Hotel vs Hostel

We all know about hotels. Hotels are generally searched by ordinary tourists who look for comfort, privacy or with family. They may be expensive or cheaper, but not as cheaper as the hostels. Hostels are made for real budget travelers who like to gain new experiences and meet like minded people during their stay.

But hostels only offer a bed or dormitory and not a private room and attached bathrooms like hotels. You will have to spend the night with other travelers in the same hall where a number of beds are placed like train berths. Sometimes, privacy or security may be a concern for some people in hostels, so they need some reliable hostel networks or companies where they can stay without any anxiety. That is why I am telling you about two major hostel networks in India which you must try at least once.

What is Zostel?

You must have seen the ads of Zostel in social media platforms like Instagram or Facebook or Google ads. It is a branded hostel network across India and available across all major cities and tourist places. You can get a bed or dormitory at a price as low as Rs 399 only. Sometimes the prices may rise upto Rs 600-700, but that depends upon availability and destination. Besides India, some Zostel hostels are also available in Nepal also.

क्या थाईलैंड में सेक्स टूरिज्म या देह व्यापार क़ानूनी है? Is sex tourism legal in Thailand?

थाईलैंड टूरिज्म: एक नजर दोस्तों जैसा की आप यह भली भांति जानते हैं की थाईलैंड tourism दुनिया भर में काफी लोकप्रिय है जिसका प्रमुख कारण वहां का sex tourism या देह व्यापार है। थाईलैंड में घूमने के लिए तो बहुत सारी चीजें हैं- जैसे खूबसूरत sea beaches, मंदिर, पुराने स्मारक या historical monuments वगैरह। लेकिन फिर भी ऐसा माना जाता है की मुख्यतः लोग वहां जिस चीज के लिए जाते हैं वो sex tourism ही है, बाकी सभी चीजें secondary है या उतने important नहीं हैं। थाईलैंड यात्रा: कोलकाता से बैंकाक (Thailand Trip: Kolkata to Bangkok) बैंकाक से पटाया (Bangkok to Pattaya) पटाया की एक शाम और कोरल द्वीप की सैर (Walking Street and Coral Island, Pattaya) बैंकाक शहर- वाट फ़ो और वाट अरुण (Bangkok City: Wat Pho and Wat Arun) Buy Thailand 4G SIM(Siam Center, BKK or DMK Airport Pick Up) कुछ लोग ऐसे भी कहते मिलेंगे की एक बार थाईलैंड जाने के बाद character certificate बनवाना पड़ेगा क्योंकि वहां जाने का मतलब है चरित्र में दाग लगना ! वैसे ये कुछ conservative या पुराने ख्यालात वाले लोग ही कह सकते हैं, क्यों

Top 4 waterfalls of Jharkhand- Hundru, Dassam, Hirni and Jonha

When the word ‘Jharkhand’ comes in our mind, we think forest, greenery, hills, valley, rivers etc. Jharkhand is such a state in our country which is very rich in mines and minerals, flora and fauna, but unfortunately, due to whatever reason, tourism has not sprouted here like other Indian states. This is still a tourist deficient region but in no way it ever means that it has not the capability to attract the mass. Jharkhand has almost every package that any traveler needs, it has a lot of possibilities in tourism. Jharkhand has got everything from the mother nature, but lacks only the fundamental and infrastructural development.   Hills and Valleys of Jharkhand- Parasnath, Netarhat, Dalma and Kiriburu. Panchghagh Falls: The safest waterfall near Khunti-Ranchi in Jharkhand  As I have already mentioned that Jharkhand has everything- hills, waterfalls, valley, rivers, but this post will be dedicated to the waterfalls of Jharkhand.
