1. Dress Accordingly
If you’re exploring a metropolitan city like Delhi, Mumbai or Bangalore, shorts or any other western attire would not be an issue. But in small cities or remote areas, it is best to cover yourself up.
Also, in places like Rajasthan, it will come in handy because scorching sunlight is not at all good for skin.
Avoid eating anything from streets. As famous as the street food of India is, it is not necessarily made with utmost cleanliness. If you wish to have your fill of such food, visit any restaurant. A lot of well-known restaurants serve what you call street food and they ensure certain cleanliness standards while preparing it.
Carrying a hand-sanitizer will definitely be a better option.
Leaving your important documents like passport in the hotel will not be a smart move. Along with that, you should be careful while opting for private cabs.
Ensure that you’re not off track by keeping the map opened.
Hardly anyone goes back to their native land without souvenirs and a bit of shopping. Since language remains a common hurdle for outsiders, they might be cheated into paying a heinous amount if you’re shopping in the local markets.
Therefore, be extra careful while buying clothes and other articles from the market. You might have to brush up your bargaining skills to survive in the alluring markets of India.
You would definitely come across extreme weather conditions during your stay in India.
From snowy mountains in the north region to beaches and plains in the south, you will find yourself in different weather conditions.
Therefore, it is highly recommended to pack as per your itinerary.
