About India

India is a beautiful and endlessly fascinating country that is often challenging and always surprising. Stretched between the golden beaches of the Indian Ocean and the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayan Mountains, it is surrounded by Bhutan and Nepal in the north, separated by the Thar Desert from Pakistan in the west, and Burma in the north-east across forested mountain regions. India presents a dramatic landscape- ranging from tiger-filled jungles to frozen Himalayan deserts, and is home to varied vegetation and climates, ranging from alpine to equatorial.

About New Delhi

New Delhi or Dilli is a lively city reflecting a perfect blend of modernization and traditional architectures. Being a capital city of the Republic India, Delhi is the centre of Government’s legislature and judiciary systems. The influence of religious diversity can be seen in the city along with the cultural impact of the Mughal, the ancient Indian and the British. There are many beautiful gardens in the city, away from pollution and busy city life that provide opportunities to walk leisurely in the midst of greenery. The city reflects two sides of a same coin i.e. Old Delhi and New Delhi. Old Delhi is popular for its ancient culture and monuments along with its overcrowded gastronomical lanes.
Various shopping malls and local markets are there for the locals and the visitors, providing them a wide option to shop in the city. Other options of entertainment are also available in the city such as discotheques, cafes, cinema halls. Wide options for eating out in the city are there as the capital city houses numerous eating outlets and restaurants serving relishing and traditional cuisines. Connaught Place, Lajpat Nagar, South Extension, Sarojini Nagar, Hauz Khas, GK-II and Chandni Chowk are some of the best places for shopping, especially for women. Khari Baoli Market near Chandni Chowk is seen as Asia’s largest wholesale spice market.

Travel Insurance

While travelling in India it is important that you obtain good personal travel insurance from an insurance agent in your country. A suitable policy will include an unlimited amount for medical, hospital and additional health associated costs. Most policies
cover loss of baggage, personal money (usually limited) delay and curtailment. We would also suggest you take a trip cancellation policy, in the unlikely event you have to cancel your trip at the last minute. You should carry your insurance policy with you at all times.

Luggage Allowance

As a general rule Economy Domestic flights offer only 15kg check-in Baggage Allowance. Business Class allows for 25kg or more, and are much more flexible. Please note that extra weight can be purchased at the airport prior to your flight at Check-in, but not prior to this. The approximate cost is INR350 per kg (about US$6per kg).

Money

India’s currency is ‘Rupee’, abbreviated as ‘Rs’. Notes are usually in the denomination of 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 2000. You are not allowed to bring in Indian currency of more than Rs 5000 into the country. The best place to change money is either on arrival at the International airport, at your hotel or any authorized money changer/Banks. ATM’s are largely available across the country. You should retain the receipt you receive from the money changer/ATM machine so you are able to change any left-over rupees at the airport before departures You cannot purchase Indian Rupees outside India (although sometimes in Dubai airport it can be found but this is not guaranteed).

Clothing

India is casual and even in luxury hotels formal attire is not required. For the evenings, smart casual is the dress code and jackets and ties are not needed – though often after a day of sightseeing you may like to ‘change for dinner’, but formal
dressing up is not expected. During the day, it is best to wear cotton clothes that breathe, as the sun is hot at any time of year. During the cooler months in north India (late Nov to mid-Feb), you would need a jacket or a sweater in the early mornings and late evening.
