The glistening Ganges is a charmer, the chants of Hindu prayers touch the soul, the scenic backdrop refreshes the senses and the adrenaline-pumping adventures wrecks the nerves the way it should. Often found as a highlight in most Uttarakhand tour packages, Rishikesh is a fusion of piousness and thrill, which is why the city has two names- Land of God, and The Adventure Capital of India. Thanks to the endless opportunities in this little city of Uttarakhand there are numerous things to do in Rishikesh, for people of all ages.

Review from a happy customer “Recently I went on a week long trip to India, and I rented a smart phone through Trabug in order to stay in contact with people in India as well as have access to apps. I was greatly impressed with Trabug! Their customer service was excellent, having a representative call me to check up on me. Their start up and closing procedures were simple. The only thing I had trouble with was the interface of the Galaxy phone, since I’m used to iPhones. I also had to figure out how to transfer photos and videos that I took. Having preinstalled apps was wonderful, especially Google maps and WhatsApp. And the price was very good! I would pay more if I bought an unlocked smart phone and a SIM card in India. I was glad that it was delivered to me and that they picked it up. I only wish that there were more drop off points at airports, which I think they are working on. Fantastic! Many thanks to Trabug for making this easy! Keep up the good work!” FrJay Kythe U.S.A.
Travelling abroad is usually an expensive affair and hence you want to make the best of the limited time you have there. To optimise vacation time you end up spending hours and hours on the internet researching about the place. You try and figure out where to eat, how much would it cost, what to see, how to get there, and so on. There is seldom room for you to be spontaneous. And if you are traveling with family it becomes even more important to make the most of your time there. You cannot be casual about your trip. Everything has to be pre-planned. What if I tell you, you don’t HAVE to travel that way. You can be as spontaneous as you want to be. You would probably not believe me. But this is exactly what we are trying to achieve for travellers like ourselves. We’ve seen that tourists waste a lot of time trying to locate good restaurants, shopping, pubs, money changers, etc. Even with copious amounts of planning, you need information about these facets, on the go. One very interesting thing that also came up during our research phase was that travellers were seldom familiar with local portals or digital properties to get the right information from, and more often than not ended up using Google for everything. Now we all know that Google is great but not perfect. My recent trip to London taught me that Google can go badly wrong in giving ratings to a restaurant. A 3.5 rating for me from Google would mean that I would enjoy a meal here. But unfortunately, I ended up spending a lot of money for really bad food. Tesco Express would have been a better bet any day. But that is the thing about internet. It is only as good as the things we ask it to do. I was not familiar with local content curators, like Yelp in the US, or Zomato in India. Hence Google was my go-to portal. After one bad experience, I started reading the reviews. The average time I ended up taking deciding where to eat went up almost to an hour. That’s a sheer waste of precious vacation time. And more often than not, I would settle for a place near to me or a short 10-minute ride away. I really could have used Trabug on that trip. If you had to spend no time planning, you would easily save about a week’s time of researching and curating stuff on your own.
