Delhi Vs Mumbai - What To Expect From Each For A Traveller

While both Mumbai and Delhi are pretty famous among tourists, they are as different as one can imagine them to be. One is the country’s very capital and the other the commercial capital. One is called the heart of India while the other the soul. Both have different cultures, different languages, different people and different appeals for the travellers. Listed below are some stark differences we could identify on the basis of the following: Culture & PeopleTo look at the cultural differences between these two metro cities, we would like to point out that Delhi was in the ancient times the Mughal capital and Mumbai the Maratha capital. Since then, Delhi is built like a circle and Mumbai like a grid.Whereas in today’s times, decorum is more of a sight in Mumbai only as Delhi is a little too careless about that and Mumbai is a little easy on women, but Delhi in that context has let people down. Mumbai can easily be in today’s time be inferred safer than Delhi in this aspect. In another aspect; Delhi has one of the finest colleges in the country and Mumbai; bollywood and dreams to sell.Talking about people; people in Mumbai are a little more tourist friendly than Delhi.Both the cities though, are pretty similar when you compare the hustle bustle.An extra tip - Do not miss a holi in delhi and a ganesh chaturthi in Mumbai! Time Mumbai as per most travelers requires around 2-3 days if you want to do only the touristy stuff. One can stay longer if one looks forward to exploring local markets, going to cafes, watching local cinema or go on to a few weekend getaways. Delhi requires only 2 days as per most travellers as people head to Agra next immediately but that too only covers the architecture and old monuments. To explore the heart of Delhi, one can visit cafes, bars, streets, old markets, take a metro ride, visit Delhi haat and that would take more than 2 days for sure.

How to avoid International Data Roaming Charges outside of the UK?

Imagine having no internet while taking phone overseas for 30 days when travelling in India? None. Nil. Wouldn’t that just disrupt life for you? Obviously, it will unless you are a monk reading this. But you would say that we can have free data abroad from the internet on the phone because our service provider gives us mobile phone data that works abroad. Now, here’s the trouble! When you pay for these internet charges at your home country, you incur charges that are fixed. But when you step outside of your state and especially of your country, these charges become nebulous and start eating your pocket. This is probably where you ask the question ‘What is Data Roaming’?Data Roaming is the usage of your data service when you step outside of the boundaries of your telecom operator’s network coverage area. It is charged both domestically and internationally. International data roaming charges or global roaming charges are incurred because your network operator has a tie up with other network operators that give you services on their behalf and hence the roaming tariff. How Does Data Roaming Work?Once you are outside your telecom operator’s network coverage area; any action that involves the usage of your phone data (when not using any WiFi) will incur charges. These charges are incurred as your telecom operator ties up with international telecom operators to facilitate your activity outside your home network operators’ area and hence that costs more. They are technically referred to as interconnect charges. So, whether it is sending that mail you started to write last night or trying to look for navigation, you will be charged for everything. Your phones have settings to turn data roaming service off but only android phones give you reminder/ warning to do that when you step outside the network. Therefore; it is either that you can’t have overseas data or you just pay heavily to have it.

8 Tips To Keep In Mind While Travelling to The Incredible Northeast of India

The northeast India is slowly becoming a favourite part to take trips to for the locals and the international travellers. It is fresh, beautiful and less populated. Even though it is becoming pretty popular among the tourists, it still has people concerned about safety. We are still to decide how tourist friendly the northeast is and therefore; here are some tips that we want you to keep in mind while you travel there. You may need special permits ( for example; the Protection Area Permit) and other documents to travel there. An Indian visa is obviously a must but do your research before you take the step. There are eight states, several districts and villages to cover, therefore, plan a tour with good amount of time in hand. A well planned trip is a better way to go here. Read and study about the locals, tribes, food and culture beforehand. You wouldn’t want to offend anyone, right? This will also let you have a better interactive experience. Be prepared for the rains. The northeast receives a decent amount of rainfall especially during monsoons. Best travel time is between October and April. Get yourself hotels and hostels pre booked as this area still has a developing hospitality sector. One is suggested to carry multiple simcards as the landscapes don’t permit very good connection. Immerse yourself in a natural lifestyle there and do not expect amazing internet access. You should even be prepared to lose it every now and then. Keep saved the emergency contacts at all times. And lastly; keep expecting the unexpected!
