Visitors should be mindful of what they wear when visiting Buddhist and Hindu temples. Temples have specific regulations however generally one is expected to be dressed modestly and in certain instances dressed in white. Be mindful to remove hats and shoes before entering a temple. A knee-length dress is appropriate. Headgear and footwear must be removed prior to entering Buddhist and Hindu shrines. Swimwear is not acceptable in public places. Also, nudism and topless bathing by females is prohibited.
It would be useful to bring mosquito and insect repellent.
Sunscreen & Sunglasses
Bring plenty of Sun-tan for long blissful hours on the beach; but sunscreen lotion is a must as the sun can be harsh during the dry season and in the bright tropical sun.
Videoing & Photography
Photography should be limited to traditional tourist sites. However, posing alongside or with religious statues is not permitted. Some religious sites may require prior permission. Videoing and photography of military and governmental buildings is strictly prohibited.
