Our tips for Dubai

  • Keep your lips sealed. Adopt a hands-off approach with your special someone during your time Dubai sightseeing, kissing and overt PDA’s isn’t this city’s style.
  • Dress down. Keep your more revealing outfits at home to avoid causing any offence. Locals in Dubai dress more conservatively than in most other cosmopolitan cities.
  • Shop around. This fashion capital boasts designer everything. For more authentic shopping experiences, Dubai day trips to the souqs, open-air marketplaces full of Arabian trinkets and treasures are ideal.

Best time to visit
Dubai is hot and steamy year-round. If you can, avoid the scorching, sauna-like summer months when humidity is high and temperatures average 43°C and opt for a visit during November to March when low 30°C days rule. Be warned, with the pleasant weather comes the tourists. Tourist season reaches its peak in January through to March when Dubai attractions hosting cultural events and festivals like the Dubai Camel Racing and Dubai Tennis Open breathes new life into the city. If you're looking for a jam-packed stay, there's plenty of things to do in Dubai this tourist season.
Getting around
Navigating the city’s mishmash of epic high-rises and sandy streets can be testing. Here's our travel breakdown of the best ways to find your way through this United Arab Emirates city.
  • When considering what to do in Dubai, keep in mind that this city is not a walking city. A lack of pavements, pedestrian crossings and traffic lights make travelling by foot challenging, with many opting for a licensed driver or taxi to get them from point A to B.
  • Besides driving, the city's modern transport links of metro trains and buses are your best bet. Simply pick up a rechargeable Nol Card from your local metro station or ticket office to travel on these channels.
  • Take the scenic route and cruise the creeks and rivers on one of our many Dubai tours. Hop on an abras, a traditional wooden boat functioning as the city's water taxis or board a waterbus for a budget-friendly alternative.
Stay Safe
Low crime rates make Dubai one of the world's safest cities. However, it's always important to apply caution and common sense during your travels. Keep these tips in mind:
  • Dubai's streets can get a little hairy, and road fatalities are common. Be sure to take extra care when crossing roads and book the services of experienced drivers and licensed cab pick-ups for travelling if necessary. Many Dubai day tours also include safe and secure transport for their guests.
  • It's uncommon for locals to encounter females travelling solo, and at times, women can be subject to unwanted attention. Act confident, avoid lingering eye contact and surround yourself with other women when necessary.
  • In an emergency, dial 999 for an English-speaking operator.
