Namaste friends! I need some guidance with my intinerary please.
I am sooo sooo happy to be in India. I am in chennai currently, departing for vallore today 1/30/12 for a spiritual/volunteer journey to Sri narayani peedam in vellore with a group of friends. We finish our time in vellore on 2/8/12.
My flight home to US returns from chennai 2/11/12 at 0:15 am. So I have 8,9 10 days free. I would like to see Madurai and Thanjavur and prefer to fly/hire a driver and avoid the train with my giant (american style :)) suitcase and being a solo female traveler for these days.
Which city do I see first? Madurai or thanjavur? And what is the best/easiest way to travel between vellore/chennai> to madurai and thsnjavur?
I must return to chennai by evening of Friday, feb 10 to catch my flight home.
I see great reviews on the hotel ideal river in thanjavur and would like to stay there at least one night. And one night in Madurai.
I am so excited for these sites and look forward to your responses as soon as possible. :)
