India is a truly beautiful country full of culture, colour and beauty and it offers such a wide range of experiences and locations – your packing list will need to be pretty diverse.
For those of you visiting the country for a relaxing holiday in one of the beach resorts, you’ll need to pack plenty of swimming clothes, sun-cream, sandals and light layers for the evening. Pretty much what you’d expect to pack for a beach getaway.
For those of you planning a more adventurous getaway to the cities and towns for sightseeing and exploring, you’ll want to include a little more variety – so you have appropriate clothing for the myriad of different places you will visit here.
Light and breathable layers are always advised due to the temperature and humidity, as are hats and sunglasses to keep you in the shade and protected from the Sun.
For women it’s advisable to bring cover-ups too, that can easily be slipped over your shoulders and head when visiting religious or cultural spaces.
As you’d expect in a country as large as India, the climate and temperature varies greatly depending on where you go, and when you go. In the south of the country you’ll find temperatures hot and tropical, but toward the mountains in the north, that can change drastically (with snowfall being common in winter months).
