Now I am making itinerary for traveling India. I hope to see Le Corbusier's archtectures. So,I will visit Chandigarh on the way from Amritsar to Delhi. But the day is Saturday. Would someone let me know if I will be able to visit capitol complex building on Saturday as well as weekdays.
My father and I are considering a visit to Uttarakand next year. I would like to make a loop through the following places with a car and driver over a period of 10-14 days: Almora-Kausani-Baijnath-Bageshwar-Munsyari-Pithoragarh (and other smaller surrounding villages).
We usually travel in June and July, however this is far from ideal for this region. It would be a shame to completely miss out on the mountain views due to the monsoon clouds. Thinking about April, May, June and July, how late…
I had my passport and wallet stolen in Ho Chi Mihn City in Vietnam but now thankfully have an ETD - emergency British Passport and am in HCMC getting all the visas I need to leave and continue my onward travels.
My return flight to the UK leaves from Bangkok but we have a one and a half hour stop over in Delhi to change planes. The British Gov website says that I need to get a visa for this airside transit but it also says I need TWO ETD's (Emergency Passports). One to get into Delhi…
I am traveling by myself to India (Rajesthan mainly) and was wondering if anyone knows how much the cost of hiring a driver / car will cost per day for a 10 day trip. I was quoted 3500 INR per day (includes economy sedan with AC, driver meals & accommodation and tax). Is this reasonable?
Thank you friends!
I am planning to fly from Kathmandu to Jodhpur with a stopover in Delhi. I was told that immigration is at the Delhi airport. How much time do I have to estimate for it? Is 2.5 h sufficient time or does it usually take longer? I would like to be on the save side. I appreciate any tips. Thanks!
I will need to stay in or outside Dindigul, Tamil Nadu, a few times this year, does anyone know of a quiet and not expensive place to stay. I would be happy to stay a little outside the town also, that could be nice if I knew a good place
I know this scam is documented in various sources but just thought I would mention I was in Delhi a few days and visited the train station. There was a guy, (black trousers and white shirt) waiting a the main entrance who approached me and said I wasn't allowed in without a ticket and that the tourist booking office is 'up there across the road...' Unfortunately for him I already had my ticket (booked online back home to Kalka) and I was just checking the station out the day before! (and knew…
I am planning to travel to Rishikesh around Christmas and do a Yoga Course (Iyengar)
I am wondering- is Rishikesh busy around Xmas ? (like for example Goa)?
And then: Can anyone recommend a place for Iyengar ?
I had Omkarananda in mind, but it seems difficult to book there using an non-Indian credit card...)
Many thanks in advance
