Hello everyone, I just wanted to talk about some precautions to take if traveling to India for the first time. I did some research and wanted to offer some more safety guidelines to follow when traveling to India. I mean in no way to give a bad name to the country with this post, just want to offer some helpful advice for those who are considering traveling there for a business trip or for a vacation. First off, only drink bottled water. It's also a good idea to use bottled water when cleaning your teeth as well. There have been many cases of Westerners getting intestinal diseases from drinking the unfiltered tap water that non-native people are not used to. Some backpackers have claimed to drink tap water and experience no effects, which is curious, but I guess tolerance is everything. Second thing I found is try to Avoid driving. From research I've done on the internet, and stories I've heard from close friends and colleagues, there is a very low standard of driving safety especially in the big crowded cities. The road code is very hard to comprehend, and you will encounter cars, trailers, and even livestock going any which way on the roads. There are also no lanes to be found apparently. And finally, avoid the monkeys! Apparently India has a problem with mischievous monkeys in many places. Everywhere from jungles, to forts, and temples. However, monkeys in the jungles are not used to interactions with humans and therefore have less of a chance of harming you. Monkeys that have been fed by humans have more of a chance of becoming aggressive, especially when you run out of food, so be very careful. These are the three biggest precautions I know of from what I've looked into. Hope this helps for anyone visiting anytime soon.
