Trip Report Packing for India

Jump to last reply

I just returned from an OAT trip to Southern India. I thought I'd pass along suggestions from my trip for anyone interested in what to pack. First of all, it's very hot and humid. Several quick showers daily helped, but be prepared for the heat. I found that loose light weight cotton shirts were the most comfortable. Men in our group who wore T-shirts or Polo Shirts were miserable. Linen, or button down cotton worked best. Same with pants. All my nice REI travel pants ended up being too heavy. I bought very light weight and loose pants in the markets. Tennis shoes are a pain, as are Teva's because you constantly have to take your shoes off to enter temples. I had slip on Croc sandals that worked perfectly. I remembered to bring a small can of baby powder and that kept my feet from sticking to the plastic crocs. It's a fascinating country and Southern India is very different from the North. I'm sure I'll remember more things as I go along, but thought I'd post this for now.
