Dubai Tourism Guide and Tips

Planning a trip to Dubai? This Dubai tourism guide will help you in making the smart choices and getting the most out of your trip.

Visa

If you are traveling from the US you don’t need a visa to go to Dubai. Just a passport and you’re done. Otherwise, you would need a visiting visa for Dubai to land into this city.

Book the Accommodation

Dubai is full of luxury hotels and five-star beach resorts. Book your hotel online where you are planning to stay during your trip. Choose the accommodation wisely keeping your budget in mind.

Transportation

If you’re not a fan of metros then we would recommend you to take the taxi. There you’ll have the choice of both regular fair cabs and fancy Lexus taxis. Make sure they are using meters to estimate the fair of your ride. However, the option of using Metro is always available. There are two lines of Metro – Red line and Green line. The red line connects the airport with the places like Palm Jumeirah resort, Burj Khalifa, and Dubai Mall. On the other hand, the Green line lets you explore museums and souks of the old town. You can also use the buses if you want to enjoy the views along with the ride.

Food and Alcohol

Food in Dubai is both delicious and cheap. You will find pretty much everything when it comes to food as people from Pakistan, India, Iran, Jordan, Egypt, and many other countries have added their famous foods to the menu Dubai menu. It is therefore popular as multicultural cuisine and you won’t have to stress much over what you want to eat. You may take a stroll in the streets of Deira and treat your taste buds with some quality food. Popular dishes include Shawarma, marinated fish, basmati rice, hummus, and curried dishes. You will see a lot of dates there and you might like to try some with Arabic coffee.

You’re prohibited from drinking Alcohol openly in Dubai that means no public drinking. However, there are licensed bars where you may enjoy being alcoholic. You can stock alcohol in the refrigerator of your hotel room. Just make sure you’re not drunk when you are driving. Drunk driving will lead you to jail.

Shopping

Dubai is a dream come true for all the shopaholics, however, if you are traveling on a budget you might find them a little boring or extravagant (for sure). You won’t have to think and search, it’s all available right in front of your eyes. There is literally nothing that you cannot find in Dubai malls. It won’t be wrong to say that just like Hong Kong and Singapore, Dubai is an ultimate paradise for shopping lovers. In the great Dubai Mall, you have an ATM “Gold-to-go” where you can withdraw gold provided that you have enough funds.

Dress Code

Once you’ve entered Dubai, you are supposed to follow the dress code for every place you go. When wandering the shopping malls, or visiting Burj Kalifa, or dining in hotels, Women are expected to wear dresses that won’t display their knees and shoulders. And for men, they are not allowed to wear short shorts and muscle tanks that means even men are not allowed to show their knees in public. However, you may see people in their bathing suits when you’ll take a stroll of the beaches. You are allowed to wear almost anything when inside the water. While visiting the mosques, you are supposed to have your head cover out of respect and wear clothes that are not revealing your body parts.

Other things you should keep in your mind,

  1. You are not allowed to kiss in the public, even cuddling and hugging is prohibited and can warrant jail time.
  2. No loud music is allowed.
  3. If you are (that you must be) planning to visit Burj Khalifa, it’d be smarter to pre-book the tickets.
  4. If you are traveling During Ramadan, you’re not allowed to eat, drink, or even chew in the public.
  5. It is quite hot in there. We would suggest you visit Dubai in cooler seasons.
