Dress code for temples?

Ancient temples swallowed by the jungle, rice paddies, local markets, stunning beaches, fiery cuisine, smoking incense at the feet of a golden Buddha, and the friendliest locals around.

Dress code for temples?

Postby i_schneider » Tue Jan 15, 2013 9:49 am

I'm doing the cambodia & laos mekong adventure next month. I'm trying to figure out what i need to pack. Are there any (for lack of a better term) "dress codes" for visiting temples or other sites along the way? Besides the typical no tank tops or short shorts... Do i need to pack long skirts? Thanks

My general rule is to cover knees and shoulders...so t-shirts and what we call "capri pants" in North America have been fine. Make sure shirts don't show the midriff or cleavage and you should be fine for temples.

I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list
