There may be occasions in your life when you need to travel abroad, it might be any reason- studies, employment or just for travelling and enjoying. Like India every country has its own customs and rules which they want to be followed by the outsiders who visit. There is a saying in English, “when in Rome, do as the Romans do”. Visiting any country our only aim should be not to violate their rules and cultures instead follow them full heartedly. During any travel we keep in mind what to wear and what not to wear and it is very much important for us to take care of things which we should not wear.
Shorts is not that much familiar dress everywhere like in America shorts is very common but for Indonesians and Vietnamese it’s not very familiar with the people over there. So, do pack your bag according to the culture and rules of the country you’re going for.
Religiously immodest clothing:
It would be a wise decision for us to dress conservatively in any country holding deeply religious views. Country like a Middle East, women particularly should avoid wearing miniskirts, shorts, tight pants, cut sleeves specially while entering to the churches or any holy place. Meanwhile they should carry a shawl or stole with them just in case.
Try avoiding wearing expensive jewellery when you are planning for your trip to abroad. You really don’t need to show off your valuables to anyone because it may lead you into any further problem away from your land.
Uncomfortable foot wears:
While packing your bag try and pack some comfortable shoes and flats which would be really helpful in your tour. High heels will leave you in pain rather having fun and happy moments with your loved ones for which you have spent so much of money and time.
Unless and until bright colours are the want of your destination, try avoiding them. Go for suttle colours which define every mood and temperature. Wear those colours which are very common among the people over there as it will add you to the crowd rather putting you totally different and out casted.
Gadgets like camera, expensive cell phones should be avoided while travelling as it may leave you just like a tourist. If you want yourself to be the part of the crowd, take less pictures of the place you have gone for.
An oversized jacket:
It is very much important to take care of the types of clothes we are packing for a long journey tour. Try avoiding oversized jackets and unwanted clothes without which tour is manageable. As this will save you both space and hassle when packing.
Very often it happens with us while we are at any function and we have packed a heavy dress for the occasion, as we open up to change we find the gorgeous dress turned into a mess. From discomfort to wrinkles and funky odours, the fabrics you choose can make or break your travel days. That’s why avoid packing silks, nylon, leather and more generally clothes made out of synthetic material.
A Large Purse:
At times we buy bags just for show to which we can say as fancy bags. Now while we are going to visit a place which is least familiar to us we should try keeping those bags at home. These kind of bags invite the pickpockets and with them a problem for us. So try keeping small zippers which could be easily carried without any fear of being robbed.
I think it would be more uneasy you being watched by your seat mate struggling with your attire, so keep this in your head after all the packing are done to wear the outfits which don’t bite you inside. Try wearing skirts, maxi, loose trousers, wrinkle free shirts as when you are attended by some of office mate or friends at the airport you mustn’t appear struggling with your clothes.
