Hair Colour

Postby jessplant » Mon May 06, 2013 1:06 am

Hello,
I am going on one of the Indochina Discovery trips in late May. Currently my hair is permanently dyed a darkish purple colour, and I was wondering if it would be advisable to change it to a more natural colour instead?
Thanks!

Hi
I'd leave it. I think by now that most people in those countries have seen Western tourists look far weirder than purple hair (eg multiple facial piercings, Betty Boop tattoos, enormous ear spacers :D ). As long as what you look like or wear isn't offensive you'll be fine.
Fortunately for us Western tourists they are a very tolerant lot. :)

You might get a few stares but that happens to all Westerners in that region. Go for it.
