Well, about changing clothes in Kerala, to stay fresh and hygienic you will need to do it twice in a day to be frank. Once after taking bath, and once may be before going to bed. So there is no way you could not get stinky without changing clothes after every bath. Doing laundry by hand is not such a bad thing. Maybe this is the time when you can learn ...

Painting with broad brush strokes about some very large and varied countries here, but I'd go for Japan. India I'd rule out due to the climate alone: March to May is the hot season, and it will be ferociously hot (40+ °C) in the Gangetic plains around Delhi. Of course you could head down south, but then the Taj will be off limits. And then there's the ...

Disclaimer / qualifier: I live in Tokyo Go to Japan. Any trip from Brazil to Asia is going to cost a lot, you may as well make the most of it. Japan has no more or less in the tourist / culture / educational areas than China or India. It wins hands-down in the environment category. tap water is drinkable anywhere (probably better than Brazil) public ...

Visiting India? The two other answers have been rather unwelcoming to India (one of them now deleted), and not just as an Indian, but as someone completely sold into the fact that travelling in India is extremely interesting and fun I would like to answer with a positive bias, strictly speaking I have no knowledge of the other two destinations so I am not ...

Lets get realistic, even if you do whatever other people may say, humans need food and a place to sleep, so absolute free travel is impossible, unless you walk(using your own energy), beg (ask for a lift) or steal (travel without ticket in a train and pretend to have no money to any ticket checking staff, which is highly highly discouraged). Having said, ...

Booking Nights Hotels count the nights you spend rather than the days. A night is defined as the time period between hotel check-in and check-out times and, whilst this is often less than 24 hours, it will inevitably span over a calendar-night. Check-in Times In general each hotel decides its own check-in and check-out times. There is no unique rule. ...

Yes, visitors (and transit passengers) from nearly all countries require a visa to enter India. Recently (27 November 2014), India implemented ETA procedures, which allow citizens of over 40 countries including Australia, to apply for a tourist visa online. See the Indian government site Tourist Visa on Arrival for more details and online application forms. ...

India has a 230V 50Hz (voltage of 230 Volts, frequency of 50 Hertz) system. Therefore any electronics purchased for a country with this voltage and frequency will obviously work. However the situation in reality is much better than this. Almost all modern electronics is designed to work with a wide range of AC input voltages and frequencies, because they ...

Indian railways apply a restriction to the total weight of your luggage in kilograms. You can see this as per the luggage rule. For your class of travel, the limit is 50 Kilograms. Though there are dimension limits, I think being standard size your luggages should not exceed them: Trunks, suitcase and boxes having outside measurement of 100 cms. x 60 ...

The information you have provided is both valid and correct, but just to add an insider perspective so to say (though technically I am no longer employed in the Indian Railways). I will also try and add a scenario where your thought process can backfire for others. Indian Railway has a (in)famous quota system which is complicated but in all fairness works ...

As far as I know, all hotels provide a check-in and check-out time (i.e. the earliest time you can come in and the latest time you can come out). It is specific to every hotel/accommodation so you should be able, at the time you book the room, to know which apply. While your question is very broad and cannot be answered with certainty (you should check the ...

You can take a direct bus from New Delhi to Kathmandu from Ambedkar stadium bus terminus and goes up to Swaymbhu bus terminal at Kathmandu. It is a 30 hour journey and is a daily bus service both ways. Ticket from New Delhi to Kathmandu costs INR 2300. This has only started 2-3 days ago.

Once a visa is issued - you can travel from any country to the country that issued you the visa. This is a general rule and the only restriction that I know of (which does not apply to your situation) is when emergency travel documents are issued; or in some cases - special visas are issued that define the mode of travel (for example, if your Saudi Arabian ...

It comes down to what you want: the minimum requirement, or everything, to be as safe as possible Let's say the minimum. Many clinics and travel vaccination centers exist to make money (as do some hospitals, to be fair). As a result, it's arguably a conflict - you're asking what the minimum safeguard is, and they're telling you 'well it's really best to ...

You would need a visa to get out of the airport. Australians can now avail visa on arrival in India but it would cost $60 per person and to make it easier for yourself you can apply for the visa online and also make a payment.

It will be really hot and sticky so clothes won't last for long. I used to wash my clothes whilst having a shower to kill two birds with one stone. Then they dry really quickly as it is so hot. There will be loads of places doing laundry though.

You need to fill a "registered baggage" form at the check in desk and declare at the time of check in that you are carrying a gun in your baggage. The check in staff will get you to fill a form. All airlines charge a fee for carrying firearms and they will charge you the same fee for an air gun too. The charges differ from airline to airline and if you ...

All the above answers provided are perfect, except the last part. RAC tickets, for this purpose are considered confirmed tickets, and refund is provided accordingly, in this specific case though, RAC is not even possible in Tatkal. However for tickets booked on-line and promoted to RAC (and even without a confirmed sleeping berth) at the time of ...

Recently, (Pursuant to Indian Union Budget 2014) the limit which (as I last saw when I travelled into India) was Rs. 45,000 for countries other than a few neighbouring countries and all the information relating to this change are contained in the link below. http://www.cbec.gov.in/customs/cs-act/notifications/notfns-2014/cs-nt2014/csnt50-2014.pdf Read ...
