Wat Wear

On all previous trips to Thailand have packed and worn long trousers when visiting any place of religious significance.

In an attempt to cut back on 'stuff' and generally travel lighter; my question is...Would a sarong suffice for said long duds at same time show appropriated respect and be culturally acceptable to Thais.

Many Thanks

A long sarong is perfect for covering legs and staying cool whilst visiting temples and you'll probably find many people doing the same thing.

Yes sarong is perfectly fine - last trip my gf carried one with her just in case we stumbled upon an interesting looking temple.

By the way, great title to your post!
