    Never Never eat at any food stalls on the street.
    Never Never eat salad , raw vegetables and fruits from any food stalls or any small restaurants. Try to stick to any restaurants in the big hotel or any upscale restaurants. By following this advise, it's still not guarantee that you would not get sick from eating at any big restaurants. Delhi Belly is not just a simple diarrhea symptom. Some people may have nonstop diarrhea and vomitting at the same time. Some may experience terrible abdominal cramps.

The lab technician may determine if you have Amoeba or ghardia (??sp) from your stool sample. Remember always have your hand sanitizer handdy with you.

    Mostly, flight from abroad to Delhi landed around midnight. So be careful in pick up taxi. Use the service nearby exit gate which mentioned metered taxi. Describe your destination as clear as appears in address. And will be better added with your own map.

    I just hated how every1 was a chancer in India. if u go to the toilet theres some guy ther to collect money for maintainance no matter what kinda horrible state its in.
    the worst was at the airport when I was leaving. a guy came to my car with a trolley and the driver put my bags on it. this guy pushed the trolley bout 50m to the door of the terminal and asked for R100! ($2.50). I only had a R100 note but said Id give him R50 and he said he had no change and wanted me to go to a shop to get change. still feeling sick I was not going to do that so grabbed my trolley and walked off. then like magic the guy produced change for my R100. You just cant relax there for a second.

    Warning: If you have a stopover, make sure it's not for many hours...

    I was stuck at the airport from 1-8AM and the only thing I could do was to watch cricket on a TV. No shops, no nothing in one small room.

    There a was a coffee stall though...I must have been his best customer ever ! Nescafe rocks !

  • Taxis/ Autos

    Most of the taxis/ Autos will overcharge you, or take you over a longer route if you look new to the place.
    I would advise you to take a pre-paid car / auto ( available at the main railway stations) .

    There is absolutely no concept of tipping the drivers.
