How do you feel being at the border of two countries?
Not just flying into a country but being able to see the other side, the other country and its land from this side?
Most times travel to foreign involves flying into that country. But after so many years of travelling I find it quite boring. Of course, it is still the most preferred way as it saves time and may be other hassles that I’ve talked about earlier.
For me it is always intriguing when I cross borders overland where I can …
Warning – A long post.
Thailand, the favourite destination for most of us, exempts requirement of short term tourist visa for most western countries citizens and for several Asian countries as long as they stay only for 30 days.
On the other end of the scale there are a whole lot of people from countries who have to compulsorily get a visa prior to entering Thailand.
In the middle are some countries like India where generally you are expected to get a visa up front but on certain conditions you may …
Baarle, Belgium, Netherlands »
In my last post, I spoke about Baarle and how number 2 is so important for it.
What if I tell you that boundaries between the two countries DO NOT divide the town with a straight line and instead zigzagged all through the town?? Through the roads, through pavements, and ….
Zigzagged white boundaries.
The result is that when you stroll around Baarle, you constantly pass in and out of the two nations ! And

Okay, let’s try.
It is a Dutch town in the Netherlands. But it is …
It all started when I received a message from Lakshmi; it would be a gross understatement if I call her just a traveller.
She asked me if I would be interested in visiting Gangtok to be a part of the select group of travel bloggers, writers and photographers; on an invite by Club Mahindra.
My flight to Delhi was at around 7 in the morning and from there I was to catch a flight to Bagdogra. When I boarded the plane I was wondering how the trip would turn out to be. …
Alor Setar, Hat Yai, Malaysia, Thailand »
Never take a bus to Alor Setar to cross border from Thailand… unless you are pretty confident of things.
You do not get a satisfactory or complete answer however hard you try to find on net, in forums, twitter and everywhere else about taking a bus from Hat Yai to Alor Setar, a comparatively less popular place in northern Malaysia. Try in Hat Yai. Go to bus station (also known as Bor Kor So)….
No direct bus for Alor Setar. Even though the place is big enough to have an airport, a …

From Kuala Lumpur I took Langkawi express, a Malaysian train, to enter into Thailand. For your info, Langkawi also happens to be a beautiful place in north west Malaysia. This inter-country train starts in south from Singapore, crosses Malaysia from south to north and enters Thailand.
Initially I was very apprehensive of taking this train, mainly because I never knew what’d happen at …
