The 8 Best India Travel Guide Books - TRIPSAVVY - 12/09/19

"This book takes a culturally minded look at women's safety in the country to inform women both before they leave and while they're in-country about how they can travel safely throughout the country. Written by J.D. Viharini, the book informs women on how to minimize the risk of problems while they're exploring the country by addressing and explaining cultural factors and mindsets. Chapters address how foreign women are shown in the media (promiscuously), standards of dress in India, the types of places that are and aren't safe for women to stay in, and what to do if you are sexually assaulted. Although, of course, the burden shouldn't be on women to avoid violence-it's a larger cultural issue-it's hard to change that in a single trip, and this guide does a great job of helping women navigate the country safely in the meantime.

Lifeline to getting the most from solo, female travel

"I met J.D. Viharini in Nepal recently and listened, first-hand, to accounts of her Indian travels. She is authentic, wise, experienced, expert in the advice she offers. Having travelled to 56 countries, read countless travel books and spoken to people all over the world, I was amazed at the tips I learned in reading this book. In addition, she speaks from a deeply embodied understanding of India, suggesting a nuanced approach to cultural competency, adopting an 'impression management' style of travel which offers an alternative approach to compromising one's own cultural values and identity. Fears are addressed and alleviated. Yet, this book is so simple, practical, easy and wide-ranging in application. Just excellent!"
