India is a huge and incredibly diverse and there is a lot to explore which is not possible to explore in a single trip. It is advisable to visit India bit- by- bit. The first-timers start with the “Golden Triangle” that include Delhi, Agra and Jaipur or follow your interest. If you want to experience Royal History and culture, head to Rajasthan; for spirituality visit Varanasi, for an Ayurvedic massage and serene backwaters, Kerala; for wildlife enthusiastic, explore the jungle of Central India; for trekking and adventure, Himachal Pradesh.
India has a four primary season’s summer, winter, monsoon and post-monsoon. Each region has different climatic condition so there is always an opportunity to visit India somewhere, no matter the time of year. Extreme north region such as Leh – Ladhak and hill station like Darjeeling, Manali, Shimla can be visited in summer. The popular tourist destination like Rajasthan, Kerala, Tamilnadu, Agra and Varanasi can be best enjoyed in the winter during the month of October to March.
To ensure good health and hygiene avoid tap water, street food, peeled salads and fruits. Always prefer sealed bottled water and ask for less oily and less spicy food. Try to take curd with your all meals as it is a natural aid to digestion and is very supportive in tempering the spicy food.
With relatively modest culture, dressing in descent attires is the best way to avoid any kind of unwanted attention. Women are suggested to avoid the shorts or short skirts and the tank tops. In general, it is best to have nothing too revealing or with open back or front with spaghetti straps. They can wear them in the metro cities like Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi but in small cities and towns and in traditional states such as Rajasthan or Punjab wearing them is not a good idea. They can roam around in t-shirts and normally fitted trousers or can go with the comfortable and free sized local outfit “Salwar Kameez”. All of these are available throughout the country at a very reasonable price.
Generally, international flights arrive late night or early morning in India, it is advisable to get a pickup from Airport by the hotel through which you have booked your accommodation. If you have not booked the hotel for your stay then hire a taxi from a prepaid taxi booth. If you choose to travel on local transport always insist on paying by the meter or settle fare before you enter the vehicle.
Use travel cards, debit cards, credit cards and money wallets for transaction while travelling in India. You can exchange money at the Airport, banks or travel companies. You can also withdraw cash from ATM which quite easy to find in cities but hard to find in rural areas. So always get a reasonable amount of cash. Remember for each withdrawal there is certain charges levied by your bank so check beforehand.
Indian society is completely different from the western world. So adjust your expectations. The free behaviour, too much friendliness with unknown men and late night outing is not a good idea for women.
It is also suggested to behave confident and firm instead of being polite and warm with the people. They may be strangers, roadside vendors, beggars and many others who can use your politeness against you.
Don’t go to the dark streets and unknown places alone. It is always good to have your tourist guide or a local along with you who can assist and safeguard your wellness.
Always keep your mobile phone with you. You might be an emergency or in a situation where you are near someone who requires help. Make a note for these numbers in your phone.
