I am wondering if we (2 of us) should hire a car with driver or travel by train/bus in Punjab. (Late March) . So many pros and cons.
We have 2 days to travel around, between Mohali and Amritsar. Can you suggest an itinerary?
Any chance of making this (Mohali-Amristsar) trip in a night bus?
Any idea how much a small air conditioned car with driver would cost for 2 days, 700 km?
I have 2 days to travel around Mohali and Amritsar. What's the best way to see most? Which places should I not miss visiting?
So my mom wish for almost 20 years already is going to India,I finally able save some money and bring my parent there on march, as they are pretty old now I understand it's gonna be hard for them to walk a lot, I am planning to bring them to see the northern part of India for total 20 days, so I guess it's better to rent car, our base would be Amritsar since we have relatives there to stop and greet for a few days before we start our road trip, anyone have experience renting a car in Amristar area? Estimated cost per day?
Also is this route too optimistic for a road trip? Total 19 days on road
amritsar - jammu - srinagar - dharamsala - manali - kathmandu - darjeeling - sikhim - ( some part of bhutan ) - udaipur - jaipur - amritsar
Any answer you can provide would be really appreciated, i've been trying to search in Internet for this but didn't find the best answer so far

I'll be landing in Amritsar mid-September before heading north to Dharamkot. What is your view on a woman spending the night there to visit around? Do you think it would be better to just stay a couple of hours and then just hopping on the bus?

If you think I can spend the night - can you recommend a cute hotel/b&b?
Feel free to give me any piece of info you think may help me have an idea of what to expect :)

I will be in Delhi and will continue on to Agra and then Varanasi. I wanted to take a sort of side trip for a day to Amritsar. I plan to leave via train or plane one evening and then the following evening heading out. i wanted to see if there was a way to bypass Delhi altogether and head right for Agra from Amritsar, or would I have to stop in Delhi and catch the train. In addition, are there only the 2 morning trains to agra I have seen advertised from Delhi?

How long does it take to get from the railway station to the temple? How long should I spend at the temple to truly enjoy it? Thank you...Bob

This place used to get some very good reviews but nothing that I can see that is recent. Is it still in operation and does anybody have any feedback on what it's like now. First entry I found was in an old Lonely Planet guide. Any feedback gratefully recieved. Excluding this I'm tempted to join the pilgrims at the golden temple itself. What is the position regarding leaving and returning to the dorms as I would probably want to wander off into the city for an evening meal. I'm assuming that there is a seperat enterance for the dorms as opposed to the temple?
I'm hoping to visit Amritsar for 2 days in Dec. I wonder if anyone has stayed in either of these hotels (Volga or Grand hotel) or any hotel which you would strongly recommend?

- Good service
- clean, comfortable rooms with window, don't need to be luxurious
- located near GT or central places with good eating places
