One of the challenges with traveling in countries like India is the unexpected cacophony of daily life. Blaring horns are often the rule and not the exception. For most western travelers, this constant and noisy backdrop can quickly become an added stressor that can affect not only our travel experience but also our wellbeing.
Travel Tip: When traveling by open-air vehicles like the rickshaws or tuk tuks common in Asia for more than a few kilometers or in especially congested areas, wear earplugs. They provide a momentary buffer from one of the many environmental assaults you may face while moving about.
