My first safety tip is about traveling with your friends, not solo! Try to avoid traveling alone and it may lead to some sexually harassed or molested. Womens got right freedom of movement, but it is one of safety precaution that works in India.
While traveling by overnight trains, try to pick the upper berth to avoid gropers and other issues. If you are ready to invest some buck, then go with expensive train seat where the train car will have only a few passengers. This can make you feel better!
When you are swimming, try to wear a T-shirt and long shorts over a bathing suits. It is just like following the local Indian custom.
Don’t accept food and drinks from strangers. These things may happen while you are travelling on buses, trains and in public spots. So be aware! Sometimes it may rob and or sexually assaulted!
Try to avoid eye contact and body contact too! This is especially for western female tourists having contact with unknown may lead some critical issues. Don’t trust anyone quickly within a short time!
While traveling try to set next to other women and always looks for other women wherever you go!
Try to avoid night travel, mostly never ride in empty buses or train. Always be with your companion for transportation. And always visit the better-known place!
Always set your boundaries with your body languages like Indian women do. If anyone try to set too close to you, then raise your voice and tell ” Don’t try! Do not Touch!” quickly.
Always be alert to your surroundings and with the strangers. Maintain a distance between them and if they try to do anything, first try to avoid them. Then shout over the crowd and the rest will be taken cared by the public!
If you are out for your traveling along then try to act that you are already married and talking to your husband. Always be relaxed and bold!
