Going on a Holy Land tour is one of the most spiritual experiences that you can ever go through in life. It’s an amazing trip and journey that you’ll remember for the rest of your life. So, it’s only essential that you make the most out of it.

There are a couple of things that you must remember when going on an LDS Holy Land tour in Israel to avoid getting in trouble with the locals and the trip itself. It’s time to discuss what those are, so make sure to read on.

Wear the right type of clothes.

The number one thing that visitors should take note of is the clothes required for the tour. The Middle East countries are quite strict when it comes to their dress code, plus, the Holy Land is sacred land, which means that proper clothing must be worn as a sign of respect.

For women, covering your legs, arms, cleavage, and shoulders is a must, especially when entering mosques. For men, shorts are a big no-no. They are also advised to cover their heads when entering mosques and synagogues.

Also, the weather in Israel is hot and humid, which means that visitors would need to pack loose and comfortable clothes. You can also bring a scarf to protect your skin from the sun.

Bring some medicines.

You should never forget this wherever you’re going and whatever trip you’re taking. Some of the most important medicines that you should pack are for the following: diarrhea, stomachache, headache, inflammation, motion sickness, and insect bites.

Bring adaptors for your electronic devices.

The usual electric current that can be found in Israel and Jordan is 220-volt AC, with a 50Hz cycle. The sockets in Israel are three-pinned and round-pronged, while the ones in Jordan are round-pronged and two-pinned.

Tour attendees should definitely bring some adaptors with them if they want to avoid any hassle when it comes to charging their phones and other electronic devices.

Lastly, don’t forget your camera so you can take lots of pictures during your trip. The Holy Land is an amazing place, so of course, you would want to keep the memories with you forever.
