Tips for tourists in Muslim countries

In the Muslim world, it is not customary for a woman to travel alone, so you need to be careful about local customs. Many Muslim countries remain very conservative in their traditions, and any foreign woman must follow the established rules and observe etiquette. This is not only a manifestation of respect for the local culture, but also ensuring your safety. Below are some tips for traveling women, which can help avoid uncomfortable or even dangerous situations, as well as better penetrate and explore the local culture.

1. Choose the right clothes

In addition to the Mediterranean resorts in Turkey and the Red Sea in Egypt, it is recommended to follow a more conservative dress code. You can forget about shorts and tops, as well as miniskirts and any tight-fitting clothes. It should be noted that in countries such as Iran, it is simply necessary to cover your head and wear a spacious jacket for both local women and tourists, even if this is not prescribed by law. In Egypt, women hide everything except their faces and hands under clothes, you don’t have to go that far, a wide shirt with a long sleeve and a long spacious skirt will be a very suitable outfit. In this way, you will attract less attention and gain more respect from the locals. Remember to put a scarf on your head when entering a temple or mosque.

2. engagement ring

A necessary step in order to keep men at a decent distance, without provoking them to make you marriage proposals. Make up a story about your “husband.” Something like that he was about to arrive or was in a nearby town. It is always helpful to convince people that you should soon meet with your husband.

3. Do not get close to men

Many men like to think that the location of a foreigner can be easily obtained with a few affectionate words. Of course, Western women are accustomed to communicating with men in a friendly and innocent environment, however, beware, Muslim men do not think so. Accepting an invitation from a local man even for dinner, you agree to a close relationship with him (in his opinion).

4. Never look men in the eyes on the street.

If you observe the local women, not one of them looks around at people walking. They always move quickly to their destination. If you want to look around, use sunglasses so that men can not look into your eyes. Eye contact is a serious statement for some Muslims, which may result in at least unflattering comments in your direction.

5. If you travel in very conservative countries, try to find a male companion

In some places, far from big cities, you simply can’t travel alone. You will constantly encounter problems, especially if you do not know the country and language very well. To facilitate the journey, it is better to find a companion who agrees to play your “husband” for the duration of the trip.

6. Be careful in public transport

If you are traveling with a man, always sit down by the window. If traveling alone, stay in the vehicle next to a group of women.

7. At a meeting or away

If you are traveling with a man, you must accept that you are always addressed through a man. Women can sit in the house separately from men, in this case, do not try to join the men! Never show your soles, this is considered disrespectful, and do not eat with your left hand and do not give her any objects. Take off your shoes when entering the house.
