What to Wear in Myanmar in DecemberThings to wear in Myanmar in December
Packaging for Burma
As I was getting ready for our journey to Myanmar (Burma), I was not sure what clothing to have. Now that I have a good understanding of what works and what doesn't, I thought I would part it! Unless otherwise, it will be a reminder of what I should be bringing when I come back to Myanmar one of these days (I really look forward to returning!).
Don't be alarmed, gents, there are a few hints for you at the end of the article. There was a little issue when I was getting ready to go to Myanmar; I went to Beijing in the winters to buy hot attire. So I didn't really buy anything special for this part of the journey (I think that's not a big deal!) and only took clothing I already had (although I ordered many new swimsuits for the Thai stage of our vacation online).
While we went to Myanmar to Thailand, for this position I will only speak about what I needed for Myanmar. Myanmar's population does not really wear insightful clothing or short. I was wearing flip flop (thongs/sandals) and tom's shoes - I was wearing them as well and they were indispensable for sliding on and off at the temple.
Bulk blacks shorts made of wool - This was a last-minute order and I was so glad I had them. Vest / fuel tops - I used to wear them a great deal with my'beach pants' - but ALWAYS with a shawl that covered my belly. It was a very nice look and it felt right in the area!
Tunica Top - It was actually a stretch of stretch fabric I had purchased for Thailand, but it worked really well over my tights in Burma. Shawls and pashminas - indispensable to protect yourself for the temple and simply to walk aroundsuitability. This was also convenient for the heat, as Myanmar can get quite cool on December nights and early-morning.
Denim and hood - these were indispensable for Myanmar in December! Echinacea - I haven't worn it all the while, but it was useful for our cruise from Mandalay to Bagan and our days in the wine-cover. Sunglasses - Necessary for sunshine in Myanmar. Handkerchiefs, disinfectants, wet wipes - I always keep these things with me and you will need them for the toilet visits in Myanmar.
I wish I had had more lightweight trouser. You know what I mean? I adore the pajama trouser with a pattern (or whatever you call it. You know what I mean??) and waistcoat with a passionina look. In Bangkok I got some beautiful ones, but it was a little too lat for Myanmar.
Warm clothing for a good night's rest - I would have liked to have some beautiful trousers for a good night's rest or relaxation in the hotel. It is a little cool in December at midnight and early in the morning. Short - A woman in Myanmar may find it a little out of place to wear a pair of short trousers and is not permitted to go to a temple if she is worn.
I' ve already bought them for Thailand, but I probably thought that I would wear them in Myanmar sometime - I didn't. Everybody (male, feminine, young and old) is wearing it in Burma, so while I obviously didn't interfere, I didn't felt stupid and disguised either.
Guy can get away with knee-length pants and a normal short-sleeved T-shirt around Myanmar and the temple. The most important hints for stuffing Myanmar (Burma). Of course I also took toilet articles and electronic, but I jumped over this part as they weren't really Myanmar-specifically. I would definitely advise a woman to wear longer pants and a shawl.
Have a look at my other contributions to Myanmar (Burma): Which are your most important travelling articles (clothing or other)? Do you have beautiful pajama trousers with a pattern? You know what I'm talkin' about when I say pajama trousers, or did I just make that up?!
