Feeling tired in the entanglements of rigid schedule of work? Then it’s time to infuse some chunks of refreshment in your life by taking a perfect trip. But then, the million dollar question comes – where to go? To choose the most suitable spot that will make your holiday A+ is a daunting task. Here are some guidelines to pick up the most suitable destination to have a wonderful experience.

Where and why?

Hunt for the perfect destination depends, whether you yearn to stroll on the sands of azure beaches, witness the panoramic beauty of a hill station, take a jungle safari or dig layers of history. Don’t depend on your dream spot by just looking the fanciful picture of the place on internet. Take help of your friends, colleagues or any family members who can share real experience of the trip to that place. Some sojourners with high adrenaline rush just love the adventurous activities of paragliding, trekking on a rocky mountain, river rafting and taking swirls on skate. Choose that place which offers the desired activities.

Who are the wayfarers?

The companions of your trip affect the choice of the destination a lot. If you are going just with your spouse, go to a romantic island. If you are travelling with children ensure that the place has enough engaging fun activities for children or not? Discuss the interest and ideas with the people accompanying you. Nail down on that option which is preferred by everyone.

Pocket Friendly Budget

After forming an outline of the trip, book the cheapest flights/train tickets in advance. Cut your budget by following some economical steps like:

  • If possible, try to travel in the night so that you can arrive at the place at the crack of the dawn and save the expense of one day of lodging.
  • Get your tickets in the offer period, provided by many airlines.
  • Book your hotels near to the main attraction of the destination, saving the extra expense and time.

The Time Stretch

Make room in your busy schedules, arrange your important meetings prior or after your trip and conserve the precious days for your memorable trip. If you don’t have a long holiday then minimize your travelling time by going to some nearby place.

Sundry Tips

Enquire the best time to visit a place when the weather is pleasant and the charm of the site is in full bloom. Sometimes the place holds attractive events and festivals. Aligning your travel time to that duration will give you an opportunity to enjoy the colours and merriment of these events. If you are visiting a place in peak period, book your hotel in advance avoiding the rush at eleventh hour. While visiting an exotic land, enquire about the fees and conditions related to visa.

By following these steps choose the best destination which is worth of your valuable time and money. An organised planning minimise the unwanted hassles during the journey and you return from your trip with only sweet remembrances.

When we put our travelling shoes on, we think about all the excitement, fun and entertainment that wait at our destination. We rarely think about  any accident, illness or medical emergencies we might face. However, not everything in this world happens at our will. In those troubled times, travel insurances rescue us from any fatality coming our way. It covers for any medical charges and mishaps like baggage loss, trip cancellation and personal liabilities. In case of financial emergencies, it also compensates for any legal support.

Although many companies are launching newfound policies for Indian travellers, but not many of us are aware about how to crack the best deal. For those, we are here with a list of 5 tips to choose the best travel insurance. Read below to have a hassle-free vacation.

Know your Destination

Before you buy travel insurance, ask yourself ‘Where am I going?’ Basically, the size of your insurance cover is dependent on the destination that you have chosen. It is important to note that medical cover forms an important aspect of your travel insurance. Therefore, allocate the sum insured depending on how costly the medical services are in the country or city you are heading to.

Travelling Duration

The cost of your premium directly depends on your travelling duration. If you prefer travelling abroad, picking annual multi-trip policies is a good option for saving money. These policies have a validity of one year and normally can insure any number of foreign trips, even if each trip has duration of upto 35-45 days. Also, this prevents the hassle of buying a new policy and submitting documents every time you travel.

Decide your Activities

Is it a eat, sit, relax or a sightseeing holiday, or you are looking for some thrill at your destination? If your travelling checklist includes adventures like trekking, skiing, water sports or rafting, better look for an insurance covering such health-risky sports. As regular travel insurances won’t cover these risky-activities, you can look for a special coverage avalaible at an extra cost. If you have senior citizens on board, you can opt for policies that insures prior illness in particular conditions, and accidental casualties.

