      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,

      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 :)
