I went to change money into Indian Rupees and the money changer told me that he received a travel alert stating that non Indian Nationals are not allowed to bring Indian Rupees into India. Is this true? Anyone experienced any issues with bringing Indian Rupees into India?

Hi,

My friends and I are going to a wedding in Goa in October and then planning to spend Diwali in Mumbai. We have 6 days in between the two and were looking for ideas of what to do in between.

We want to see more of india outside of goa and mumbai, and are pretty adventurous, just obviously restricted by time.

Any suggestions?
