Depending on your nationality, you may need a visa to visit. This visa can be purchased at the airport, but please check the entry requirements for your particular country online beforehand.
It is important to understand that the culture is different here. To respect local values, please dress more conservatively, try not to assess the country with western ideals, and ask permission before you take photos.
