    • 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

      Volvo Bus from Delhi to Dehradun?

      by rimzim Online Now Jan 29, 2007 at 7:20 PM

      I hear that Uttaranchal Road Transport now runs AC Volvo buses between Delhi and Dehradun. Apparently, there is an overnight bus that leaves Delhi at 10:30pm and arrives the following morning in Dehradun.

      It sounds like a good option but I'm not able to find out how to book a seat on this Volvo bus. Since I'm not in Delhi, I want to make sure the seat is booked before I land up at the bus stop.

      Anyone know how to book a seat on these Volvo buses?
      Any way to book it online?
      Any travel agents who'll do this long distance?

      Guest House / PG Accommodation for a 60-day Stay

      by rimzim Online Now Jan 29, 2007 at 7:14 PM

      We're looking to spend 60 days in Dehradun/Mussoorie in August-Septemeber 2007. What we'd like is a clean, inexpensive, 1-bedroom setup (preferrably with a kitchen) that can sleep up to 3 adults. Western toilet is a must have. Internet access will be a huge plus.

      Does any one know of any guest houses or private homes that offer short-term rental accommodation?

      Dehradun and Mussoorie would be our top two choices but we're willing to consider any area that is less than 1.5 hrs driving time from Mussoorie.

      by lachydragon Online Now Nov 13, 2003 at 3:47 PM

      Hi All, Thanks to all the posters who are replying to my obscure questions! I (unfortunately) have another one though... I will be in India for two months and will be away from my competitive Dragonboat paddling team in Sydney. I am keen to keep fit and active in my time away and was curious as to what are popular active pastimes for people in Northern India (particularly the mountainous areas of Dehradun and Rishikesh) I will be here in Winter so a favourite pastime of mine - trekking - is out. But what are other options available in these areas, for instance do people partake in any paddle sports through organised clubs etc, and is jogging common or even feasible in these areas? Had I posted this on Lonely Planet I fear I would have 20 replies with snide, sarcastic comments. I appreciate VT users genuine responses to questions poeple post!! Thanks again for your help, Take Care, Lachy
