    Visiting a monastery


    If you’’re preparing to jet off on the adventure of a lifetime, or you’’re gearing up for a cultural retreat, you may be thinking about visiting historic and religious sites, including visiting a monastery.

    Before you go, it’’s a good idea to do some research and find out about customs and traditions. You should also take some travel tips into consideration to reduce the risk of travel accidents.

    Tips for visiting a monastery

    If you’’re visiting a monastery or any other religious site, it’’s worth bearing some pointers in mind. Pay attention to signs and follow advice in guidebooks and travel websites.

    Be silent when entering areas of areas of prayer or reflection. Don’’t take photographs if you’’ve been asked not to. Give other visitors time and space. Wear appropriate clothing; it’’s usually advisable to cover the knees and shoulders. If you’’re not sure whether what you’’re wearing is suitable or not, take a scarf or wrap with you.

    When visiting a monastery, remember that they are very old places. Take care to avoid
    slip and trip hazards. Wear suitable footwear when walking outside and keep to the specified pathways. Don’’t carry valuables on you, or large sums of cash.
