Women of the Middle East and Travel Tips and Savings

Curated by CLAI

MIDDLE EASTERN WOMEN’S DRESS in public: Only the majority of Saudis consider the niqab the most appropriate. The al-mira is most preferred in Tunisia and Egypt, with greatest consensus in Turkey and Iraq. In Lebanon, the greatest consensus is wearing hair without any hijab. The full burqa is not popular with any of the countries polled. (Study doesn’t distinguish between male and female respondents). (NYTIMES)
