10 Genius Travel Hacks to Make Your Travel Easier

17 08 2017

Travelling is a part of life. People travel for fun and for work. Many people live out of a suitcase. Whether you are a business traveler or are going on a vacation, packing can be daunting. We have some simple and useful travel hacks for you. These tips will help you while packing, when you are at your destination and once you are back home.

1.Roll Your Clothes

Most of us like to carry a lot of clothes while travelling. Well, who doesn’t want to show-off their travel style? While packing clothes, roll them instead of folding. This not only saves space but also makes your clothes less prone to wrinkling.

2.Use a Tissue

One more thing that you can do to avoid creases, is to line your suitcase with a tissue paper.

3.Scan the Documents

Before you leave, scan your important documents like passport, ID and other papers. You can also simply click pictures of them. Keep all these in your phone for offline access. One more good tip is to email these pictures to yourself so that in case you lose your phone and documents, you will still have access to important documents.

4.Carry a Pen

Always carry a pen while travelling. You will need to fill customs and immigration forms so relying on your own pen is way better than asking others for one. This is definitely a Genius Travel Hack to Make Your Travel Easier.

5.Use the ‘Fragile’ Tag

While taking a flight, many people complain about their luggage not being handled well. To save your stuff, mark your luggage as ‘Fragile’. Marked items are handled carefully by the airlines staff and are placed on top. This way your luggage reaches first to conveyor belt also.

6.Keep Valuables Close

Wearing a fanny-pack keeps your documents and valuables close to you, keeping them safe. If you don’t like this idea, buy a small sling pouch that is meant to be worn like a regular sling bag but under your clothes.

7.Use Local ATMs

Getting local currency after reaching your travel destination is essential. It is best to use ATMs for the purpose. Use your credit or debit card at local ATMs to avoid currency-exchange charges at money conversion counters. This is probably the most important among these Genius Travel Hacks to Make Your Travel Easier.

8.Unpack Judiciously

Don’t unpack all of your stuff at the hotel. Take out only the things you need. This saves time and energy when you have to pack again for going back home.

9.Eat Local

It is always best to eat local food. Food is a great way to explore a new place. You will surely find new dishes that you love. Eating local is cheaper too.

5 Fun Things to do in Jaipur This Monsoon

24 07 2017

Rainy season is probably the most awaited as the weather becomes cool but not cold. The drizzling rain-drops make the surroundings romantic giving you the optimum climate to have some fun. Jaipur is always beautiful but it takes a new form in monsoon. The holy Saawan month falls during the season and the whole city gets colorful. Plan a trip to Jaipur right now as we are giving you the most compelling reasons-

1.Trekking to the Hills

Pink city turns into green city during monsoons. All the hills get covered in green coat of plants. This is the best season to walk up and down these hills. Trekking around Samode, Amer, Galtaji and many more locations is a cathartic experience when there is so much beauty to lay your eyes upon. Even if you are not much of a walker, you can go for small strolls to freshen up in the cool breeze.

Besides roaming around in the greenery, you can admire the beauty of palatial monuments like Amber fort, Nahargarh fort and Jaigarh fort. After a tiring trek, simply rent a Segway scooter and drive throughout these grand structures for a brush with history.

2.Night Tourism

The historical buildings of Jaipur look even more intriguing during night. Driving on the streets of the city during night is an amazing experience all thanks to beautifully lit structures like Hawa Mahal, Albert Hall, Jal Mahal and the forts. Don’t miss the grand Sound and Light Show at Abmer Fort.

3.Shop for Leheriya

Leheriya is a colorful print from Rajasthan that is available only during monsoon. You shouldn’t miss the opportunity of taking home this colorful fabric. Leheriya print is available on sarees, scarves, jackets, tops, skirts and even pants. Whatever your style, leheriya has got what you want.

4.Witness Teej Festival

Devraj Niwas- Home for delightful choices of breakfast for our guests

26 09 2016

Breakfast is considered to be the most important meal of the day. In India, some eat parathas or poha with curd and pickle and some prefer going for fruits, juices and cereals. At Devraj Niwas, we serve various kinds of breakfast ranging from Indian to American to our in-house guests. The breakfast hours are, however, fixed from 7 am to 10 am.  So, let’s take a walk to see what all kinds of breakfast we offer:

1. Continental Breakfast

Right after you wake up, take a stroll around and enjoy the morning with some scrumptious continental breakfast. From juices to sandwiches, morning continental breakfast can be taken up in many ways. At Devraj Niwas, you can choose between various juices like Orange, Pineapple or Tomato and toast with jam or marmalade (fruit preserve made from the juice and peel of citrus fruits) applied on it. Doesn’t it sound yum?

2. Indian Breakfast

If you would love some light Indian breakfast then Poha is a must try with maybe curd or tea. But if you are one of those who want the breakfast to be really heavy, then stuffed paratha with pickle or curd would be great for you. And adding some Punjabi touch to it by having a glass full of lassi would also do. And trust us, after this your stomach would have no hunger pangs till lunch.

3. South Indian Breakfast

As we all know that South India is famous for its coconuts. So, how can we not have yummy coconut chutney in breakfast? Having idli and vada with sambhar and mixing the coconut chutney in it changes its taste completely. You have an option of going for Uppma which is again a great option for a comparatively lighter breakfast.

4. American Breakfast

How do you like your eggs, Monsieur? Boiled, fried, poached, omelette or scrambled; choose from these and we will get you the tastiest of your favorite egg dish. You can also add it on the toast. Just in case, you are not a fan of eggs then you can layer up the toast with jam or marmalade; have juices or cereals with hot/ cold milk.
