    • Planning to travel North East in September last.

      India Aug 10, 2016 at 2:45 AM

      Hi,

      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.

      Goa Aug 21, 2016 at 11:25 PM

      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:

      intrepidtravel.com/au/india/...

      geckosadventures.com/en-au/i...

      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 :)

      Hello,

      Myself and wife want to visit Andaman in May to celebrate our anniversary. We want a nice recommendation for hotel and places so below questions so far:

      1> Weather during May

      If it is raining then I would prefer a really nice hotel recommendation - 4 stars or similar
      If not then a convenient nice hotel would be good. 3 star or even lower

      2> We are flexible in dates maybe 7 days. So should teh split be 5 days port blair, 2 days Havelock as most sites and packages are offering

      3> Hotel recommendations in both places to book online

      4> Travel within the islands - is it simple to arrange once there or booking a package is important?

      Appreciate the help. We like becah side hotels if the weather is going to be sunny.

      appreciate any help.

      Some questions about getting to Andaman Island

      I guess the first and most important thing is if the permit is still available on arrival? I am a lone male Canadian traveler wanting to go there during Chinese new year. Will i be able to get eth permit on arrive at the airport there or should it be arranged ahead of time? if can get it there, is there a delay period or same day?

      I am also having trouble finding flights to this island. I Have been checking sites like http://www.flykingfisher.com/ but so far not having luck, makes em think i am getting the destination name wrong.

      I am traveling from Taiwan and probabyl going to go to Kuala Lumpur as its the cheapest flight from here that can then go to many places. Not many cheap flights direct from Taiwan this time of year. But I am assuming that there are still only direct flights form India to these islands, right?

      My maximum travel time form leaving and returning to Taiwan is Jan 21-29, so pretty short. My reason for going here is to photograph the plants and animals, especially geckos.

      Thanks a lot for any current info :)
