    • Mosquitos, clothing and repellant

      by antuantuan Online Now Nov 18, 2012 at 1:21 AM

      I am going to Pune in 10 days for work and will stay at the Marriott Hotel and Convention Centre. Work wise, the location is Hinjewadi Infotech Park.

      What type of clothes should I bring? Is it safe to wear shorts and short sleeves during the day? Reading on the internet, they seem to be discouraged because of the risk of daylight mosquitos that carry Dengue Fever.

      When sunbathing and swimming at the Hotel, should I spray myself with mosquito repellant?

      Finally, should I spray any parts of my body that are covered with clothes with DEET, day and night, including my face?

    • Groupon deal in Pune?

      by Sonya12 Online Now May 31, 2011 at 7:10 AM

      Hi all,
      Groupon is really famous in the US but I am wondering if it works the same way in India as well.
      They have a very cheap hotel deal with Ginger hotels which has 2-3 branches in Pune (

      My question is, is ginger a good brand? It is a TATA backed venture so I am quite hopeful of positive reviews.

      And also, has anyone had experience buying travel deals with groupon india?

      Thanks in advance!

      by sharma_amity Online Now May 21, 2011 at 4:42 AM

      I ll be in pune next week and ll have two free days on week end (Sat-Sun). I want to utilize these two days by going to Shirdi on first day and Mumbai on second day. I have questions regarding this:

      1. Is it possible to visit these two places in two days. In Shirdi I just want to have darshan and back to Pune and in Mumbai I just want to visit Marine drive, Juhu beach and Ashtvinayak Mandir. I am seeing it possible by having hectic schedule by travelling 8 hrs daily.

      2. If yes then what should be my travelling mode Taxi or Bus?
