The Way a Woman Dresses Affects Her Safety 

Curated by Evelyn Hannon, Founder, JourneyWoman

At JourneyWoman, we believe that the way a woman dresses as she moves around the world is very important.

  • It affects her safety.
  • It can make or break her travel adventure.
  • (And, if she packs too much, carrying her bags can make her very tired, very cranky and very vulnerable!)

Therefore, in true networking style, we’re asking you to offer other women the benefit of your experiences. Culturally correct clothing — What worked for you? What didn’t? How much did you pack or, how little? Any problems when you didn’t dress appropriately? Please tell all. Send your advice to [email protected]. We’ll post it and everyone else will benefit.

Travelling to a particular destination?

Simply click on the first letter of that country and you’re on your way to terrific “what-to-wear” tips. You may notice that some letters of the alphabet have been omitted. That’s because we haven’t received tips about countries beginning with those letters yet. However, we will add them as you send any new advice.

    When visiting any temple and the Grand Palace in Bangkok ( and probably any temple in the rest of Thailand), both men and women need to wear long pants that cover their ankles, closed toe shoes, and shirts that cover their forearms ( no tank tops) as a sign of respect. We were told that scarves that cover your arms or used as skirts were not acceptable although we did see some women dressed that way. Better to be safe and buy the light and inexpensive “harem” pants that are so comfortable!


We always strive to use real photos from our own adventures, provided by the guest writer or from our personal travels. However, in some cases, due to photo quality, we must use stock photography. If you have any questions about the photography please let us know.
