Indian Customs and etiquette The Indian gesture of welcome is to fold the hands together and bow the head. Indian women are not used to shaking hands but men shake hands like people in most countries. In particular, it should be noted that Indians believe that the left hand is unclean, so do not hand things such as business cards to Indians with your left hand. If invited to an Indian home, do not enter the host's kitchen to avoid being seen as disrespectful.


There are 18 official languages in India, and as many as 1,600 minority languages. As a result of this encouragement, Hindi is widely spoken in New Delhi and northern India, but not so much in areas where Dravidian is widely spoken. Speaking to tourists, English can cope with most occasions.

The weather in New Delhi in summer is very hot, but the humidity is less than in places like Mumbai. Summer is expected to reach 45 degrees Celsius at times, with May and June being the warmest months. The whole of June and early July are also the wettest months, which can make people feel uncomfortable when the humidity is high. Winter runs from the end of October to the end of February, and the climate is dry and cold, with lows reaching 3 degrees Celsius in December and January, but cashmere sweaters are enough to cope. The best time to visit New Delhi is from October to March.


Smoking is banned in public places, public transport and government offices, and in cinemas and theatres in Delhi. Most wine and meals have separate smoking areas.


Photography Photography is prohibited in airports, military areas and other signage areas, and tourists should pay attention to the signs written in various languages around them before pressing the shutter to confirm that it is OK to take photos, so as not to cause unnecessary trouble.


Alcohol is prohibited on most sex and some local festivals, and is also a prohibition Day in New Delhi. Most of the famous brands of alcohol can be found in New Delhi's merchants, and the Delhi and Delhi Chambers of Commerce have set up special outlets for the sale of imported products. Large meals and some restaurants are exempt from the prohibition Day.


Summer visitors to New Delhi must pay attention to drinking water hygiene, but also beware of mosquitoes flying around, because they are an important transmitter of malaria, although the authorities have taken many measures to eliminate mosquitoes, bringing medicine such as mosquito repellent is still a good idea.


Water and electricity Delhi can experience water shortage problems in the summer, and the situation is better in the winter. There are vendors selling ice water on carts everywhere, especially near the bus stops. Most of them sell cold drinking water, and the sanitation condition is also good. But the most reliable source of drinking water is bottled mineral water sold in regular stores, and the voltage in India is 200 volts. Power outages during peak hours are common during the hottest months of summer, but most hotels and restaurants are equipped with independent systems, so power outages are less frequent India Voltage (Volt) 115/230/240v India Power sockets: European standard (2 or 3 hole cylindrical). Guests need to bring their own adapters (usually sold in supermarkets)
