Mumbai not just comprises of an expansive network of local bus transport considered as the best method of travel yet in addition a vast armada of buses interfacing other significant urban communities. Buses are less expensive when contrasted with other modes of transport, where Kolhapur is effectively reachable from Mumbai all by taking a bus.

A trip from Mumbai to Kolhapur is best experienced in a bus. I generally prefer buses while venturing out starting with one city then onto the next. I booked online tickets from and decided on Anand Travels AC Sleeper transport. I boarded the transport from Borivali at 7:30pm and reached Kolhapur on the following day at 5am. The travel took almost 9 hours, yet the journey experience was agreeable and hassle-free. On the off chance, that you do not wish to miss a solitary snapshot of this street trip, at that point taking the seat by the window will be the correct decision, as you will get a hypnotizing perspective of the spots as you pass by!

The Flea markets in Mumbai are simply awesome. How can I not mention anything about the few that I visited. I was told by my friends that I must not miss the Chor Bazaar.. and I was wondering what it could be like!  Antiques, furniture, treasures name it and you could see it.  As I just strolled across this market, I immediately realised that a day is not going to be enough to explore this wonderful place and I was sure that I could lay my hands on some gems before I go back home. The other flea market that I was sure to visit was Crawford Market as I had heard a lot about this place and I finally did make it here.

This place was simply awesome.  I could see small vendors in a narrow lane but the place was full of anything and everything.  Right from electrical fittings, to household articles to decorative items. Avoid going here during the weekends and during festivals as this is extremely crowded and you will even find it difficult to move ahead.  On the other side of the city one must not miss out on the Esselworld and WaterKingdom, if you are travelling with kids. Ensure that you have one full day to spend in this location.

I was travelling from the ‘City of Dreams’ to a city where I can explore a horde of attractions it was a quick outing plan just for a change of atmosphere. Fascinating history, clamouring shopping paths and neighbourhood liberalities are a portion of the things that draw in travellers to Kolhapur. Disregarding the way that, there are various methods for reaching Kolhapur from Mumbai, a bus ride will be the most captivating one as you will go through great towns, old structures and lush green fields.

My 3 days stay in Kolhapur comprised of an agenda of spots to visit like Mahalaxmi sanctuary, Town Hall Museum, Old Palace, Rankala Lake and some more. My whole idea was to contribute vitality with my friends and take some incredible rest!

Many and more people are hopping onto the vegan bandwagon and switching to a healthier way of eating and living. Consuming vegan food has its own benefits, and while some consider it to be extreme, the results are there for all to see. Just ask Peter Dinklagege aka Tyrion Lannister about it. And if you do, pass our regards to him! A visit to these vegan restaurants in Singapore could win you over.


Given that their located in easily accessible locations, the fastest way to reach these food joints would be to get a bus from

and tour the city-side while you are at it.



Sunny Choice: Based in Rail Mall, Sunny Choice does not draw much attention to it, keeping itself simple and fresh and all things vegan. Cold-pressed juice is served before the mains for that enzyme boost and its organic produce includes fruits, vegetables and even chia seeds.



Create Healthy Lifestyle Café: An organic café that not delivers on the quality of the products but on the price points too! Its budget-friendly menu does pull in a large number of people. So if you are up for sharing your table with other customers and don’t mind the constant piping of sounds.



Kampung Senang: This is one is not just healthy, but looks to give back to the society in whatever manner possible, being an eco-conscious charity that looks to aid cancer patients. Their organic kitchen is also connected to their Holistic Lifestyle Centre that promotes holistic health and detoxification to several institutions through its many programs.




Original Sin: The enduring popularity of this Mediterranean vegetarian restaurant in Chip Bee Gardens is a marvel in fickle Singapore, where so many restaurants open and close in a blink. A marvel, but not surprising. Founded in 1997 by owner-chef Italian-Australian Marisa Bertocchi, it’s maintained impeccable standards and stayed true to its lights; we’ve been regulars since 2001.
In the same way that South Indian vegetarian food is so satisfying, that carnivores might not even notice the absence of fish or flesh on the menu.




Pollen: There are only a few restaurants in Singapore that can boast of private Mediterranean herbs and vegetable gardens. This restaurant is known to serve fresh produce that is used liberally all over the dish. The dishes are decorated in a pretty manner and the best thing about the menu are these starters. Make sure to try out over roasted baby beetroots and curd. There are also two healthy main course options that you can indulge in like roasted artichoke and salt bake celeriac with truffle.




Real Food: The best place in the city to have organic food is undoubtedly Real Food. This beautiful vegetarian restaurant has about four outlets on the entire street. It was started by 3 friends who were tired of the unrecognizable ingredients in food. The dishes contain a mix of soy, garlic, onion. It is completely gluten free. Real Food is one of the most visited joints by the locals living here.

