What advice would you give female travelers to India?

Dress modestly and be wary of your behavior with men. In certain circles, especially in big cities, women sometimes hug their male friends, but this is more the exception than the norm in India. Short skirts and cleavage-bearing tops are perfectly fine in most Delhi nightclubs but are inappropriate in Rajasthan. Finally, be very careful after dark and don’t be afraid to tell someone off if he or she is behaving in a way that makes you uncomfortable.
