How much does a trip to India cost? A look at the average per-day cost of backpacking India for two weeks on a mid-range budget.
To continue my travel budgeting series around Asia, next up is India!
I’d been wanting to go to India for years, but it was always one of the few countries that I was hesitant to do alone – at least for my first trip. You hear so many negative stories about India in the news, especially in terms of its seemingly rampant rape culture and its overall intensity as a country to travel to as an outsider.
With that said, I’d actually only ever heard good things from people (read: fellow women) who had been to the country and loved their time there.
And yet, I still had a reluctance to tackle it on my own. I’m not exactly sure why. I so very rarely travel with other people, maybe it was just one of those countries where I wanted to treat myself and travel with a partner in crime. To take on the extreme cultural differences and busyness with another well worn traveler and wanderlust soul.
