Overseas health insurance policyholders who are considering going to India should understand that the country cannot be seen in a single trip.
This is the advice of Rajen Habib Khwaja, secretary at the Ministry of Tourism, who said India's rich culture and natural heritage "is unparallel".
"India is an experience, and one cannot complete this experience in one visit. We are proud that we get many repeat visitors who want to have different experiences in different regions of India," he noted.
Overseas medical insurance customers might like to try a range of activities while on their visit, from mountaineering in the Himalayas to white water rafting in the Ganges.
Travellers who are unfamiliar with the country should take care not to pet stray animals, because rabies has not been eradicated from India.
Similarly, rural parts of the nation frequently have outbreaks of malaria, so anti-malarial drugs should be taken with tourists when they leave for India.
