Hello fellow travellers!
Although I have travelled to many areas...I have yet to explore India and Nepal.
My partner and I want to head there this January. We love adventure, hiking, excursions, beaches, markets, and just cruising around and exploring the culture.
Many many people keep advising me not to travel to India and Nepal due to safety concerns. Of course, the media sensationalizes everything and all you read about is rapes, beheadings, kidnappings, disappearances, etc...
I have been pushing that aside and still wanting to travel there...however the constant reminder from friends and family does creep in my mind.
So......I am turning to you guys. To those who have travelled in these areas recently..particularly women...I would love to hear your experiences with this!
I am very naive to the Indian culture and would love to hear from you all!
Thank you so... more »
I will be looking a long road trip for 10 days during Christmas vacations. I will be driving my own starting from Los Angeles.
After many good suggestions from trekker502, CascadeBob and bzookaj and few readings, I learned that most feasible is to go towards Santa FE, NM.
I have already visited San Diego, places around LA, Kingman, Antelope, Grand Canyon, Zion, Las Vegas, Death Valley, Joshua Tree, Monterey, Big Sur, Yosemite, Mammoth Lakes, Lone Pine. I will be travelling with my wife and we are not much into hiking. We are mostly interested in scenic places and drives.
When going through few other forums, I found few places like Anza Borrego, Organ Pipe Cactus, Tuscon, Tombstone, Bisbee, Salt Lake Canyon, Petrified Forest, Hopi Reservations, Jerome. But there are very few reviews on these places on yelp and other sites. Are these places worth visiting ? Or please suggest places a... more »
Next january my wife and I visit Pokhara for three nights, because of the scenery and the chance to see the snowy high mountains. To make a track is appealing, but we're not fit enough to do that, though a half day would be very nice.
We'll visit Sarangkot and row the boat on the lake.
What else do you think will make Pokhara for us unforgettable?
Maybe walk from Sarangkot back to P lake site. We can do that, but is it nice enough?
Or a half day Yoga?? Is that available?
Have you been there? What is your idea for us?
Hi. I've bought a one way ticket to bangkok and i'm now looking into obtaining a tourist visa for thailand and a visa for vietnam. It seems on the thailand application form that proof of onward travel plans like a plane ticket home is required which i don't have because i want to go with the flow and decide my next destination once i get there. The vietnam application requires an intended entry date and the length of days you'll be staying there. Just like thailand, i don't want to decide on dates yet and want to decide later. Can i leave these sections blank on the application forms or are they absolutely nesseccary to fill out? Thanks
I'll be travelling from Marrakech to Fez and plan to spend a couple of days in Fez before heading to Chefchaouen.
What's the easiest way to reach Chefchaeoen from Fez? Someone told me it's a 2 hour journey by bus but it looked much further than 2 hours when I checked a map!
Please advise! :)
I want to travel around India visiting the best yoga teachers in India, preferably low key and not hugely commercial and business orientated, I find this loses their essence.
Am not into Ashtanga yoga, prefer slower peaceful yoga. Looking for some special, truly inspirational teachers.
Would really appreciate any suggestions. If you prefer you can pm me.
I've also posted this on Trip Advisor, so apologies in advance if you've already come upon my query. I'm a 27-year-old solo female traveller heading to Ethiopia in January/February (for Timkat in Gondar); and I'm hoping for some advice on my itinerary and its timing. I plan to do as much as I can independently using public transport (except the Danakil and Omo Valley). I have no problem with overnight or early morning buses, etc., and generally try to embrace the trappings of less-than-comfortable local road journeys for the experience (and the same goes for accommodation - a sort of 'do as the locals do' outlook I guess).
Anyway, this is my rather jam-packed itinerary for Ethiopia at this stage:
Jan 12: Evening arrival in Jijiga/Harar overland from Somaliland
Jan 13: Harar (with potential visit to Babile)
Jan 14: Harar to Addis
Jan 15-17: Addis to Bahir Dar & visit ... more »
Just wonder if Sialkot is a reasonable place to base my travel in and around Pakistan and Kashmir? Is it a safe city? Can transportation be easily arranged?
There is a good flight deal from Dubai to Sialkot. I have never been to Pakistan or Kashmir and have two weeks to spare around Xmas.
I live in Tianjin, but have the option of moving to Suzhou. I would be living in the Suzhou Industrial Park.
For those who have been to both cities, how do they compare? Very few expats enjoy living in Tianjin. Is it the same in Suzhou or a more pleasant environment?
I am planning for a trip to the western part of USA mainly as I would like to spend my time in Universal Orlando (The Wizarding World of Harry Potter). I have research Orlando and it seems like there's so many things to do in Florida itself in which i do not want to miss out too.
I am now contemplating on should i spend my entire 2 weeks in Florida only or to travel along the rest of the cities in western side of USA and how long should I spend in Universal Orlando?
If i were to cover the entire western side of USA, where should i begin with? (start - end location).
Any kind of advise is highly appreciated :)
I was wondering if anyone has recommendations for liveaboards in the Maldives?
we'll be diving late december to mid january
im after direct websites, it seems most things I google lead to a third party website and prices are inflated
any help would be much appreciated!
I am from Singapore. I've been travelling outside quite awhile. I will be travelling from Nepal to Iran, have a flight transit through Doha. From I had read on Iran, do not have master or visa, and oversea withdraw through Cirrus/PLUS network, so I couldn't do a overseas cash withdrawal in Iran. I wonder do the ATM in Doha airport Terminal B enable oversea withdraw in euro or there is better alternative?
Your input is greatly appreciated.
I'm about to finalize my 8 day Lhasa - EBC tour in late December and noted that EBC has been closed since mid-Oct due to snow. Most information I have seen indicates that EBC is unlikely to open by late December.
Can anyone confirm if Rongbuk Monastery is open? My tour operator said Rongbuk is closed (I'm not sure how much to trust them since they just told me about EBC being closed yesterday). SnowLions website indicates that it is open. Another report stated that it was open, but only for non-American and non-Japanese tourists. I think I will be just as happy viewing Everest from Rongbuk as from EBC...thoughts?
Is there a good source for obtaining the most recent news?
