But it is important to be remembered that it is technically considered to be a Muslim region , and thus a little bit of caution must be taken in some areas. T-shirts and long shorts can be worn by both genders in the city, but should you visit any mosques with active worshippers, all visitors should wear pants that fall below the knee and tops that cover their shoulders.
