    I did far South to far North India for about 5 weeks and barely had any issues or a bad time. If you're an experienced enough traveller you can see touts/scammers from a mile away, and just ignore anyone begging if they do, same as you would in a first world country.
    Sure its not as clean as a first world country but not really any different to other SE Asian countries - maybe just a few more cows wandering around the streets.

    I've been to India, and like many others would attest, most of it was shit. There was actually one region of India I really liked, and it was very different from the typical India I've experienced. That was the only good part of my trip.

    That said, I don't regret my trip to India. If anything, I've come out stronger from the experience. Once you take a trip to India, not much else fazes you. No matter what kind of adversity you face in your travels, it won't compare to India.

        I didn't disclose its name for a reason. I plan on keeping this one to myself so it doesn't get ruined.

          It's not the westerners that ruin India.

      Pretty much same experience here. Amritsar and Jaisalmer somewhat made the overall experience bearable, however the rest of the country should be nuked, especially the triangle of rape, shit and piss.

    India is a thousand times better with a tour guide call me a normal gay but is true. Hire a local, through offical normal means as to avoid a scammer. Trust me.

    Also Jaipur is the best Indian city. Ranthambor tiger park is pretty cool.

    Best part about India is the food.

    Been there dozens of times, lived there for several years. India can be frustrating, but it's what you make of it. No use saying more, since 99% of these threads are troll-filled garbage.

      I remember you from previous threads. Seems you are more off the beaten path. Have any experience in Mumbai?

        >Seems you are more off the beaten path
        Sorta. I was living in a Tier-1 city for the past several years but recently moved back to America, where I intend to stay long-term (although my wife and I have discussed possibly moving back to India if she gets a U.S.-based position or finds well-compensated remote work).

        However, I do prefer rural destinations, and I've spent a lot of time in Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, and Odisha. Beautiful, beautiful places. Locals are fairly chill, Adivasis--or tribal people--don't really give a shit about outsiders, but are some of the nicest folk you could possibly come across, especially once you've gotten on their good side.

        >Have any experience in Mumbai?
        I've been about a half-dozen times, although my last ~2 visits were for embassyshit, so I didn't really hang out. It's a cool city, though, and I'd have vastly preferred living there. Would have been even more tempting if transit in Mumbai wasn't absolute dogshit, your two choices for traveling long distances are basically sitting in never-ending traffic or getting ass-fricked on the local (suburban trains).

    I loved it tbh. Been twice for 4 weeks each. HOWEVER, 4 weeks is basically the limit for me, I think. After that, I really need to take a break in a less chaotic, cleaner country, but in short bursts, India is great fun and an amazing place to travel if you can handle chaos and filth.
