Hi everyone, My partner and I are thinking about spending a couple of months in Goa. One thing that worries us is the heat and humidity. We are from Canada which is quite cold and have never lived in a humid climate, does anyone know how long it takes to acclimatize? The difference between being right on the coast or inland? We're worried that we'll invest in this trip but be miserable with the heat. What do you think? Frank from Newfoundland

I was planning to travel to New Delhi for 4 days in June for tourism. I will be then going to Nepal for 4 days and then was hoping to return to Varanasi for another 4 days. I plan to apply for two separate e-Tourist visas since they are single entry, but I was wondering if the computer system will allow me to apply for two in a row. I would use one when I entered New Delhi and the other one entering Varanasi.

Has anyone done this before and do you think it would work? I would like to avoid…

Hi all,

Quick question that I am confused about and hope someone could shed some light on:
I have applied for and been granted an e-visa for India for this month. But the email confirmation states..
- Please carry a copy of this e-Tourist Visa (eTV) at the time of Travel.

So what exactly should I be taking with? I have an email status with the application ID and saying that the E-Visa is granted but apart from that is there some sort of official document that I am missing? Basically what is the…

Hi

I will be arriving in Mumbai at 2am on 26th Dec 2016. I was planning on staying in the Colaba area for 2 days before catching a train south to Gokarna then Kerala. Most of the hotels I have looked at have their earliest check-in time at 12 noon. It would not be a nice waiting for several hours in a hotel reception after a long flight before I could access my room. Does anyone know of some hotel that has 24hr check in and that is on the budget side of things? Or any other suggestions about…

We (family with small kids, living in Delhi) are thinking of destinations for a week away in July or August. We know this is monsoon time but we think we can deal with some rain. We'll probably stay in the same place the whole time, when it rains a lot we'll stay in. Our hope is to find a place we can do some walking in a natural environment but where flooding or landslides are unlikely to happen. We were thinking of Cherrapunji or somewhere in Great Himalayan National Park, though are open to…

Hello hello

I would like some advice for a north/NE itinerary, I'm there for 6 weeks from late May, flying in and out of Delhi. First time in India.

Main plan is to slowly travel north from Delhi to Leh, via Rishikesh, Shimla, Manali, Dharamshala, spending a few of days in each area and maybe a week in Leh/Ladakh. Then I will travel across to Srinagar, stay for a few days and fly to Delhi. Most journeys would be bus/taxi/shared car. Could this all be done in around 4 weeks?

If so, I am…
