Buddhist Temple dress code, as not to offend?

My sister and I will be visiting the Buddhist Temple near Lovina next month and we would not like to offend by wearing the incorrect clothing.

Other than wearing a sarong is there any other custom that we should observe, clothing or otherwise?

Thanks in advance

Just make sure you shoulders are covered and hire(donate) a sarong on the way in. Other than that remove your shoes when entering any buildings or temples.

Its a beautiful peaceful place that host mediation classes. And can get very hot and steamy.

You should not wear skimpy clothes. Shoulders should be covered so wear a shirt with sleeves or take a wrap to cover yourself. Your legs should be covered to just below the knee. You will be required to remove your shoes when entering the temple. There should no public displays of affection and you should be quiet.
