Go for a conservative wardrobe

Before packing your things, you must remember that flashy, revealing outfits are a big NO. For men, make sure you put your shirt on when walking around. For women, veer away from too-tight, short clothing. Remember to respect the Muslim culture.

Steer clear of PDA

While staying in Dubai, veer away from kissing your loved one or holding hands while you’re in public. Many people have been imprisoned as public displays of affection are deemed offensive in UAE.

Mind your manners

While Dubai is highly urbanized, you have to consider checking your manners while you are, for instance, in bars. It is prudent not to drink too much and to err on caution. Their culture is different from yours.

Book flights six months in advance

Remember that when you book your flight’s way ahead of your desired departure date, there is a big chance you will get a considerable discount. You must buy your ticket no later than a month before your flight.

Book your hotel 2 to 3 months ahead

Note that from October to April, Dubai is a well-liked tourist destination for many people across the globe. Ensuring you get the best hotel/resort for your stay is smart. You should book your hotel no later than a month in advance. Plus, this way, the price might be even lower.

Make sure to visit the desert

You will miss a lot when you decide not to go to the stunning Arabian Desert. Here, you can try out thrilling activities, including a sundown desert safari, a dune drive, and riding on a hot air balloon.

There is no doubt that Dubai is the place to be, especially with your loved one, as it has a wide array of breathtaking sceneries and exciting activities. However, it is prudent to consider many things before you travel so you will not land in a potentially uncomfortable situation.
