    India Travel Guide

    This is the best book I've ever come across about Indian culture and travel scams in India. I think the cultural aspects are explained with the reasonable accuracy. <BR/><BR/>I've read this book within one and a half hour and can correlate many of my past experiences dealing with Indians from this book. <BR/><BR/>However, I have one regret. I wish I should've read this book before so I could've avoided being the victim of one of the scams while I was travelling in India.

    India culture & Travel Scams - Worth Reading

    This book highlights both the positive aspect of Indian culture and the hidden evil customs, especially the suffering of women in the Indian society. <BR/><BR/>This book shows what is usually not apparent on the face of jolly Indians when you meet them. <BR/><BR/>You may not like this book if you are planning to settle down in India. However you would definitely appreciate it if you want to prepare yourself for the usual uncertainties in India and avoid being trapped from various travel scams targeting westerners. <BR/><BR/>Ana
