A sarong is an essential article of clothing in many countries in Southeast Asia. It is made of a brightly colored cotton fabric. The traveler may wrap a sarong as a beach cover up. A long sarong makes a wonderful evening gown for a night on the town. Discover how to wear and buy a sarong. Be prepared for your Southeast Asia travel adventure.
For a skirt, hold the sarong lengthwise and wrap it around the waist. One wrap around gives the wearer a side slit. Wrap the sarong twice around the waist for more coverage. Tie the two ends in a knot or pin them together.
For a halter dress, hold the sarong by the two top corners lengthwise behind your upper back. Pull the two corners under the arms and bring them to the front. Overlap the fabric. Tie the two corners behind the neck. Adjust the sarong to cover the chest completely.
The fabric for a sarong is for sale in any market in Southeast Asia. Buy a sarong or two in the market. The women will gladly teach you how to wear a sarong.
