How to dress in Thailand temples

Before visiting a temples or a palace in Thailand make sure you have the right clothing. Especially important for a visit at the Royal Palace, which can cost you an hour to get a sarong and then need to queue up again to give it back.

Do not wear the below cloth and you good to go.

  • Short skirts & shorts or even shortened trousers (you should always wear full length or at least covering the knees). Skirts that fall below the knee are permitted.
  • Tight fitting trousers such as leggings.
  • See-through clothing! (You will be surprised that some people like to visit a Sacred place half naked.)
  • Clothing that has holes in, such as ripped jeans etc.
  • Vests or any kind of top without sleeves.
  • Any kind of top with sleeves rolled up (While visiting keep your sleeves down… it’s that simple)
  • Sportswear of any kind.
  • Sweat shirts or sweat pants.

Recommended clothing

Perhaps unexpectedly you can wear sandals and flip-flops (in a suitable design). However it’s best to wear light full shoes for comfort when you’re walking around during a Sightseeing Tour.

Wear light cloth with long sleeves and long trousers or skirts. In case you prefer to wear short, simply bring a Sarong, which always fits in a your bag.
