      I'm planning for honeymoon in the mid of June.
      My budget from 50 thousand - 70 thousand all inclusive(The lesser the better).

      I have few concerns as below.

      Which is nice location with cool climate around this time

      2. Honeymoon Package: Which option should I choose. Booking hotel by my own or through travel agency
      booking through travel agency there are two options . 1. they arrange honeymoon for couples together(group honeymoon). or provide individual honey package.

We need someone who could go to him and talk, sb to send the money..we need sb to help us. Please ...Magda and Pawel

    • How long stay?

      by scott18 Online Now Jan 5, 2006 at 11:43 AM

      We're visiting Goa for 2 weeks soon and would love to visit Hampi by train.
      The train schedule is such that we can stay for either 1 day or 3 days at Hampi.
      It seems a long way to go for only 1 day, but is there enough to warrant 3 days stay? (bearing in mind that the train journeys take about 9 hours, so we would give up almost 5 days in Goa)

      Views will be most welcome!
