Dress appropriately

  • Some countries are very conservative, and hence it's important to dress appropriately, especially if you're traveling alone.

  • Avoid wearing revealing clothing, and opt for loose-fitting clothing that covers your shoulders and legs. (Only when entering religious or conservative zones)

  • It's also a good idea to carry a scarf or shawl to cover your head when visiting temples and other religious sites or sometimes in rural areas too.
