Thailand in March - cotton/linen or synthetic wicking fabric?

Jump to last reply

We will be in Thailand and Siem Reap in late March, early April. We are from the Pacific NW so anticipating how to deal with the heat and humidity. What do you recommend as the best to keep cool - natural fibers such as cotton and linen or synthetic wicking fabrics?

While I'm at it - has anyone used the clothes that have DEET on them - I was told by a salesperson at Eddie Bauer that those are only done on synthetic fabrics because the Deet will eat through the natural fibers.

Even though we are not going until March I expect now might be an easier time to find these items than in Jan./Feb. so am asking now.

Thanks for your help!!
