Travel site - like Travelfish - on India?
1st July, 2008
We are combining a trip to Asia with one month in India - and although we have found guide books, we would so much like to do research on the internet.
We are especially interested in sites with descriptions on hotels and guesthouses - but NOT the ones from LP as these tend to be overrun.
Can anyone out there help us, please? We would love a site that included travelling with children :-)

The best India website I'm aware of is India Mike.

Thank you a bunch. I have had a quick look at the site, and although it is not nearly as good as travelfish, it seems to turn in the right direction.
And I can certainly pick off some good ideas.

India is a vast country and one can not see whole of it in one month. In fact even 6 months will not be enough. Therefore decide what you want to see and then collect information. North & South India is for Historical places, Temples etc. whereas Western India if for beaches, caves and the megacity of Mumbai.

I was in South India 3 months and didn't even make it to the east coast or the north... one month is not enough. India Mike is a great resource.

another great Indian resource is cleartrip.com. you can book & pay for trains online. It's super easy & secure saves the hassle of going to the train station. you can see how many tickets are still available & waitlisted numbers as well. and while you cannot take advantage of foreigner or ladies quotas it's an efficient way to book trains.
Have fun & agree with other posters about picking one area to concentrate on :India is huge & travel can be difficult & frustrating.
