Do not wear short shorts or revealing outfits. In short, dress up properly as the occasion calls for it. When dining in restaurants, pay attention to the dress code, whether it is casual or informal.

At the poolside, it is okay to don on bathing suits and bikinis. Of course, you have to cover yourself up when walking from the pool to the lifts or your rooms.
