"Cover please?" Wearing the veil. Tip by daaebissa
Wearing the veil., Jiddah: 4 reviews and 4 photos
To cover or not to cover, that is the Western woman's question. Well, the first 3/4 of my trip I did not cover my head. The last 1/4 of my trip I did. I found that I was a lot more respected, even spoken to in Arabic and blended in much better when I covered my head. It is your own choice obviously, but always bring a scarf with you in your purse when going out. You never know where or when the Muttawa (religious police) is lurking. I never had any problems with the Muttawa - only to have them tell me politely to "please cover my head".
