    • Trains, couple of questions

      Delhi Yesterday

      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?

      Laugh if you must - What is appropriate foot wear for traveling in Dehli and Rajasthan?

      by Herkbert Online Now Sep 24, 2014 at 1:51 PM

      Hi.. We will be touring in New Dehli and the Rajasthan area for almost two weeks in October. I know that visiting temples and other holy places requires the removal of shoes, so my normal walking shoes don't seem like a good choice. Are they ok or should I buy sandals for walking around? Do travelers where socks or go barefoot in the temples?

      Thanks.. Tom

    • Arriving late in Delhi

      by MaxRK Online Now May 19, 2014 at 10:12 PM

      Hi All,

      I am looking at booking my flight to Delhi however it seems that I'm only limited to flights that will see me land at 23:55. I am a solo female traveller - is it not a good idea to land at this time?
      I could look at a layover in another country so my landing time in Delhi changes, but obviously this would end up costing more.

      One other question - is it not advisable to arrive in Delhi on a Saturday/Sunday? Are many things open on the weekend in Delhi?

      Thank-you very much in advance!

      Hi,

      We are 4 friends on their mid-thirties who are planning to do the Golden triangle (Delhi, Agra and Jaipur).

      We are looking for a very good company organising this tour, including the transport among the cities so that to show us
      the nice spots on the way.

      We are not looking for a private tour, but to be with other people in the group (preferably people of our age, or at least not families).

      We heard Trinetra is good but they don't reply to our e-mails.

      Is there any company you could recommend us?

      Many thanks for the advice.
