Over the past two decades, Dubai has trademarked itself as an ideal tourist destination in the Middle East. The city has a perfect blend of traditions, and at the same time it is modernistic in its approach. It has several contemporary activities in its kitty, but culture here runs down deep. In times like these packing becomes a challenging task for the traveller. Rule of the thumb in Dubai is to pack as lightly as possible, be comfortable, and yet make sure you don’t cross your social boundaries. Most importantly come with an open mind, embrace the culture and heritage, and take pleasure in everything you do!
* In the shopping malls, souks, or restaurants, visiting the Burj Khalifa or any other splendid likewise place, you can be completely relaxed, and wear whatever you please; as long as you don’t expose too much. For instance, for women, you can wear shorts, skirts, vests, etc. Similarly, men can wear jeans, denims, linen trousers, tees, formal shirts. Besides, the air conditioning in Dubai can feel very cold in comparison to the hot weather outside.
* Bathing suits, tank tops and sundresses are appropriate for the beach. In addition, carry comfortable footwear. You can opt for high heels, but when out for long walks in the historical and cultural 'Old Dubai' flats or wedges will be an ideal option.
* When you are out visiting a mosque, a shrine, or maybe even a fort or museum, it is a safe bet to carry a scarf or a shawl. It will save you from the blistering heat as well as help you to cover your shoulders and bare legs. Avoid wearing tops and skirts that are short, tight, or body hugging. Keep bottled water with you at all times.
* If you are out on an adventure ride like desert safari, or a dhow cruise, it would be nice if you choose loose clothing. It will have the double benefit of keeping you cool and attract less attention. After all, you will be amongst sand dunes, go camel-riding, get your hands painted with henna, etc. Also, bring along a pair of sunglasses, a hat and sunscreen. These are bare essentials when you will be spending long hours outside.
Last, but not the least, have a camera with you at all times. And keep in mind the very famous adage, 'Respect the law of the land' and you will never go wrong.
