India offers an opportunity, but of course there is no cake walk
I was associated with a service / budget hotel chain in Delhi NCR and saw a phenomenal change in the impact of globalization. With such a multinational corporation in India, thousands of workers go to India for work. Many who come here for the first time find it difficult to adapt.
It is not known that Indian cities have large living standards. With higher growth costs come – traffic snarls, power outages, noise pollution and certain chaos. Indian cities have received a bad rap in recent years, as there is a lot of history and culture that has gone unnoticed. Delhi is one of the oldest capitals in the world and has a rich history – strolling through the streets of Delhi still does a bit of work. How to plan their trip to India if they get the perfect career opportunity to work in a high-growth, dynamic economy like India? This is not just an excellent career opportunity, but also an opportunity to learn how people effectively operate in seemingly random environments.
Plan ahead and determine your logistics
The choices of people who come to work in India are real
• Staying in a hotel – It may be wise to stay in a hotel for a few days, but the cost, lack of dining room and space can be a barrier to staying longer. The choices you make are obvious
• Rent an apartment and furnish it – this is a good choice if you are specific about the type of decor and furniture you want. It is also more economical than a hotel, but there are several issues that need to be addressed. Of course, the first thing to do is to find the right apartment and sign a lease – there are a lot of problems in rental documents that people need to know to include early break provisions. The other issue, of course, is what to do with furniture if you decide to go back early. It takes time and effort, but not impossible!
• Stay in a hotel or service room for a long time – this is the choice between choosing a hotel or a rental apartment.
Delhi is coming to NCR? There are many choices – but how do you choose it right?
There are many considerations to consider before choosing a hotel, guest house or hotel for a longer stay. They must have a leader
• Location – Google Maps lists your locations as a good starting point. Be aware – most of the places on the map are incorrectly displayed, invalid or closed. Ideally, something close to the workplace cannot be predictable in advance of traffic in India. The proximity to the airport and highway would be a bonus.
• Reviews and Reputations – Tripadvisor and Booking.com reviews are a great place to list your real research. In addition to the ratings, it is important to understand whether the requirements of the previous visitor are the same – long-term stay, service?
• Request a Trial – Going to a new city to live is always awesome. Where to shop, how to connect a mobile phone connection to more complex questions like a social circle. It would be wise for you to stay where you are for a week or so before deciding to sign a longer term lease. Of course, this is not possible with a rental home, but many guest houses and service apartments will give you choice.
• Cooking is one of the biggest challenges when choosing a place. Depending on the resident's kitchen for a few days, eating is definitely not a big idea. Having your own small kitchen is a huge plus
• Long-term Discounts – Most residences will have a long-term policy that you will have to ask if you want to sign a long-term contract. The more you lock, the better.
• Booths and Rental Machines (Parking) – If you are in the mid-term, if you are unsure about driving, it is a good idea to rent a car. In India, booths are acceptable, but the quality is poor. Providing a private transportation company at an extra cost will help solve many issues, including security.
Luggage Warehouse – Large service apartments and guest houses have a place to store luggage for long periods of time. This service should be free
Therefore, consider all these factors before selecting. In fact, it is better to make 2-3 choices than to find a place to stay in an expensive hotel before arriving in India. Our company, which provides a guest house in Gurgaon, has been managing the logistics of its guests for 8 years. I hope these practical tips will be useful.
