What to carry for footwear

Walking in Thailand is a must for every tourist and one of the best ways to see the country. So one must remember to bring along comfortable footwear. However, since it rains a lot in the country, rubber or plastic sandals or flip-flops are advisable. High heels or boots will be very difficult to walk in as the sidewalks are said to be in bad conditions perennially. One must remember to take their shoes off when entering a temple or someone’s house as it is a custom there. Walking barefoot in the country is strictly against the rule, as mentioned in leading travel portals, and considered offensive according to the dress code in Thailand.
