Is there a dresscode for Woman?

Western tourists may wear shorts, and it is not uncommon to see Western women in bikinis on the beaches. However, visitors should keep in mind that what may be acceptable on a beach or in a hotel may not necessarily be acceptable on the streets.

In public, female visitors should wear clothing that covers their shoulders and upper arms, and skirts that do not go above the knees. Inland areas are much more conservative, and activities and styles of dress that are acceptable in the coastal areas are not appropriate.

Despite the openness toward other beliefs, Islam is nevertheless an important aspect in the lives of the citizens of Oman.
