Dress code

Retreatants are requested to wear modest, loose-fitting clothing at all times. It is not necessary to wear all white clothing, although a white top and dark pants are appreciated while staying at KowTahm.

Clothing should cover the shoulders and the midriff and the chest should not be exposed. Pants and dresses should be loose-fitting and cover the knees whilst standing and sitting.

Loose fisherman pants can be bought in Thong Sala village for about ฿150.

Women may find a light shawl handy in dry season when it can get quite hot and humid.

We recommend bringing light, loose clothing, that’s easy to wash and is comfortable for meditation.

Clothing should not be transparent.

It’s recommended to bring shoe wear that is easily removable for ex. flip-flops or sandals. The meditation hall is a no-shoe zone, this means you will have to take off your shoes and put them back every time you enter or leave the hall.

The same regulations are to be obeyed during our daily Mindful Yoga classes.
