      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?

      How Long To Stay

      by soundchaseruk Online Now Apr 8, 2014 at 7:01 AM

      I will be stopping over at least one night in October to see the camel fair in Pushkar. I will be coming from Agra or maybe somewhere in between (?). I see the travel distance is about 6 hours from Agra so would like to find somewhere to see on the way to Pushkar, if there is anywhere that is ?

      So arriving late afternoon I guess and staying one or two nights? I read there is not much to see here besides the start of the camel fair and a walk around the lake. I am thinking if I arrive late afternoon from either Agra or ?? then a full day in Pushkar, one more evening and then move on to Jodhpur.

      Does that sound sensible?

I am arriving in Puskar on 18/19th January 2011, staying for about 4 nights. Will travel to Ajmer by train and take Tuk-Tuk from there. This hotel is very well situated for my needs.

      Cna not find the hotel

      by Terje1966 Online Now Jun 10, 2010 at 1:10 PM

      Hi

      I was in Pushkar in 2005 and slept in a wery nice hotel. Now I cant seem to find
      it and i have forgotten the name.
      Just after we entered Pushkar from Ajmer we took a sharp turn to the left. Then we followed a narrow road almost to the end(a few hundered meters and there was the hotel on the right side of the road. The hotel had 3 floors (I think) and an open air restaurant(not on roof)in the end that turned away from town. The small pool was also on that side. From this restaurant you had a perfect view of the mountains and temples in the hills and in the backyard close to the hotel there was a large garden growing wegetables.
      Can anyone help me with this hotel name ?
      And by the way. I recommend it!

      We are taking a tour of Rajasthan through Indus Travels in Canada and will stay a night in Pushkar near the end of the camel fair. All the advance information indicated we would be staying in a hotel but now we are told we will stay in a tent, and so far they have not been able to tell us at which tent camp. While the tents sound fine for lodging, I am concerned about security of luggage, etc. in a town of 14,000 invaded by 200,000 during the fair. I would appreciate any information/insight anyone could provide. We are seniors. Thanks.
