Nice hotel over looking suburbs and the hills. Monkeys in the trees around the hotel. We stayed in room 103 which has a fantastic view through the large windows over the hills. Lovely to wake up too. Breakfast it a bit thrown together and can be cold. Dinner is nice. Booked a couple of trips from here which were good. Hotel is a bit noisy with thing walls and doors. doesn't mater much. Overall a good hotel.

The journey to Hatton was lovely, we passed through lots of green scenery and arrived early evening, where we were met by another ...

With the breeze in my face all the exhaustion from traveling from Dubai was gone. I was like a dog hanging its head out of car window. It was so much FUN!!!! Especially through the tunnels.
The warm breeze managed to prevent me from falling asleep for some time, ...
... own thing, you instead get every shop selling the same very specific item. So we went through a town with at least 3 car seat show rooms (that's right, car seats, not actual cars, just the seats lined up in front of large glass windows.), then there was a town where every shop sold cashew nuts in large quantities, one full of wicker baskets, another of terracotta pots and finally, and my personal favourite, a town with two stalls both selling an incredibly large ...
