Facebook can provide travel ideas - India Travel News

In today's modern society, more individuals are using social media to stay in touch with one another and learn about new trends and events. Those taking cheap flights to Delhi are no exception, as one couple recently demonstrated when they opted to take travel advice from Facebook friends during their journey.

Devapriya Roy and Saurav Jha chose to quit their jobs and travel across India with all their possessions in a backpack, living off only 50,000 Rupees for a year, the Indian Express reports. The couple have since written a book about their experiences, which were dictated by fans and friends on Facebook.

With no set plans in mind, the couple chose to listen to advice from followers hundreds or miles away, the news provider reveals. Their subsequent book, "The Heat and Dust Project," is set to be published by Harper Collins.

Travelers planning an epic holiday in India might want to consider taking travel advice from the internet - but can opt for trusted authorities in order to make sure that their itinerary runs as smoothly and safely as possible.
