Punjab Travel Guide

The North Indian State of Punjab is not only famous for its history, culture, gastronomy, and religious places but is also famous for its language, nightlife, and vibrant festivals. Here’s some information about Punjab relating to its language, festivals, and nightlife:

Nightlife:

Keeping aside the rural areas, the urban cities of Punjab have a lot to offer when it comes to enjoying the nightlife of the city. Cities like Mohali, Chandigarh, Ludhiana, Patiala, and Amritsar are the best places to enjoy the nightlife of Punjab. Here’s a list of some of the most popular places in these cities where one can witness the decent nightlife of Punjab:

Club Hollywood Mohali: Located in sector 82 of Mohali, Club Hollywood in one of the best places to enjoy the nightlife in the city. Opening at around 11 in the night, this club is the best place to hang out with friends, and enjoy late night parties.

Underdoggs: Situated inside Chandigarh’s largest mall (Elante), Underdoggs is  one of the most lively places to enjoy the dazzling nightlife of the city. This sports bar is a perfect place to spectate live matches while chugging down exotic drinks and relishing lip-smacking American snacks.

Pk Tunn: One of the most happening places in Ludhiana, Pk Tunn is the best place for grabbing budget friendly drinks. Its sophisticated ambience, elegant decors, mouth watering dishes, and exotic drinks make it the best place for enjoying the nightlife of Ludhiana.

Language:

The regional language of Punjab is Punjabi. It is the most widely used language for communication in Punjab. Due to a large tourist influence, people of Punjab also speak other languages like Hindi, and English. Therefore, tourists do not face any problem while communicating with the locals.

Various travel companies provide English speaking drivers as well so that traveling within the city is not a hassle for the tourists. People who are traveling by themselves can use a Punjab map which is available in different languages. A Punjab district map is also available online in almost all languages.

Festivals:

Being a culturally rich state, Punjab celebrates numerous festivals all around the year. Starting from Lohri in the month of January to various other festivals throughout the year like Hola Mohalla, Vaisakhi, Teeyan, Jor Mela, and the most important being Gurpurabs of the Sikh Gurus.

Lohri marks the harvest festival in Punjab. Hola Mohalla is a 3-day long festival celebrated majorly in Anandpur Sahib. This tradition was started by Shri Guru Gobind Singh. People celebrate this festival by displaying skills of sword fencing, archery, horse riding, and other martial arts. Teeyan is a dance festival wherein women dress up in traditional style to perform Punjabi Folk Dance. Vaisakhi is also one of the most important festivals in Punjab. It is a religiously important festival for the Sikhs as it marks the birth of Khalsa (pure way of living).

Gurpurabs are celebrated on the birth days of the respective Sikh Gurus, and also as a mark of respect for their martyrdom. Jor Mela is also celebrated to commemorate the martyrdom of sons of Shri Guru Gobind Singh.

