The Foreign Office has launched a Know Before You Go campaign in order to educate Britons about local customs when they are on holiday. Most Brits like topless sunbathing, but some countries have laws forbidding the same.
The campaign was launched after it emerged that half of the women who indulge in topless sunbathing do so before checking the local regulations.
"Different countries have different laws and customs, and what's acceptable in Spain may not be acceptable in Greece or Turkey," said Jess Prasad, manager of the campaign. "With more people travelling outside the eurozone this year, it is ever more important that people familiarise themselves with the local laws and customs before they go."
In Egypt and Dubai having public sex is an offence as is holding hands in public. One in seven men in the survey said he had indulged in public sex. Furthermore in Tunisia and Morocco, you cannot stay with a partner you are not legally married to.
