      fast train from Jaipur/ timing question about how much one can see in ten days

      by oslocairo Online Now Jun 5, 2016 at 10:21 PM

      I found a fast train in the morning that leaves from Delhi at 6: 35 a.m. and arrives in Jaipur at 10:30 a.m. Is there one that leaves around 6:00 in the evening that takes about the same time to return to Delhi? I'm a little confused because I thought I saw an express train, but either it only leaves in the morning or the evening one has been discontinued.


      Also, though I would like to visit the Amber fort, it appears it is not in Jaipur, but out a ways and would be a day trip in itself. I am particularly interested in the City Palace and especially the Chandra Mahal. In your opinion, is it still worth going to Jaipur without seeing the Amber Fort, bearing in mind that I will see most things in Delhi, Haridwar, and Agra?

      OR, with my 10-day actual visiting time, do I forget Jaipur altogether as there would be enough to see in Delhi, Agra and Haridwar? Is there a beautifully decorated palace in Delhi like Chandra Mahal I can see instead?

      Purchase train ticket on internet or buy once I arrive in Delhi for day trip to Haridwar?

      by oslocairo Online Now Jun 5, 2016 at 7:47 PM

      I hesitate about purchasing tickets internationally online, and have heard that there can be problems and confusion with train ticket purchases in India. Am I better to wait until I get to India and then purchase, or will seats be taken? This would be for a day-trip to Hardiwar and back during the week.

      Varanasi or Haridwar? for a day trip from Delhi?

      by oslocairo Online Now Jun 5, 2016 at 7:09 PM

      I have heard the river is cleaner and the area is more beautiful in Haridwar. Since it is just a day trip, it is also that I can get to either as quick as I can. Which is better just for traveling to?

      I have never been to India so either would be quite something for me.

      clothing and foot gear

      by oslocairo Online Now May 7, 2016 at 6:38 PM


      I will be in Delhi 9/22-10/2. I see it's hot, but the online weather prediction tables I've looked at show immense rain in September, but little in October. I'll be traveling on the cusp, so to speak. Any suggestions of what to wear? Light clothing of course, and I want to cover myself as I will be walking about most of the day. I will hydrate myself intermittently.

      This will be vacation for me so casual is fine. I will bring a small umbrella. What about a rain poncho? What about just getting wet? I come from Southern California and have hear of "rain", and even seen it in films! :-) In all seriousness, in Los Angeles, 5 minutes after it rains, the sun appears and dries it out and you would never know it had rained. I suspect India has the more lingering kind. I've never been to a really humid climate.

      What about foot wear? I want to bring comfortable walking shoes, but are they going to be too hot, and are they just not suitable for the rain? I'm not a big sandal fan since they are not normally reinforced and good for long distance walking.

      I plan not to die walking about most of the day. I hope that will be the case, if I plan well.

      Day trip from Delhi to Jaipur

      by oslocairo Online Now Apr 30, 2016 at 2:13 PM

      Hello everyone,

      Still deciding on day trips. Everyone approves of Udaipur, but suggests I stay several days. That is something I have to think about. I am sure it is worth it, but I would like to spend less time traveling between places and switching sleeping accommodations. I understand, as well that there is no night train from Udaipur to Delhi.

      With that in mind, what do you all think of A day trip to Jaipur? Can I do that in a day? It is not as far. Are their night trains back and forth for Jaipur?

      Please let me know your thoughts.

      Thanks again.

      Visit Udaipur via overnight train on a short trip to Delhi?

      by oslocairo Online Now Apr 25, 2016 at 3:21 PM

      I will have 9 maybe 9 and 1/2 sightseeing days in delhi.

      I am staying at a cheap hostel.

      There is probably enough to do in Delhi with regular side trips such as Agra, I imagine.

      However, I have heard of people making a day trip to Udaipur by taking an overnight sleeper train.

      I have never been to India so on the one hand, everything in Delhi will be special to me. On the other hand, I have heard Udaipur is manificent.

      Is it too much to do to visit Udaipur on such a short trip? What does a sleeper cost aproximately?

    • Layover in Delhi

      by Romain007z Online Now Feb 18, 2016 at 6:09 AM

      Hello folks!

      I'm going to Singapore in March. Looking at the flight possibilities I was thinking about one with a 13hour layover in Delhi (DEL Airport).

      The flight would arrive at 10AM and leave at 11PM, on a Saturday (March the 19th)

      I was hoping this would leave me enough time for a quick look at the Taj Mahal but it doesn't seem to be possible. Therefore I'd like to know if I'd have enough time to get into the city and have a look at some touristic spots.

      Also, I'm French so I'd need to get a transit visa and go through the customs, which can be time consuming.

      Looking forward to having your thoughts, Romain

      Girl Guides in Northern India

      by jenmac0110 Online Now Feb 14, 2016 at 4:25 AM

      Hello all,

      Later this year I am planning a trip to Northern India, taking in Delhi, Agra and Varanasi as well as visiting a charitable project in Dharamsala. Here in the UK I run a Brownie unit, the equivalent of an Indian Bulbul unit, for girls aged 7-9. I would love to be able to get in touch with a Bulbul unit in one of these areas, so that my girls can write letters to their Indian counterparts, and hopefully I can also visit the unit during my travels.

      So does anyone have any contacts in the Girl Guides or Girl Scouts in Northern India? I've tried going through the 'Bharat Scouts & Guides' website to no avail. Many thanks to anyone who can help.

    • Trains, couple of questions

      by Snailman83 Online Now May 5, 2015 at 7:12 AM

      I've been looking into this and as my itinerary starts to take shape for an Delhi-Agra-Varanasi trip I still can't fully understand the train system so I have a few questions.

      1. Is it absolutely necessary to book in advance, some sites say 90 days in advance which is difficult because I have yet to decide exactly when I'm going and if I do, the likelyhood is that I will be making the booking a month or less before I go. I'm also hoping to stay about a month keeping my schedule flexible so having prearranged train tickets gets in the way of that.

      2.Will I really not be able to get seats if I wait to book once I'm there? I know and read of the quota for tourists but from the posts I've read it seems like such a lottery.


      3. Trains! There are so many of them it's confusing. How do I choose the best one, are they all the same, is it down to which has the shortest travel time?

      4. I will be flying in and departing from Delhi so my plan is to take a train from Delhi to Agra and either go back to Delhi for a few days then go to Varanasi or go straight to Varanasi from Agra after spending a few days there. Any suggestions on which would be better? I read somewhere all trains from Delhi pass through Agra anyway so there is no point in going back to Delhi before going to Varanasi from Agra.


      One more thing about that is I'm also planning trips to Jaipur, Lucknow and Allahabad or some other places but I haven't decided yet, and what if I decide to stay longer in one place and have to change up when I'm there, will I have room to make changes once tickets are booked?
