My dream is to visit Greece and Spain to explore their rich cultural heritage and the quaint towns of both countries. Both,Greece and Spain, have so much to offer culturally and historically.

I prefer Singapore Airlines and British Airways. Both are premiere airlines with great connectivity. Their impeccable in-flight hospitality and quality services make them my favourites.

In India, my best hotel experiences were with The Amarvillas and Rambagh Palace, a different world altogether.When I’m travelling abroad, I prefer to stay at the Hilton, JW Marriot or Hyatt.

I would like to visit Goa and Singapore again.
