Advice on Dress Code

You should aim to wear clothing that is lightweight, comfortable and slightly more modest than Western standards. Try to cover legs and wear tops that cover shoulders.

Dressing for the weather

We recommend bringing sun lotion and clothes that you can layer so that you are comfortable, keeping in mind 30 degree celcius temperature.

Please note; the temperatures and conditions above are historically accurate for this time of year but climate change can impact the seasons so you may experience uncharacteristic conditions during the trip which are out of our control. We recommend checking the forecast before packing so you know what to expect and bringing clothes that you can layer and be comfortable whatever the weather.

Student dress code

Students will need to bring their school uniform to wear at the Opening and Closing Ceremony. If your school does not have a school uniform, then students should bring something smart (shirt/blouse, smart trousers/skirt) to wear to this.

If your students are taking part in the Student Cultural Performance, please bring any costumes required for the performance.

During the rest of week, students can dress casually and appropriately for adventure activities, but please remember to bring appropriate sportswear for the 3k run.

Students should also bring something to wear to dinner in the evenings, party wear or cultural costumes/traditional clothing are encouraged!

Adult dress code

Adults should generally observe a smart/casual dress code when participating in the adult programme.

Adults will have an opportunity to discover some of the local sights so we recommend bringing appropriate/comfortable clothing for sightseeing.
