Another place not scariest

Don't say water.
I don't even eat the food on the streets and in hotels.

Lucky my female colleagues brought Maggie mee and canned food and we survived on that In our hotel rooms.

Really cannot touch the food there. Maybe local have the immunity but not us. Our tummy too sterile for their food.
I eat a lot in yeendia. The one time I fell very sick is when I drank water from a water cooler in the restaurant.
That said, all my eating places are highly recommended ones

Agreed .... India is quite scary coz' foreigners are advised against drinking any local tap water.... otherwise you will definitely suffer from severe diarrhea

Everytime I eat or drink anything there, I have to think 2x before doing so.

The first time I ever went to India was a total culture shock.

Can smell Cow Dung the moment I stepped out of Indira Ghandi Airport.

Got totally naked beggars who are so poor, they don't even own any clothes. ( The beggars in all other countries are at least clothed)

Can also see and smell human faeces at railways.

yesh... moi went there for biz trip... moi senior warned me against drinking the tap water there... there was once when he went there... he was welly careful notch to drink the tap water there the whole trip... then on the last day... he drank coke with their ICE... and he came back diarrhoea like siaoz... :s22::crazy::frown:

China is safer as SG. In Guangzhou, you can see uniformed public security guards wearing light blue shirts every street corners day and night. I almost bump onto them in dark alleyways. They are familiar with the neighbourhood and know the residents. They are not policemen like our NPP. They seem to be positioned in strategic spots around the city. In tourist areas, you can spot one standing every 3 lamp posts apart. That many.

Barcelona, it doesn't look it but it's full of petty thieves and scammers. Makati. Parts of US are crazy bad but you know to avoid them.

Too kuazhang and worried too much. I ate only at proper hotels there and had no issues. Unless you stayed in budget places. But I think in India really need to stay at four five star hotels.

You are lucky. Can leave next day.
I kana there for almost 1 week.

At Delhi. Airport was ok. Not bad until reached the city Famous Sadar Bazar. OMG.
My female colleagues so scared they grabbed my arms thoughtout the trip. ;)


Example of the Male crowds in Delhi.
If moi can grab any zharbor on the streets and rubba rubba them, take selfies without even asking, will a certain country to beg me to go into their country to work as a high flying talent? :frown:

Like that might as well go on a Youtiube vacation. Will only cost you a bit of electricity and some data.

Went Milwaukee in US. I wanted to buy some items which SG dun have so just Google the nearest supermarket and went there.

It was a bad choice. The moment I step out of car, I notice how come all the black people look at me and there only got black people. Quickly went in, bought my stuff and leave.

My US colleagues said I went to a ‘rough’ neighbourhood. Naive me think everywhere is color blind.

On my first business trip to India, I watched "slum dog millionaire" in the plane so I already had a scary impression of the place before i landed. I was ferried around by company driver everywhere from hotel to office and I dare not venture out anywhere on my own. Beggars will come to your car whenever it stopped due to traffic and knocked on it and asked for money. It was both frightening and heartwrenching.
