that the others will be benefitted.
  • The hosts will also leave a review on how they feel about the guest.

Here I have listed all the required information about the best places to visit in Mussoorie. Hope this information will help you.

Mussoorie Tourism - Get Tourism Info

Mussoorie is a hill station and is around 35 kilometres from Dehradun. My experience was really awesome. I and my family really enjoyed this place. Surely your will love the Mussoorie. There are so many tourist spots available in Mussoorie where you can visit. But my favourite tourist destination was Company Garden and Gun Hill after that Kempty Falls. Initially, we reached Company Garden and have started our journey in Mussoorie from there and it was a very good place here you can find out different types of flowers. The main flower with different categories was Rose. We have never seen such types of rose before. In Company Garden you can also do boating and you can also enjoy the big rides. Food and refreshment facilities are also really good in Company Garden. I really enjoyed this place. Mussoorie tourism is one of the tourism holiday destination in India.

After that, we moved to the Gun Hill. It was also a good experience there. You have to take the Cable Car if you want to go to Gun Hill because it is at some height from the normal. So you can go there with the help of cable car. I have really enjoyed the beauty of nature there. We have taken so many photographs also. But now people have made this place more like as a picnic spot. I think it is the second highest point of the Mussoorie. You can also see the Himalayas range from there. Mussoorie tourism is world famous. Mussoorie tourism provides different types of destinations to the tourists and people came there from different countries and cities.

Mall Road Mussoorie

Then we moved to the Kempty Falls by taking the way from the Mall Road. Mall Road is a famous shopping market there. You can find different types of shops there for apparels and different types of jewellery. If you are staying there for one night then you should take a walk on the Mall road. I bet it will be an amazing experience. The Mall Road of Mussoorie is better than Shimla. It’s like a fair you are roaming in. My experience was really amazing at Mall road, I really enjoyed there with my family. There you can find out the best affordable gifts for your loved one. Most amazing artworks, wooden gifts and amazing sculptures. The Mall road of Mussoorie is really awesome, you should stay in Mussoorie for a night and enjoy the Mall road shopping.

After that, we moved fastly to Kempty Falls. And after reaching Kempty Falls I take the next step in my journey. Kempty Falls is really a nice place to visit. But there is a huge hustle and bustle there. When I had a conversation with some people there then I get to know that people from different people came here not only from India but from foreign countries also. It was a nice experience there seeing water falling down from a height and people are enjoying there by taking bath in that water. There is also a temple there. So many people also used to go there. Mussoorie tourism is having a large number of tourist visitors every year.

I have also visited the Mussoorie Christ Church. It was a very peaceful area. There are so many other tourist destinations also like Bhatta Falls Dehradun, Lake Mist, Jharipani Fall and Mussoorie Lake so I have spent some of my time at these spots also. But as I have limited time. So I am not able to enjoy these locations more. Mussoorie tourism is one of the most visited places in India.

We also went to the George Everest Point in Mussoorie. But truly speaking it was not a good experience there because we don’t find anything interesting there. I believe this is also one of the highest point/peaks of Mussoorie, there they have arranged some adventure sports, but when we visited there, nothing was functional so we had not enjoyed there.

But overall it was a nice trip to Mussoorie. I really enjoyed all the places. And I highly recommend you people also to visit Mussoorie at least one time. But I recommend you to take at least 3 days trip to Mussoorie, because if you are going for only 1-2 days then you can’t cover all the tourist spots. So take at least 3 days trip. Mussoorie tourism is very famous in India also in the world. Every year thousands of movies shot in Mussoorie.
