Are there any clothing specifications for entering the temples?
When entering temples you will need to cover your shoulders and knees by wearing sleeves and long trousers/skirts.
Loose, lightweight, long clothing is both respectful and cool in areas of predominantly hot climate. In many rural areas women will need to wear modest clothing even to swim. Singlets, tank tops and topless sunbathing are all frowned upon. When visiting religious sites men often need to wear long trousers and women a long skirt or sarong. Please always check with your pack leader and be respectful of others.
