Zappos Packs | Chiang Mai, Thailand
Chiang Mai, Thailand
A beautiful ancient city deep in the mountains of Northern Thailand, Chiang Mai is a favorite destination to seasoned travelers and adventure seekers. It’s home to hundreds of Buddhist temples, amazing wildlife, and an up and coming food and art scene. A culture immersed in tradition, there are certain dress codes to be aware of. Also, be prepared for hot and humid conditions along with occasional summer rain storms - a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes.
Pack for a day long adventure in the sun with elephants
Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai is a sanctuary that allows visitors to take elephants for a walk through the forest and then bathe them in the muddy river. Pack sturdy walking sandals, a hat, and a change of clothes after getting wet!
Dress to respect - visiting ancient temples in Chiang Mai
The dress code to enter a temple in Thailand is very strict. Make sure to wear clothing that covers your shoulders, cleavage, and knees, or bring a shawl to cover up. Another option is to rent a sarong on site.
Protect yourself from mosquitoes
Mosquito bites may not be completely avoidable but you can help prevent getting eaten alive by these pests by wearing light-colored clothing, as well as long sleeve shirts and pants with insect repellent technology if you’re in the jungle and during sunrise or sunset.
Shoes to navigate unpaved terrain and summer rains
There are a lot of unpaved roads in Chiang Mai so comfortable shoes are a must. A smart choice would be a pair of flat sandals or slipper-like shoes that are made of rubber or plastic that will keep your feet dry after a sudden rain storm.
