      India Visit - where to go in December?

      India Nov 27, 2016 at 3:11 AM

      Hi,

      Hopefully I will reach Kolkata airport on 16th Dec, 2016 with my family (my 2 kids and wife). One of my kid is 11 years and other is 7 years.

      We have a holiday 10 - 12 days. My wife likes to visit Taj Mahal, Agra.

      After that we like to visit naturally beautiful places and want to spend few days there; such as - hill areas or sea shores.
      In India, my plan is to travel long distant places by train.

      On my way back, we would like to stay in Kolkata 1 / 2 days. We have tried to make a plan but cannot do that ourselves.

      It would be great help if we get hints how to make our trip worth and enjoyable in India.

      Thanks,

      Shariful Alam

      Hi, is there toilet facility inside Coimbatore International Airport? Is it easy to find public toilet in Coimbatore? Is there toilet at GeeDee Car Museum? I have been informed there is no lounge for passengers to rest in the airport during a layover of 5 to 6 hours. Passengers can only enter with valid ticket and sit on chair. Are the chairs adequate? Is it advisable to book a hotel room near the airport to rest for the duration before checking in for Spice Jet evening flight to Hyderabad? I arrive in Coimbatore from Chennai by Air Carnival at nearly 1 pm local time on 10 December.

      Has anyone stayed at the above hotel in candolim? We know it is basic and having been to candolim before are interested to find out what this hotel is like, cleanliness, location and meals i.e breakfast. Also does anyone know if you can apply for a visa at Jain community centre Manchester or are they just agents ? ?

      Its been a nearly two years since we were last in Goa and were wondering about the beach errosion as well. Having seen photographs on the web showing huge breakers to protect the beach. Lastly, we fancy going south for a day or two, how to get there and where to stay etc, rough ideas of costs would be much appreciated.
