    Hi - you should dress conservatively - no shorts/short skirts, or low cut tops. Capris/short sleeve tops are fine. In the hot weather, cotton is more comfortable. You can buy inexpensive Indian wear such as salwar kameez at markets and those are comfortable as well. Sandals are fine, but in the rainy season, clothes shoes are better. Enjoy!

    Hi - I assumed (hopefully correctly) that you were female. :-) If not, don't worry about the short skirts/low-cut tops. The rest would still apply. :-)

    Oh sorry! If not female, skip the salwar kameez as well!

    I wish we'd get an edit button here!! :-))

    Hi! Benny!

    The sunflower look good, the Sun Trekker looks even better!

    South India is hot being nearer the Tropic of Cancer. So stick to cottons. T-Shirts or half sleeve shirts (we call them bush shirt!) are comfortable. Regular cotton trousers (not courdroys as too thick and, therefore, hot) or half pants (shorts) are just fine. For formal occasions, since a suit is out of the question owing to the heat and the humidity, men wear 'safar' suits. This means a trouser and a bush shirt made of the same material. How this apparel got its name remains a mystery to me!!!
