      Bali 5 hours ago

      Hi!

      Myself and a couple of friends are headed to Bali in two weeks. We would love to go to Mount Batur as well as the tegalalang rice plantations but we are staying in seminyak and have heard that it is quite far away. Does anyone have a driver to recommend and what are the rates usually?

      Same goes for Tanah Lot. We are planning to go there one evening and have been told it is better to hire a driver.

      Please advise! Thank you!

    • Moulid Abu El-Haggag

      Luxor 23 hours ago

      I'll be in Luxor the first week in June (hot!) and came across some information about the Moulid of Abu El-Haggag. I understand that it's a huge celebration and, if I'm counting back from Ramadan correctly, it should occur about June 4. Does anyone know if that's correct? And is it something that I want to reconfigure my travel plans to Dendera and Abydos to see? Thanks

    • Trains, couple of questions

      Delhi 6 hours ago

      I've been looking into this and as my itinerary starts to take shape for an Delhi-Agra-Varanasi trip I still can't fully understand the train system so I have a few questions.

      1. Is it absolutely necessary to book in advance, some sites say 90 days in advance which is difficult because I have yet to decide exactly when I'm going and if I do, the likelyhood is that I will be making the booking a month or less before I go. I'm also hoping to stay about a month keeping my schedule flexible so having prearranged train tickets gets in the way of that.

      2.Will I really not be able to get seats if I wait to book once I'm there? I know and read of the quota for tourists but from the posts I've read it seems like such a lottery.

       

      3. Trains! There are so many of them it's confusing. How do I choose the best one, are they all the same, is it down to which has the shortest travel time?

      4. I will be flying in and departing from Delhi so my plan is to take a train from Delhi to Agra and either go back to Delhi for a few days then go to Varanasi or go straight to Varanasi from Agra after spending a few days there. Any suggestions on which would be better? I read somewhere all trains from Delhi pass through Agra anyway so there is no point in going back to Delhi before going to Varanasi from Agra.

       

      One more thing about that is I'm also planning trips to Jaipur, Lucknow and Allahabad or some other places but I haven't decided yet, and what if I decide to stay longer in one place and have to change up when I'm there, will I have room to make changes once tickets are booked?

      Diving permission in Croatia

      Croatia 6 hours ago

      I am surfing the Web and collect any info that a tourist scuba diver may need for its trip (me, for example). And I can't be sure as for the diving permission in Croatia. Some say that it is needed anyway and it costs 100 kunas (local currency, about 12 euro), but some say that the permission is not necessary in case you dive with a dive center. But If you deside to dive with your buddy and without dive centers' services, you will have to pay 330 euros per year!

      Please advice, If you dove not long ago in Croatia and know the answer.

      Saint Petersburg

      Saint Petersburg 6 hours ago

      Is this workable:

      25 May Mon Day 03 : Moscow Vnukovo VKO - St. Petersburg Pulkovo LED (Taxi)–Aeroflot Rossiya SU6124 flight 09.30 – 11.00. St. Petersburg – Have driver & guide pick up directly from airport to Pushkin (1 Hr.) for Catherine Palace as per appointment time (closed on Tuesday & last Monday except for Summer, 670R, 30 min.). See the spacious airy ballroom, the “Grand Hall” or the “Hall of Lights”, with a spectacular painted ceiling, and comprises numerous distinctively decorated smaller rooms, including the reproduced Amber Room. Visiting the Imperial park, after the palace, and possibly the cute little town of Pushkin.

      Drive along the ‘Great Perspective’ famous today as Nevsky Prospect, lined with marble palaces of Russian royalty and aristocracy. Visit St. Issac’s Cathedral - the main church of the Russian Empire. Later, visit to The Peter and Paul Fortress - the original citadel of St. Petersburg, Russia, founded by Peter the Great in 1703 and built to Domenico Trezzini’s designs from 1706-1740.