Apart from the manmade water waves that the park features there is ample of plush greenery in the park. It also features plains of rivers and pond gardens. This makes it a must visit amongst tourists. The locals living nearby also keep visiting here for recreational activities.


If you want to cut yourself off from air pollution and are looking for a detox, this is the place. This garden is just top notch and you will find some occasional fast food joints and hotels in and around the garden. Different events are organised at different times of the year and they ensure that you and your kids have a gala time here.

Alor Setar is the capital of Kedah State in Malaysia. It is one of the most beautiful central gateways to the famous Langkawi Island. It is the second largest city in Malaysia and is about 400 kms away from Kuala Lumpur. The place is considered to be quite important as it is home to the CSAC which is the central state administration centre of Kota Setar District. A bus ride from Singapore to Alor Setar will cost you just SGD50. Most of the buses drop you off at the Alor Setar Bus Terminal. There are about 3 buses plying on this route and the total distance is about 795 kms. The buses are well maintained and are chauffered by some of the most skilled drivers that ensure a safe journey.


Bus is one of the most cost effective way of travelling from Singapore to Alor Setar. Most of the locals as well as the tourists prefer to use bus services to ply between this route just because the services are reliable and far more convenient compared to other available means of transportations. Not only is the journey between Singapore and Alor Setar cheap, but it is also quite convenient. This is because the roads have been quitewell maintained by the Trasnport Corporation. The trip from Singapore to Alor Setar might take about 5 to 6 hours if you are travelling during the day depending on traffic conditions. If you are some one like me who prefers to travel in the dead of the night then you will reach your destination in 3 hours. One of the best parts of travelling by bus is that you will come across different sceneries during your journey and plush green landscapes. People visit Alor Setar vastly due to its Malay culture and the green plantation site that it possesses. I recommend you to visit the popular tourist attractions in Alor Setar like Kedah Paddy which is an educational site and Pekan Rabu Complex which is known for its local and traditional products. If you have some extra time make sure to visit the magnificient Zaheer Mosque which is based on Moorish architecture. I found my Bus journey to be luxurious at reasonable prices and I did not have to go to the booking office for booking my bus tickets. I just visited from my laptop and booked my tickets within a couple of minutes.


The different Bus Operators plying on this route are Maju Express, Konsortium Express and several other local companies. These two operators are highly preferred because of their services and punctuality. They are known to depart sharp at the specified departure time. Not only are their buses equipped with all the modern facilities but also ensure customer satisfaction. The different pick up points in Singapore from where buses depart are Golden Mile Complex, Duta Bus Station and the popular Puduraya Bus Station. I boarded my bus from Golden Mile Complex as advised to me by a friend of mine.

Shopping at Little India is definitely not, your regular roadside shopping. You may feel that Little India in completely out of place in a city like Singapore where there are countless futuristic mega malls that feature costly designer brands in air-conditioned enclosures. However, this is not true. Little India is a complete different story altogether, one that will leave you with an unforgettable experience. If you are heading out on a holiday to Singapore and Malaysia, I recommend you to keep Little India last on your visit list as the place also serves as a major Bus Boarding and departure point for buses heading to and from Malaysia.




There are about 5 to 6 Operators plying on this route as per what was mentioned on the website called  redbus , from where I booked my Bus tickets. I did not wait for more than a minute since as soon as I was done with my shopping I could board my Bus. However, trust me my shopping experience at this place left me with much more cash on hand than what I had expected. There were several 24 hour shopping centres like Mustafa Centre, which is famous for selling products that are priced quite lower compared to the markets outside. The range of shopping products here is as diverse as the people communities. Clothes, fresh food, souvenirs and electronics are what you will find at dirt-cheap rates over here.




There were quite a few operators plying on the route between the two cities. Some of the most popular ones being Trans Royal Singapore, Starmart Express, Konsortium, Interline Express and Trans Nasional. I booked my bus tickets through Trans Nasional which had about 5 buses plying throughout the day starting from 10:00 am in the morning till 6:00 pm in the evening. I booked an afternoon bus and the journey took me about 9 hours – thanks to the notorious traffic of Singapore. The tickets cost me about SGD40 but there were tickets that went up as high as SGD60 and it depends on the class of Bus you book. Starmart was the only luxury Bus Operator lying on this route and had buses plying at 3 different times. The prices were a little on the higher side but the Operator clearly justified this with the modern amenities that it had to offer on its buses. Konsortium had only 1 bus plying throughout the entire day which was at 10:00 pm in the night. I would recommend you to book this bus on your visit as it takes only 6 hours to complete its journey, as the roads are free of any traffic during this time. The tickets prices are also quite reasonable at this time of the night.





Taiping is considered to be the second biggest town in Malaysia after Ipoh. The name has been derived from two Chinese characters and the place is quite famous as many deposits were found here. This is also considered to be one of the most tourist friendly destinations in Singapore.
