I am generally quite caught up with my busy work schedule and hence, I needed a break for long. I got an invite for a close friend’s anniversary party in Delhi recently, so I was quite excited to attend it to be part of my friend’s happiness and also catch up with my group. So I planned my trip and packed by bags for my visit to the capital city of India.

The very first thing that I checked was the flight ticket availability and also picked a hotel for my stay in the city online. Via this blog, I will share all my wonderful experiences of the trip to Delhi, so stay tuned!

Air Canada – The Best of Air Hospitality

I searched for the entire list of airlines that offer affordable flights between Chennai and Delhi and finally, I decided to book my round-trip tickets with Air Canada flight number 6429. Air Canada offers comfortable air travel at the lowest airfares in this sector. Moreover, I had traveled a couple of times with this airline and hence, I trust this brand with its high quality onboard services and amenities.

My flight departed the Terminal 4 of the Chennai Airport at 9.05 pm and reached the Indira Gandhi International Airport at New Delhi at 11.55 pm. The flight landed at T3 of the IGIA.

World-Class Amenities at Indira Gandhi International Airport

I had been a couple of times to the New Delhi Airport but every time I visit this airport, I am truly happy with the level of airport amenities and services offered here. There are a host of eating joints and cafes inside the airport. Moreover, there are ample washrooms, seating area, smoking room, ATMs and modern high performance conveyer belt for fast baggage check-in.

I had a sip of coffee at one of the cafes at the airport and as I went out at the arrivals area, the airport shuttle offered by my hotel was already waiting to drive me to my accommodation in the city which I had pre-booked online.

Florence Inn – Sophistication and Elegance Embodied

As I reached the hotel, I checked in at the reception and I was guided to my room by an extremely courteous staff. This three-star property located at Karol Bagh, opposite to the Puja Park in New Delhi, is merely at a distance of 15 kilometres from the airport. The popular tourist attractions such as the Jama Masjid, Rashtrapati Bhavan and Jantar Mantar are in close proximity of this hotel. Some of the amenities and personalized services offered by the Florence Inn hotel include:

  • Air conditioned and spacious well-furnished rooms
  • In-house restaurant
  • Round-the-clock room service
  • Writing desk
  • LED Television with satellite cable connection
  • Refrigerator

The hotel offers a very comfortable and memorable stay at really affordable prices. I reached my hotel around 12 am midnight and therefore, I retired for the night and was looking forward to meeting my friends at the engagement party the next day.

Jaipur To Udaipur – A Small But Memorable Trip For Me

Being creative in the world of fashion is highly important. When it comes to binging in creativity then there are many options one can consider, such as travelling to new places, checking out the work of others, etc. This is the reason why I always love attending fashion shows in other cities. My last visit to Udaipur was one such trip, and I was there to attend a fashion show. Even though the place where I live that is Jaipur isn’t very far or different from Udaipur, but travelling is always fun.

For small distance journey, railway is the best option in India. This is the reason why I started looking for trains from Jaipur to Udaipur. After searching a little, I decided to book my berth in Jaipur Udaipur City Superfast Special (09721). From Jaipur to Udaipur, the rail distance is 428 kms, and this train takes 7 hours to complete the journey. Finally the day arrived and I was at the railway junction of Jaipur. The train arrived exactly on time, i.e. at 06:15 am.

Beginning my journey from Jaipur to Udaipur & hotel stay!

AC chair car category of trains is quite apt for small journeys, and hence I didn’t feel any kind of discomfort during those 7 hours. Since it was superfast train, therefore hardly any significant amount of delay was made. By the time the train arrived at the Udaipur station, it was 13:30 hours. Now, it was the time for me to head towards the hotel that I had booked. I was a little tired after the journey, and fortunately the hotel was selected perfectly by me.

After booking my train tickets, I did some good amount of planning regarding the selection of hotel in Udaipur. Quite obviously, there are numerous online travel portals available these days and hence looking into the hotel options wasn’t difficult. I had some Udaipur hotels in mind, such as The Ananta Udaipur, Hotel Ashish Palace, Treebo Vatika Inn, and Hotel Gorbandh Udaipur.

During the selection process, I checked out the reviews, the location, and the tariffs associated with the hotels mentioned above. After careful consideration, I went ahead with Hotel Gorbandh Udaipur. Located close to City Center, this hotel is quite a good option for the shopaholics.

Shopping in Udaipur is always fun

Once I reached the hotel, I had some good food and a powerful nap. In the evening, it was time for some shopping. The hotel manager had suggested me two wonderful places for shopping, and they were-

Shilpgram Udaipur– It was only 3 km away from the city center, and if you have penchant for handicraft items and rural arts then it is a must check out place for you. I loved almost everything about its rustic ambience, and the art works were the true representation of Rajasthani culture.

The Celebration Mall– Located at Bhuwana, this modern mall offered me a good reason to spend my money on clothes, fashion accessories, and footwear as well. I also watched a movie in one of the multiplexes. At the end of the day, I had a big smile on my face.
