      Hyderabad Nov 7, 2016 at 3:36 AM

      Has anyone recently cleared Customs and Immigration at Hyderabad Rajiv Gandhi International Airport for overseas flight? Does the queue really take one hour to clear? How many hours are enough to check-in for international flight at Hyderabad Airport? Must travelers from an un-connected domestic flight set aside 4 hours to check-in and clear Immigration queue at Hyderabad Airport?

      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?

      Just a call out for anyone in the same boots as me.. In two days (providing the road is open) I'll be heading to Srinagar from Jammu via bus. Is anyone interested in joining me? or perhaps meeting in Srinagar?

      I'm 20 years old, Australian and travelling solo around J&K. Having just left Nepal, I'm keen to meet up with a fellow traveler for some company. My interests include trekking, documentary photography, adventure sports and so on.

      Hoping to do a full circuit of J&K over the next few weeks with day trips to the lesser visited areas. Also looking to do a bit of trekking in Ladakh. If there's anyone out there that's interested, please let me know!

      Cheers!

      Eden.
