Before you travel to India you must have an idea about it. If you are from America or Europe or Africa, all of the places in India will be new to you. More importantly, the culture here is entirely different. So, our recommendation to you is that you read, you watch, you learn, and you know about your desired destination. Well, the best way to know about a place that you are visiting is through Youtube. You can already visit the places on video while making your plans and this will accustom you to the environment, culture, and socioeconomic culture.
Another important thing is your budget. One of the best things about traveling around India is that You have to have a clear idea about the cost of your entire travel. To avoid the unavoidable circumstances, you must have enough cash with you that will help you to get through the entire travel and allow you to have enough cash for emergencies. Well, let us warn you that there have been many reports of foreigners being scammed in India. So, being on the safe side is always a good idea. The currency here is INR or Indian rupee. Be very gentle about their size and shapes as things can be very confusing.
Papers are also very important. You have to have the proper documents and permissions with you. Traveling in some particular areas in India may require more than your visa and passport. If the area is border-sensitive or army-controlled then you may require special permissions sometimes. Being a foreigner, you will likely get and deserve an exceptional treatment here. Hence, your safety can also be the Indian government’s concern in some cases as well. Sometimes you might be needing documents that you never had thought of.
Time is another important factor. As traveling around India is cheaper, people often tend to lengthen their stay. That’s why they end up spending from 10 days to a You have to particularly know the length of your travel and more or less everything depends on this factor. Depending on the time you have in your hand, you will be deciding the spots that you will be able to see, and that will decide the amount of money you will end up spending. However, if you are traveling to India, we recommend you have at least a 15-day long trip.
Transportation is a key factor while traveling. If you can drive then you must get an international driving license. The best means of inter-city transportation in India is the Indian Railway that has a huge network. You can also take flights in between the major cities and the ticket fairs are also very reasonable if purchased long before the journey.
The places you will be crashing in nights throughout your travel is not negligible. It will always be a tug of war between cost and comfort. Hotels are also cheaper. Indians are known for their hospitability. A 100$ hotel room can be considered fairly luxurious in a country where the per night hotel cost can be as low as 15 USD. So, we think that you will not be facing any issues here. However, the top suggestion from our side is that you have to do a lot off haggling.
One thing that we won’t be able to imagine our life without is food. The food here is spicy. Have your stomach prepared prior to your India trip. Otherwise, you will often be ending up with an irritated bowel. And if you are already a fan of spicy food then you are headed towards the ultimate food heaven. Do try their exotic street food culture. You will absolutely love it. Take note that, the taste of food can differ from states to states.
We know you are traveling so that you can get lost in our own minds. However, do not forget that ‘communication’ is as important as enjoyment. You can easily get an Indian SIM card with a photocopy of a passport. The SIM is 4G and may come with free daily internet. Entire India is now under cellular coverage but be mindful about remotest places. Always notify your family about your destinations.
While you are in India, language can become an issue. Language is the medium through which we convey our messages to others. However, most modern city dwellers in India may have the rational capacity to understand what you are saying in English and most of the educated Indians will at least try to speak in English in their weird accent. However, you will not have too much of an issue in traveling around without the help of a local guide as English is the official language of India and most educated Indians have fairly good command over the language.
This is the best place for souvenir shopping! We all love to shop. At least, we all have to buy things. In India, everything other than the branded stuff is cheap especially, cloths. Also, there is a lot of traditional stuff here that you can purchase as commodities. Don’t miss them out.
Be respectful to the laws, customs, and cultures of the place that you in. Indian laws share a lot of relevance to British laws. Also, there are some other critical things that you need to be mindful of.
Most importantly, the last question that you should ask yourself is, “Why do you love to travel in India?” You will know the answer once you talk to someone who has been to India.
