Destination Guides Map

So far, I’ve lived in Indonesia, India, and visited Singapore dozens of times. Then there are a few other neighboring countries I’ve visited. To keep track of my footsteps, this page will help you navigate the site better.

Be it for a backpacking trip or a family vacation, these guides have you covered. The map below highlights all the places you can find on this site.

  • Red marker: In-depth guides on places
  • Blue regions: Blogs, itineraries, and travel stories.

*Many places have both guides and blogs but the guides are given priority, as they anyhow contain links to related blogs and suggested itineraries.


Visited places: Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Goa, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Himachal Pradesh. Articles on Gujarat and Rajasthan are guest contributions.


Visited countries: Vietnam, Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia. Articles on Oman and Saudi Arabia are guest posts. Lastly, there are some posts on New Zealand out of this map’s reach (again, not by me). Find them here.

Understanding Travel

The maps above (including that New Zealand link) addresses all the travel-related posts as far as I’m aware. Really – That’s all of it. The remaining pieces on this blog are more general-yet-insightful travel tips.

For example did you know that if you wear a hat, your chances of getting stuck in immigration without a return flight ticket are super less? No, that’s a joke. Yet I’ve done it and it somehow worked (don’t try it though). But on a serious note, tell me another way to save up on accommodation other than budget hostels. Trickly? That’s where my budget tips come handy.

I write some posts here and quite a handful on Medium as well.

  1. Benefits of Travel Solo
  2. Indonesian basics that make your SE Asia trip sweeter
  3. Things I learned living off a Backpack
  4. Beauty of a traveler’s adaptibility
  5. How a Travel Insurance helps a long way

Top Travel Resources I Use

Turning 21, I’ve had a lot of adventures in India – I backpacked to the blistering cities of Chirala, Vijayawada, and Chennai and made road trips to the chilly spots like Ooty and Coonoor. Oh, and how about the calming sun of Arambol Beach, Goa?

In 2022, I made a 5-days solo trip to Singapore where it wasn’t all about just a vacation. I learned a lot more about managing my expenses and travel. There’s so much more to it.

The best ways to find cheap accommodations, dealing with locals, commuting from one place to another, and ultimately learning to travel better. These are what make travel resources afterall.

Here are the resources I keep in my pocket whenever it comes to traveling, – sites that I trust and that fascinate me for accommodation, flights and transport, package tours, and travel insurance: – For accommodation, this is my go-to site for cheap stays and a wide range of availabilities. They also offer many other booking facilities like attractions, rental cars, and flights.

HostelWorld – This is my favorite site to book stays from as a traveler. is less known by tourists and more by savvy budget travelers. It’s a great way to find budget stays and other enthusiastic travelers too! – When visiting Asia, particularly the SouthEast Asia, keep this site handy. For the best tour packages, great deals on attractions, restaurants, hotels, car rentals – this is the answer you’re looking for. – This is a very different type of travel resource, but for a traveler in India looking for a down-to-earth experience, interacting with the locals of an offbeat place, exploring nature immersively, make sure to check this out.

How to Travel the World Better

Destination guides are of great help when visiting places. But there’s more to travel. Whether it’s traveling on a tight budget, immersing in an experience, being responsible on your journey, or deciding whether to travel solo, there’s much more to it.

Making yourself a responsible and better traveler not only helps your trip get better but also the locals of the place you visit. Besides, these also can be of sweet stories to read on your trip itself.

Here are a couple of my posts:

Stay tuned. There’s more to come!
