Help! Colombo to Kerala to Goa?  (6 Answers)

Hello, My friend and i are traveling to Sri Lanka/India for the 1st time December -Jan. We will fly in and out of Colombo. We want to visit Kandy,Kerala & Goa.

We were told there was a ferry that would transport us from Colombo to Goa but I cant find any up to date information:(. Also, We were told about the train between Kerala and Goa.

1.)What is the best type of seating for price and comfort?
2.)How much is the train ?
3.) All of the tours for Kandy and Kerala seem really expensive to book online. How easy is it to book a tour or sight see once we arrive?

Sorry so long! Any info would be great! especially website links

Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · March 08, 2007
First time in India  (10 Answers)

Thank you so much for your input. Last night I discovered the Thorn Tree forum from Lonely Planet and came across loads of antimalarials questions. Until I came across some upsetting news about this girl Kinga who hitchhicked her way to Africa from Poland and died of cerebral malaria in Ghana. Check out her website , it's IMPRESSIVE, beautiful and heartbreaking. So thank you guys, I will take my pills. Now the question is, which one? The side effects of Lariam (sp?) are absolutely frightening but the once a week thing is appealing. Anyone taking it? My other options are Malarone, Doxycycline and maybe Primaquine? Any recommandation? I'm calling my travel clinic today but as you can guess they didn't do a great job at recommanding me taking the drug in the first place... Thanks again for your replies :o)


Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · March 07, 2007
First time in India  (5 Answers)

And first time on virtual tourist too. I'm three weeks away from landing in Thiruvananthapuram and I need to know the thruth about mosquitoes! I know it sounds silly but friends & doctors really bug me with the malaria pill when I'm really trying to stay clear of medication. However, I intend to compensate by thoroughfully using the DEET repellent as well as the permethrin spray on my clothes. (If you guys really think its necessary b/c when I asked one of the local men he kind of chuckled and said not to worry about mosquitoes & malaria...). Is there anything I should know about possible medical/health issues? I supposed I can't escape from travellers diarrhea but is it really necessary to bring antibiotics for that purpose? I mean how bad can it be!? Sorry, I had to ask... Also, are iodine tablets necessary or I can just buy bottled water?
From reading VT's postings I gathered the "dress code" for women should be pretty subtle, long-sleeved t-shirts, pants, longs skirts/dresses, avoid sleeveless and jeans and shorts. That's sounds pretty good... As for money (being from Europe I totally lost sense of foreign currencies so forgive me), should I get travellers checks here before I leave (USD or rupee?) and bring a small amount of cash (USD) to change over there? Best to bring my CC also just in case, right? Well that's it for now but I may have more questions later. Thank you so much for your help and don't hesitate to throw any advice or tip for an indian first-timer. Cheers, ROX-SAN
