It was not easy to pack for Thailand the first time I went. I wanted bright colors to match the country’s vibrancy but light materials to handle the humid heat. There's packing advice for the backpacking harem pant crowd and for the resortware beach goers. But I was on an itinerary that was a mix: some city life, a few days in the countryside, and a weekend at the beach.

Add to it that I was traveling to Thailand during monsoon season, when the country is wettest and most humid. And I was visiting a lot of traditional temples and palaces, so I had to adhere to dress codes (skirts below knee, closed shoes, and no shoulders showing) while still having materials light enough that I wasn’t going to suffocate. I followed Koh Samui Sunset's advice on what fabrics to pack and then I went for it. I dressed conservative for the first part of the trip and, for the weekend at the beach, packed the same things I'd take to Hawaii or Cuba
