I am a single female backpacker. In a month or so I will be going to Brunei from Malaysia. Both are Muslim countries, but I understand that Brunei is more conservative than Malaysia, though Westernizes to an extent.
In Malaysia, I've been able to get away with wearing long shorts (slightly longer than knee length), t-shirts with a modest neckline that are not overly tight, and the like. Is the same acceptable in Brunei, or do I need to wear full-length trousers, long-sleeved shirts, a headscarf, and so on? Obviously bikinis, booty shorts, and the like are out, but how far in the other direction of the spectrum do I need to go?
I was harassed when I travelled to Morocco wearing long trousers and modest short-sleeved shirts. During that trip I had a male escort, which didn't seem to help much; I'm trying to avoid the same situation in this upcoming trip especially since I will be alone.
