Hostel Review – Tubotel

During a short getaway to Langalawi, I stayed at a beautiful hostel Tubotel, which was highly recommended by various travel forums. Located on Sungai Chenang (Chenang River), Tubotel provides breathtaking views of sunrise and sunset.

Their barrel-like rooms, made of huge drainage pipes, are vibrant and colorful. As it was off season, I was lucky to get an entire room for myself. Staff there are very courteous and helpful. Tubotel has a full-fledged bar and there is also provision for private rooms. I must say till now, one of the best hostels I have ever stayed.

Fort Kochi – An Explosion Of Color

My trip to Fort Kochi was short and quick, but enough to completely blew my mind with beautiful surroundings, cute cafes, colorful buildings and vibrant street arts. It was Onam and most of the shops were closed. Yet, I had my share of fun. Every nook and corner you will spot quirky colorful paintings. The following images might give you an idea how vibrant the place is.

Over the past 10 years the world has seen economic ebbs and flows, evolving global competition and partnership, and boundless technological innovation. But, one thing has remained constant: people’s growing desire to travel the world, visit new landscapes and immerse themselves in other cultures. Mastercard’s Global Destination Cities Index, released today, quantifies this desire: since 2009, the number of international overnight visitors grew an astounding 76 %.

This year, the Global Destination Cities Index-which ranks 200 cities based on proprietary analysis of publicly available visitor volume and spend data-reveals that Bangkok remains the No. 1 destination, with more than 22 million international overnight visitors. Paris and London, in flipped positions this year, hold the No. 2 and 3 spots, respectively both hovering over 19 million. All top 10 cities saw more international overnight visitors in 2018 than the prior year, with the exception of London, which decreased nearly 4 percent. The forecast for 2019 indicates across-the-board growth, with Tokyo expecting the largest uptick in visitors.
