Pune on your mind as your next destination? Wonderful choice! Well, it is always sounds so exciting when you are planning your trip to your dream destination and you are so excited about it that you tend to forget the basic things that you should keep in your mind. Don’t worry, we will help you. All you have to do is to read on the following listing. Take a look:

  • Prepare an extensive itinerary so that you don’t miss out on all the fun spots in the city. Plan your days in the city and give maximum time to all your favourite activities.

  • Avoid carrying too much hard cash, as Pune is well endowed with a number of ATMs. It is also suggested to check if your bank has an ATM in the city to avoid being stuck.

  • The cultural hub of Maharashtra welcomes you with a very pleasant weather all across the year. However, summers could be quite warm with temperature shooting up to 42°C, it is advisable to carry light summer clothes. Also make sure you have a suntan lotion with you to avoid sunburn. If you are planning your trip to Pune during monsoons, do carry umbrella and raincoats with you as the city witnesses pelting rain during monsoon season.

    Don’t forget to make space for winter clothes in your luggage as winters could be cold and chilly.

  • Pune sees a huge inflow of people all across the year for different reasons. Finding a place to stay in Pune can be a cause of concern and specially if its an
    impromptu trip so it’s advised that you call up the hotels and make booking in advance.

  • Being a student friendly area, Pune is pretty safe for women travellers as the city is always bustling with students and you can easily step out even at nights.

  • Auto ride in Pune is quite comfortable as the drivers won’t even ask for the place you want to go. You just step in at an auto and you can ask them for the place where you are planning to go in the city.

  • Even though Puneites are very friendly, they are very rigid about the language they speak. Everywhere, you will find people speaking in Marathi, even if they know Hindi and English. So you must be prepared for that before you start any conversation with the locals.  

Keep all this in mind and make most of your time in this beautiful city of Pune.
