Getting a traditional dress made in Somaliland


Somaliland is a very traditionalist Muslim state where strict Sharia Law is followed. Foreign female travelers to Somaliland will therefore have to dress conservatively. A knee length dress with leggings and a head cover is not sufficient. (show pic of you in clothes). You will be better off wearing a proper dress (bhati) that covers your entire leg down to your foot. Or, you can get one made in about 10 minutes in Hargeisa downtown market. Watch me as I get my very own dress made in Somaliland!
