Know how to tell if someone’s a just-stepped-off-the-plane tourist in Bangkok? They’re the ones that look freshly dipped. The ones that are uneasy in wet clothing.
Acclimating can be not so fun, so here’s a tip for those of you getting ready to skip to hot climates:
Embrace your inner baby and powder up.
Baby powder, dusting powder, call it whatever you like, but use something and use it liberally. Powder will keep you dry, odour free and keep heat rash turned itchy-weird-tropical-topical-fungal-cooties at bay.
