Trip in Nov/Dec Taxi and Sari

Namaste

I am coming to a wedding and for sight seeing to India.

I will arrive at 19th 00:55 and would need a taxi to the hotel.

I still dont have the name of the hotel as it will be booked by a friend

Any really reliable taxi company to collect a female traveller at this time?

Furthermore she and I need need Saris for us.

We are both XXL and we need especially a good taylor to make a proper Choli in big sizes. My friend had one made last year but the taylor had problems with the size and that she want a proper choli and also lined.

I got my salwar custom made last year in Pune and the taylor there was quite good.

Price wise not too high but I still would prefer a real silk sari over any fake silk or georgette etc

Since this is my first trip to Delhi, anyone knows a guide who can show me the sights shown in Rang De Basanti and Fanaa?

After Delhi we take then a train down to Lucknow for the wedding.

Shukriya

T-Shirt with 3/4 Trousers would be good enough at Golden Temple. be prepared to stand in the line for a long period. expect pushing as well. But believe me, it would be worth it. try and do the lowering of the flags ceremony at the Wagah Border. if you have a day spare go to Mcleodganj - current seat of Dalai Lama. You may just get to see him. If you write and request now to the monastery you might even get to meet him personally - people do get lucky, i know a couple who have. but they did write 8-10 months in advance.

i don't know much about lucknow but can suggest or advice about delhi hotels if you need any.

@SuneetSK Thanks

Amritsar and the Flag ceremony are already fixed same with hotel in Delhi.

It was much easier to find a good accommodation in Delhi then in Mumbai where I looked quite for some time. I will just wait which hotel the bride´s parents chose.

I dont have time for Mcledoganj and for many other things.

So must return soon then.

For Sarees, check Nalli in south extension 1 for silk sarees, they can help you to get the blouse ( choli) stitched as well. I guess the rest information you already have. Enjoy!
