India truly hits all your senses with its incredible landscapes, chaotic sounds and rich aromas. I’ve been fortunate to visit India three times since 2014, with my second visit lasting six months – the longest I’ve ever stayed in a foreign place.
My trips to India were mainly focused on teaching English to deaf children and adults around Delhi, Chandigarh, and Dehradun. My pupils included locals of various backgrounds – from impoverished children and adults in a rural village near Rishikesh, to wealthy kids in their sprawling homes in the Punjab.
As well as wandering around the tourist spots of Delhi, Agra, and Gurgaon, I’ve ventured to the north and explored places like Dehradun, Rishikesh and Haridwar on the edge of the Himalayas, Chandigarh, Patiala and Amritsar to the north-west (including the border with Pakistan), countrysides of Andhra Pradesh in the east, and down south – I’ve been to Goa, Hyderabad, Ooty, and Coimbatore.
They say once you’ve experienced the rawness of India, everywhere else in the world is easy. My guides below provide valuable tips for foreigners considering a trip to India for the first time (or second time), how to navigate this vast and diverse country, and important details you need to know to stay safe and avoid getting sick.
