Men's & Kids Dresscode

Hi I am pretty sure how to dress round the hotel, beach shopping malls and souks etc. However would it be acceptable for my husband to wear shorts (just below the knee) chino style in the shopping and malls and souks or would it be more appropriate to wear full length linen chino type trousers.

As for kids is it pretty much anything goes?

I would think that chino type would be more appropriate for him because the air con is fierce in all of the malls and he may find that he's too cold in shorts

Sorry forgot the kids bit.. It will dpend to some extent on the age of the kids - teenage girls for example would I think feel more comfortable covering up middle, thighs and shoulders when out and about.

It's not that it's any more dangerous than anywhere else - in many respects it's a safer place than most - but that a lot of the men do stare at you. And the more you show, the more they stare.

For younger kids, I'd say anything goes
