  • Wear dark or colourful shirts.
  • Stay together. No one should wander off alone. Use the buddy system.
  • Stay hydrated. Drink lots of water.
  • Wear sunblock and hats and sunglasses
  • Be aware that Thai people will often come up and touch you and smear powder on you. People should be aware of this and avoid.
  • Please be aware of the amount of alcohol you consume. We want you to have fun but most importantly we want you to be safe.
  • Mike is No. 1 target for ice cold water.
