sridharan2013's City Tips

  • Plan your trip during November to Feb for best weather.
  • Carry umbrella for each member of the family if trip planned during June to September.
  • The best is to hire a car with driver on a day basis so as to cover maximum places with convenience. Plan trip during weekend for lesser traffic.
