Skirts specifically are not required, but modest dress certainly is, mostly in religious sites: churches like St. Peter's in the Vatican, major temples in Thailand and India, mosques pretty much anywhere if they're even open to visitors, etc. From the Vatican's official site: Access to Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, Vatican Gardens and Saint Peter's ...

As @hippietrail said in a comment, I know by experience that Orthodox monasteries require girls and women to wear long skirts to enter the building (I visited some of these monasteries on a school trip). Knowing that before leaving, I brought with me an old skirt and put it on over my jeans just before entering, but the monks had many skirts to be used ...

There are similar answers, but mine is more about Asian sights. If you are visiting Buddhist places, temples do not really force male or female to wear specific clothing, but too revealing cloths are frowned upon by locals. If you plan to visit a Buddhist place, try not to wear shorts, bikini, etc. Anything that covers until your knees and covers shoulders ...

Inside the airport transit zone the temperature is normal, and you probably do not need a coat there. However, you should remember, that some airlines don't use the jetway/airbridge, so you might have to travel between the terminal and the aircraft by using a shuttle bus. Those buses are super cold inside.

Rain is definitely a possibility. Could be anything from a mostly sunny day with occasional rain to several days of downpour, depending on the short term weather situation - checking the weather forecast just before you leave is definitely your best bet. Forecasts are usually pretty accurate and reliable for the next couple days. The site that @LaurentG ...

You could check just before your departure the weather forecast in Geneva. The current weather now (sunny and between 10-20 degrees) is quite nice for the season and you can also expect the weather to change a lot from day to day. At late October it could be also about max. 10 degrees and rainy as the temperature can stay at about 20 degrees or even a little ...

Depends a lot on the location, country, culture and religion in question. Most countries have their own ethics and morals, which often encompass dressing styles and restrictions. Religious locations tend to be one of the most common places were a "dress code" is suggested. And often revealing or sexy clothing is not appropriate to wear. As travelers we ...

Although I'm not living there now, I spent 25 years in the Bay Area. Although in a number of companies like Google and Facebook, I am sure there are lots of programmers wearing T-shirts and jeans, I think it would be safer to wear chinos/khakis and either a polo shirt or a buttoned shirt, but probably not white. With latter, I would think a sweater would ...

Some general advice that might apply anywhere, except that in general a suit is "fail safe" and I think for the bay area you should aim for something less formal: Be sure you are comfortable with what you choose (you want to exude confidence and not be distracted in any way by something as mundane as clothing). If in doubt, dress casual. As a traveller ...

I think some could provide anecdotes or suggestions, but a few things to remember: Have fun. Don't get too hung up on not doing the wrong thing You're the foreigner, some faux pas are more readily forgiven Saying, that, there's an excellent article on Marriage and wedding customs in the Philippines on Wikipedia. It covers some attire, some of the ...

When I visited Switzerland, the wind was chilly and it was raining. Personally, not the best combination. Just remember to bring a jacket with you to fight it. Check the weather in advance too. In general, I don't think the Swiss are that into fashion. If you don't want to stick out, don't dress like an Eskimo and don't wear brands that stand out. You ...

It should definitely be enough but you should take the warm jacket with you just in case. But you can judge yourself. Temperature Averages in Paris in November are about 7°C (41°F) and it can be quite rainy (15 rainfall days in december as seen on holiday-weather.com). A rainjacket is advised, but depends on your personal preference. If you don't mind ...

I didn't want to just provide anecdotal notes, but since Mark Mayo encouraged it here are some -- I've been to several weddings in the Philippines and I've heard about many more. The short answer to your question is: it varies. Wildly. A lot of what the Wikipedia page says can happen, but none of it is guaranteed -- weddings are really up to the couple, ...

I mainly agree with @pnuts answer but feel that points 2 (dress casual) and 6 (jacket, white shirt, and chinos/black jeans) are in conflict. So some things to think about Because you are not going there for training only, but to meet other software engineers and foster a stronger relationship between the two companies, I believe you should dress in business ...
