The Thousand Islands regency administration has asked that tourists, both locals and foreigners, who visit the island to '€œdress modestly'€.

Thousand Islands'€™ Tourism and Culture Agency head Irfal Guci said that more and more tourists had visited the island over the years. Thus, he said, the office felt the need to encourage tourists to dress appropriately to respect local residents.

Irfal said that he would continue disseminating the information to tourists to encourage them to wear appropriate outfits during their stay on the Thousand Islands.

He went on to say that appropriate outfits were needed so that local residents '€œare not negatively affected'€.

'€œIf tourists are doing activities in residential areas and neighborhoods, then they must dress appropriately. However, tourists may wear beach outfits in certain areas,'€ Irfal said as quoted by beritajakarta.com.

He said that the office would continue to promote tourism on the Thousand Islands, offering activities such as snorkeling, among many others.
