Male tourists often feel a bit unfashionable in Burma, where most men wear traditional wrap-around skirts called “longyi
”. As tourism booms
, more and more foreigners have been spotted sporting longyi, to the delight – and amusement – of locals.
The newly-launched Facebook page “Tourists Wearing Longyis
” features photos of foreigners looking more or less comfortable in their new garments. The page’s administrators gently make fun of them, and say they hope this will amuse locals and visitors alike.
