CAUTION - Zanzibar or Mombasa:
If going to Zanzibar, Mombasa or Lamu (East Africa beach towns), please be advised that those two places are of Muslim majority, and long dresses are strongly recommended. Try to avoid clothes that show much of your bodies, or “skin-tight" clothes unless you are at the beaches. Muslims are more often offended by seeing skimpy dressing.
