I didn’t expect that it would take this long to complete this trip report. In the meantime, we have completed another road trip! But more on that later.
After relaxing at our hotel in Mysore the previous evening and enjoying a leisurely start to the day, we headed out to Mysore Palace. This was not the first time we were visiting the Palace, but it continued to amaze. Crowds were a bit lesser, due to Covid, and we were able to enjoy the wonderful sights at leisure. We also enjoyed a quiet stroll around the Palace grounds, where we spotted a camel!
After lunch at a nearby restaurant (nothing great), we headed to the next popular attraction of Mysore, its zoo. From my limited experience, this is easily one of the best zoos in the country. It was the middle of the day and a bit warm, but we still had a good time.
The last halt was one of those serendipitous ones that make unplanned travel such fun. The zoo was crowded, and the parking lot was full, so we had to park at a car park a few minutes away. This park was in an open ground, parts of which were taken over by what can be called a ‘ fun fair’. There were a variety of rides for kinds, and there was no way my kids were going to pass this opportunity by! This also meant that I got to enjoy a ferris wheel ride!
Our day (the last of the trip) ended with another good dinner at our hotel restaurant.
