For the brave and adventurous, backpacking India can bring many rewards. We spent 3.5 months exploring this crazy, colourful country – it was a serious love/hate relationship.
Hostels in India are great for budget travellers: basic, no frills and affordable.
Our top tip: make sure you know the address of your hostel before hopping in to a tuktuk. And don’t listen to the drivers when they tell you it has closed down – they want to take you to their ‘friend’s place’ for a small profit!
Get ready for fascinating culture, cows, colours and never ending beeping. India is fantastic.
