    Clothes for the children

    by Jontxu Written Aug 5, 2007

    Luggage and bags: Usually people go to India thinking about the shopping possibilities and tend to travel with a light luggage, what we did is to ask some friends and colleagues if they had children clothes to bring there. We end up travelling with a few things for ourselves, but we packed our luggage with lots of things we brought to an orphanage as soon as we arrived in Delhi. You won´t have trouble finding one because unfortunately India is full of them.
    I don´t think this is a big effort however it´s an easy way to help all this people who do not have too much help, I am sure you´ll feel a little bit better after that.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: Forget your wife, your husband, your girlfriend, your boyfriend, your mother, your father, your sister, your brother or any other travelling companion. These little things will be your best friend throughout your whole time in India. Look after them, nurture them, feed them , water them and by all means don't lose them!

    Sleepless nights without earplugs!

    by halfbeat Written Jun 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: Ear plugs!!!! I didnt take any with me when i went to Delhi, and the nights in the hotel were terrible!!! I guess if you are staying in one of the big 5 star hotels you would be fine, but the hotel i was in was right in the centre of the Karol bagh area, and wasn't particularly good, and so the noise all night was awful. Constant shouting and engine noise, car horns and dogs barking. If you want to get a good nights sleep in this area... take some earplugs or get a hotel further out in new Delhi where it seemed to be a lot quieter.

    Not really necesary

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: You can buy nearly everything at Delhi, so don't have to bring much things. You will find lots of cheap clothes and if you dont have space for so many new things you can buy very good bags at very good prices.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Close shoes cause there are lots of rubish in the floor. Not white clothes cause you will look so clean.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring medicaments for stomach problems.

    Photo Equipment: You can find photo equipment without problems at good prices.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Mosquito nettings are useless because the ceilings are very high, and I didn't find many mosquitos so ... no problem

    Miscellaneous: You will want to cover your head and will need sunglasses

    pack for all weather!

    by PCuk Written Jul 17, 2003

    Miscellaneous: You may expect India to be hot and sunny,but beware!!The best times to visit are in the Nov-Mar period,however in January the weather in Delhi was foggy with sunny spells and often quite cool..so take your shorts (especially if youre going elsewhere) but also take sweatshirts,jackets and even scarf and gloves (obviously this might not apply in the summer months)
