    Nasty kids

    When you walk around particulary in the old town wich is quite nice a lot of kids will come and talk to you. The most direct one was a boy who looked like 12, it started "schoolpen?" the next thing was "women" since i probably looked a bit stupid he showed me what to do with them. One after an other came, most tried to show there school first (and asking then for quite some money once you are in the school) and offering sex with girls ore themselfe (there are heavy penalties in India). They all used the same catch phrases like if they where trained by someone.

    Unique Suggestions: If you want to see the old town rent a bicycle, they wont be able to follow you.

    Fun Alternatives: ln case you want to see the school agree first on the price and the exact amount ready. All the other offers ignor!

    All around the temples

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The whole area around the main western group of temples is full of tacky tourist shops, internet cafes, phone places, hotels and restaurants all with their own touts calling at you which, obviously, gets rather annoying after hearing it all day.

    When you Travel Khajuraho be careful of touts/Road Guids they are standing Major tourist Place or out side the Hotels they ask your name & country and talk in your own language or offer you Meal/Drink/Smoke/Shopping etc.

    Unique Suggestions: Don't belive them.Learn a few words of Hindi and a lot of people might think you have been living here for a while and hence you are familiar with the place.Also Wear Indian Dress/Cloths etc.

    Fun Alternatives: Never travel/walk alone late evening/night alone unless you are accompanied by a well known local host . Donot wear heavy jewellery and display heavy cash .Donot wear to less cloths or too mutch make-up.lots of touts always keep your eyes your beongings. Many guys looking to find womens for sex......but they can do nothing untill you support them ..... Just ignore strangers.......on streets .Many forgenirs like to have sex , please do not show that you are tempted for fun .Try to stay place where most of tourist staying. you will have a nice an enjoyable trip surely take care.
