My husband and I are visiting South India arriving in Chennai this New Years. I thought that it would be nice to buy a Salwar Kameez (or more :-D) for travelling while we are in India. I have a couple of questions now: As it is for travelling, the Salwar Kameez shouldn't be too fancy or expensive. I had a look around and good street markets/shops seem to be this areas:
- Kothaval Chavady – Flower Bazar area
- Purasawakkam area
Is that right or do you recommend any other places? Also, I'm quite a tall woman (177cm). Will I be able to buy something of the stalls? We didn't plan to stay that long in Chennai to get any tailoring done. I am also not very sure what a normal price for a robust but still nice looking Salwar Kameez is. Any suggestions?
Would I also be able to find a nice looking Saree in these areas? What are the normal price ranges for Sarees?
Many thanks for any answers!
