  1. I have been following transindiatravels for quite sometime and suggestions about places to visit is so helpful. His work is commendable. He diligently writes about every little detail about the places worth visiting, which makes it so much easier for people like me who are planning to travel within India. Thank you very much,. Just one request though. It would be more helpful if he also mentioned the hotels he stayed in and if he would recommend them. Choosing hotel is the most daunting task while planning travels.
