A new place may require you to be extra smart and decisive. I would recommend to you some of the tips and guidelines that you can follow in order to enjoy your trip to Indore better. They are just general do’s and don’ts but are a great help in the times of need.

  • Wear a scarf if you are going out during the day, it's dusty in Indore.

  • If you are driving on the streets of the city then you should do the task carefully, Unfortunately, there is a little lack of traffic sense in Indore.

  • Autos run on meter in Indore, so don't waste your energy in negotiating on the fares.

  • Metro taxis and star cabs are the best way to travel within the city if you are more of a private person and you do not want to travel in a public transport mode.

  • Make sure that you interact with locals, as the locals are very friendly and helpful. This can be really a boon for you at several occasions.

  • Being a part of the hot Madhya Pradesh, Indore understandably is quite a hot and dry zone. So, you should always make it a point to carry sun-tan lotions, hats, and light clothes if you are planning your trips in summers.

  • You should never forget to haggle over the taxi fares whether it is travelling to or within the city.

  • Like any big city in the country, Indore is quite safe for any kind of traveller. However, you should take good care of your belongings and valuables such as your family members and children. Hey! They are important.

  • Even though, the street food in Indore can be tempting at times, try and use your discretion in choosing a hygienic vendor. Try to avoid fried street food if you are travelling during the humid months of monsoon.

  • Cribbing over prices while shopping will save you a lot of bucks. True story!

  • Try to carry less of hard cash as you can locate several ATMs at every nook and corner of the city.

Now that much has been outlined for you to keep in mind, you can go ahead and explore the place yourself.
