Whats recommended to bring to the temple:
White, comfortable clothes (consider that Thailand is a hot and humid country – you will have to wash your clothes daily. You need at least 2 or 3 sets of clothes). If you have no white ones you could also wear brown.
We do not provide white clothes for the students anymore, so please bring your own.
They can be bought at the temple shop. One set (1 pair of trousers and a shirt temple style) cost about 300 baht.
If you think you will have problems with not having a meal after 12:00 p.m. – you can bring some soy milk or juice, which doesn't need refrigeration. (Please consider if you have food in your hut there is a danger that ants are going to trouble you.)
for new years retreat it is good if you can bring your own sleeping bag.
If not necessary (because you travel and have no other place to leave these items) try not to come with lots of jewelry and other high valuable items.
You can get a locker to lock in valuables but it is better not to bring such things.
