If you are travelling to India’s large cities for work or leisure… I’d recommend you pack or pick up the following:

  • earplugs
  • sun cream with a high spf (best to bring your own)
  • something warm to wear in restaurants, shops, theatres, galleries, cars, trains and other places with air conditioning for example a pashmina shawl or a cardi, depending on your style and gender
  • mosquito repellent –  the local brands are effective
  • a local sim card, convenient to call taxis and hotels.

Besides the emergency numbers, save a few reliable taxi numbers. In Delhi I used Easy Cabs quite a lot, they are good value for money, offer a reliable service and they have meters!
