  1. The title was far more encouraging than the content itself. The descriptions given here would be common knowledge for most travellers in India. A little more detail would have been appreciated.

      Thanks for the honest feedback Abhishek :). I guess the aim of the author was to make people who haven’t been to these places or havent heard of them aware that such nice places do exist in this country. Since the post already became quite lengthy, the author decided to give a peak-a-boo kind of descriptions. But would keep your comments in mind next time :).

    Hi. I really liked the places you’ve mentioned.. Choice is really worth appreciating!
    But what i want to say is.. they are some other places (in the spots uv mentioned)
    for eg: In lakshwadeep there is this island called the kadmath island. Iv been there several time. N beleive me i would any time prefer kadmath over kavaratti. kavaratti is like crowded.. kadmath is a really silent place.. serene..island of its own.. 🙂 so what i would like to suggest you is that give a bit more details about the places!

    • aseemrastogi2

      Thanks Shivani. The credit for this post goes to Natasha Dongre, a travel enthusiast. Nice to know you liked the post and the places mentioned. Thanks for your suggestion on incorporating more unknown and not – visited places. Shall keep that in mind :).
