    • Things to do.

      Goa Jan 12, 2015 at 11:12 PM

      I'll be travelling to Goa from 24th till 26th Jan in a group of 6 people.
      Can some one suggest me the best place(s) to stay ?
      Since we're a group of backpackers we are not expecting the place to be glitzy, it should closer to places(bars/restaurants) where locals visit.
      And of course we want to try local Goan curries so please suggest some restaurants as well.
      What we are looking for is a place closest to sea and be more vibrant. I've gone through some blogs recommending Candolim but there are negative reviews as well of the place being chaotic. Any ideas ?

      Thanks !

      Chincholi forest and Chandrampalli Dam

      Hyderabad Jan 12, 2015 at 4:59 AM

      Hello Everyone. I have just joined the site and excited to be here. I stay in Hyderabad and planing to visit a forest called Chincholi and a Dam called Chandrampalli which are very near to Hyderabad. There are many people who have visited the place for trekking and I have not been able to get any more information about the place apart from the trekking point of view.

      My questions to the people who have visited the place are -

      1. Is there an accommodation available at that place. I don't want to stay in lodges in Gulbarga, the biggest town nearby.
      2. If yes, then is it good enough for a family and kids?

      Thanks in advance for your answer.

    • Sikkim travel in feb 1st week..

      Gangtok Jan 6, 2015 at 2:22 AM

      Hi,

      I am new to VT and found it quite helpful for traveller's guide. My maiden trip with my wife to N-E of india is coming up in feb 1st week. I am a lot excited and a bit anxious too about it. Based on my info here and there, I have made the following iteneirary. Can somebody please review/suggest upon it.

      31st Jan - Saturday:
      We arrive at bagdogra by 4 PM. Considering that Pelling/ Gangtok both will take atleast 5 hrs to reach, I would like to spend that day at bagdogra and relax so that next day we can start early.

      1st Feb - Sunday:
      Start very early to reach Pelling by around 11pm. We would like to spend atleast 2 days in Pelling as we hear that the place is quite beautiful and enjoy mountain views.

      2nd Feb - Monday:
      Pelling - local sightseeing, basically staying put in Pelling and not travelling much. If need be, do local sight seeing.
      We have booked Elgin Pandim as I read a lot of good reviews about the hotel.

      3rd Feb - Tuesday:
      Start to Gangtok after lunch and I think it takes about 4 hrs to reach here. Apply for permits to North sikkim and spend rest of the day in Gangtok.

      4th Feb - Wednesday, 5th Feb - Thursday, 6th Feb - Friday, 7th Feb - Saturday:
      Visit North Sikkim to cover Lachen, Lachung, Yumthang, Gurdongmaar Lake(if lucky), and any other places and reach Gangtok by 7th Feb lunch/ early evening time. Can somebody help me to reach out to a good travel company for this. What would be the cost for a couple for 3N/4D trip. I expect decent arrangements interms of hotel - room heaters, geysers , food quality.

      In the event of North Sikkim not being accessible, I would like to do Nathula, Tsongmo Lake, Ravangla, Aritar, Katao and some other places that offer variety and nice scenic experiences and hopefully snow too. My wife is expecting snow regions / snow fall of some sort :)

      8th Feb - Sunday:
      We have flight to bangalore at 12:30 in afternoon, so we start from gangtok at around 5 AM.

      I know Feb is not the ideal month to visit but I like not so crowded periods and at the same time I am not too a adventurist, So I want some words of wisdom incase some local persons insist that N.Sikkim is still doable. I have been to Ladakh 2 times and have seen 0 degree temperatures but this is first time with wife, so i want it to be a pleasant and memorable with very little risk/adventure.

    • Mobile Phone & Travel Adaptors

      India Jan 14, 2015 at 10:25 PM

      Hi.
      It's been a long wait but I'll finally be in India in 2 weeks.
      I will be staying in Delhi for a month then I will be travelling south for 2 weeks.
      I have a iPhone 4S with Vodafone here in Australia; Vodafone advised that I can use my phone in India by keeping my monthly plan plus additional costs for calls made in India. The call rates will be AUD$1 per minute for incoming and outgoing calls and 75c for texts (texts received are free). Once I get settled in Delhi, is it a cheaper option to buy a local SIM card?

      Also, I have been told that India experiences frequently power outages. Should I purchase a surge protected power adaptor for my Australian appliances? Does anyone have any recommended brands for Australia/India adaptors?

      Thank-you!!

      Hello,

      Myself and wife want to visit Andaman in May to celebrate our anniversary. We want a nice recommendation for hotel and places so below questions so far:

      1> Weather during May

      If it is raining then I would prefer a really nice hotel recommendation - 4 stars or similar
      If not then a convenient nice hotel would be good. 3 star or even lower

      2> We are flexible in dates maybe 7 days. So should teh split be 5 days port blair, 2 days Havelock as most sites and packages are offering

      3> Hotel recommendations in both places to book online

      4> Travel within the islands - is it simple to arrange once there or booking a package is important?

      Appreciate the help. We like becah side hotels if the weather is going to be sunny.

      appreciate any help.

      Some questions about getting to Andaman Island

      I guess the first and most important thing is if the permit is still available on arrival? I am a lone male Canadian traveler wanting to go there during Chinese new year. Will i be able to get eth permit on arrive at the airport there or should it be arranged ahead of time? if can get it there, is there a delay period or same day?

      I am also having trouble finding flights to this island. I Have been checking sites like http://www.flykingfisher.com/ but so far not having luck, makes em think i am getting the destination name wrong.

      I am traveling from Taiwan and probabyl going to go to Kuala Lumpur as its the cheapest flight from here that can then go to many places. Not many cheap flights direct from Taiwan this time of year. But I am assuming that there are still only direct flights form India to these islands, right?

      My maximum travel time form leaving and returning to Taiwan is Jan 21-29, so pretty short. My reason for going here is to photograph the plants and animals, especially geckos.

      Thanks a lot for any current info :)
