TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Vishnu Palace Mussoorie
First I should point out that this hotel has quite a range of rooms. I stayed in one of the nicer ones for a week. The view from my room was spectacular and the quality of the room was fantastic. I might have stayed in the room forever, but it was a bit too expensive for me, especially considering that I was staying in Mussoorie for about a month.. (I was paying Rs. 1,600 per night.) At the time, though, after some rough traveling, I needed some comfort and luxury - which this place was able to provide.
The staff was excellent: friendly and service-minded. The only negative was the noisy (Indian) guests who would gather in groups in the hallways and conduct noisy conversations outside my door as if they owned the place. But that was more a characteristic of Indians and I don't suppose the hotel can really be blamed for that.
Overall I loved my time there and I would gladly stay there again in the future should my budget allow it.

Mussoorie, Wednesday, 03 April, 2013
For weeks I had been wanting to take an excursion down to the regional capital Dehra Dun. As you might recall, I passed through the town briefly on my way up to Mussoorie, but I didn’t really have the time then to explore the place. And I hadn’t been able to make ...

I have my theories about why there are so many rapes in India. Actually it’s not at all difficult to figure out: First of all, Indian society values male children over female ones. Sons are seen as a blessing; daughters as a burden. (Which they are, in fact, practically speaking, as women have to pay a dowry to get married rather than men, in contrast to how things work in Thailand, where female children are seen ...
