India - Rail Tours and Traveller's Notes

One of the best pieces of advice when visiting India on a rail tour is to take a cheap pair of sandals. Many of India's temples will only allow visitors to pass through them barefoot and having a pair of slip-on sandals saves time and effort.

Indian markets have a thriving bargaining culture. When negotiating with a street merchant never accept the first price you are offered. This could be ten or even twenty times the price they will settle for.
