India is fast gaining popularity as a leading tourist destination in the world. The country has long been in the shadows, despite having some of the most beautiful offerings for all types of travellers. Here are a few tips you should always have at your fingertips, to help you make the most out of this emerging destination.

Plan Ahead

Don’t just wake up and travel to India. Well, there is always the thrill of a random trip, but it might prevent you from enjoying the best of India. Remember, India is not just a tiny country, that you can enjoy in one visit.

Take the time to read about India, and understand its different offerings; then decide which ones suit you. Do you, for instance, intend to go on a religious trip, a wild party adventure, or find a unique interaction with nature? India offers all these things.

Take the time to find out about the current weather in the area you plan to visit and pack accordingly.

Map a Route

This is a general travel tip, but even more applicable in a vast country like India. Once you have picked the places, you want to visit, get a map and select the smoothest route to get through this. This helps you avoid back and forth travel, that eats up your time, and prevents you from making the most of your trip.

Stay Alert

As much as India is a safe country with no significant terrorist threats, it has its own small insecurities. Some fraudsters will try to overcharge or scam you, especially when they realise you are new to the area. Keep your guard up.

Collect Momentos

Whatever you do, collect physical memories. It hurts to remember a great trip from afar, and have nothing to show for it. Always keep your camera ready to capture memories. Do not be afraid to spend your money on souvenirs that you can take home.
