India is said to be the country where you go to challenge yourself, known for its bustling mega cities like Mumbai, spicy curries, tourist attractions like the Taj Mahal, and curious people who will stop you on the street to get a photo with you at every chance they get.

Every trip to India involves a great deal of planning because of its sheer size, but the rewards you reap for conquering this amazing country are worth it.

When Is The Best Time To Visit India?

India has a tropical climate, so you need to be cautious when choosing when to visit, as you don't want to be stuck in bad weather for your whole trip. You won’t have to worry about your budget too much though, regardless of the time of year, as the country is generally cheap.

Most people travel to India in the winter, from December until March, as these are the months with bearable weather. It won't be as humid as in the summer, and spells of rain are scarce. Yes, there are plenty of tourists, but because India is a cheap country in general, the prices are affordable.

If you plan on visiting India in the summer season, also referred to as the off-season, prepare for high humidity levels, plenty of thunderstorms, and the possibility of cyclones in some parts of the country. Without a doubt, visiting India during these months is extremely budget-friendly, but you'll have to grin and bear the weather to be there for the least expensive time.

    It’s safe to withdraw money in India, but always be aware of your surroundings. If possible, try to bring some of your home currency with you and exchange it at one of the bureaus following your arrival.
  • There's a joke among travelers that states you haven't been to India unless you've fallen victim to a scam. It's inevitable that it will happen, especially if you're spending a considerable amount of time traveling through the country.
    Common tourist traps include taxis taking tourists longer routes to charge them more, counterfeit money returns, tour guides taking tourists to places to taunt them into giving over money, and the list goes on.
  • India is known for its huge number of celebrations throughout the calendar, resulting in many attractions being closed. Certain regions may have a bank holiday while others won't, so it's important to research beforehand.
    Some notable dates to watch out for include January 1st (New Year's Day), March 8th (Holi), August 15th (Independence Day), and November 12th (Diwali).
