Dashy is the owner of the D Gallery in Bangkok Thailand, which represents modern artists from Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. She recently travelled to India with her family and sent us some photos and answered questions about her visit.

1) You just got back from India. Where in India did you travel? We went to New Delhi, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Kumbalgarh, Udaipur, Jaipur, Ranthambore, and Agra in Rajasthan

2) What was the highlight of your trip?

Seeing a tiger in the wild at Ranthambore.

3) What was your favourite hotel you stayed at on your trip?

This is a difficult question because all of the hotels we stayed in were very nice but if I have to choose one, It would be Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodphur.

4) Favourite meal while in India?

The local Thale which was a mix of local dishes, both vegetables and meat.

5) Top 3 places you would recommend?

  1. Jaisalmer: There is something magical about this place, with not too many tourists, and it’s in the heart of the Thar desert and the Serai Hotel had the best services.
  2. Jodpur: For the rich and colorful Indian life.
  3. Udaiphur: For it’s romantic feel, it’s a city built around a shimmering, clear blue lake.
