I understand that in an islamic state the religion is the state law, and its people accept, even want that. If a non-islamic person goes there, that person has to obey the law firstly, and be respectful to the local sensibilities too. The same should be the case when an islamic person goes to a non-islamic country: to respect both the law and the local sensibilities.

It's a different thing where one nation is a theocracy, the law being religiously prescribed, and the other nation sectular, the law being (ideologically speaking) apart from religious tenets - because where a religious law contradicts a national law, the religious following would have to outweigh the legal one, God being a higher authority than man (Neglecting the fact that religion is man made anyway).

It's neither nice, not conducive to good relations for a visitor to not care about the locals, just because he / she is different, and he / she thinks he / she owns the truth.

I also have a problem with those who try to boast their differences, or who unwelcomely try to proselytize (convert).

I think the Muslims we speak about in the West are not usually visitors, but national residents and citizens.

Does an Islamic woman need to be covered up in order to be honored and respected?

No she does not. As whether one chooses to respect another and honor another is based on themselves, not if a woman chooses to cover. I am Muslim and cover, but I can tell you I have been around women who cover who do not have respectable behavior they gossip and judge others. I also have friends who chpose not to cover and treat others with respect and kindness. There is also something called the hijab of your behavior. This is in regards to how one acts and treats others.
