I'm flying into Mumbai International (Terminal 3) arriving very early in the morning on 4 November.
1. I would like to withdraw cash from any ATM while still at the airport so I can pay my taxi driver. I read a few years ago one traveler found 2 ATMs in the arrivals lounge but both were out of service on that day. Does anyone know if they have added a few more ATMs since then, and if most of the time the ATMs are reliable and in working order? (no guarantee of course)?
2. Are there money…
I am planning a 1-3 month trip in India starting from New Delhi and going down South all the way to Kerala, and then back up again by the Eastern Coast. Can someone please suggest me interesting places in between Tiruvannamalai town (Tamil Nadu state) and Konark Sun Temple (Odisha state)? I am mostly looking for some beautiful natural spots, interesting architecture, places of peace and power, nice relaxing gardens....anything that might have impressed you on that route.
I'm planning my first 10days-journey in India. I'm arriving in MAA and would like to leave from COK airport. So I'd like to visit all the possibile attractions long the way from one point to the other.
I don't know if this topic has been already covered , but I've been told that it's possible to get a driver there.
Anybody knows what is a fair cost for such a long-term journey, including gas, room and board?
Have you got any advise about the right way to get a driver in loco?…
I want to know about hotels near Mansa Devi, Dehli. I am planning for a trip to this place next month. Can any one suggest me where to stay or which one is best hotel to stay near Mansa devi?
I'm looking for an ashram in kerala....yes I know google, and I've even looked at previous posts here, but I still haven't found what I really want....so, my requirements are: it has to be cheap - preferably around 10 USD per day (can be a little more but none of this 30-50-100 dollars/ day nonsense as is the case with most retreats). I'm not looking for a course but an ongoing ashram where I can just join in with the daily schedule. I don't mind quality of accommodation but I'd…
We are travelling to India and considering applying for an e visa.
Is it easy to do? Are there any pitfalls we need to be aware of?
Can we take a photo of the main passport page and attach it to an email?
what about the photo size?
Do we just take a portrait photo, on a plain background, and attach it, and let them work out the size?
It is much cheaper to do an e visa, but only if it works!
Hello there fellow travellers!
We will be in Goa over the Xmas period and would like to do a roadtrip, up the coast from Palolem, in the South, from around the 24th/25th till the 29th up to the North- possibly end up in Vagador or Arambol.
I know that Goa is super busy this time of year but essentially, we would like to just see where the wind takes us and explore the beach towns on our way and where we enjoy we stay. BUT, I am worried that accommodation will be limited and we won't find…
