      Mumbai Jan 9, 2017 at 7:01 PM

      I happened to have a Samsung Galaxy S3 cell phone (USA) that I plan to travel to India with. I have heard that the frequencies used by Indian carriers for GSM-2, 3 may be different from the ones supported by Samsung S3.
      Would there be someone who is using a Samsung Galaxy S3 cell phone in India and knows that it works. Thanks.

      Hi travelling to Mumbai next week and have been looking at news articles regarding money shortages after withdrawal of larger notes. Kind of getting a mixed picture. What is actually happening?

I have been to India a lot and understand that cash is still the main way to pay for goods and services, so therefore feeling a bit concerned. Any help/tips appreciated.



    • Christ University, Bangalore -- so what's it really like?

      Bangalore Dec 25, 2016 at 1:27 PM

      Is there anyone out there among our VT people who have had any experience with Christ University in Bangalore?
      I'm mainly trying to get general information about what it is like both as an academic institution -- level of teaching, students -- and as a social atmosphere. Plus the quality of the actual, physical lay out.

      Ask because I've had no experience with higher education in India and have the opportunity to link with a variety of universities (in areas of the social sciences, business, humanities, languages) -- and Christ University, Bangalore, is one of them. But is it a good choice?

      If you know the place and feel like answering -- please be frank! Much appreciated.

      Thank you. - Eurycleia

      Travel to Shimla and near other places

      Shimla Dec 10, 2016 at 7:33 AM


      I and my family (wife, 2 kids - 11 years and 7 years) will reach Shimla on 17-Dec-2016. We will start from Delhi to Shimla at around 8 AM by rented Car. This is the first first we will visit that area. Need to book our hotels there.

      1. Pls. let us know which area of Shimla will be good place to stay for us (new tourists)? I mean where many tourists stay.

      2. We heard that Kufri is also an attractive place to visit. In that case, should we stay directly in Kufri instead of Shimla?

      3. Is Manali usually colder than Shimla (asking for expert opinion though I am following weather there)? What are the good place in Manali to stay (like what I mean above).

      Jaipur Sep 17, 2016 at 12:17 AM

      I'll be staying at Bani Park so wondering if I should, on arrival at the airport, take advantage of Sanganer's proximity and ask the state tour desk to recommend a taxi tour (?1 hour) of the cloth- and paper-making area, thence to Bani Park (with my suitcase). Wondering about feasibility/advisability and cost.

      I'm also keen on puppets and wonder where I could see performances.

      Bus Stand close to Nasiyan temple?

      Ajmer Sep 10, 2016 at 7:33 PM

      I read in some other forum that there is a Bus Stand very close to Nasiyan temple to take the bus to Puskhar.

      I was looking at maps and searching to confirm this but I haven't find any more info on it.
      1) Is there a bus stand there?
      2) are those buses the same that start their route close to the train station?
      3) Is there any "flagging" signal I have to do so the bus stop or they always stop there?

      I would prefer to take the bus from there but otherwise I will take a taxi back to bus station.

      I'm tempted to get a taxi from Jaipur to Bundi if it's safe to do so. Also wondering about a taxi Bundi to Sanganer; this might be more sensible than retracing to Jaipur, then bus to Sanganer - which I imagine would probably be a full day excursion.

    • travel time by car to Udaipur from Jaipur

      Udaipur Mar 8, 2015 at 6:44 PM

      I am planning for a trip to Rajasthan. I have 5 days to spend while I am there and am looking to setup an itinerary.
      I plan to drive from Jaipur to Udaipur and spend roughly 2 days at each place.

      In order to plan for the trip, it helps to have a good approximation for travel time between the two places. Google maps estimates travel time (one-way) between the two places to be roughly 6 hours. How accurate is this?

      It would also help if you could point out must-see attractions (excluding religious places). I am interested in seeing the palaces, lakes, market/shopping areas.

      More information about my background... I am Indian and a budget traveller.
