Know Before You Go
Modesty in clothing should be observed. Women should cover their arms when visiting mosques. Bring comfortable walking shoes for sightseeing and walking on desert sand. Sneakers are needed and no open sandals as it is sandy. Sunglasses as well as hats and scarves are recommended as protection against the strong sun. No shorts in the cities and women should never wear sleeveless blouses or shorts at any time. Beaches are like beaches all over the world, much more casual and laid back so shorts can be worn. While at hotels, wear a cover wrap to/from the pool if you have to go through the hotel to reach it.
