10 Things NOT to do in India

10 Apr

India is a fun place to travel but there are certain do’s and don’ts.

  1. Don’t drink tap water. Drink only bottled water. And most important, watch out for the ice in drinks.
  2. Don’t drink milk. Most of the time the milk is mixed with tap water and ice. Make sure you get your coffee black.
  3. Eat at good restaurants. A place with a good reputation and firm business usually knows the value of good hygiene. It’s not a good idea to eat street food as the locals, they can handle it.
  4. Avoid obstinate vendors and taxis at airport, stations, bus stand who offer to help you find your hotel.
  5. Travel light. Don’t bring excessive luggage. If you over pack, it will be a hassle and frustrating.
  6. Use licensed guides for sightseeing.
  7. Shorts are a big no-no for a tourists. It’s better to wear long pants.
  8. Wash/sanitize your hands regularly.
  9. Don’t act out a sexual fantasy in public.
  10. Don’t wear shoes inside religious places.
