Women's clothes for burma

Jump to last reply

Heading to Burma next week, Rangon, Inle Lake, Mandalay etc. and I note on Internet the weather is hot,80's - 90's F already. I'm a bit puzzled about modest wear for women. Are short sleeve T-shirts OK ? Do shirts have to be high-nicked or are v-necks OK if not too low? Can one wear short sleeves and put on a light wrap to go into temples? (and yes, I load on the sunscreen)
Re skirts, is just below the knee Ok or do they need to be longer? (Have pants also of course). I'm in the throes of packing and deciding what to take...
I do note cooler temps at night, will take sweater/jacket but daytime wear?? Advice please.
