    Best way to avoid sunburn near equator

    I am taking a trip to Thailand in March, which gets much stronger sun that in the States. I definitely plan on wearing sunblock but I'm not going to be wearing long sleeves & pants the whole time and I am concerned about sunburn. I am pale, but mostly by choice, and I don't burn immediately. When I was 19 and heading to Mexico, I jumped into a tanning bed a few times, not to create color but to get my skin ready for the onslaught. I know that's a bad option now, but I'm not sure what else I can do other than never go outside, never show any skin or face a sunburn. Help?