      Evening at Leisure or view ‘opening of the bridges’ along Neva River cruise. OR C-189 Submarine Museum. Renaissance St. Petersburg Baltic Hotel. Pochtamtskaya Str 4 St. Petersburg - 190 000, RU. +78123804000

      26 May Tue Day 04 : St. Petersburg – Visit the Hermitage Museum (closed on Monday, 600R o18), a museum of art and culture in St. Petersburg. It is the largest and oldest museums in the world with collections comprising of nearly three million items including the largest collection of paintings in the world.

      Proceed to Peterhof (closed on Monday, 700R o18, 45 min). It is famous for its series of palaces and gardens known as the Peterhof Palace, laid out on the orders of the Russian Tsar, Peter the Great and sometimes called the ‘Russian Versailles’. Later, visit the Grand Palace entering by the ornate Ceremonial Staircase and see the Ballroom, Throne Room, the Western Chinese Study, the Drawing Room, the Imperial Suite, the Oak Study Room and the Crown Room. Visit Faberge museum.

      From there, visit Church on Spilled Blood's interior, and maybe a canal cruise to see more of the city that is harder to see on foot. We could visit the Faberge Museum and palace, or visit Peter and Paul Fortress/Cathedral because they are open later.

      Tonight, we discover traditional Russian dance and music during an elegant reception at the Russian Folklore show.

      How do we fiat all this in??

      We have to go to Pushkin directly from the airport, to be able to see. How long will that take? Can we aim for the 1 pm slot (Our flight reaches at 11 am)?

      How and where do we hire minibus/van for 9 of us (including 1person 74 year old)?

      We would need English speaking guide / Driver and van/bus on all days I think? How and where to book these at a decent rate?

      Thanks friends

    • Los Angeles to Seattle via US 101

      Hi, I am from India and will be travelling to the US in Aug/Sep time period. Basically me and a couple of friends want to go on a road trip from Los Angeles to Seattle via US 101 in 8 days time. We were thinking of hiring a Jeep or other convertible for the drive. All of us have a drivers license issued in India and have used it on east coast to rent a car without having to have a International Drivers Permit. Is this mandatory in California / Oregon / Washington to rent a car? Other than wanting to spend a day or so in San Francisco we haven't made any plans yet. Any advice on where to go or what to do and where to stay along the US 101 is welcome. Thanks in advance

    • An urge in quiet and peace. Costa Brava in October

      Spain 11 hours ago

      Hello

      I and my family (mom, dad and my sister) are planning a trip to Costa Brava, Spain in early October 2015. We were thinking about renting a car and driving along the coast from Barcelona up to the French border, and back via Girona.

      I heard that there are a lot of car rental services so we are lost and don't know which one to pick. Has anyone rented a car in this area, please advise which company is good?

      When we drive along the coast, we prefer to stay in smaller towns as we are fond of nature and quiet destinations. For example we have selected such places as Roses, L'Escala and Blanes. But it's not yet decided, so we're open to suggestions of quiet places with beautiful nature and views (my dad's a landscape photographer).

      We'd also like to scuba dive one or two times (I and my family have no prior scuba diving experience, but I am visiting Croatia in September with my friends and I expect to dive there). I figure that the water and air temperature in early October are still fine to sunbathe and dive?

      Thank you all in advance for your suggestions and replies.

    • Krk or Istria - which one to choose?

      Croatia 12 hours ago

      Hello everyone

      We are 3 girls going to Croatia this September for 8 nights and trying to make our choice between Istria or Krk island.

      The main criteria for us are:

      - safety (which region is better in regards of safety)
      - interesting historical places (where there are more historical places to discover)
      - nice beaches (are there any sandy beaches in Croatia)
      - campsites (are there good rated campings with wifi, electricity, shower, toilets, hot water)
      - and possibility to experience scuba diving (are there any good places to dive, is it possible to dive without prior experience, is it possible to dive in Croatia in September)

      During this time we want to see and experience as much as possible as this is our first trip together in many years and we want it to be very interesting.

      Transportation in the region is also important. How easy it is to get to interesting places, are there shops, supermarkets, dive centers, etc?

      Thanks everybody in advance.
