More Dubai Travel Resources
If Dubai is your first taste of the Middle East, it is important to research a bit more into where you are going. Always adhere to and respect the country’s traditions and cultural norms. Even if they are not in line with your own. you are a guest, and throughout most of the Middle East, you will be treated with respect, but keep in mind the cultural appropriateness of your behavior and dress.

What to Wear in Dubai
When it comes to Dubai, you will see locals and residents dress modestly. The only ones you will see in short shorts are tourists. Depending on the area, dress will be a bit different. When in the hotel and at the beach, beachwear is fine. But when visiting Old Dubai, ensure you dress modestly. For women, pants and shirts with sleeves are recommended.
I have always been a guide book person and physically having that book in your hand as you plan your day, in addition to blogs like this one, can help immensely. Pick up a Lonely Planet Guide to Dubai (or the kindle version) before your trip to the UAE.
Whether you want to keep the sun off your head or want to show a little modesty, a scarf goes a long way in the Middle East any time of the year. You can bring one with you or pick up one when you arrive, but don’t leave your hotel in the morning without it! It can serve as a hat to keep the sun off your head and neck in the summer and can add some warmth in winter and can offer modesty to cover shoulders for women.
A Grayl Water Bottle is something I recommend for every traveller, not just those going to the Middle East. Some people say the water is safe to drink from the tap, others say it is not; it is not something I am going to chance.
If you consider drinking at least 1-2 big water bottles a day while you are there, think of how much plastic that creates when every visitor and local.
With a Grayl, you can filter any tap water (or actually any water source) and have clean drinking water in seconds. Since most people travel with water bottles already, consider one like this with a filter so that you are not just pouring from big water bottles to small. It might sound expensive, but when you compare it to spending a few dollars per day on water while you travel (and do not forget how expensive the water is inside airports), you will pay for this very quickly.
An inexpensive Universal Travel Adapter is another must for the UAE. You will find an assortment of 220V plugs, from European 2 pin, another style of 2 pin and UK Plugs. While European 2 pin is most common, it is best to carry one of these adapters with you. With a handy USB input, you do not need to bring your plugs from home.
Sunscreen and moisturizer are musts when visiting the Middle East. The air is very dry. Do yourself a favor and grab some of this as well. Your lips will thank you!
