What to wear
Light and loose fitting clothing made of natural fibres is best for the summer months while an extra layer such as a jumper or light jacket should be added for winter evenings .
Women in malls, government buildings and mosques should cover their shoulders and knees and men should cover chests and wear shorts below the knee. This won't apply within compounds, by the swimming pool or at the beach.
