Tips

Maintain decoram and avoid photography at cremation sites.
Beware of 'holy men' who walk straight up to you, say Namaste, plant a daub of red/yellow paint on you forehead and then expect money.
Don't give the name of the hotel you want to a rickshaw driver - they will try to tell you that they know a better one, or that it's closed, etc
Keep all doors and windows closed whenever you are out of your room, and probably even if you're there. The monkeys of Varanasi have gained a reputation as vandals and theives.
Avoid walking at Ghats in the night. There is no lighting, and it is very dark.
