At this entrance we showed our tickets (purchased down below) to the guards who also inspected our clothing. We were not allowed to wear shoes or hats inside, and women had to wear conservative clothing. Nina's long skirt had a slit which came nearly up to her knees so the guard required her to rent a sarong to tie over her skirt. This seemed unfair since other women wore shorter skirts but we were not in a position to argue. We think the small rental fee went into the guard's pocket.
