Khaki, brown and olive green are the best colours to wear and comfortable clothing is of the utmost importance. If you are travelling during the winter months, a variety of warm layers is recommended. Additionally, most establishments provide laundry services that return clothing to you within 24 hours. However, dry cleaning services are not available.
