What to wear

Light and loose fitting clothing made of natural fibres are best for the summer months whereas warm clothing such as a jumper or light jacket is needed for the evenings during the winter months.

Women in malls, government buildings and mosques should cover their shoulders and knees out of respect to the local culture, while men shouldn't show bare chests and shorts should be worn below the knees. This doesn't apply within your compound, by the swimming pool or at the beach.
