Hello all,

I am a young woman travelling to India to meet a friend who is working in a school in the Uttarakhand region. I have booked a flight to Delhi and will need to spend one night there before getting 6am train onwards to my destination. Does anyone have a good recommendation for a mid range hotel which is located near the train station in Delhi and which would facilitate an airport pick up?

Many thanks,

A

We will be in Leh to do the Chadar frozen river hike from January 7 - 15th and are interested in visiting Nubra Valley at this time- ideally after the hike but it could be before. I am struggling to find information on transport/costs/guesthouse/guides/permits at this time. Time is not a factor but we would like to buy our plane tickets now to get a better price. I saw one post that showed as a foreigner you need a permit and have to have 4 people- not sure if this is the case? Please give…

I have been looking at airbnb for accommodation in Goa over Christmas and am confused. In many instances I see places advertised as "accommodates 5 people" but then the ad says there is 1 bed. Not sure how that can accommodate 5 people. I have seen ads similar to this with variations in many of the accommodations listed. More people can be accommodated that there are places to sleep. Can someone please explain this to me :)

Dear traveller friends,

I will be travelling to Goa at the end of this year with 3 friends for 8 days.
We would like to make the most of our time so we prepared an itinerary and we would like to get a taxi with a driver to be able to go from one point to the other without loosing much time. But up until now, I haven't got any reply although I have contacted several companies.

Our plan is here under - do you have an idea of which company could propose that kind of service?

Thank you very much…

I am wondering about getting a new back to back tourist visa for India. I've been here in India nearly 4 years on tourist visas. There's never been a problem getting the actual visa in my passport.

But on last occasion coming in from Colombo checking in at airport was difficult because they wanted an onward flight booking. Then later in Chennai immigration officer was unhappy- and rude. I gathered she was observing I had only been out for 2 weeks.

Some time ago they had the rule you had to…
