It is a blend of jackets, quotidian khaki, trousers, skirts, clothes and hiking trousers suitable for your day-to-day work. In many places, such as the temple and the pagoda, the visitor must have knee and shoulder covers; therefore long trousers or coats and sleeved tunics are necessary. The majority of places of worship also demand that boots and stockings be taken off.
We recommend sunhat ( (although they cannot be used in some temples), as well as a lightweight raincover, especially during the sundowner. Stable, comfy hiking boots with good ankles are very recommendable, as there are a large number of hikes in most places. People are asked to take off their boots and stockings in certain places, so you may choose to take off boots that are easy to take off.
