Tips on Acclimatising to a Hotter Climate

Anyone got any tips?

I've been doing a bit more higher intensity cardio as this makes me hotter and I will then be a bit more used to the heater of Thailand etc.

If you are fitter does that mean you will have a lower body temperature?

If you are fit it takes longer for you to get hot when exercising, why is this?

Cheers.

    Not sure if fitness has anything to do with temperature.I always thought it was sweating that controlled your temperature.The more you sweat the more efficient your body is at cooling itself.

    When i lived in Thailand i never did anything to try and acclimatise,just let nature take it's course.I wore loose cotton t-shirt and shorts and drunk plenty of water to combat dehydration.It will always feel hot no matter how long you live there.You never get used to it really.

    Not yet my man, two more weeks.

    I thought the fitter you were the less you sweat?

    I remember when I started kick boxing I would be all red faced and sweating like a blind lesbian in a fish mongers but after a few weeks this would happen less often.

    Fitter = less out of breath = less hot and bothered ?

    I always sweat heavily no matter how fit i am.Although it is probably alcohol causing it.

    How long you there for and where are you staying?.

    Gonna be well humid and sweaty as you are bang in the rainy season.Rain stops in November usually.

    Got a 12 month visa so up to 12 months I guess possibly two years.

    Staying in Bangkok.  Will be looking to do some muay thai out there but not at a camp, just a local place in Bangkok if I can find one.

    You have to explore a bit mate.Bangkok will do your head in after a while.It is a great place but will drive you insane.A week is about the most i can take.The traffic,the smog,the dearer prices all make me glad to escape from there.Bloody hot as well being built up.

    Have a good time though buddy.

    From my research they do the standard tourist visa which is 30 days.

    Then there is the 90 day one and then there is the multiple entry non-immigration visa type O which I got.  It last 12 month from date of issue but you have to leave the country every 90 days then come straight back in again and get it stamped for the next 90 days.  If you do this just before the end of the 12 months you in effect get a 15 month visa as the 90 days are added on.  Once that is expired you have to go to Aus or UK (maybe other places do it?) and apply for another one from a Thai embassy in that country.  I think you can keep doing it but you are at the mercy of the person doing the visa that day.

    If you want a work you need a work permit which your employer must apply for on your behalf and these are hard to get for anything apart from teaching.

    I will be staying in Bangkok as that's where my bird will be working and our (her) apartment is.  Obviously will get away at the weekend and holidays but will be mainly bangkok based mon-fri.

    How did you get an 'O' visa?.

    Are you married to her?.

    They normally only issue them to foreign spouses.

    Not married but her school wrote a supporting letter saying I was going with her.

    I thought O was for friends and family?

    O is usually for spouses or for kids born abroad to a Thai parent but only has a foreign nationality,not dual nationality.Maybe the letter did the job and you were lucky to get a decent visa authoriser processing it.

    Thai immigration staff are notoriously known as bastards.

    I could only get a 6 month visa.Two entry's of 3 months.You get stamped for 30 days by passport control then when that expires you go to the local immigration office and for 500 baht they stamp for the next 2 months.To activate the 2nd 3 month visa you need to leave the country.A visa trip to Cambodia is the cheapest and easiest.That gives you 30 days and you repeat the immigration part after 30 days.Then you need to leave Thailand and get a new visa.

    Bleeding fcuk about!!.

    I'd did nothing to acclimatise when i worked in the region. Other than avoiding training in the middle of the day. One squat session at 1pm was enough to get that message through lol

    Training was duly moved to evening when it was only 30 degrees C.

    I probably never fully acclimatised in some respects (or at least slowed the process down) as had air con in my room going every night. Bliss!

    It cools a little at night but it gets more humid.Never used air con in my apartment,it had a ceiling fan.Preffered that.Hotel rooms usually only have air con so i just used it when having sex.

    I had a room in either the athletes building or coaches quarters at the Uni were I was working and both thankfully had excllent air con.

    Yes it does get that bit more humid at night. It also didn't help that the gym was essentially a converted large garage. Just some fans that moved the hot air about. Mind you I could only imagine what the student gym was like. Placed along the shanty town that propogated along the walls on the unis. Small with corregated roof. Nice sweat box!
