Appropriate clothing for trip to Holy Land with JY
Post: #1
Hi Everyone,
I am really looking forward to JY visit to Holy Land in Sept.2012 and would love to hear experiences of fellow JYs who have been there.
As ever when visiting churches and places of worship, I shall be suitably covered. However, I am a bit unsure of what is acceptable to wear when walking around on trips as I have heard/been given a variety of info regarding this:
* have been told that shoulders AND arms must be covered and yet it is ok to wear short-sleeved t-shirt in public:
*was told ok to wear below-the-knee skirts; but that trousers must be long and not 7/8ths as ankles have to be covered!
* ok to wear strong walking sandals instead of shoes; but does this mean socks have to be worn with them to hide feet?

Perhaps dress code will not be so strict in our hotels.
Please help me pack correct clothing for my forthcoming holiday by sharing your Holy Land "dress" experiences!

With grateful thanks,
Janey1

I hope someone who has been can answer your questions. I have not been on this tour. I am sure when you get your final paperwork there will be guidlines off what or what not to wear. If not give the office a call and chat it through with the girls on the phones I am sue they can advise you. Have a great tour.. It's one I would like to go on.

Hi Janey,

I did a Christmas in the Holy Land tour so wasn't wearing shorts but I don't remember having any trouble wearing short sleeved tee shirts.
Check out Journeywoman.com - click on the heading What to Wear, Where - under Israel there are loads of tips re clothing etc.
You will need a specific travel adaptor for Israel. I bought one online but they were on sale in the shop at the first hotel we stayed at.
Hope this helps. Have a great holiday.

Trish.

I too am doing the Holy Land trip in October. Trish, I have got a 'multi' adaptor, which I purchased from Boots in 2009. I am wondering if it will have one for Israel or will I have to purchase a separate one. I am really looking forward to my trip.

Hi Jaya,

My adaptor has 3 rectangular prongs. The top one is straight down and the two bottom ones are at an angle. The two bottom ones are a little wider than the multi adaptor ones, but not much. Why not take the multi one anyway and buy one there if you need to. I bought mine from roamingfox.co.uk and this morning they are on sale at £4.99 (they say it is unique to Israel).
