What should I wear for a hot air balloon ride in Goa?

It's important to dress comfortably and seasonally appropriate when going on a hot air balloon ride in Goa. Here are some suggestions:

Dress in layers. When you're in the air, the temperature can fluctuate quickly, so it's best to wear clothes that you can easily take off or put on as needed.

To protect yourself from the sun's rays, it's best to wear sunscreen and a hat.

Warm clothes: Even when it's hot outside, it can get cold up in the air, so you should wear warm clothes like a light sweater or jacket.

Don't wear loose clothes: Don't wear clothes that are too loose because they could get caught in the balloon's fabric.
