Day-1: It was a beautiful morning in the capital city of the state Chhattisgarh, tired because of late night outing at TeliBandha Talab also known as Marine Drive of Raipur City. It's also a place where you can feel proud because India’s tallest TriColour at 82 meters is here. After taking healthy breakfast, i checked out from the Hotel Johar Chhattisgarh and getting a taxi. I was accompanied by my blogger friend, well wisher Mr Ravi Sharma of www.kukikol.com, and for the entire trip, Chhattisgarh Tourism Board assigned Mr Dinesh Jangde as our Tour Guide and Pushu Ji as Driver.

Though it's a small city making its way towards commercialisation, Nagpur is a delight to discover. It also offers all its visitors a delicious variety of oranges. More importantly, Nagpur is the gateway to many national parks and reserves including Pench National Park and Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve. Among places to see in Nagpur, Shree Ganesh Mandir Tekdi, Deeksha Bhoomi and Nagpur Ramtek temple are great options to include in your itinerary. The high quality mandarin oranges grown here are souvenirs to carry back home in case you are here for a day. Though, it's best not to expect too much from the city as a tourist since you might be disappointed.
Raipur - BilaspurTo reach Bilaspur, I took a flight to Raipur - the nearest airport. I waited at the airportarrivals as one by one my girl gang members arrived at the airport from different Indian cities. Raipur airport arrival section was clean and well organized. The food options here are very limited but you will find many options for shopping. The one that caught my eye was a government shop - Chhattisgarh herbal products.
