You should travel to India from October to March. Do not come here in the summer because the weather is very hot. Summer is always 44-celsius degree. It is impossible for you to go out or eat out.
In addition, remember to bring mosquito repellant because on the bus and in the atmosphere, there are a lot of mosquitoes. We take the bus from New Delhi to Rishikesh where has many mosquitoes on the bus. Besides, the area near the river also has many mosquitoes.


Take Auto/ Rickshaw

You remember bargain price. You can also book Ola or Uber. Even when you do not book the car, you should see the price to pay a reasonable price for the driver. Drivers usually ask a higher price, so we pretended to say we had booked the car through Ola. One time, we bargained the price from Journey’s Place to the hostel is 150 rupees / 2 people, after that the driver claimed 150 rupees per person.

Moreover, in India, people go to the left. Buses in the inner city of India are very cheap, usually under 20 rupees per person, so you pay attention when paying. If you give fare collector 50 rupees and he does not return the charge, ask him to pay you the money.

From New Delhi Airport to central Delhi, you should go by metro because of the cheap price. There are airport trains travel from morning till 9 pm. If you are late, you can book Ola or Uber.

Book A Train Ticket

The auto/rickshaw drivers will move if there have enough six passengers in his vehicle. You should take the same car for the cheap price, instead of running a single car.

Booking bus online via website, you remember to read the review before booking offline.
