Eiffel Tower...As beautiful as it gets 

The first thing that we can Imagine about Paris is The Eiffel tower. The metal structure that has the power to inspire romance. When The Eiffel tower was erected in 1889, it attracted criticism from many renowned artists and intellects of France regarding the design. Believe it or not but Eiffel tower was first intended to be built in Barcelona but later constructed in Paris as temporary feature and was almost torn down in 1909. La dame de fer  was the nickname given to the beautiful tower which means The Iron Lady.

The tower was named after the engineer Alexandra Gustave Eiffel whose company constructed the Eiffel tower, It was considered to be the tallest man-made structure for almost 40 long years. It was famously said that Hitler conquered France but couldn't conquer The Eiffel tower, well a saying which truly exhibits the mighty character of the structure.

If you are planning to visit Paris and will obviously visit The Eiffel tower then you better book your tickets online to avoid the long lines, The Eiffel tower is open for visitors for all the 365 days. As a visitor you will have the access to 3 levels, the first two have couple of great restaurants overlook the city and the third level is an observatory to view the city encircling the tower.

I will be posting such small insight about the places that you should visit before you get a call from the devil. Share it if you like it. Thanks and have a great day.

Amazing Dubai

Amazing Dubai 


Amazing Dubai is a part of The United Arab Emirates and it a vacation hotspot for any type of traveller.  Dubai was built on a desert and today it is the part of an elite club of most modern cities in the world.  


Dubai is famous for Luxury shopping, Ultra-modern architecture and a die for Nightlife, having said that Dubai has very well preserved its rich cultural beauty. Dubai has been the talk of the town because of having built the world’s tallest building and the job has been done so well that the building “Burj Khalifa” is just not the tallest but one of the most beautiful building to admire once you have a glance at it.

Sikkim The state of Himalaya

Sikkim is a delight to travel. An Indian State surrounded by the great Himalayan mountains. The scenic beauty is heavenly. Recently I had an opportunity to travel to Gangtok, the capital city of Sikkim. The city is built in the heart of the Mountain ranges so don’t be afraid to climb and to decent a lot during the day, it is like hiking whenever you step out of the hotel.

Gangtok is a place where you can go and enjoy the weather, meditate and inhale all the scenic beauty or if you love some action then there is a lot of adventure sports you can check out but if you plan to shop then probably it is not the best destination. There is only one road which has been converted into a walking plaza, it is called as mall road, where you will find many restaurant and shops of different kinds ranging from international brands to local merchandise shops. 
Reaching Gangtok is a 4 hrs drive from Darjeeling or 4 hrs drive from the nearest airport which is situated at Bagdogra, but rest assure that you…