    • Trip to North East

      Short form of the feedback: Starting July 11 thru' 17, '19 we had a memorable tour of NE India (mainly Meghalaya & a bit of Guwahati). We enjoyed every moment of it. Many thanks to Nikita from Reify/Itvaar Travels for putting together the overall package, detailed planning and for her constant support right thru' the tour. Here is a link to the our pictures from the tour: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmFj8TeG (click the 'play' button to view in slide-show mode). Long form of the feedback: It was the worst of times and yet the best of times .. In many ways. Promises and credible relationships were available only at a premium, that which invariably breakdown despite the best of intentions, when working at breakneck speed since the beginning of the year on a high-profile project, that which we were terribly behind and that which we had run out of considerations to not deliver. We were now effectively playing a test match game at T20 speed. Who knew if we would end up at 500 for 1 or would be all out below 100. If one batsman got out in the high-profile chase with time running out, then the next one in line had to pick up the gauntlet and step up his or her game. As Lord Tennyson so eloquently wrote in Charge of the Light Brigade, “Was there a man dismayed? Not though the soldier knew, Someone had blundered. Theirs was not to make reply, Theirs was not to reason why, Theirs but to do and die, Into the Valley of Death …”. It was the worst of times and yet the best of times .. To be associated with our project execution team. Such pressure invariably spills over onto the family which, though understanding, cannot quite fathom the necessity of an all-out war-room 24x7 work environment. After one especially contentious call, my wife asked me if I’m okay. Say I, “Yes, its just that I was practicing the ‘Raga Deepak’. Pretty normal under the circumstances. Logical thinking was at a premium.. But things took for a worse, family wise, when we had to cancel a much-awaited vacation to Iceland, mainly because, well you guessed it, work took precedence. But our vacation window for the year was closing. Our son, who is due to start his Master’s program this coming fall, gave us a 2 week window in July of his availability to join my wife & I on a vacation together. Also wanted to visit his grandma. Rescheduling to Iceland was off the table and we turned our sights to India. The 2 week window brought a clarity of purpose. Workwise, it was finally possible to see the light at the end of the long project tunnel, particularly after a quick dash to our co-developers on-site. That was good. Also, India was a good choice since I could quickly join up with our work team in India. A proposal for a workation (work + vacation) in India was quickly approved. We now turned our attention to picking a vacation spot in India. Not much time to figure that out. A new deadline. So, what’s new? It was the worst of times and yet the best of times .. To plan a vacation. July is monsoon time in India. We considered a few drier spots, the western & northern parts. Vacation spots in Gujarat, Himachal, Punjab were in consideration. But none seemed to gel well enough. And then an idea. Why try to avoid the monsoons at all? Why not pick a spot particularly well known for its monsoon rains: Cherrapunjee? That which has the reputation of the rainiest spot on Earth, or atleast that we hadlearnt during our school history lessons. If we could follow Darwin to the Galapagos, our first and only trek of significance into the Himalayas and the Indus Valley Civilization to Harappa, then following the monsoons into Cherrapunjee while impractical, did sounds just about right. Hey, and don’t’ forget the possibility to douse ‘Deepak Raga’ with ‘Megh Raga’. It was the worst of times and yet the best of times .. To take a monsoon vacation in Cherrapunjee. Cherrapunjee is in North East India. Organizing a vacation in India requires some level of ground support, particularly when coming from the US. Normally, we get ground support from relatives or friends who have provide contacts, or better still do the reservations & bookings on our behalf. But the North East is a different pickle altogether. None of our contacts knew much about the North East. What exactly to see in Cherrapunjee, or thereabouts? Other that its place in school history books, was it a place worth going to? A quick research on the web alleviated our initial concerns. The more we read, the more it seemed that we had stumbled on a hidden gem, just like Pokhara Nepal that we visited a couple of years back. But finding our way around there was still an issue. We normally self-organize our vacation travels. To do this requires enough lead time. In this case, we did not have that luxury. Nor, did we get enough leads from the web on how to self-organize one either. We were now down to Plan C: Contact a few travel agents that we could find on the web. The first one sent back a somewhat vague reply. After waiting in vain on them a few days, we tried the next one. Travel Triangle. Travel Triangle gave an immediate response back, forwarded our request to Nikita from Reify/Itvaar, an agency that specialized in the NE region. Nikita was a game changer. She is truly a responsive travel agent. After a short chat on WhatsApp, Nikita quickly understood our requirements and within a day put together a tour package that was close to what we might have put together ourselves. By this time word had got around that that we were going to the NE. A few close relatives were intrigued enough that they wanted to join us. An initial party of three quickly turned into a potential party of eight or nine. We settled down to a party of seven with one late joinee. Yet could we rely on an unknown agent from an unknown agency that had our contact from yet another unknown forwarding agent? What might be the chances of broken promises. Is Reify/Itvaar another fly-by-night operator? It came down to simply my judgement on how credible Nikita herself was. She was simultaneously responsive and insistent enough to raise our confidence in the agency. It was obvious enough that Reify/Itvaar wanted our business. But it was her responsiveness and sufficiently detailed plan that convinced us Reify/Itvaar was a credible enough agency. Our relatives joining us seemed overall fine with the proposal & pricing. Then after 3/4 modifications, that which Nikita was very quick to help work thru’ on, we finalized on 7day/6night proposal. We now had a day-by-day schedule, a vehicle with driver reserved and hotel bookings over a week or so. The schedule included the towns of Guwahati (in Assam), Shillong, Mawlynnong, Dawki and Cherrapungi (the last four in Meghalaya). We quickly learned about Shillong’s reputation as the Scotland of the East, Mawlynnong’s as the cleanest village in Asia (no kidding!) and Dawki’s as a town bordering Bangladesh. More hidden gems, for sure. It was the worst of times and yet the best of times .. Cherrapunjee was ON, and more. To get in meant a 40+ hour journey from Philadelphia to Doha to Delhi to Guwahati. The last leg of our outbound journey from Guwahati airport to Shillong would in a Tempo Traveler van included as part of the overall package. The Tempo Traveler and its driver, Tapeshwar would be our constants thru’ the tour. This was the first litmus test on the quality of the arrangements by Reify/Itvaar. The van was good sized 12 seater with plenty of space for our bags and in very good condition. Plenty of room for all. We would start our tour from Shillong, with Guwahati the last stop on our way back. One relative joined us at Guwahati airport. The others joined us the next day in Shillong. Given the itinerary, it was mostly a tour of Meghalaya, just a day to visit around Guwahati. Thru’ the week, Tapeshwar was both our driver and guide thru’ the tour. A soft spoken and ever smiling Assamese, knew his way around and ever ready to adjust per our needs. With a good vehicle, Tapeshwar (literally) at the front end and Nikita at the back end, we had an amazingly good support system to take us thru’ the tour. Nikita was ever available thru’ the entire tour to help us as required. We created a WhatsApp group for the tour. The WhatApp group was very useful too, particularly to share pictures with each other. Nikita, though not on the tour, was also in the group. And she was ever attentive to all messages that required her help. With Nikita & Tapeshwar, we had a memorable trip and enjoyed every moment of it. Overall hotel arrangements were very good (except the last one in Guwahati, where both the room bathroom and breakfast arrangements were sub-par). Our one regret is that we do not have a picture of either. We neglected to take one with Tapeshwar (not sure how that happened). We never met Nikita. We can only imagine what she might be like. But both will be in our thoughts, every time we reminiscence about the tour. It was the best of times .. thanks to Nikita & Tapeshwar & Meghalaya. Deepak.

