temple attire

Posted by ib2mix on 21/6/2006 at 14:40

or as a matter of fact...attire in Thailand in general....

must i wear long pants to the temples? Can i wear cropped pants...capri pants? pants that go past the knee? I feel like it will be too hot and miserable to wear long pants. Of course, I will wear a shirt with some type of sleeve...but someone please give me some advice as to what to wear in SE Asia in general. All I have are tank tops and shorts and skirts (that go to the knee) What about the big cities? Can I wear tank tops there? help!

hi ib2mix,

Outside of the temple, tank tops, skirts etc are fine.

In the temple there are two main issues, you need to cover your shoulders and closed-back sandals are preferred. The general rule of conservative dress is preferred, though outside of the Grand Palace people will let you in regardless -- it's amazing some of the clothes people wear!

General advice for clothing -- light cotton, loose fitting clothes are the best.
