Etiquette

Shorts, short skirts or revealing clothing are not appropriate in Myanmar, especially when visiting temples or any religious site. Burma is a conservative Buddhist culture and improper dress can be offensive. Light, casual wear made of cotton is suitable for all climates. Some warm clothes are necessary if you plan to visit northern Burma or other hilly regions in the cold season. Sandals or slippers are convenient as the dress code for Buddhist religious buildings do not accept footwear including socks.

Do not hug or kiss in public places or touch anyone on the head. Accept or give things with your right hand as the left one is normally referred and used for hygiene purposes. Always ask or signal a request when you would like to take a photograph of people and await confirmation that it is OK. Sit lower than and do not touch or offer to shake hands with a monk.
