sure to carry medication with you. Sunscreen is another must-have.

Water in India
While traveling to India, you must stay physically fit and healthy to have the best travel experience. For this, you need to be very caution and conscious about what you drink and eat. As you must be very aware of the fact that most of the diseases are transmitted through water, therefore you must drink only safe water. Never drink tap water for it is very harmful for your health. You must purchase bottled/branded mineral water from reputed shops. Prior to purchasing mineral water bottles, always check the seal cap, labels and expiry date. Reputed hotels and restaurants provide good drinking water. You must strictly avoid drinking water from roadside carts and vendors. If you are travelling in rural areas, you may not get to drink safe water. In such case, it is very advisable to carry with you iodine tablets or solution. On mixing the iodine tablets or solution with water in right proportion, you get the best drinking water. But there are shops, guest houses, lodges and eateries in rural villages that provide boiled and filtered water for drinking. Nevertheless, you must be very aware and cautious about the risks involved with drinking water in India.

Smart Shopping
>Bargaining is the norm in local bazaars selling products without a written price. Resist the urge to buy without comparing prices from shops selling similar stuff.
