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).

If in doubt, dress casual. As a traveller ...

While others have answered how, I'll try to answer why. Technology. The hot water used to come from a hot water storage tank, usually in the attic. The stagnant water in the tank isn't considered safe for drinking. That's why there has to be a separate system, all the way down to the taps, so it can't contaminate the safe cold water from the mains (should ...

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 ...
