What safety issues should I consider while in India?

Here are some of the safety measures you should take while traveling to India:

  • If you are a female solo traveler traveling locally in trains, consider entering the women’s compartment.
  • Be aware when you are in a very crowded place and keep your belongings very close to you.
  • Don’t go out alone at night.
  • Don’t ever trust strangers, not even the youngsters.
  • Don’t travel carrying a lot of cash with you.
  • Make backup copies of all you important documents and keep it safely and separately, away from the original copies.
  • Learn to say ‘no’ firmly, without being rude – it is the easiest way to get out of unwanted situations.
  • Note down the emergency phone numbers, in case you need them.
  • Be mindful of local sentiments – Indians get offended too easily.
  • Be careful on the roads – people are impatient and always in a hurry while drivers are infamous for the lack of traffic sense.
  • Watch what you eat – it is important to take care of your health as well.
