A common consideration is what to
wear on your travels. Keep in mind comfort and of course mobility, but
also the local traditions and cultural norms. Considering a journey
over summer, we have compiled the following notes for you.
Longer shorts are recommended, as opposed to those 70’s mini shorts.
Long sleeved and short sleeved t-shirts are common but we recommend a
vest and a shirt. The vest will cool you down as a sweat-breaker and
the shirt will keep you light and aired.
In sacred places such as temples you will be expected to remove your
footwear and wear long trousers and sleeves.
Avoid denim as it is heavy and you will sweat more than necessary.
In general you should stick to comfortable t-shirts and shirts and
shorts that are cover your knees. If you are traveling alone try not
to show too much flesh as this will only attract attention. Respect
the local cultures and dress appropriately.
Avoid revealing clothing, even on certain beaches. In Goa generally
anything is acceptable as it is very westernised.
