Clothes make the man

We love the warmth and the sun. But this doesn't entitle us to stroll through cities and sanctuaries in our beachwear.

  • Travellers should take care to dress appropriately in other cultures. Let yourself be guided by what locals wear.

  • It is often considered inappropriate and disrespectful for women to wear hot pants or tight tops. Cover your shoulders. Men shouldn't wear undershirts, and shorts are uncommon in many parts of the world.

  • Tantalising and provocative appearance and clothes are often met with incomprehension. Topless sunbathing is even forbidden in the U.S.

  • In damp and hot regions, it is sensible to wear lightweight clothing, which is not too tight, made from natural fibre or breathable microfibre. An umbrella will not only protect you from the rain, but also from the sun.
