About - the Indian online travel community website that revolutionizes how people find and share travel information. is India's first online travel community. This community is all about travel in India and the best place for travel enthusiasts to find and share experiences and travel advice on India. It enables travelers to capture and share travelogues, photos, features and recommendations with friends, family and members.

At, we believe that travel information is about more than price and star ratings - it is about the whole experience. You want to know what it is really like there. You want information on the people, the culture, how to get around, how to avoid problems, as well as suggestions for itineraries, accommodations, dining and things to do.

We also believe that the best way to find out about a place is from someone with similar tastes who has already been there.

So in late 2006, inspired by the growing wanderlust of the Indian traveler and his desire to share (and read about others') travel experiences, was launched - an exciting new online community that lets people like you to find and share detailed advice and experiences on places in India (or around the world). And we make it easy for you to connect to other travelers who are just as passionate about travel as you. lets travellers create personal travel blogs, or travel journals, with detailed route maps, embedded photos and recommendations, and allows them to easily share these with friends, family and others. Travel Blogs, written by real travellers, are a proven source of trusted information for people researching and planning a trip. Travel shoppers can then easily find this travel information, including advice on hotels and restaurants, from like-minded travellers.

Prominently featured on are Hotel Reviews written by real travellers, first person Travelogues, Travel Photos, and Videos, member contributed Destination Features and reviews written by travellers plus travel related member Queries & Answers.
