What do you look forward from your IDEAL weekend getaway
Hello Fellow Travelers

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 project.

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.

Amartya Banerjee

Planning a Trip to Kochi!

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.

And can anybody suggest good tour operator for travelling around Kerala, who offer reasonable Kerala Tour Packages?

Darshan by way of trekking
Dear All,

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 option.

Thanks to all in advance
