Meals, and hygiene

In general, Indian cuisine is not suitable for other countries’ tastes, quite salty, using a lot of grease, spicy spices. Beef and pork are not used in dishes because cows are sacred animals of Hinduism and pigs are considered dirty animals according to Islamic beliefs. The staple food is whole grains and some chicken.

Every street in India is selling junk food, fruits and vegetables along with dirt and flies, looks unhygienic and easily causes abdominal pain. If you want to enjoy street food, it is best to choose fruits with shells and wash them before eating.

Bottled water should be used when traveling to tourist destinations. If you buy bottled water, you need to check that the bottle is intact. You can also drink water from pumps like locals but it takes time to get used to it. Do not drink water from skylights, ponds or water from filters without filters.

Most Indians use their hands to eat rice. If you’re concerned about hygiene, bring a pair of chopsticks from home.

There are no public toilets for women on the street, only toilets for men, where people simply stand face to face on the wall.

Indian people, after using the toilet, will wash water instead of using paper, so toilet paper is not popularly sold. It is essential to bring hand wash water, wet towels and toilet paper.

Do not accept food and drinks from new acquaintances. There have been a number of incidents of drugging visitors to rob or rob.
