Heat in the evening

Just wondering if it's worth taking some long sleeved tops in case it's cold on an evening, traveling 31 march!

Cheers oldie

We never needed anything long sleeved at night but have observed some people - we assumed they were Italians ;) - who used a wrap when it was very windy and perhaps after it rained which meant your skin cooled down.

For us, it is always a question where can we find a breezy spot so we don't get too hot especially in open air restaurants with all the hot cooking going on ...

You will only be cold if your air conditioning in your room is too high! Long sleeves for the plane but absolutely not needed once u are there, don't even pack one just in case!

If you are acclimatised to Yorkshire weather then there is literally no chance you'll feel chilly!

It's about 28 degrees at night so I'd say no :-)

No you really wont need long sleeves. But do take a wrap, I take a couple of thin cashmere ones, one for the plane and i use it like a blanket, and one in my luggage, as my daughter tends to steal it when there ( she has hoodie for the plane).

I have never needed it outside in the evening in the Maldives, but I do need it in the room as my husband tends to have the aircon down low, so if in the room late afternoon, it can feel a bit chilly, however I would not want to wear long sleeves there either, just a vest top or beach dress with a pashmina over my shoulders.
