What clothes to bring Xmas-New Year's

We'll be visiting Bangkok, Siem Reap, Chiang Mai and Singapore during Xmastime. What clothes should we bring? What shoes?

Cool and comfortable is the word. I use alot of J.Jill Linnen pants and blouses. Loose fitting , but nice looking , as you never know where you will end up for lunch. The hotel laundries can handle them easily. They are also appropriate for temples and palaces. I use a Teva ventura cork walking sandle. They go from morning thru dinner and into the evening, and available in a variety of colors. All the places you are going the same clothes can be worn. Maybe a sweater in Chaing Mai for the evenings, but a very light one. Have fun

Can my 14 y/o son wear shorts all day and night? Looking neat is a difficult for him (in fact, on the rare occasion he gets a haircut, he tells the hairdresser to cut "1/4 inch".

My 16 y/o daughter's American shorts-would they be too "short" and immodest? She can wear her capris instead.

The temperature during the X-Mas period could be quite cool especially in Chiang Mai. I would bring some light jackets. Shorts at night might not be practical since there will be mosquitos around.

Hi Ellen,
Wearing shorts all the time is fine. Except for Chiang Mai, the temparture will be well in the 100+ Farenheight range. It's also the monsoon season (slightly more rain) than rest of the year, but temperature still stays constant 100+.

Actually, your weather will be coller than 100 degrees.
In BKK, the avg. temp in December is 79, with avg high of 87 and low of 70.
In SiemReap, The avg high is 86, low of 67. In CM it's 82 and 59.
So, it's warm during the day and almost cool at night, especially in CM and SR. Plus, the humidity is less intense. We're also going at this time, to take advantage of the cooler weather. Enjoy.
