Things to wear in Burma
We advise men and females to focus on trekking/outdoor apparel and relatively soft but robust hiking boots. Prevent gnat stings, especially during the days, as Dengue fevers are a common distrub. Use long sleeved and pants and a good insecticide or fly repellant. It is a good option for the hide as it regulates your natural heat.
Keeps you warmer in the coldness, drains away humidity when it's too warm, and doesn't keep odors out - even after use. A good pair of hiking footwear with knuckle supports is a must, as is a convenient shoe changing. It may be necessary to wear these second pairs of footwear when you get bubbles, so make sure you select with caution.
The sturdy bottom makes them ideal for walking in the city and taking a shower. You' ll need to take off your boots before you enter a Buddhist site or house and with many Buddhist shrines you can see in Bagan, a set of up and down slipping slippers or flip-flops, making your lifestyle easy (try hooter boots, for a variety of different lifestyles and they're surprisingly comfortable).
Myanmar is very old-fashioned and physical clothing should be averted. Do not take the trousers home - you will not be comfortable wearing them and you will be staring at. You do not need to be made aware of any special things, see our recommended packaging for our cloakroom. November, December, January and February are the drought seasons with the least temperature and rain.
June, July, August, September and October are the months of the year, so no tourist peaks, but when you leave, be ready and wrap a light cloak. You don't have to be warmer, you can lie under it. The Yangon (Rangoon), Mandalay and Bagan are all year round heat; light, loose-fitting garments made from nature fibers such as wool, fabric or canvas keep you cool.
Shan highland, Inle Lake and Kalaw may experience freezing winters in the cooler months of the year (November, December, January, February and March), so we recommend wearing hot clothing such as soft sweaters, cardigans, fleece or lightweight cottons. Inle Lake offers a lot of fly control - long-sleeved shorts are the perfect way to protect you from the daytime rays and insect stings at all.
Also for the highland in the cold seasons, take something hot to go to bed, as the rooms are not fully warmed. When hiking or living in a more modest lodging, take a camping sack, bed net, microfiber comforter and your own lavatory wad. The use of a pocket or a softer backpack is a more convenient choice than heavy cases when traveling around the countryside, and the use of pack dice can help keep your stuff neat and tight.
Search for sandpaper painting or parasols and try to go to the shop instead of the shop. You may need a trip adaptor and a power transformer to use electric equipment if your equipment is not rated for 230VAC. They' re unbelievably impoverished and very thankful for everything and your locals' leaders and riders depend to a large degree on the advice they get.
When you want to give more back, think about purchasing books or other things there instead of taking them with you and talking to your community staff and guides to find out what they really need. Perhaps you take post cards from where you are living to show them to the locals; they will be as interested in you as you are in them.
