weather, summer, raining, and winter, but in reality, we feel like we have hot,
very hot, and extremely hot. We feel like Thailand move
closer to the sun every year. Your body might not get used
to the heat and humidity here, especially if you come from a
cooler climate than Thailand. After that long hour flight
on your first arrival day, or getting some jet lag. Wearing the right kind of clothing can make such a big difference. The more comfortable,
appropriate clothing, the more you will enjoy our beautiful city from morning to evening
without getting tired, or exhausted from the heat very easily. So here are my special seven tips for you! One, avoid any kind of thick material. You don’t want to wear this kind of outfit like sweater, jeans, or any kind of thick, heavy material that you
bring from your winter home. Two, avoid double layer clothing
when visit Grand Palace. You want to wear other flexible
clothing at other places, but before you enter to the Grand Palace, and you don’t feel like
want to change the clothing, so you decide to add a double layer on your top, like this. I would not recommend this, because you will feel overheat, sweat, and feel uncomfortable
throughout your walk. The best way is to wear one layer, and you can always bring extra clothing to change any time when
you visit other temples. Three, choose lightweight or
breathable material clothing like cotton, linen, or rayon
which are the perfect material for our hot and humid weather here. Four, wear light color clothing and avoid dark color clothing. Light color clothing
will help you stay cooler by repelling the sun. Dark color clothing will
absorb the heat very well, and make you feel hotter. You can get this comfortable clothing at the Grand Palace entrance, and local shops or markets
almost every where. There are many options size, with a lightweight of material
for an affordable price between 100-300 Baht, depending
on the size and material. Five, convertible pants is a great option, and very convenient to visit
the palace and other temples. You can easily just zip on, and zip off, and it’s perfect for men and women. Six, good walking shoes. Even though you can wear any kind of shoes to visit the palace and temple, you will surprise how much you will walk to see the beautiful city on tour. So, sneaker is the perfect
shoes for your adventures. Avoid wearing high heels, or
shoes with little to no grips, because you can easily to slip at the wet area during the rain. Seven, be sure to bring
hat, sunglasses, sunscreen to prevent a sunburn. The UV index here is quite high. And make sure you drink a lot of water throughout the day to stay hydrated. Remember to have fun and
enjoy your time in Thailand. Thank you very much
