Pack Enough Ihram Clothing For Your Hajj Tour

Hajj Tour Travel Tips #1

Ihram clothing for women

What you should pack at least two to three sets of extra clothes for ihram. If you feel carrying so much is going to be difficult, then you can opt for the cheaper options when you get in Saudi, and buy them from there.

Changing your clothes is a must, since you will most definitely get very sweaty and dirty. Laundromats may or may not be around while conducting manasik, so carrying extra sets is recommendable.

The nights get really cold and the extra sets can help keep you warm at the same time.
