The reason is relatively straightforward: June - September is Monsoon time, the prevailing wind switches from southeast to southwest and brings massive amounts of rain and humidity. Goa is on the western coast of India, so the resulting wave heights are significantly greater and the waves are much more forceful. This means that both the waves and the ...

Purely speculation, but maybe it's what's under the water. In Japan, east-coast beaches close in September. The waves are no problem, there are very few rip currents, but there are a lot of jellyfish in the fall.

After doing a web search, most of the seasonal references to Goa during the "off season" months (which are the monsoon months) are discussing the heavy waves and more constant and stronger on-shore wind. Coupled with the rains of the monsoon and the normal oceanic issues (rip tide, etc) and the ocean is usually marked off limits. While some (younger) ...

Having carefully completed on-line form, obtained photos in right format (did it myself but quite difficult), and double checked everything I sent it Royal Mail Special Delivery on 13 August 2014. Received back today 21 August 2014. Don't know if this is typical - have done it before which means they can refer back to previous visa number - but why pay an ...

I am not a lawyer. That being said, if your friend is a legal driver in India, and has an Indian driver's license, is over 18, and was driving the type of vehicle she is licensed to drive, then India is listed in Appendix C.

One factor that hasn't been mentioned is noise abatement procedures which are put in place to avoid noise pollution. For example, heathrow, gatwick and stansted all limit flights as they are located in urban areas; so if your flight is connecting through these airports, it may also dictate timings. Boeing provides a comprehensive database that lists ...

Similar to what Tom mentions, I concur that one answer doesn't fit all. But there are many factors (unfortunately at this point I don't have much sources for them) which can be considered, As you mentioned, European and US airports do not operate at night time hours, but I don't see this as a problem. For instance, DEL to FRA is covered by two direct ...

Flights are planned based on a variety of reasons, with one of the biggest reason being connecting with "banks" at the departing and arriving airports. Banks are time periods when a large percentage of flights land and depart at a hub airport. By timing your flights to arrive for the morning bank in the USA means easier connections for their passengers ...

It's a combination of a lot of things, but the 2 most important are: 1: Lack of reciprocal agreements India has had visa barriers against foriegn visitors for a long time, stemming from a time when it didn't particularly want tourists.

As one simple but quantifiable example, two of the conditions for a country to qualify for the US's Visa Waiver Program are: Their Adjusted Visa Refusal Rate must be below 3%, and The country must provide visa-free access to US citizens. India fails on both counts: The AVRR for Indian citizens in 2013 was 18.7%, 6x higher than required. This is worse ...

I believe the answer is immigration, immigration and immigration (real or perceived). In Europe at least, visa requirements and enforcement measures are motivated mostly by the risk that the people in question would try to enter the country and stay there illegally (and of course all the political posturing around that risk). It could be argued that ...

Being an Indian myself I can understand the frustration of having to apply for a visa for almost every country that you travel to. This Wikipedia article gives a fairly up-to-date information about the visa requirements for Indian citizens. As you can see, most countries that do not require an Indian passport holder to get a visa are in Asia and Africa. I ...

I really don't understand the need. If you have an unlocked phone, getting a SIM card is almost as easy as buying groceries. I do it every time I go there. Typically the pre-paid SIM card costs Rs 15($0.25) and can be used in a couple of hours after being bought. Also costs are quite low at about Rs 1.2($0.02) per minute. Service providers usually vary ...

For me the time is of importance - the whole tourist industry is based on this. There are three ways I think of India when 'partitioning' it: The first would be by the parts that are affected by the monsoon season (there are two main ones in India) and according to the time of your visit. The next "division" I would make would be: Northwest, Northeast, ...
