TRAVEL tips



GENERAL:

Please avoid plastic bags, polythene, disposable plates / cups anywhere. Our heritage and ecology is to be passed on to the upcoming generations to enjoy.

Don't litter our Mother Earth with non-biodegradable stuff...

Respect the emotions of the locals and their beliefs and customs, though your personal ideologies might be different.

Wear your outfit in accordance to the place. For temple tours wear traditional outfits, though you’re regular, personal style might be different.
  
Ladies - Invest on a couple of stoles in basic colors that go with every other outfit - black, white, brown should do. A simple stole around your neck, covering your chest, will save you from unwanted attention.

* Cover your head with a cloth in North Indian Temples, while keep it open in South Indian Temples. Footwear is not allowed inside any temple. There would be a footwear stand outside on some temples. At remote temples, leave it outside near some flower selling lady and give her something.

* Give generously to the priest when you venture to lesser known temples. That's not just to help the priest, it'll encourage them not to leave the temple to the mercy of fate.

* The temples of Kerala give entry only if women are clad in saree, or pavada/davani or mundu and to men in veshti

* Those who write on temple walls, esp. their names along with their lovers' to, so called 'immortalize their love', or just any damn thing, are stupid, and senseless.

* Do not wear strong perfumes..

* Leave only footprints, take only photographs

*Always keep sufficient water with you. Avoid junk food while travelling. Keep biscuits, bread, jam, fruits with you.

* Don't eat any fruits that you see. Some might look like the regular fruits in appearance, but might be a   wilder variety of the regular ones and might give some allergies.




Best use car. van either own or from a reliable travel agencies.

Trains and buses both are in great frequency.

For relatively shorter distances, mini buses and share autos

Do not opt for an auto unless you have a friend in that locality who can guide you on the prevailing auto rates in that route.

Fill the fuel tank when half volume exhausted.

Check the wheel pressure (often), spare wheel and jack

Keep care documents in the dashboard ie RC, Insurance, Driving license, etcs with you.
