    • Varkala and rain in October. Or should I choose somewhere else??????

      India Jul 1, 2015 at 12:07 PM

      I am going on a business trip to Bangalore October 10th till October 15th. My plan is to top the trip with four days on the beach. I was in Varkala 12 years ago and would like to go back there, but I notice the monsoon season is still going on in October and it usually rains 17 days during the month. Of course I do not want to experience bad weather during my four days.

      Shall I dare to book Varkala, or should I opt for somewhere else? Northern Kerala or southern Goa?

      The flight from Bangalore should not be more than an hour, and the beach should not be more than one hour’s drive from the airport. After last year’s trip to Bangalore I went to Goa but this year I would like to try a different part of the country. In Goa I stayed in Calangute, which I found a bit crowded for my taste, but I really enjoyed the beaches of Sinquerim and Aswem nearby. The place I stay in should not be totally isolated as I travel alone, a couple of restaurants and bars to choose from is a must. I am also more into white sand than golden sand.

      Or should I consider the Lakadives???? It looks beautiful there and I loved being in the Seychelles a coulpe of years ago!

      Nag Panchami in Jodhpur or Jaipur

      by nihaoma_99 Online Now Jan 18, 2014 at 10:07 AM

      Is Nag Panchami an important festival in Jodhpur? I will be on 30-31 July in Jaipur for the Teej festival. I wonder if it is worth going quickly to Jodhpur the next day because of Nag Panchami or better just take another day in Jaipur, where they say is some Nag Panchami celebration near the Hardevja Temple.

      What should I do hurry to Jodhpur because it is worth to see Nag Panchamithere. Or relax in Jaipur if the is some interesting Nag Panchami there ??? Please advice.; thanks

      single traveller to Jodhpur May 2014

      by soundchaseruk Online Now Oct 6, 2013 at 8:23 AM

      I have never travelled to india and want to come in May next year. I will be alone flying i guess to Delhi then onto Jodhpur. What problems am i likely to encounter with regarding to beggers and thieves. Is it a problem '? I have twice been to China alone with no problems but for some reason i feel there more dangers in India.

      I would only be there for two weeks. I would prefer to stay in hostels but think being in a clean hotel which is inexpensive would also be good. I just want a comfortable sleep, good clean room and safe food.

      Any suggestions would be really helpful

      Holi Festival 2013 in Jodhpur

      by kevinborg Online Now Mar 8, 2013 at 6:19 AM

      Hey guys,

      I will be in India next week and I plan to be in Jodhpur to spend the Holi Festival there. Someone told me that Jodhpur's Holi Festival celebrations are really great and authentic! But I'd like to hear some recommendations from locals and also travellers who had the opportunity to spend the Holi Festival in Jodhpur in the past.

      So, can someone please tell me where is the best place to go to in Jodhpur on the day of the Holi? Are there any organised events on the day? And considering we are non-Indians do you think safety is an issue? Finally, is Holi in Jodhpur celebrated only on the 27th March? or else there'll be celebrations also on the 26thMarch and maybe the day after, like it's done in Jaipur?

      Thanks for any help.

      Jodhpur to Jaisalmer - An Alternative to Train Transport

      by kevinborg Online Now Feb 25, 2013 at 5:00 AM

      Hi all !

      I need to travel between Jodhpur to Jaisalmer next month (on a Friday) but I want an alternative means of transport to trains. The reason being, basically, that we will arrive in Jodhpur Airport at 2 pm in the afternoon and the next available train from Jodhpur to Jaisalmer is only at 11.45pm, which is almost 10 hours later!!! And thus, it means that with train transport we only arrive in Jaisalmer the following day at around 6am!! So we would like to know of an alternative means of transport so that we travel to and actually arrive in Jaisalmer much earlier than the train option.

      So can somebody please tell me, what are the best options that I have? Are there any good bus/coach or taxi services which frequently travel from Jodhpur to Jaiselmar? If yes I appreciate, if you can indicate the travel times (maybe you can provide a link) the duration of travel needed between these two cities, the price for this trip and from which area in Jodhpur we must go to, to take this means of transport? And finally, is there a possibility to take any of these services, from Jodhpur airport straight to Jaiselmar City?

      Thanks a lot and I look forward for your replies, and looking also forward for my first time experience to visit incredible India!

      Regards, Kevin Malta, Europe

      Anyone interested in going to Nagaur

      by suziezed Online Now Nov 21, 2006 at 12:17 AM

      I'd like to go to Nagaur but am somewhat daunted by Lonely Planet's indication of 3 hours (each way) on the local bus. I did this from Udaipur to Ranakpur and it was okay but it really would be preferable to do it in a car and not always be worrying about getting back etc. The problem is that as I am by myself this is bound to be expensive so I am wondering if anyone (or up to 3 or 4 people) would like to join me. I am in Jodhpur until Sunday morning (Nov. 26th) so either email or stop by the Haveli Guest House (near the step well) - room 5.

      My dillema is, Will it be worth it to go out of my way and stay a night at jodhpur, and then just stay a night in udaipur, or should I just skip jodhpur and spend 2 nights in udaipur.

      How difficult is it to travel between each city. I am interested in visitng jodhpur, but I am concerned that I will miss out one of my 10 days spending 6 hours on the road.
