      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

      Sripuram Gold temple

      Vellore Dec 10, 2014 at 7:14 AM

      I am planning to visit Sripuram Gold temple end of this month. The walkway to reach the temple is around 2km, but will the return path covers another 2km or easy exit available. Heard special entrance fees can be paid to avoid this walk, but I think this walk is worth inside a nicely maintained premises. Anyone has any nice experiences or tips to share?

      most comfortable and price worthy way to reach COIMBATORE from COCHIN

      by ShimA29 Online Now Nov 16, 2012 at 10:00 PM

      Hello,

      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.

      Thank you.

      travelling from Coimbatore to Ooty

      by anilsaxena Online Now Mar 13, 2008 at 8:59 AM

      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.
