this october I alongwith my family visited a part of Chhattishgarh. We had a horrible experience with a car rental agency based on Raipur-- MIR corporation whom we booked in advance from Kolkata beforehand.though the payment terms were all inclusive, they started charging for fuel , fooding lodging of the driver from the first day. the driver, chhottu, was worst of the lot, faking no knowledge of roads of his state. he even kept us waiting for 45 minutes on arrival claiming not knowing station car parking area.everyday we had to search our roads and lost 2-3 hours everyday without having any help from him.at that time owner was not available over phone but on return to raipur when we paid as per terms, first on phone then by person he came to our hotel demanding extra money on the plea of non receipt/loss of advance money etc. fortunately we have copies of mails with us which saved the situation. we have even have to threat them by trying to call police .They are just ruined the trip. Please avoid this agency if u want to have a peaceful holiday.
another point is about hotel johar of chhattishgarh tourism at raipur. the rooms are claustrophoebic and there is not even a towel rod in the bathroom.
The state is very beautiful . our stay at Gangrel and Chitrakot was too calmly and satisfactory to recommend. we stayed at state tourism resorts at excellent locations with very helping staff.I specially thank Mr. mukherjee of Gangrel and Mr. Kamalesh of Chitrakot for their wise advises.Also thanks Sattu of Ganrel for his memorable boat trip.