    • Trip to Himachal

      Hotel in Dharamshala (Sai Taj Grand) was excellent with very polite staff. But the hotel in Dalhousie (Satyadev Grand) was horrible. The entrance and ambience was so poor that you wouldn't like to stay in the hotel. The staff was rude too and I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. The cabs AC wasn't working and hence it was too hot in Haryana and Punjab when we were traveling from Delhi towards Dharamshala. The agent (Guruji Travels) refused to accept its AC is ill functioning. The driver (Vikas Kumar) was a very polite guy. One of the best drivers that I have ever travelled with. He needs all the desired appraisals from his company. Guruji Travels needs to be o be more customer centric as they are in service industry. Should give a heed to customers complaints and should check the hotels that they are giving to their customers. Himanshu from Travel Triangle was very helpful in listening to our complaints.

    • Trip to Himachal

      hotels and their location was not good they were far away from main points so we can't go outside even for a walk after 6.our 3rd hotel Turkish cottage was changed suddenly when we arrive as per the hotel we dont have any booking here and we were asked to go to another hotel 10kms away. when we enquired the same to travel vichar agent they said we have booked another hotel for you and they don't care to even informed us luckily our driver had not gone far away he came back quickly and then we moved. so the new hotel was hotel snow retreat as per our plan it should be of 3star but it was hardly 2star rated hotel, washroom was not clean, room service was not available as the phone line was disconnected so i need to call them via mobile. after this hotel i felt cheated as it was a rs 500 per night hotel and we were too tired to call the agent for a change. Rs 1600 was charged as Himachal gvt has increased some kind of road tax on outside vehicles so i need to pay them separately. when my full package is for Himachal the car should be of himachal so that i could have saved some money atleast but we got a Punjab vehicle and i have paid the money to driver. only good thing was a good driver with a new car and the scenery of himachal, we got snowfall at various locations and we enjoyed different activities.

    • Trip to Himachal

      Hotel Services was poor. I booked hotel with Heating. But when i checked in i was forced to but heater at extra cost. The same was included in our quote. Other than this hotel was good with beautiful view. Food was good. We had booked two innova cars. One driver was very rude and he started arguing with everything us. I payed extra for night depature from Manali. However cab driver stopped the car midway at punjab and he started sleeping there. We slept for about 4 hours in car irself. Then he dropped at hotel the final and he went off. He even took the other driver who was good along with him. My final drop was at airport as per the quote. I need to thank the travel agent here who arranged the alternate cab in short span of time and he dropped us at airport. Travel agent Mr Pawan was very good. He was so kind and generous that he always supported wherever we were stuck. And finally he arranged an alternate cab for dropping us at airport.

      A nice holiday to Manali... Transportation from Delhi was a little hectic... not a big problem though... The third day sightseeing was a disappointment... On reviewing now, it feels that we could have a better itinery if we had done some pre research online.. Travel agent services were good.. Hotel Snow country was fine..Cab driver was a nice Punjabi man.. went to his house in Punjab and had a cup of tea on our return to Delhi... Gulaba was the finest part of the trip.. Looking for more trips with travel triangle...

    • Trip to Himachal

      Urvashi at North India tour and travel was a persuasive girl who literally compelled me to book my trip. The taxi with driver Sajjan Singh were the best companion of the trip. The Hotel Sunpark Resorts Chandigarh was no where near Chandigarh, rather at a bypass location of Punjab side and the staff their gave us a pathetic room which was no where near to the pictures posted on website. I got a feeling that the staff at Chandigarh probably thought the people booking rooms through travel agent have got the rooms for free. The saving face at Chandigarh was its Buffet. As far as the Manali stay at Hotel Snow Country is concerned, it was an all round Good experience. But Hotel Shimla Greens at Shimla although being a good new hotel was at such a distant place that we wasted our first day of arrival simply because we couldn't afford to travel for local sightseeing considering the steepness and far off distance of the hotel from any place worth a visit. Food / Buffet gave a clear indication of the people concerned at Shimla Greens to be miser who didnt even provide soup which we purchased from our own at a chilly night apart from ordering Non- Veg. People at North India Tour and travel probably book these hotels like one at Chandigarh and Shimla only to garner maximum margins which is pathetic to say the least. On the whole my ratings and response would be Neutral at best and would compare other options before making any booking the next time.
