Let’s face it. India is surely a bit infamous especially in the matters of women safety. In all truth, though, with a little bit of carefulness, your trip to India can be nothing else but happiness and great memories. So, don’t let the paranoia overcome you from a great travelling stint in India. India is indeed Incredible and the rewards certainly outweigh the challenge! Here is a small checklist to give thought to:
Embrace the culture but be culturally aware! India is so diverse that what might be a no big deal in Delhi can become a big one, let’s say in Rajasthan.
Be confident while going to new places and talking to people.
Be friendly to people, but just like back home, don’t be too friendly to strangers. As said earlier, use your intuitive thoughts.
Do not wander alone in the night! Enough said.
Dress conservatively. Merging into the local crowd using local dressing style can come really handy in avoiding unnecessary attention.
Preferably use a local number while in India for better connectivity. Also, keep a small diary with numbers of authorities.0
