    • 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!

      Indian Visa for Australians

      India Jul 21, 2015 at 11:49 PM

      Hello!

      I will be traveling to India in October as a tourist, for around 1 month. I am an Australian living in England. Is it possible to just get a visa on arrival or do you have to get it in advance?

      If anyone has used a good website let me know! I have been fishing around for the past couple of weeks now but am slightly confused what site to use (uk or aus) as I think they both have different rules on visiting india?

      Any help would be great :)

      I am also planning on volunteering an animal shelters along the way, is it still ok to use a tourist visa?

      Thank you x

      Flying to Port Blair

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

      Hi,

      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!
