  • hi, 
    I'm an Indian. And I'm planning to do my higher studies in canada. I got admission in one college at london, onatario, Canada. Since I'm not very sure about the culture and lifestyle of people of over there, can you please help me with some suggestions...... 
    like the pattern of dressing.  what does students generally wear at college if there is no uniform? jeans?
    Boots or shoes, should I buy a pair boots from India, 
    type of moisturizers etc. 

  • Jeans are a good place to start, as students in North America tend to dress very casually. Just keep in mind that it gets VERY cold in the winter (December to February), so you will most definitely need boots, a warm coat, gloves, and a hat.
  • Thank u Anya
  • Hi Nikitha,
    The thing to remember about Canada is that the seasons are so dramatically different! Winters are freezing and summers are hot, so you need to pack clothes for the full spectrum of weather. I was surprised in Canada both by the heat and the cold, so go prepared. Good luck!
  • I have family in Ontario and I have bought boots and winter coats in Canada even though I live in the UK winter in Canada is bitter cold and the Canadian clothing in my opinion is far more suited to the climate.
  • Very useful post. Sometimes we need suggestion from others to have a happy travel. 
  • Hey guyz

    Im done with all basic things which were mentioned above, for instance My documents,Clothes,Medicines,Thermals.

  • If you're going to be attending a university I'm assuming you have a place to stay, so I can't imagine you would need a sleeping bag.

    Thanks to sharing your useful views.
  • I already put my list on couple of years ago, but now I have found a solar charger, very small that I can use to charge my tablet, mobile phone. It comes in really really handy!! Especially when there is no electricity. The other thing I always have with me is a small solar torch. It lasts for a few days and all I need to do is pop it in the sun for a couple of hours and it's ready to use again.

Howdy, Stranger!
