Short trip to India, Agra, Delhi, Mumbai and Goa (maybe). What should I take other than the usual?
Planning to tour Agra, Delhi, Mumbai in February/March 2010 - about 3 weeks. No shopping, actually trying to keep away from shopping malls, department stores etc and just sightsee. And I am not really roughin it out, will use good hotels most of the time. But would like to know what I should pack up other than the usual stuff - things hard to get there that you'd wish you had with you?
You'll find you can get most things pretty easily in India so I wouldn't worry, especially if a lot of your time is in Delhi and Mumbai which are big cities. All I would suggest is taking some effective deet-based insect repellent for the mosquitoes, and if you run out, I found that 'Good Knight' spray, which you can get in some places, though not all, works quite well. A good torch is always really useful in India as power cuts are frequent and can happen at any time. 😊
Hello Sunny 😊
To add to Debbies list:
Loose, light clothes
A couple of pairs of sandles or flip flops
A hat to keep the sun off you
A small, basic medical kit
Needle and thread, for buttons that fall out etc.
That much should be enough, until you get to know where to buy things. Most things are available in cities.
well ! i suggest you not to burden ur self with un wanted load. U r planning for a holiday so keep it up that way. Try to come in a relaxed frmae of mind cause u get almost everything u would want accept ur own girl friend.
Any help required in Goa let me know.
sorry fot the typo errors : "Frame" and "Except". I am trying to be good at it just lezarning
Yeah, I go with Rajs advice too. Travel light, and only take things that you absolutely need. I think suncream (if you are light skinned) and mosquito repellant are the only things that you cant do without when you get there. Everything else can wait to be bought at your convenience.
Not sure I am able to offer advice being a novice myself, but one tip I always hear from people is to lay out everything you want to take, then half it.
Less is more...
