"When on the first days of your..." India Tourist Trap Tip by houba

India Tourist Traps: 121 reviews and 77 photos


When on the first days of your holiday you 're staying on the beach, the indian sales-people recognize you as new tourists (because you're still pale white : )) Don't give them a smile or look at them (unless you wan to go home with a lot of useless souvenirs) Just say no when they go to you, because as soon as one sales-people is sitting near you to show you his stuff, other sales people will too. And then it is very hard to get rid of them.
