Shopping and Food

Visitors are advised not to eat any of the local food unless it has been cooked through. One specialty available on the island is the "Djak", a large, green fruit (about 1.5 - 2 feet in length) with a taste resembling lychee.

Malaria, including cerebral malaria, is prevalent in the Comoros.

Although the Comoros are a rather liberal Muslim country, it is disrespectful for women to expose their shoulders, much of their chest, knees, and especially stomach and lower back. Wear shirts or shawls that cover these areas. Locals will not expect foreign, non-Muslim women to cover their heads. When swimming, local women are fully dressed. Foreigners are not expected to do this, but shorts and a swimming shirt is more respectful than a bikini or topless swimming. Men should wear shorts below the knee, though this is less offensive than a woman doing so. Public affection between men and women is not acceptable, though one may rarely see a Comorian man and woman holding hands briefly (in the nightclubs some locals seem to ignore Muslim convention).
