      Wifi Rental

      India 8 hours ago

      I enjoy a virtual disconnection while traveling. But being a female solo traveler in India, I was told by a local that is always good to have a way to have contact in case of emergency... I really don't think I need it as I have never need it before..there is always a way, but it may not be a terrible idea if I rent a wifi hotspot during the trip, however it seems Delhi airport doesn't have a place for this type of rentals (while in other more secure countries I always see them and have never rent them!) All what I have found sounds complicated as to going in places in Delhi to rent it however I'm not staying there and will leave to other cities right away. Has somebody find a place in the airport to rent this or having something deliver to your hotel?

    • Planning to travel North East in September last.

      India Aug 10, 2016 at 2:45 AM


      I am planning a trip to North East from Delhi for about 10 days. Since I know 10 days is not much to complete all the seven sisters, I am planning to leave Assam and Arunachal out of it( since these are very big states and would try to cover them separately some other time). So, can some one help me in:
      a. Out of remaining five(Nagaland, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Tripura), which two -three shall I pick. I want to spend some time rather than just touching all the states.
      b. From security point of view which ones are safe. We all are males from Delhi.
      c. Is September end, October first right time to do it or they still remain impacted by the retreating monsoons.

      Please feel free to point out any thing I have missed that I shall take care.

      Thanx fellow travellers.

      Hi all!

      I’m thinking of planning a trip to Goa for a (much-needed) holiday. Can anyone help me out with the best resorts/ time of year to travel? I’m hoping to soak up a bit of sun, explore the cultural attractions and do a little shopping. I’ve heard there are some absolute steals in Goa! Also, if anyone has a rough idea on prices (transport, food etc.) that’d be really helpful too. Thanks in advance.

    • Gecko Tours VS Intrepid Tours

      India Aug 16, 2016 at 9:39 PM

      I'm a 23 year old female planning to travel India in early Feb 2017 by myself.

      I was intending on doing the 16 day South India Unplugged Tour (Intrepid) but they've recently changed the itinerary (and name) and increased the price. Because of this I had a look at other tours offered in the same area of India. I came across the Gecko Tour 'Simply South India' which has a very similar itinerary, although cuts out Madurai and Periyar National Park. This tour is only 13 days but over $300 cheaper.

      But through looking at varying tours, I've discovered India Gecko tours average age is around 18-30 whereas India Intrepid tours have ages from 15-70.

      I'm simply seeking advise on both tour age ranges, even though Intrepid states that the ages could be 15-70, what is the actual average age? And are families likely to be on these types of tours?

      As a solo female traveller, I think I would enjoy travelling with like minded travellers around my age.

      I'm also seeking advise on the 2 destinations that I'd be missing out on. Is the $300 saving and more appropriate age group worth missing out on 3 days and 2 destinations? I am currently a University student so money is slightly tight. Would I be best using this $300 saving to put it towards other India activities when I finish the tour or in North India.

      Here are the links to the tours:

      And the tour I plan on going from

      Goa - Mumbai - Varanasi - Delhi - Jaipur - Agra - Mathura & Vrindavan for Holi Festival.

      All up in India for about 45 days (then moving onto South East Asia but that's for another forum)

      A little more about myself. I'm basically up for anything, hiking, camel rides, desert safari's, you name it. Any North India suggestions would also be awesome!

      Look forward to hearing your thoughts :)

      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?

      Cna not find the hotel

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


      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!

      by mollynsteve Online Now Oct 22, 2007 at 3:02 PM

      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.
