Good Day -
I hope some educated folks can comment on the following items:
Water Treatment - Is this even required when travelling via train/hotel & drinking bottled water. Is it best to use Chlorine Dioxide? What about the integrated filter bottles that remove 99% giardia & cryptosporidium? www.pristine.ca
Mosquito Net - Are these available for purchase in the tourist areas? Is it best to bring one along c/w anti-bug poison in the net itself?
I thank everyone for their time & help. Off in 2 days....
U dont need water treatment if u opt for bottled water which is widely available in all touristic areas of India, just ensure that its seal is not broken
Mosquito nets are available quite cheap and easily available and u can purchase one for ur entire trip
Cheers and have a nice trip
I agree, no need for water treatment if you are sticking to bottled water. That is probably your safest bet. But it is common for people to try to refill water bottles and sell them to you. So as arif_kool says, make sure that the bottle is sealed.
I didn't find a need for mosquito nets in India. Maybe it was the time of year that I went (July - Dec) but I never had problems with mosquitos and any place where there were some the hotel would provide a net for you.
Enjoy your trip.
Thank you very much my Indian & Canadian repliers! You've reduced the weight of our baggage and stress a bit this morning.
