You must have heard that famous phrase “ignorance can be bliss” and it may be true in some cases but not when you are travelling to a new place. You must have an idea of some do’s and don'ts of the city  where you are travelling to. Although Dehradun is easy to explore, there are few things you need to keep in mind while moving around in this city.

During the peak seasons Dehradun see a huge inflow of people who visit the place for different reasons- be it a leisure trip or for getting admissions (it is famous for its school and colleges) to several famous institutes or it might be for some other purposes. Finding a place to stay can be a cause of concern and specially if it’s an impromptu trip so it’s advised that you call up the hotels and make booking in advance.

  • As there is so much to explore, make you lose track of time. If your stomach is rumbling with hunger and it’s late, do not worry as you will find that most of the restaurants here are open till midnight.

  • The capital city of Uttarakhand welcomes you with pleasant weather all across the year. However, it is advisable that you carry some light winter clothes with you even you are visiting Dehradun during summers or monsoons.

  • Don’t carry too much hard cash with you as you will find several ATMs in every nook and corner of the city. However, it is advisable to carry some loose cash when you are out for shopping as some of the local shops do not accept credit cards.

  • Make sure you ask for a fixed tariff or meter before you hop on to a private cab or taxi. The drivers may tend to overcharge a bit knowing that you are a tourist.

Make a mental note of these tips as they will come handy. With all these information in your kitty, it’s time to enjoy your vacation in full swing!
