Our insider tips

When should I go?

Anytime except September and October, as this is monsoon season and may cause travel difficulties and uncertainties.

Do I need to wear any special clothes for temples?

Make sure your shorts or pants cover your knees, and don't wear a sleeveless shirt - if in doubt, bring a scarf. You should also keep talking to a minimum in holy places.
