But I still read different opinions, so I'm a little worried what to bring since I wear a lot of shorts (with nothing hanging out as some ladies have...) and tank tops. I don't want to upset anyone.
Places we will be visiting: Bangalore (and a small surrounding area), Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, Veranasi (and some places in between).
Obviously I know for temples and other holy sites it…

We've been to Palolem nine years ago before kids and found pretty quiet and lovely and are tempted to go back, but my impression is that it has changed and is much more of a party destination now. Where should we…
We are scheduled to fly to Leh beginning of May and here are some questions requesting your expertise.
1. Do you think all "classic" excursions are possible at this time of the year? (Uleytokpo, Tso Moriri, Toskar Lake, Pangong, Nubra Valley, Hunder, Sumur, Panamik)
2. Any other propositions for visits in the area?
3. Any idea about how to travel back to Delhi? Of course we can fly, but we would prefer a road trip (at least partially) as we will have enough time left (around 5-6 days). The roads…
