When travelling away from home, often questions like where to stay, what to eat, what to wear and so on cloud the mind. Let's make these questions disappear from your head when you travel to Tanjore.

  • Travel

In case you have too many places on your 'to-see list', pick a hotel in the city itself and not on the outskirts. You'll have to spend less time travelling around and more time to explore the place. Within Tanjore, you have enough and more travel options – auto rickshaw, cycle rickshaw or cab facility. Just get in touch with the travel desk at your hotel. Not only will they help you plan your trip but will also provide for travel arrangements. And finally, bargain and negotiate the fare before travelling. You don't want to spoil a holiday trying to argue with local drivers.

  • Clothing

Summers (March to May) in Tanjore are too hot with temperatures soaring up to 40 degrees. It is tiring travelling around this time. But in case you wish to travel carry light and comfortable clothing. The monsoon (June to September) bring in a whiff of comforting rain. The rains aren't too heavy but an umbrella could come handy. Then comes the winter season (December to February). It's pleasant in Tanjore and the best time for a reposeful holiday. Comfortable clothing are a must while travelling no matter what the season is and a pair of sneakers would be helping for all the walking around.

  • Stay

From luxurious cottages to good budget hotels, Tanjore has a variety of options for you to pick. When choosing a hotel be keep your budget and amenities at the top of your list. And, be mindful of the location you pick for your hotel. A place in the outskirts would make you travel too much. One more thing, book in advance and avoid hunting for a hotel once you are already at the destination.

  • Eating

When in Tanjore, eat like a South Indian. Although Tanjore is loaded with eating options, you must try out the traditional vegetarian thali and indulge in local delicacies of dosas,vadas, payasam, uthappams and vasantha neer. Also, try your hand at food served on the banana leaf for a traditional experience. Pick a restaurant that has more local people in it. You can always trust their judgement on local food!

So travel safe, dress well, eat your heart out and have the holiday of your lifetime!
