Dress codes vary slightly according to the size of company and industry sector. It is probably safest to err on the side of caution and wear standard, smart business attire.
Men can wear dark suits, shirts and ties and women will not feel out of place in conservative business suits (although trousers tend only to be worn on informal occasions.) It is very important to be well dressed and designer labels are impressive. Anybody who is successful would want to appear successful!
Bear in mind that it can be very hot and humid in the summer and that typhoons are common. Ensure that you have the relevant weight and type of clothing to meet the climatic conditions you will encounter.
