I've never worn shorts in Bangkok. I wear skirts. Happy Travels!

The women may want to bring a sun umbrella instead of a hat. My wife finds that her hair gets messed up and sweaty with a hat but the umbrella does a good job of shielding the top half of the body from the sun and her hair is not messed up and sweaty.

I've been away for the weekend, so am late weighing in on these questions.

I wear long pants or long skirts or long dresses in Bangkok, always with a short sleeve. I want all the clothes I take to be appropriate for entering wats. I have purchased long, loose cotton dresses in a number of markets that are perfect for Bangkok. (I once wrote that I took long dresses to Bangkok and someone misinterpreted that I meant formal wear! Let me be clear that is not what I mean.) I also wear either sandals or flats that are cool, wel-ventilated.

As for jewelry, I having been buying from SJ International for some 20 years. They are excellent for ready-made jewelry, cutomm jewelry and loose stones. I've bought all of those over the years. They are huge and have a wonderful selection. If you use my name (Kathie from Seattle is adequate) you'll get the "wholesale" price. The contatc info for SJ has been posted here many times, do a search for it (sorry, I don't have the card with me right now).
