Women's tourist clothing

Will be in Guangzhou, China for 2 days and then Thaiiand in November. I am a senior citizen traveling alone in China and on a tour in Thailand. Looking for suggestions regarding clothing. Sandals or shoes? Open toe, closed toe. Thinking that with the humidity I may only get one day out of pants. Wondering if skirts (midcalf or longer) is a better idea? Many skirts this year are maxi length. Wondering if I would look a bit strange walking around Guangzhou or Bangkok in a long skirt? Goal is to fit in (as much as an Caucasian can), be comfortable and safe and not have to wash lots of clothes.

There is nothing considered strange here in terms of clothing - male or female. Everything is ok as long as it is decent. Sports shoes and pants recommended because this is a huge polluted city with broken, uneven & dusty pavements. Light cotton clothes recommended as the heat & humidity are very severe.

Wear whatever you feel comfortable in.

Mid calf and full length skirts are fine. Open toe shoes or sandals are fine as well. In Bangkok there are always foreigners walking around so dont worry about not fitting in.

There is a good chance that, in November, humidity won't be a major problem.

Dress modestly and you won't stand out.

My daughters are traveling to Thailand and China this summer. After researching what to wear, they have decided on plain t-shirts, maxi skirts, knee length cargo shorts, teva like sandals, and slip on Sketcher's GOwalkers. Shoes from Kohl's and clothes from Walmart. Inexpensive and easy to sink wash then hang to dry in shower.
