The village looks like a pack of colourful match-boxes from the top.
Books by Lily Smith
Through the crevices between these box-like houses you could see pilgrims approaching the temple through the lanes. Within an hour, the temple would turn into an action-packed arena where women would be mercilessly splashed with coloured water and the samaj gayan ballad singing would echo. Actually, commercialisation has taken over a bit. My words are drowned by euphoric cries that fill the air. The Barsana men have entered the temple and crazy water attack is underway. I put my camera on a continuous mode and don't look away from the eye-piece for the rest of the evening.
Lathmaar Holi: 2 villages and a legend behind feisty festival Mythology says this is the village where Krishna stayed for a few years with his foster father Nanda Baba and mother Yashoda. Abhishek Saha Hindustan Times. But do you know the source of his energy? During the celebrations in both Nandgaon and Barsana, senior villagers sit together at the temples and sing horis ballads on the romantic relationship between Radha and Krishna.
As men from Barsana enter the Nandgaon temple on the second day of the celebration, a crazy water-splashing session ensues. A child sprinkles colours on the gathered pilgrims at the Nandgaon temple. It is in the spirit of Radha and Krishna's relationship. How can a non-Brahmin man share such a feeling with a Brahmin woman? Women mightily hit the shields of cowering men as the Lathmaar Holi ceremony gets underway. Young Nandgaon men splash coloured water on the crowd gathered at the temple. Otherwise room is ok.

Towel has hole. So if you are fussy about cleanliness - bring your own. Only shower soap is provided. Room facilities is not consistent, certain room has coffee pack, another missing. We had dinner at the Hornbill Restaurant. Seafood fried rice is good. On the day we left, it was public holiday, we couldn't get van from the resort as all drivers are too busy to take any booking.
So it took 45 mins to get into a van. Take note to make early booking. Otherwise, it was a good trip at outback Singapore. Fresh air and nice view from room.

Bought a 2D1N stay from deal. Room: Chalet-style, simple and fuss-free. Few lizards spotted though. Lunch was a sumptuous lobster spaghetti. Mmm yummy! They had a mini beach for us to kayak and we had fun feeding the fishies. Fish spa was another fun experience.

The fishes were quite big and it took awhile to get used to the ticklish sensations. We spent a gd 1. Overall: Loved the serenity of the place, plenty of fresh air and greenery. Staff were friendly and acknowledged us with smiles each time. One thing to take note is there's no night activities here, and the restaurants near the jetty close before 8pm. It's wise to make ur way back to resort before it gets dark as there are no street lights along the roads. Otherwise, be equipped with a torchlight. This is my 2nd stay at the resort. Both Trips we enjoyed the fish spa as well as the Marine fish feeding.
Don't expect the snorkelling to be great though cos' the water isn't that clear, but we enjoyed just standing in the water feeding the fishes.. Ubin is more for people who'll enjoy cycling around the island, expect uphills ride or simply get down the bike and walk and downhill too..
Plenty of mosquitoes around the island so make sure you bring repellent and tiger balm!
The staff is not really service oriented though - they doesn't care about reviews cos' one of them told me 'it doesn't affect us at all cos' we have many return guests and also corporate guests'! I was rather shocked the staff's rudeness - like saying take it or leave it, we don't care!
How did you like the book?
Will still visit with my family cos' I'm sure the kids will enjoy playing with the marine fishes Flights Holiday Rentals Restaurants Things to do.
