    Hi, welcome to the forum! Here are are some tips I can give you:
    • When you're introduced to a girl, don't shake her hand unless she initiates it, that's the custom in India.
    • Don't trust strangers so much in India especially when it comes to money matters. This one's a basic even for other countries.
    • Don't eat so much street foods because your digestive system might not be accustomed to it.
    • Do bring your own bottled water or buy only from reputable stores.
    • Do ask your hotel for pre-booked taxis or car services when you're going out in the dark.
    • Don't enter a temple with your shoes on and make sure you're dressed appropriately for the place.
    • Always ask if it's okay to take pictures or take a look around for signages that say so.
    That's about it. I'm sure others can share more about this topic. Good luck and happy travelling!

    Welcome to India.

    It makes little difference from where our visitors arrive. You only need to have the zest to enjoy what India is offering.
    India is just like any other country and every visitor who comes here surely knows what is expected of him
    India is known for its hospitality which you must enjoy.
    -As is the case with any other country we do have pickpockets here and you should be alert about them.
    -Indian food is quite spicy. Before ordering you should choose carefully
    -Beware of beggars. We still have them
    -Let your whereabouts be known to your hotel Admin
