Long shorts and T-shirts are fine for both sexes in the cities, but when visiting mosques that are active, all visitors should wear pants that are below the knee, and tops that cover shoulders. Women should also wear a headscarf. While on this tour, we’ll be traveling in remote locations that are not frequently visited by tourists. Locals are modest in dress therefore it is probable that you will feel more at ease wearing conservative clothes.
