      What can i see in Hyderabad after checking-out at 12 pm and before 9 pm?

      Hyderabad Jul 16, 2016 at 9:34 PM

      I will be in Hyderabad on 9 and 10 December. On 9 December night, i plan to see Chaminar from Begumpet after dinner. How far is Chaminar from The Plaza Hotel Hyderabad in Begumpet? How much would it cost by taxi? And from 1 pm to 9 pm on 10 December, can anyone suggest where should i go to in Hyderabad to kill time? Is Golkonda in Hyderabad? The flights leaving for Singapore from Hyderabad are midnight. I have to fly at 1.40 am of 11 December from Hyderabad for Singapore.

      Suggestions for itinerary McLeod Ganj / Varanasi / Bhod Gaya / other stops on the way to Nepal?

      India Jul 2, 2016 at 9:40 PM

      Hi there!

      I am in McLeod and had a change of heart concerning my travel plans (no volunteering right now), so now I am researching other options. I basically flew into Dharamsala and haven't moved around much in India yet, so I'm looking for a simple way of transport and avoid confusing huge cities if possible .

      I'd love to see buddhist pilgrimage sites such as Varanasi and Bodh Gaya (plus any other suggestions?), and was also thinking about spending some time in Rishikesh doing Yoga.

      I have like another 10 weeks before I want to go to Nepal (probably overland?). I am not too keen of checking must see sights off my list and am perfectly fine staying in one place for a few weeks at a time, doing random courses etc.

      So i was looking into how to get around and what order makes the most sense, but I'm getting more and more confused. It seems like I have to go through Delhi no matter what mode of transportation i choose?

      I'd love to get your ideas - it seems to me like this is a no-brainer for seasoned travellers, isn't it? 

      Cheers ianchen

      Punjab itinerary

      State of Punjab Jul 4, 2016 at 12:47 PM

      We are planning a trip in Punjab, but I am not sure it will be interesting enough for foreigners. we are a couple over 50's and we have been many times in India.
      our planning is Amritsar - Bhatinda - Kapurthala - Jalandhar or Patiala - Anadpur Sahib - Chandigarh.
      We suppose the best is to rent a car with driver for all itinerary, starting in Amritsar.
      Does anyone know this area? because we couldn't find much information in the classic guides.
      I will appreciate a lot if some know a reliable agency in Amritsar to make the planning.
      Another idea is going to Manali, but the trip is too long

The order, following the visit of these cities has not been established, but the journey begins and ends in Delhi.
      I would like to ask those who have been there, which is the most suitable means of transport to move between these different cities: train, bus, taxi?

Yoga stuff and meditation are on the to do list as well as maybe hiking in the Himalayas a day or two. The hotel should be clean and with WiFi/LAN.

      Thank you for all the replies about the way to Rishikesh. We decided to take a taxi (an a/c SUV). We found a very good site www.starlim.co.in - They can also make train booking (US$10 fees), but they accept paypal that makes the transition easy and safety.
      We are now plannig our way back to Delhi - We want to be there only for a day, and we wanna a good tip : to take one of the "day tours" or to go specifically to one place like Humayn's Tomb, Akshardham or any other site?? The 2nd thing we will arrive to Delhi at 6th of april and will need a hotel (our fligth will be at 8th in early mornig). It's better to take a near airport hotel???
