|Typical attire for lunch at the beachfront restaurant - no shirt, no shoes, no problem|
While it is somewhat less common in Bangkok, here on Ko Pha Ngan, in the southern islands of Thailand, local businesses frequently have a sign posted outside, kindly requesting patrons remove their shoes (which mostly just means slipping out of your flip-flops and leaving them wherever you happened to step out of them).
|Just doing a little shopping in town, stocking up on sunscreen|
Even when there is no sign, it is perfectly acceptable to enter an establishment, especially when entering directly from the beach, without shoes on your feet. I simply love this!
|Walking down the beach to drinks and dinner for the evening, no purse, no shoes. :-)|
|Sitting at the Flip Flop Pharmacy Bar, indoors. It's surprising difficult taking not-totally-weird photos of your feet!|
And now, I just need to ditch my watch...
