How should I dress?
Dressing light is appropriate year round, but you may need to bring some heavier clothing (e.g. sweaters) during the winter or if there is air conditioning.
Generally, there are no rigid dress codes, but you should respect the local culture: for example, tight or provocative clothing is not advised, especially in places families may go to, like malls and restaurants.
During your stay we suggest you wear sunscreen and always carry a bottle of water with you.
