Singapore has been getting a lot of press lately in the travelling community: it is a bustling hub in the heart of Asia, a perfect stop-over for many, particularly those travelling to Australia/New Zealand. It has been dubbed the world’s most expensive city – but it does not have to be.

On my brief 48-hour stay in Delhi, before venturing off to the dry state of Rajasthan, I stayed at Stops Hostel, in the Daryaganj area of New Delhi, by Delhi Gate.

Having endured the madness of Delhi and Jaipur in the space of a few days, a well-deserved retreat into peaceful Pushkar, near the Thar desert in Rasjasthan, proved to be the perfect place for recuperation.
