    • Visit Sikkim in February Last Week of February

      Gangtok Yesterday

      Hello Folks, I m planning to visit Sikkim in the last week of February with my wife. We would like to visit monasteries, possibly stay away from the crowded places. We want to sometime alone but with nature. We would like to stay with local families in homely environment. So can you recommend me places that are generally not crowded, offer home stays with local cuisines and that can have small trails in the woods or along the hills. We are planning a trip for 7 days.

    • Help me find a name to for a specific guest house

      Goa Dec 17, 2014 at 7:10 AM

      We stayed at Silver Sands, off Beach rd in Candolim. A lady using our hotel pool said she was staying at a nearby guest house, so we went to look at it. We walked from the Silver Sands pool through a alley and arrived at the rear of the guest house on Beach road. The front was opposite(ish) "The Inferno" and the rear overlooked the back of Silver Sands. I have lost the contact details, can't find it on any map but I would recognise the lady owners name or the guest house name. Any help would be appreciated as I need to book flights soon.

    • Visiting Coorg and stopping in Bangalore and Mysore for a few days each.

      Bangalore Dec 7, 2014 at 11:39 PM

      Hi!Everybody.I am travelling to Coorg in the last part of February and after having spent a week there would visit Mysore for three nights and then Bangalore two nights.Since we have never ventured that far South would be greatful if we could know the places to visit in all the three places.In Coorg we would be staying at theMahindra Resort in Medikeri.I understand it is a good place to stay.Please giveme all the finer tips of stay and eat local food.Most importantly what to do and see.
      Similarly what to do and see in both Mysore and Bangalore?Could you recommend some other places nearby.We would rather not spend time in the major cities.I am aware that in Mysore is the Krishansagar Lake and the Palace.
      I would be really greatful if we could visit another part of Coorg for a few days and not visit Bangalore,of which I am not too keen.Correct me if I am wrong.
      I look forward to hearing of some interesting places to see and do.
      Thanks!!
      Jayarep.

      Weekend in Chennai

      Chennai (Madras) Dec 3, 2014 at 2:04 AM

      Hi all,

      I'm thinking about taking advantage of the new visa rules for India and heading to Chennai for a weekend next month.

      Please can you let me know which area should I be looking at staying in? Having looked at accommodation it seems to be very wide spread.

      Also, is it best to use cabs, drivers etc or is it easy enough to use public transport to get around.

      Many thanks, Nat

      sunset beach Resort candolim

      by jackiemac Online Now Jul 27, 2010 at 3:51 PM

      Has anyone stayed at the above hotel in candolim? We know it is basic and having been to candolim before are interested to find out what this hotel is like, cleanliness, location and meals i.e breakfast. Also does anyone know if you can apply for a visa at Jain community centre Manchester or are they just agents ? ?

      Its been a nearly two years since we were last in Goa and were wondering about the beach errosion as well. Having seen photographs on the web showing huge breakers to protect the beach. Lastly, we fancy going south for a day or two, how to get there and where to stay etc, rough ideas of costs would be much appreciated.

      Thanks
