Things to Know before coming to India.Answer:
When to travel
The climate can broadly be described as tropical, with the exception of the Himalaya.
The Subcontinent has four seasons:
Winter - from December to February
Summer - from March to June
Monsoon - from July to September
Autumn - October and November
The best time to travel is between September and April
The units of Indian currency are the rupee and the paisa.
(100 paisa=1 rupee)
Visitors may bring up to $8,000 US dollars into India. Visitors may not bring or take out any Indian currency, except as travellers cheques.
At all international airports, a bureau de change is available as you leave customs. You can change money here. Many hotels offer foreign exchange facilities, at a rate on a par quoted by the banks. ATM machines are widely available in cities.
American Express, MasterCard, Diners Club and Visa are widely accepted. It is sometimes necessary to have cash (rupees) in hand for smaller hotels, lodges and camps. When making a credit card transaction be sure that slips are completed and validated in your presence.
India is 5 hours 30 minutes ahead of Greenwich Mean Time.
The standard is 220/240 volts. 50 Hz. Adaptors for electrical gadgets and laptops must be carried to protect equipment from voltage fluctuations. Triple and double round pin plugs are very useful, though the higher end hotels provide these. If you are travelling off the beaten track a small torch can be useful in temples etc. Power cuts in India are still frequent and though the luxury hotels have back up generators, homestays and budget hotels may not.
India remains conservative. We recommend that women should keep covered. Low cut T shirts and strappy tops are not acceptable, except on the beach. Shorts and bathing costumes are only acceptable by pools and on the beach. We advise women to carry a cotton shawl for temples and mosques.
It is necessary to remove your shoes when visiting temples and mosques, so a spare pair of socks is useful, as is a hat to protect against the sun.
We are happy to advise further on this, especially if you are visiting a mountain region where special warm clothing is absolutely essential.
