Things to Do and See in Dubai

Shopping in Dubai - no holiday in Dubai would be complete without a bit of shopping. With some of the best shopping malls on the planet like the Dubai Mall, or the Mall of the Emirates Dubai has it all.
The Dubai Culture
Visitors have to remenber that Dubai is a Muslim city, and therefore the culture in Dubai should be respected for that, when it comes to dress code and behaviour. Visitors to Dubai should remember to dress modestly, particularly in areas where they mix with local Dubai residents. At the beach and at the swimming pool it is acceptable to wear swimwear, but tourists should cover up sensibly elsewhere. Short trousers and T-shirts are regarded as suitable attire in many places, apart from when visiting religious sites and mosques, and even parts of the old city in Dubai. Women should wear a headscarf when entering mosques.
It si best to be careful when it comes to drinking alcohol when it comes to car hire. Drinking and driving is not tolerated, and can result in a hefty fine or worse. Being drunk and disorderly in a public place is also frowned upon. Alcohol can be purchased in licensed premises normally hotels or restaurants.
Showing signs of affection by holding hands is acceptable, however kissing or hugging in public is not.
