The Lalit, Jaipur

Who is not fond of luxury? Well I am one person who works hard and loves to party harder to the core! So I love to indulge in luxury whenever I get to. After long hours at the hospital for weeks, whenever I take a break, I make sure that every moment of my relax time is well spent. So its a five star hotel stay for me whenever possible. I don't drink neither I smoke. So I believe that I can afford pampering myself and my family once in a while. That is why I earn! I won't say that I can afford a five star every place I go (we are frequent travelers). But whenever we stay in a luxury property, my wife keeps on raving for months! Last year we had an incredible stay in The Lalit Jaipur and it was one memorable experience!

Varanasi remains one of the most visited cities in India for Indian tourists as well as foreigners. Travellers have various reasons for visiting this place. Remember the movie Queen? When Kangna Ranaut asks Lisa Haydon whether she has been to India, Lisa says she had been to Varanasi. The reason being she got the best 'Hashish' there :D he he..Well as I said people have different reasons for visiting this place. Some get good cannabis here while others come for a deeper insight into religion. In a nutshell, its a fantastico place!  Although its the city of Hinduism, Varanasi is one of the largest Buddhist centres of India. This is one big reason while celebrities like Richard Gere, Goldie Hawn, Sharon Stone, Ashley Judd, etc etc come here. Recently, even Lauren Conrad too touched this city. How I wish I would have been there!
This place is the epicentre of Buddhism as Lord Buddha made his first followers here. Also if you still remember history, Emperor Ashoka, the ruler of Maur…
