      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?

      Volvo Bus from Delhi to Dehradun?

      by rimzim Online Now Jan 29, 2007 at 7:20 PM

      I hear that Uttaranchal Road Transport now runs AC Volvo buses between Delhi and Dehradun. Apparently, there is an overnight bus that leaves Delhi at 10:30pm and arrives the following morning in Dehradun.

      It sounds like a good option but I'm not able to find out how to book a seat on this Volvo bus. Since I'm not in Delhi, I want to make sure the seat is booked before I land up at the bus stop.

      Anyone know how to book a seat on these Volvo buses?
      Any way to book it online?
      Any travel agents who'll do this long distance?

      Guest House / PG Accommodation for a 60-day Stay

      by rimzim Online Now Jan 29, 2007 at 7:14 PM

      We're looking to spend 60 days in Dehradun/Mussoorie in August-Septemeber 2007. What we'd like is a clean, inexpensive, 1-bedroom setup (preferrably with a kitchen) that can sleep up to 3 adults. Western toilet is a must have. Internet access will be a huge plus.

      Does any one know of any guest houses or private homes that offer short-term rental accommodation?

      Dehradun and Mussoorie would be our top two choices but we're willing to consider any area that is less than 1.5 hrs driving time from Mussoorie.

      by lachydragon Online Now Nov 13, 2003 at 3:47 PM

      Hi All, Thanks to all the posters who are replying to my obscure questions! I (unfortunately) have another one though... I will be in India for two months and will be away from my competitive Dragonboat paddling team in Sydney. I am keen to keep fit and active in my time away and was curious as to what are popular active pastimes for people in Northern India (particularly the mountainous areas of Dehradun and Rishikesh) I will be here in Winter so a favourite pastime of mine - trekking - is out. But what are other options available in these areas, for instance do people partake in any paddle sports through organised clubs etc, and is jogging common or even feasible in these areas? Had I posted this on Lonely Planet I fear I would have 20 replies with snide, sarcastic comments. I appreciate VT users genuine responses to questions poeple post!! Thanks again for your help, Take Care, Lachy
