    I have found Indians to be very hospitable and to enjoy tourists coming visit, especially if they are respectful and take a genuine interest in the culture. But it is easy to form stereotypes, especially because they are often based on truth. How do locals view tourists from the different countries? I know that generally, Chinese tourists are not well regarded, and German's can be very particular. The Japanese take a lot of pictures. What are the Indian perspectives of foreigners?

    Most Indians are very hospitable to tourists. While studying in India, I learned to think and behave like a local. I discovered that Indians from all walks of life, from the "fake" beggar and stall owner in a busy marketplace to the executive in a plush office in Delhi, view tourists as economic opportunities that should not be tampered with. There are of course those rare exceptions of politically or socially misguided individuals who see tourists as intruders to their way of life.
