    • 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.

    • Help me plan a trip to Uttar Pradesh

      State of Uttar Pradesh Jun 21, 2013 at 5:54 PM

      Hello everyone. Firstly, I again want to say thanks to everyone who helped me plan my trip to Delhi earlier this year. Now, I am planning on going on a trip of Uttar Pradesh during last week of September.

      Now, I have a week in my hands and as per my plans, I will reach Allahabad on 24th of September and have a return flight from Lucknow on the morning of 3rd October. Now, I wish to cover Allahabad, Kanpur and Lucknow in these 8 days and I want to cover these three cities completely with visits to almost all places that should be visited especially religious sites.

      From what i have researched on the net, I have seen that there isn't much to see in all the three cities that cannot be covered in 3 days each. Here are a list of places I want to visit in Allahabad and Kanpur that I want to visit:

      Kanpur: Jajmau, J.K. Temple, Jain Glass Temple, Kanpur Zoo, Kamla Retreat, Phool bagh, Nana Rao Park, Kanpur Memorial Church, Aanandeswar temple, Moti Jheel, Nawabganj Bird Sanctuary, Valmiki Ashram, Patthar ghat @ Bithoor, Kanpur Museum, Dwarkadhish Temple, Panki Hanuman Mandir, Massacre Ghat, Jama Masjid, Iskcon Temple and Gora Cemetry. Would also love to see Lav-Kush barrage and the Ganga Barrage plus I would also like to know if visitors are allowed in to IIT-Kanpur campus.

      Allahabad: Allahabad Fort, Allahabad Museum, Anand Bhavan, Khusrao Bagh, Alfred Park, Triveni Sangam, Alopi Devi Mandir, All Saints Cathedral, Sivakoti Mahadev Temple, Nag vasuki Temple, Beni Madhav temple, Hanuman Mandir, Shankar Viman mandapam, Kalyani Devi temple, Mankameswar Temple, Minto Park, Sai Dham Mandir, and Bade Hanumanji Mandir. I also want to have a peaceful calm boating session in the yamuna and would appreciate any details about how can I avail such services and where?

      Lucknow one I haven't checked yet and hence I have no ideas about what is there to see. What I really want your help is in planning a schedule that will help me in covering all or most of these places, helping me avoid points which are too far off and hence can scerw my schedule, i.e. i want to cover only parts of the city instead of going outskirts of city limits, Valmiki Ashram being the only exception.

      I am going to book a rented car locally for each day with the help of my hotel in the particular cities and hence am hoping I will not be having any problems in travelling but i am still worried about paying higher rents, so can any locals tell me the local taxi rates for Indigo cars??

      I know September is still a long way to go but since I will be travelling with my family, I am trying to plan in advance and hence avoid any last minute trouble. Thanks.

      When to visit Varanasi

      Varanasi Mar 23, 2013 at 10:19 PM

      I am looking at destinations close to Dubai which can be visited in a weekend over the summer months as I unfortunately have no more annual leave until September, and will go crazy staying in Dubai all that time.

      I have found cheap and brilliantly timed flights to Varanasi and I have a couple of questions. Assuming that the weather is going to be hot and humid, when is the best time between May - August to visit? Does the monsoon cool things down at all, or just make it impossible to travel?

      Any hotel recommendations also? None of the reviews are any good for any of the hotels, so is there a best of a bad lot? I don't have a budget and can stay 5 star if that is the best on offer.

      Thanks for your help! Natalie

      Kumbh Mela

      State of Uttar Pradesh Dec 7, 2012 at 6:52 AM

      Hello everyone!!

      I'm a Spanish girl, photographer, and photography teacher.

      I'm thinking of visiting the Kumbh Mela festival, to live this experience and take some photographs. I was wondering if you could help me to prepare my travel because I think it's going to be very difficult with all this people going there for the same time.

      For the accomodation I'm looking for something cheap, like a dormitary or something like that, I would like to stay aproximately from the 8th to 19th february, dates are not completely sure beacuse I don't have the plane tickets yet. I have been in India three times before and I'm used to do backpack travels, really cheap, so I'm a little bit worried about the prices that I'm seeing in the webs I founded for accomodation in the camps.

      In fact I contacted with some of them that gave me a cheaper price that the ones they have in their sites, but after I founded this: That is talking about fakes and problems with camps' websites... And this is worrying me a little bit.

      For the moment I'm travelling alone, thing that doesn't scare me so much in normal conditions, but I'm really concerned about safety as well, with all this people around there... I've seen videos almost scary, lol!

      As the purpose of my travel is taking photographs (and living the kumbh experience, of course, I love India and it's culture!), so the best option would be to be inside the whater, do you now if there's any possibility to rent a boat or something like that to be looking from the water to the shore? I think that from the shore, it is going to be so crowded, that it will be difficult to take photos, and I think it could be dangerous as well in the moments where most of people will be there, the risk of being pushed to the water, I mean (my camera doesn't know how to swim yet ....). I would like to find someone in the same situation to be able to share costs.

      I can do an exchanges, I can give some photographs, or I can work for you in some way, I can talk English, Spanish, Catalan, French), help you with the tourists, do photography courses (I have worked for travel magazines, for example ELLE magazine, very well reputated in Europe) or I can do whatever to try to make my travel cheaper.

      Anyone can help me? I would be very grateful!!!!

      Can anyone suggest cheap hotel/hostel and quite good accommodation. Last time, I had it at a walking distance from the Taj Mahal itself.

      I will also love to know about trains and buses from Agra to Delhi and Jaipur. Are trains better from Agra to Jaipur more specifically or buses? What's the time difference?

      How much is the cost of a ticket for Jaipur from Agra, both train and bus costs separately.

      Is there any good cheap accommodation in Jaipur? What all can be done in Jaipur? Are there some places in Rajasthan, which are doable within a few hours from Jaipur, and yet be worth visiting?

      Varanasi room or accommodation with Ganges view

      Varanasi Jan 29, 2012 at 6:50 PM

      Going to Varanasi end of March. Done some research and it appears as if Rashmi Guest House is well regarded. Upon an inquiry made they quoted me about125 per night (excl taxes). This seems expensive to me. I am looking for either a room or accommodation with meaningful views over the Ganges, even if only from the rooftop deck. Any suggestions, feedback?
