    • Help me find a name to for a specific guest house

      Goa Dec 17, 2014 at 7:10 AM

      We stayed at Silver Sands, off Beach rd in Candolim. A lady using our hotel pool said she was staying at a nearby guest house, so we went to look at it. We walked from the Silver Sands pool through a alley and arrived at the rear of the guest house on Beach road. The front was opposite(ish) "The Inferno" and the rear overlooked the back of Silver Sands. I have lost the contact details, can't find it on any map but I would recognise the lady owners name or the guest house name. Any help would be appreciated as I need to book flights soon.

    • Visiting Coorg and stopping in Bangalore and Mysore for a few days each.

      Bangalore Dec 7, 2014 at 11:39 PM

      Hi!Everybody.I am travelling to Coorg in the last part of February and after having spent a week there would visit Mysore for three nights and then Bangalore two nights.Since we have never ventured that far South would be greatful if we could know the places to visit in all the three places.In Coorg we would be staying at theMahindra Resort in Medikeri.I understand it is a good place to stay.Please giveme all the finer tips of stay and eat local food.Most importantly what to do and see.
      Similarly what to do and see in both Mysore and Bangalore?Could you recommend some other places nearby.We would rather not spend time in the major cities.I am aware that in Mysore is the Krishansagar Lake and the Palace.
      I would be really greatful if we could visit another part of Coorg for a few days and not visit Bangalore,of which I am not too keen.Correct me if I am wrong.
      I look forward to hearing of some interesting places to see and do.
      Thanks!!
      Jayarep.

      Hi all,

      I'm thinking about taking advantage of the new visa rules for India and heading to Chennai for a weekend next month.

      Please can you let me know which area should I be looking at staying in? Having looked at accommodation it seems to be very wide spread.

      Also, is it best to use cabs, drivers etc or is it easy enough to use public transport to get around.

      by mistryapurva Online Now Oct 25, 2013 at 9:38 PM

      Day 1:

      Reach Pondicherry early in the morning. Check-in at the hotel and relax.

      Try and get access to Matri Mandir for the next day.

      Visit Auro beach (as we would be staying near auroville only) and spend rest of the day leisurely.

      Day 2:

      Depending upon the success on Day 1, visit Matri Mandir in the morning.

      Post lunch, go to Paradise beach and spend time till evening.

      In the evening, drive through french colony (white town) and surrounding attractions and eat at a nearby place in the town.

      Return back to the hotel post dinner.

      Day 3:

      Start late in the morning, spend some time at the seaside promenade.

      Spend the afternoon in some shopping and some road side eating.

      Return back to the hotel in the evening.

      Post dinner, departure from Pondicherry.

      Time period: 1st Nov - 3rd Nov

      First time in Pondicherry, visiting with MY WIFE.

      How does this look, considering we have a more relaxed holiday in mind, without much of adventure? Am I missing something out here?
