Delhi Dangers….. well cautions

Delhi is a fabulous city and one of the best lad our tourist cities in India.

I love Delhi due to my wonderful friends there and the homestays I’ve had over the years. Their hospitality and generosity never ceases to amaze me.

However, it also has quite a rep for being quite rough and dangerous. Ask any Delhite and they will tell you never (especially as a woman) to travel alone at night. The city is recognised as dangerous for locals and for foreigners visiting the city. I’ve never personally had any trouble there and really dislike this reputation this wonderful city has now obtained. But warnings should be taken and caution should be observed.

Also beware in Delhi of the famous Delhi Belly. It struck me 3 times on my most recent trip. The only answer….. Imodium! Plenty of it! And sleep and water.
