I am Amartya Banerjee
working on a project on
Weekend Getaways. All of us at some point of time
have taken respite over the weekend by escaping from the
bustle of the Indian Metropolis and finding salvation in the
calmness or sereneness of nearby places of interest with
friends, families or in solo trips.
I was hoping
if you can help by sharing from your experience about what
makes your weekend getaway a memorable one and currently
what difficulties you face while planning and going for a
weekend getaway. Please
note I am not looking to sell you any travel package related
to weekend getaway. I am asking in travel forums
about traveler's experience so that I can insights for my
I am really looking forward to your
response in this thread. Feel free to comment on any aspect
of weekend travel, be it places of visit, transportation,
lodging and hotels, things to do etc.

My client is planning a trip to Kochi and he
would like to have Kerala lunch and tea. He doesn’t speak
English very well. I explored so many tour operators in
Kochi. After much research I selected "KTC Group"
tourkeralapackages.com to offer a tour to Kerala in their
native language. Did anybody have any experience with this
tour operator? Please share your experience.
can anybody suggest good tour operator for travelling around
Kerala, who offer reasonable Kerala Tour Packages?

We are planning to have a Tirumala
Tirupati Darshan by opting a trekking option instead of
vehicle in the month of early October. Our group is aging
bet'n 45 - 50 yrs. Following are our initial concerns wrt
the above :
1) How much is the total distance
? 2) Approx. how much time it will take to complete the
trekking assuming a normal speed ? 3) Is there enough
crowd on the way ? Is it too crowdy (like Jai Mata Di,
Vaishnav Devi) or is it lonely ? 4) Is there any
special provision for trekkers for early Darshan ? If yes,
how & where to approach ? 5) What is the idle time
to start trekking ? 6) While returning from Darshan, is
there any vehicle facility from TTD or we need to do our own
arrangement ? How much it would cost ? and whether it would
be easily available, since while going-up we had opted
trekking option ? 7) How much total time will be
required for trekking - Darshan - returning (by vehicle
etc.) ? 8) Please mention, if there is any special
advise / guidance, before proceeding with trekking
Thanks to all in advance Posted: on Mon Aug 17, 2015 03:51 pm
