For ages, India has been viewed as a symbol of the mystical and exotic East.
Traveling in India sometimes requires a few adaptations, especially in terms of dressing up.
It’s essential to wear them in a manner that is respectful to the very modest Indian culture. Basic standards of modesty all over India require that you cover your knees, upper arms, shoulders, cleavage and midriff. When wearing pants, go for loose, tunic-style tops that cover your crotch and buttocks. It’s best to dress conservatively and keep yourself safe at all times.
It is possible that during your stay in India, you will have to spend several hours in transportation. Wear clothing which is ample and comfortable. India is a country where it can be very hot during the day. Light clothing should be preferred that protect you from the sun while not choking you. You will also appreciate the long sleeves and pants to protect you from mosquitoes in certain areas.
Depending on the trip you wish to make, you will not always need the same types of clothing. For your stays in North India in the mountains, it will be better if you bring clothing which is suitable for long hours of trekking.
If your stay is destined to South India around beaches, light clothing, flip flop and swim suit will be welcoming.
In any case, don’t forget to wear good, light weight walking shoes and carry a warm jacket and a k way along with you.
