Best fabrics for hot weather

Jump to last reply

I'm heading to Mae Hong Son, Thailand - for work - at the hottest time of year, and I'm trying to figure out what kind of clothes to bring for wearing every day at the office. Dress code will be somewhere around business casual I think, so no suits required on a regular basis but also no tank tops and shorts.

In movies based in places like Africa people are always wearing linen - but I have read that synthetic fabrics are better because sweat can evaporate. Thoughts? It would be nice not to walk around with sweat stains all day, so what fabrics are good for hiding sweat?

Sorry if this is a little...unpleasant to discuss but I imagine it's something other travelers have thoughts on/are curious about!

thanks,
