Question: What should you not wear in Indonesia?

Our advice is to avoid wearing revealing clothes as a mark of respect to the countrys predominantly Muslim values. A long skirt or pants with a loose cotton shirt with sleeves would all work well and will protect you from the sun. Or, better still, get properly dressed so you fit right in.

What do Indonesian girls wear?

At home, Indonesian women like to wear loose and comfortable dresses called daster. In recent years, more and more Muslim women cover their hair and neck with a veil, jilbab or hijab.

Why do Indonesians cover their hair?

Reasons for wearing hijab Many Muslim women in Indonesia also seem to wear the hijab for this reason. In the 2014 survey, 95% of the hijab-wearing respondents said they wore it for religious reasons. Some Muslim women also wear it for security, comfort and political reasons.

Does Indonesia accept tourists?
