Kids in Village Talluka with a Jeans and Shirt Clad Me!
India fascinates so many travelers from various parts of the globe. I was today searching for some information on the net and stumbled on the site of Government of India FAQ on tourism.
I found it interesting. I wonder what do you have to say about the advice given there. On this page, I am putting just one.
I hear Indians are a more conservative lot especially compared to people in Western countries. What kind of clothes would be acceptable here?
Shorts, minis and tank tops are unadvisable unless you’re on a beach. In small towns and cities especially, people may tend to stare if you expose too much skin. Safe clothing would be trousers, peddle pushers, capris, skirts, tops and shirts. India has some good cottons which are trendy and affordable. Buy yourself some. Women could try wearing a salwar kameez which is very cool and comfortable and could even improve the attitude of people towards them.
I am not sure how sound that advice is, particularly the salwar kameez part. Anywhere, when I am traveling on vacation my dress code is jeans and trousers only, as they are comfortable. Till date, I never felt out of place. Even shorts and tank tops are so common in big cities, particularly Malls.
Have a look at the complete FAQ and decide for yourself.
