I am from Maldives.
I need assistance in planning a medical trip to Coimbatore (Ganga Hospital) for my 4 year old daughters surgery.
Actually I am very much confused on how to plan the trip, because of my previous experience. My husband, my daughter and I went to Coimbatore this year in June. We flew to Chennai and from the airport we took a taxi to Coimbed Bus station, and then we went on Bus to Coimbatore. It took almost 12 hours :O. My daughter was on my lap most of the time and i had body pain for almost 2 days because of sitting on the chair for so long.
So this time I searched internet a bit to check on the nearest place to Coimbatore that I can fly to from Maldives. I got the idea that Cochin was nearest to Coimbatore.(According to Google Map its a journey of around 3 hours by car). So, I have confirmed our air tickets to Cochin for 21st November (next Wednesday).
We would arrive at Cochin in the evening around 15:30. This time My Mother will be accompanying my husband, me n my daughter.
Now, I would like your help in choosing the most convenient and price worthy way to reach Coimbatore from Cochin by road.
Should we hire a taxi or should we go for the bus or train?
I am finding it very difficult to convince my self that trains would be a good option, because of the fact that my daughter would be with me, and I haven't even seen how the inside of a train looks like. And, i get confused with all the different types of classes and every thing.
I am just very confused because I do not want the trip to be very tiring like the one before. I need to be in good health and perfectly fit and prepared for my daughters surgery when we reach there.
I hope to get great ideas from this forum.
This Tuesday I'm arriving in Coimbatore (by bus from Cochin) and need to go by Taxi to NAVAKKARAI (I go to SARANYA AYURVEDIC HOSPITAL
NAVAKKARAI - 641 105 )
It is one of the branches of THE ARYA VAIDYA PHARMACY Ayurvedic hospital.
But when I type in NAVAKKARAI it is NOT found by Google maps.
I cannot find NAVAKKARAI on any map....does it have another name or what is NAVAKKARAI (so small village that it doesn't exist on maps)?

I and my wife ( we are 59 and 56 year old) will reach Coimbatore from Delhi by air around 1100 AM. We wish to go to Ooty, as early as possible, but on a reasonable budget (we are Indian middle class). We do not want to travel standing in buses. We need suggestions. Can I get a shared taxi at Coimbtore airport, which will take us directly to Ooty. If not, then are there shared taxis available from Coimbtore city. If yes then from which place in Coimbtore. How much these options will cost per person.
I also want advice on the quality of TTDC (Tamilnadu tourism) hotel at Ooty, where I have booked my accommodation for stay.
