  • Don't wear clothes that are revealing or provocative. When in India, it is best to cover up yourself so as not to attract unwanted attention.
  • Women can roam around in jeans and tee shirts, long cotton pants and cotton shirts. Skirts, if long are much better than the short ones.
  • It is not quite advisable to show public displays of affection. It not only offends Indians, but also attracts lewd remarks and gestures. Refrain from any such physical activity that is intimate.
  • It is alright to shake hands with most people, though keep a distance from males. Some people might just take it in the wrong sense and not like it.
  • Saying "Hi" or "Hello" is acceptable in cities, though with elders it is best to greet with a "Namaste".
  • While roaming in beaches, it is best to be clothed. India does not allow people to be in their swim-wear even in beaches. Wear a cotton pant and a tee shirt.
  • While in a pub, discotheque or a bar, it is advisable to take a friend along with you. Do not venture there alone as it may not be very safe.
  • Indians usually don't allow women to smoke in public. If you have to smoke, do it in your hotel room. However, some major urban cities seem to have accepted women smoking in public.
  • If you happen to come across a street party or a festive procession, it is best not to take part. Most Indian women also stay away from such crowds in which there are many aggressive males. You can watch from a distance and move on when it has passed you.
