So, you are thinking about packing up the family and traveling to Dubai? Well, it is easy to see why you would want to travel to the amazing city, however, there are quite a few things that you need to be aware of in order to get the most out of your trip. For instance, Dubai is a cosmopolitan city that is located in United Arab Emirates. It is most well-known for its amazing luxury spas, beaches, Arabic sands, and shopping. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to preparing for a trip to Dubai. Below, you will learn more tips and information that you need to be aware of when traveling to Dubai:

Packing For A Summer Vacation In Dubai

Most of the locals in Dubai will dress according to the Arabic standards, but the city really is pretty relaxed when it comes to foreigners. Although, it is still a good ideal to dress moderately in order to show the locals that you respect their customs and beliefs. While it might be hot during the summer months, it is still appropriate to wear loose clothing that completely covers the arms and legs. This is especially true, if you are going to be paying a visit to the mosques or restaurants.

It should be known that Dubai is a hot and humid desert. This means that the summer temperatures can sometimes reach above a blazing 100 degrees Fahrenheit. May to October are always the hottest months, thus if you are traveling to the city during the months you need to be properly prepared. Make sure that you bring sunglasses, suntan lotion, and lip balm. Sandals are also great if you are going to be visiting the beaches, because the sun will be too hot to stand on with bare feet. Bring several swimsuits and waterproof cameras, so that you can be prepared for a great time at the beach and water parks. Light colored clothing is always the best, since it will really deflect the sun’s hot rays.

Pack For A Winter Vacation In Dubai

December through February are considered to be coldest weather months for Dubai. While it is a desert climate, the weather will stay pretty mild during the day, but it can get cold at night. It is always a great idea to pack warm clothing like a jacket, sweater, and pants. Summer clothing will probably be fine for the day, however at night you will need to dress a little warmer. A shawl works really well for women, because it is a common piece of clothing this is worn throughout the area, and it can keep you really warm.

Taking scenic shots it okay, but you need to be careful of capturing certain buildings like airports, government sites, and military sites. It is possible that you can be arrested and fined heavily for taking shots of these types of buildings without first asking permission.
