Hi . I want to ask about the best and most efficient transportation from New Delhi to Red Fort and Mahatma Gandhi's residence? Can you give me some information? It would be very helpful. thanks.
I scheduled a vacation stopover in Delhi for 5 days. I'd like to find serene/clean/natural/spiritual (are all of these possible?) places to stay and visit during these days. I was thinking I could take a little plane ride to the DED
airport and then come back to DEL by train, visiting the town Rishikesh along the way. Or, I could find a tour of the mountains and wildlife of the Himalayas. Does anyone have a recommended itinerary for someone that just likes nature? I prefer cool weather so I think this is the perfect time to visit. (By the way, I travel to Bangalore occasionally for work and am hoping that the northern part of India is not as polluted!)
is it possible to get large size ladies shoes in Dehli? are they available in shops or can they be made to order, if so how long does it take and on average how much would this cost?
Thanks for any info on this

I am thinking about going to India as a solo female traveller. I would like to look into a yoga stay as I am an avid yoga lover and am wondering if anyone knows any reputable ones. Also in terms of safety for lone females - there is risk everywhere I know but am wondering if perhaps a tour is a better option then attempting to backpack?

Hi all -
I'm going to be in South Delhi (Sheraton in Saket), and am looking for a good therapeutic massage. I'm intrigued by ayurvedic massage and am leaning towards that. I'd prefer to go to a 'local' place, where Delhiites go. I'm also looking for something affordable. I'm ok if the ambience isn't amazing, what matters most is a good massage. What are good rates for a massage?

Hi, On Saturday our taxi driver was asked to take us to Cottage Industries on Jan Path. He said he knew it well. He took us to a smallish shop, 2 floors, next door to the Deutsche Bank, which had a Cottage Industries sign. Checking on Google now, I see that the real Cottage Industries is a much bigger complex, further south on Jan Path (corner of Tolstoy). Can anyone tell me more about the little shop next door to Deutsche Bank (near Connaught Circus)? Is it a regular scam? I do remember that we could not drive up Jan Path because of Metro construction work. Does this construction block access to the real Cottage Industries and give the taxi driver a valid excuse? (The taxi company is known and used by my host in Delhi - we were there on business. I want to give feedback to my host company who hired the taxi for us)

Hello fellow forummers! :)
My travel partner and I will be visiting India for the first time in November for 9 days and whilst planning, we have some questions which I would be grateful for some advice:
1. So, we will be flying via Jet Airways into Delhi. I read that New Delhi really is part of Delhi. Is this distinction important in my planning as it seems a little confusing for a newbie.
2. We do not have a fixed itinerary yet, just tentatively the golden triangle. Is that a good initiation into India or should we do something different? We are hoping to do something slightly off the beaten path, not just the usual touristy places, yet not something that may be dangerous.
3. If you would recommend the golden triangle, how many days should we stay at each city? 3 days each at Delhi, Jaipur and Agra? Should we get out of Delhi straightaway and leave it for the last part of our trip since we are flying out from Delhi or should we cover it for the start leg of our journey?
4. Do we have to book the train tickets in advance from in our home country or can it wait till we arrive India?
5. I was told that the non-aircon trains, where the locals actually hang from the outside of the train, are quite an Indian adventure to experience. What are your comments on this?
Thanks a lot!

Has anyone stayed there? or what's the area like, we have stayed in Karol barg area before and really liked it. If any one has a suggestion for cheap (upto USD80 p/night) and funky hotel let us know!
I am trying to book a train ticket on the Indian Rail website and make my trip , but it appears that I first need to sign in, but it asks for an Indian mobile number, which I do not have. Is there any way to book online? I am trying to get train tickets from New Delhi to Chandigarh.