Comparisons are Must

Don’t just make a haste decision of buying a specific policy based on the amount covered and premium. Always draw comparisons between plans avalaible in the market. Compare companies and their policies based on factors like online facilities, procedure of claims, payment methods, range of hospitals covered etc.

Get Details

It’s important to know the procedures of claiming insurance. As there are so many different covers clustered together in a specific policy, like health, accident, baggage loss, trip cancellation etc., the procedures of making a claim may vary in different situations. Therefore, go through the procedures carefully and get the required documents ready. While on a trip you must save the helpline numbers of your insurer and the third-party administrator.

Bodh Gaya – Where Buddha attained Nirvana

Bodhgaya to a Buddhist is what Mecca to a Muslim. It is the very place where 2,500 ago Lord Buddha attained Nirvana (enlightenment) during his quest for knowledge. The pious place is the starting point of Buddhism, where the seed of this religion was sowed which gradually grew to a full-bloomed tree stretching its branches and twigs across all over the world. Today around six percent of world’s total population follows this religion.

The sacred place, Bodh Gaya is located in the Gaya district of Bihar. Here we are providing a quick guide of the main visiting sites of Bodh Gaya.

Mahabodhi Temple

The magnificent Mahabodhi Temple started to get concrete shape in the third century; when the great Mauryan King Ashoka visited the place and built a small shrine at the very spot where Lord Buddha attained supreme knowledge. The later history of the temple is somewhat obscured. It is said that following rulers of Ashoka developed the shrine step by step and this led to the final form of the architecture of Mahabodhi.

The structure of the temple is laid on a basement of 15m square which rises to a height of 52m in a conical structure with slender slopes and architecture. Four towers elegantly stand at the four corners of the temple to the same height. Whole structural design is poised and balanced to every angle to the observer.

The temple includes a diamond throne shrine with a canopy supported by four pillars over a stone representation of Vajrasana (the seat of enlightenment). There is a lofty image of Lord Buddha in the ‘touching the ground pose’, inside the temple. The image is believed to be 1700 years old and is faced east, where Buddha did his meditation. There are a large number of stupas of all sizes built in the courtyard in past course of time. The temple also contains ancient railings, among which Animesh Lochan Chaitya is considered most consecrated and important.

The serenity and the spirituality prevailed in the atmosphere of the temple can be felt at once you enter the place. The significance of this most revered site among Buddhists made it listed in UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The temple remains open from 5 AM to 9 PM.

The Bodhi Tree

The Bodhi Tree, situated at the back of the main temple of Bodh Gaya is the descendant of the large Bunyan Tree where Buddha meditated uninterruptedly for seven days without moving from his seat. During the second week he practised walk meditation. To mark this act, parallel to Mahabodhi temple on its North side, a jewel walk, Chakramanar was built as a low platform which is embellished with nineteen lotuses. According to the legends wherever Buddha put his feet lotus sprang up from the very spots.

There were many trees grown across the world from the seeds of the ancient and original Bodhi Tree. One of such tree is in Sri Lanka which was grown out of the sapling of Bodhi Tree carried by Sanghmitra, daughter of Ashoka in 3rd century BC. The present Bunyan tree in Bodh Gaya is grown from the sapling of this Bodhi Tree of Sri Lanka.

Other Attractions

Other tourist attractions of the place include the Sun Temple which is famous for its ‘Chhat Puja’. One of the major holy place situated nearby, is Pretshila Hill where people swarm for ‘Pind Dan’ (Hindu rites for departed souls). On the top of the hill sacred Ahilya Bai Temple is situated, which constitutes Barabar Caves. The magnificent sculptures of the caves, depicting the life of Buddha are carved out of the rocks.

After the independence of India, Bodh Gaya has been developed as an important international pilgrimage centre. Buddhists from all around the world including Sri Lanka, Japan, Thailand and Tibet have established their monasteries and temples within the proximity of the Mahabodhi temple. The site of the Nirvana attracts international Buddhist congregations from all across the world. Devout devotees can be seen walking on the streets, offering prayers in a variety of language, doing meditation and seeking insight. Emerging as a strong inspiration in the modern world, Bodh Gaya is spreading the messages of Buddha in the entire world.
