If you're planning to go to Thailand, here's a few tips that you may want to consider about what you should wear during your trip. I’m using my personal travel experience to give you a brief packing guide on your outfits.
The weather in Thailand is generally marked by three seasons: rainy season, hot season, and cool season. By the time I visit, which is end of May, the climate was most likely hot and humid (hot season). In Thailand, there are some tourist attractions which may require certain type of outfits, so don't forget to always pack according to your planned activities.
What I wear in Thailand:
My Packing List (4 Days 3 Nights)
- 4 tops: 3 sleeveless tops, 1 blouse
- 3 bottoms: 1 midi skirt, 1 skinny jeans, 1 shorts
- 2 outerwear: 1 cardigan, 1 blazer
- 2 dresses: 1 little black dress, 1 printed mini dress
- 2 footwear: 1 flat sandals, 1 wedges
- 2 sleepwear
- 6 pairs of underwear
- Accessories: sunhat, sunglasses, jewelry (necklace, bracelet, earring)
General Packing Tips
- Wear sunglasses, sunhat, and plenty of sunscreen.
- Pack loose fitting, lightweight clothing that breathes well and dries quickly such as silk, cotton, or linen to keep you cool.
- Pack at least one long-sleeved shirt for extra coverage from the sun at day and cool wind at night, mosquitoes and unwanted stares.
- Opt for midi or maxi skirts, below the knee.
- Sandals are quite practical because some places expect you to remove your shoes before entering.
Things To Avoid
- If you plan to visit temple or other sacred site, shorts, mini skirt, and sleeveless shirt are not recommended or you may offend the local people.
- Unless you go to party at evening, it's always best to avoid dangerously high heels.
- Don't go crazy with your make-up during the day, the sun will most likely melt everything.
