      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? I arrive in Coimbatore from Chennai by Air Carnival at nearly 1 pm local time on 10 December.

      Hello,
      I'll be in Guwahati, State of Assam, 4 and 5 November 2007; I am looking for a very budget friendly accomodation: a hotel, or any sort of accomodation, as long as it is a safe one, of course, for 1 person for two days. I will arrive at the Guwahati airport at about 7 pm, 4 November: is there an info point there, so that I won't have a hard time finding an accomodation without booking first ? I'd like to have a very downtown place to stay: is there some sort of shuttle to and from the airport ?

      One more point: is there the Guwahati old town where one can get the flavor of non modern India ?

      Thank you for any reply anyone of you will kindly post
