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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Mustang is essentially a suburb of Oklahoma City, the biggest city in the state (half million in population or so). Spending wise you will find the state to be cheaper overall compared to costs in Canada, but not by a huge amount. I would budget based on what things cost you visiting a big city in Canada and be happy having a few dollars left at trip's ...

Since there is only eight hours of daylight in London in January I would suggest you take the afternoon class. If you take the morning class then most of the daylight hours will taken up studying inside. It is probably safer and more enjoyable to wander around an unfamiliar city during daylight. For typical sunrise / sunset hourse see : Sunrise/Sunset ...

In general, museums and attractions tend to open at 10am. Exceptions of note are Westminster Abbey (9:30), Mme Tussaud's (9:30), Tower of London (9am). With the exception of Westminster Abbey (closes at 3:30pm), museums and attractions seem to remain open till at least 5:30pm. There may be fewer visitors earlier in the mornings for some of the ...

It's not hard to identify flights which may fly over the Grand Canyon— but finding out which ones definitely will, and whether or not you will have a view if you take one, are a different story. With some trial and error, you can find flights that pass over the area on any of the websites that offer flight tracking, like FlightAware.com. Grand Canyon ...

Paris is a city not only of famous monuments and great art. It has a modern business centre, areas with a village atmosphere and dangerous slums. So the “authentic” Paris is far more than just a living museum. To get a flavour of the variety and perhaps a better overall impression of the city I suggest: La Défense, Troisieme arrondissement, ...

If you want to experience a bit of the "real Paris". Wake up at 6 on Saturday and go to the many "Brocantes" around paris. Start with a coffee and a croissant in the nearby cafe and enjoy. The nicest things are sold in the early hours, which attracts the most colourful parisian to those markets in the early hours. You can find a listing at "evous". Search ...

There are countless places you could go but the paradox is that looking for the “authentic” side of the city is a very touristy thing to do in itself. A few ideas nonetheless: Do a visit with a Paris Greeter or a balade urbaine in Seine-Saint-Denis. Take the RER to the cité des 4000 in La Courneuve (a prominent example of grand ensemble or chemin de grue ...
