    • Trains, couple of questions

      Delhi May 5, 2015 at 7:12 AM

      I've been looking into this and as my itinerary starts to take shape for an Delhi-Agra-Varanasi trip I still can't fully understand the train system so I have a few questions.

      1. Is it absolutely necessary to book in advance, some sites say 90 days in advance which is difficult because I have yet to decide exactly when I'm going and if I do, the likelyhood is that I will be making the booking a month or less before I go. I'm also hoping to stay about a month keeping my schedule flexible so having prearranged train tickets gets in the way of that.

      2.Will I really not be able to get seats if I wait to book once I'm there? I know and read of the quota for tourists but from the posts I've read it seems like such a lottery.

       

      3. Trains! There are so many of them it's confusing. How do I choose the best one, are they all the same, is it down to which has the shortest travel time?

      4. I will be flying in and departing from Delhi so my plan is to take a train from Delhi to Agra and either go back to Delhi for a few days then go to Varanasi or go straight to Varanasi from Agra after spending a few days there. Any suggestions on which would be better? I read somewhere all trains from Delhi pass through Agra anyway so there is no point in going back to Delhi before going to Varanasi from Agra.

       

      One more thing about that is I'm also planning trips to Jaipur, Lucknow and Allahabad or some other places but I haven't decided yet, and what if I decide to stay longer in one place and have to change up when I'm there, will I have room to make changes once tickets are booked?

      1. How is the weather in Shillong Cherrapunji in 1st week of June? Can we travel with kids of 8 years and 4 years age? Will rain be a problem?
      2. Any good hotels for stay with kids that can serve good food (preferably rice and if possible south Indian)?
      3. Good itinerary? We plan to just visit two shillong, cherrapunji and around like water falls, gardens and lakes so that we come back to our hotel and relax without moving between multiple hotels.
