What should I pack for a trip to Thailand?

What to pack when visiting Thailand depends on the time of year you visit, which areas of the country you plan to visit and the activities you plan to undertake.  Thailand is a tropical country.  So, it does get extremely hot and humid but the northern highlands also have a sufficient elevation to be quite cool during the Winter.  However, in general, clothing suitable for hot weather is almost always advisable.  In the Winter months, the temperature can drop to 70°F (20° C).  So, layered clothing for the evenings and air-conditioned rooms can be helpful.  Bring a swimsuit if you plan to go to a beach or swimming pool.  It does rain in Thailand even during the "dry" season.  So, an umbrella may be essential.  Between the different islands, weather patterns can vary significantly.   So, be sure to check the local weather before your trip.  If you will be visiting temples, bring appropriate clothing, which is to say nothing too revealing, no sleeveless tops, no bare feet, etc.  Lastly, don't forget to bring a valid passport.
