How should I dress when traveling in India?

It is best to be conservative so cover up and dress in light, loose clothing. You can buy cheap and colorful Indian clothes once you get there. If you are traveling in the Winter months, do note Delhi and Agra can be quite cold (temperature can dip to the mid 40’s). So do bring clothing accordingly.

When is the best time to travel in North India?

The best time to travel in North India is during the Autumn, winter and Spring months – October through April. Note, December and January can be a bit chilly. Late April through September are Summer and Monsoon and it’s best to avoid travel during these months.

Are ATM's available? Can I use my credit card?

Yes, ATM’s are widely available in all cities and towns of India. And most vendors will accept credit cards. There are also other forms of payment.

What are some of the essentials I should pack?

While traveling in India, things will not always go according to plan. So be patient. Here are some items you could include in your pack:

  • Charcoal Tablet/Electrolytes: To deal with diarrhoea and the famed ” Delhi Belly”.
  • Toilet paper/Wet wipes: Easily available anywhere in India.
  • Ear plugs: Good to have, especially if you are sensitive to noise. India can be noisy.
  • Insect repellent: Very important for mosquitoes and other bugs.
  • Sunscreen: The sun is quite bright. You do need to take precautions to avoid adverse effects on your skin.

Is India safe to travel?

YES. As long as you apply the same level of carefulness as you would in any other large city. Petty theft and pick-pocketing is prevalent in some places and you must always be aware of your belongings. 

As far as safety for women, India is generally safe. Women may experience unwanted attention from men. Dressing conservatively helps. And it is highly recommended not to travel or arrive at a destination late at night. Especially if you are traveling alone.

What kind of food should I expect?

Indian food is SPICY; especially for those who have a bland palate. Spicy does not necessarily mean chilli spicy, but it also means the use of spices such as ginger, cumin, coriander, turmeric etc. That said, a wide variety of world cuisine is available. So you could choose what you want to eat.
