Keeping Cool

Written by Rima, 1st Jan 2008

In hot humid climates like in South East Asia (e.g. Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand), temperatures typically range from 25 degrees C at night to 38 degrees C in the day time.  Not only is it hot, it is humid.  Many of my western friends are soaking from perspiration after 15 minutes outside!  Although I try to push them to endure the heat, the profuse sweating and beet root red faces becomes even more disconcerting.  Keeping cool in hot climates is high on the agenda.  So what is available to keep you cool?
