Hi TokyTravel

Holi in Varanasi, you are so lucky!

Go out in the streets with your bag of powder along with everyone else and GIVE AS MUCH OUT AS YOU GET :)

Tip: buy a plastic supersquirter gun and let rip.

Hi TokyTravel,

Holi is played with colors on Holi day, wet paint colors during the day and powder colors during the evenings. Please keep in mind that it may get wild so be cautious. Participating in a family Holi celebrations is better than playing a wild Holi with intoxicated men on roads.

My friend and I will also be in Varanasi for Holi 2017. Would love a safe place for women to go.

Hi balletdnsr37127

It you want to keep back a little bit from the action, stay near your hotel, maybe the hotel will be playing holi in a cut down version for their guests?

I think you and your friend(s) could enjoy holi on the streets, by the ghats etc, just follow a few simple tips such as never going off alone, keeping away from intoxicated youths and dressing modestly (old clothes of course for holi).

Have a nice trip :)
