      Luxury hotel/resort close to restaurants/action

      Goa 18 hours ago

      We are planning a relaxing/beach getaway to Goa end April and want to stay at the Taj Holiday Village in Candolim, however this hotel looks far from everything.
      Ideally I would like to walk from my hotel to restaurants and shops/markets and not take a taxi every time. Is there any other luxury resorts that is closer to the action? Not the hippies please.

    • How to do Goa

      Goa Jan 31, 2016 at 7:58 AM

      I am going to be in Covalossim for a conference in March.
      I would like to extend my stay in Goa for a week or so - maybe spend 4 days in the South on a quiet beach with some restaurant choices before heading up North for a bit of life. I'm not into the party scene, but wouldn;t mind some live music and a chilled out feel.

      Any suggestions?

      India Visa Payment Failure

      India Jan 6, 2016 at 5:49 PM

      Please Help !!!

      I am a bit frustrated now. After completing the application online, the payment portal indicated that the online payment company is not available and to try again some time. After I read that many people have successfully processed their payments today, I went in and tried to pay. I have been trying to pay my Indian visa all day but everytime I hit YES and PAY NOW, it says:

      Payment Failed:

      Your payment has not been received. You can try again through e-Tourist Visa (eTV) Payment page.Please press Exit to exit the application.

      It does not even allow me to enter my credit card information. Does anyone have any experience similar to this?

    • Immigration Exit for baby overstaying e visa by few hours

      India Jan 7, 2016 at 4:59 AM

      Our baby travelling with us (parents on OCI) will overstay his e tourist visa by 4 hours when boarding the flight
      We applied for an exit permit at the Pune FRO and were given a date 7 days ahead to collect it. On the given date our file was initially nowhere to be found and once found was not yet signed as the FRO was away on that day.
      Secondly, no one at Pune FRO seems to know the correct fee for the exit. They would be charging the £55 ( which is newborn exit visa fee). Online references seem to suggest $40 and their visa fee circular says Rs.8400 for a 6 month tourist visa for the UK.

      We have wasted enough time first to submit documents clearly mentioned as non mandatory on the application and then not have the FRO clearance on the date promised because of carelessness of the FRO office. Our flight is now 2 days away. Can the airport authorities detain us for carrying an illegal migrant baby out of the country. If we ask them to detain the baby and inform the British embassy can they still detain us even if we are fully legal and within our right to leave?
      In such a circumstance won't they just have to let the baby go with the parents?

      Flying to Port Blair

      by cherrybug Online Now Sep 17, 2007 at 8:59 AM


      We are thinking about flying from Chennai to Port Blair for about 5 days in january. It seems Spicejet offer the cheapest flights though these are still quite expensive.

      Are there any cheaper airlines that fly from southern India to Port Blair?
      Can we book flights through their website here in the UK?
      Would it be cheaper to wait until we are in India to book?
      What is the availability of these flights - ie. is it better to book early?

      Many thanks,

      chennai to port blair to southern thailand.. via boat/ship

      by rising_sun Online Now Aug 3, 2005 at 10:19 AM

      is this possible? I am finding possible information on ships leaving from chennai about once a week, but nothing about getting to thailand. We have the time to spare and don't want to fly more than we need to. Plus we are on a fairly short budget.
      By the way, has the situation on the islands improved enough that tourists are ok to come? (All of these questions apply to our trip that will begin in may 2006)
      if anyone has any advice, it would be welcome!
