Travel tips for India - Do's and Don'ts

A well-planned travel is not only blissful but lingers fresh in the memory for a long time. One obviously would love a hassle-free travel, as it is meant for rest and enjoyment and above all to escape from the daily ordeal of life. If on a travel too, one finds oneself running from pillar to post and making last-minute arrangements, one would love to forget the holiday and the horrifying memories associated with it. India is a tough country, in terms of temperament and terrain. Before venturing on a sojourn to India, one needs to follow some simple guidelines to make the stay a pleasant one. Follow the tips in earnest and put your best foot forth and come to India with a desire, and India promises that you will leave the land with an ardent wish to come back again.

India Travel - Do's and Don'ts Follow these do's and don'ts while you are traveling in India and you will remain out of any trouble hopefully.

Language - Make others understand what you are saying, speak slowly and repeat the things. Chances are that whatever you are saying is being misunderstood due to the differences in accent.

Permission for Photography - Take the necessary permissions and permits before photographing any government property, especially railways and bridges.

Beware - Never reply to a 'hello' of a common and never catch the eye of a professional beggar. Your simulated brutal indifference saves you energy and them time. No one pesters a hard touch when there are other tourists around. 

Bargaining - Try to buy goods and articles from standard and good shops OR company showrooms OR Government shops. You can't be sure of quality even if you bargain heavily.

Photography - Never buy camera film except from a recognized dealer. For places on higher altitude try using manual Indian cameras, as sophisticated automatic cameras might not be able to withstand extreme climates.

Beware of Dogs - Always give wide berth to the dogs that cross your path. The alternative may be two weeks of painful injections. Don't run away or show fear to a stray dog or monkey, hold your ground and they will back off.

Complaints - Always register a complaint or suggest and your voice would be heard. In India, you will find complaint registers everywhere and they seem to work.
