The temperatures during the day are quite hot throughout the year and the sun is burning mercilessly down at you. You should bring a large drinking water bottle and you must protect your skin from sunburn. During the day it is best to wear long trousers and a shirt with long sleeves. Also you should wear a hat. (Thais usually cover every part of their body with clothes if they have to remain in the sun for long.) During rainy season, from August to November, a rain coat or poncho may be appropriate.
While bamboo rafting you will become a little wet. It is best to wear shorts and sandals (if you have) while rafting.
