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 attentive to local customs. Many Muslim countries remain very conservative in their traditions, and any foreign woman should follow established rules and observe etiquette. This is not only a manifestation of respect for the local culture, but also ensuring one’s security. Below are a few tips for traveling women who 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. You can forget about shorts and tops, as well as miniskirts and any fitting clothes. It should be noted that in countries such as Iran, it is imperative 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 under their clothes, except for the face and hands, you do not need to go so far, a wide shirt with a long sleeve and a long spacious skirt will be quite suitable outfit. This way you will attract less attention and get more respect from the locals. Do not forget to put a handkerchief on your head when entering a temple or mosque.

2. Wedding Ring

The necessary step in order to keep men at a decent distance, without provoking them to make you a marriage proposal. Come up with a story about your husband. Something like that he is about to arrive or is in a nearby city. It is always helpful to convince people that you should meet your husband soon.

3. Do not approach men

Many men like to think that the location of a foreigner can be easily obtained with a few gentle words. Of course, Western women are used to socializing with men in a friendly and innocent atmosphere, however, beware, Muslim men do not think so. By 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 watch local women, not one of them looks around at people walking along. They always move quickly to their destination. If you want to look around, use sunglasses, so that men cannot look into your eyes. Eye contact is a serious statement for some Muslims, which may entail at least unflattering comments in your direction.

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

In some places, far from big cities, you simply cannot travel alone. You will constantly encounter problems, especially if you do not know the country and the language very well. To facilitate travel, it is better to find a fellow traveler who agrees to play your “husband” during the trip.

6. Be careful in public transport.

If you are traveling with a man, always sit near the window. If you are traveling alone, keep in transport next to a group of women.

7. At a meeting or away

If you travel with a man, you must accept that you are always addressed through a man. Women can sit at home separately from men, in this case, do not try to join men! Never show your soles, this is considered disrespect, and also do not eat with your left hand and do not give it any objects. When entering the house, take off your shoes.
