Travel Tips For India

A trip to India or Nepal can be a perplexing experience for any person who is on his/ her first visit to these countries. There is so much difference of culture and lifestyle in these countries from western world that many visitors find it difficult to adjust for the first few days of their trip to India or Nepal. Following are some of the important tips that can make your holiday tour in India and Nepal hassle-free and quite enjoyable.

The first important thing is the proper Visa. It is very important for entering and staying in India or Nepal. You may encounter beggars at many places but there is no need to encourage them. For money, do not trust strangers that you may come across in streets. Never give bribe to any government servant for getting your job done. If any person asks for money for official work, you can warn him that you would take this matter to police.

A large number of people in India speak English. However, you may find the accent and choice of words different from what you have heard for years in your country. Don’t laugh at anyone after hearing unusual English accent. It may hurt their feelings. It is also a fact that a large number of people in India have English knowledge better than many native English-speaking people.

It is also a good practice to get insured for theft, loss, health, etc., before starting your trip to India. Moreover always carry maps of the cities or states where you are planning to travel in India or Nepal. Reach the railway station at least one hour before scheduled departure time. At airports / railways stations / bus terminus, try to get a pre-paid taxi instead of normal taxi or auto-rickshaw as they may overcharge and sometimes are unsafe to travel. Solo women travelers should avoid visiting places at odd hours. Do not make hurry while checking out from hotels otherwise you might be overcharged. Don’t keep your money in a single pocket. Carry your stuff in a strong suitcase or baggage to avoid mishandling. During sightseeing, hire only a licensed guide. Avoid giving unreasonable tips in hotel. Don’t stay overnight in desert area during monsoon time. Carry any valid school/college identity card if you are a student to avail discount that are offered to students at a number of historical monument.
