I can't understand, personally, why you wouldn't like to dress nicely in the evenings. That doesn't have to mean a three piece suit either! Surely part of being on holiday is dressing up in your finest. Appearances in many areas are sadly lacking these days IMHO.

Could not agree more.

I can't quite get my head round why some people have such a problem with what someone else chooses to wear...

If someone chooses to wear his or her best bib & tucker to go out for a meal (as I do on occasions) - or conversely a pair of shorts and a tee shirt, then that's absolutely fine by me - as long as they're not doing anything to harm me or mine, then they're very welcome to enjoy their holiday in whatever way they see fit.

What does get me is the way some believe that simply by the fact they're going to one of the more expensive establishments that they can look down their noses at others who's dress doesn't conform to theirs.

There's a word for it somewhere.......

Whoa, slow down there! It is just opinions. No-one has said you must be suited and booted and neither has anyone said you must wear shorts. My opinion was simply that I thought shorts MAY not be appropriate at some places but then some good arguments have been given for them. No problem.

Why on earth do you have to bring snobbiness into it? This is a forum after all, or is it?

Wear what you want when you want! Am sure we have all had an unexpected day that ended up being an evening out as well. Just enjoy your holiday :)

OK guys that's enough, why does this topic always cause problems? :eek:.

To answer the original poster's question, as someone has already said there is no "dress code" here except for not exposing certain body parts in bars and restaurants.

Once again i am forced to close a thread because some of you can't or won't respect other peoples opinions :mad::mad:.
