Before You Travel

What to Pack

Bright, cheerful clothes will make you feel like a part of colourful India. We recommend modern, sensible clothes, keeping the weather in mind. While you don’t always have to dress conservatively when you are out and about, remember that certain monuments and places of worship insist on modest clothing and may not allow shorts, vests and tank tops, and so on.
