I may go to Thailand in a week on a press trip--starting from Chiang Mai and ending in Bangkok. Do you have any suggestions on clothes? I know it's pretty conservative there, so I plan on bringing long silk skirts and pants, but will I need warm clothes this season for the north?
I'm a bit concerned about the top too because I don't even own a bra (other than sports bras), do they really find it offensive when a woman doesn't wear a bra? or do they just think it's strange (like in the US)?

Hi there. I went to Bangkok and Phuket 3 years ago and I did not think thai people were very conservative about dressing. Especially teens who dress up very modern. The only places you need to cover up, meaning to wear long sleeves and long skirts or pants, are temples.

If you're going to temples and all that, it's best to keep your shoulders and legs covered. Other than that, you can wear whatever you want. :smile:

Yeah, they aren't exactly happy about clothing like sleeveless tops and boobtubes and shorts, but normal t-shirts etc. aren't a problem when visiting temples. I do remember taking shoes off when you enter the temple.
kerosundae, yeah, they dress conservatively in Thailand. I did notice that Thais tend to dress neatly, and no skimpy things. I find that cotton dresses, pants and tops are best, what the humidity. I hope you get to go to Thailand. If you do, enjoy your trip.
