If you’re planning on visiting the beautiful city of Dubai, there are a number of things you should learn to avoid causing offence. Take a look here to discover the 7 things to never do in Dubai and you’ll stay out of trouble.
1. Drink Alcohol in Non-Designated Areas
It may not be a part of the culture to drink alcohol but it is widely available in Dubai, mainly because of the high number of expats and tourists.
However, be sure to drink alcohol only in the comfort of your own home or other private locations. Why? Well, it is illegal to drink in the street or in a public space, unless of course, it is at a licensed establishment such as a bar, club or restaurant.
2. Public Displays of Affection
Public displays of affection are thought to be indecent in Dubai, so be mindful of this and keep your canoodling for behind closed doors.
Authorities will take action if you’re engaging in affectionate gestures that are deemed offensive to their culture, no matter how minor they may seem to you. It’s better to be safe than sorry, so be sure to refrain from all forms of PDA, just in case.
3. Wear Inappropriate Clothes

Opt for Self-Catering Accommodation
Of course it’ll be tempting to stay in a swanky hotel in Dubai, but if you’re money conscious, it’s not that feasible. Why not opt for self-catering accommodation instead?
This will be a much cheaper option, particularly if there is a big group of you going away as you can split the cost of a villa between you.
Self-catering accommodation provides amenities for you to prepare and cook meals as and when you wish. So, instead of paying for bed & breakfast or all-inclusive facilities, you can cater for yourself.
And the beauty of self-catering is that if you fancy treating yourself to a meal then you can dine out at the restaurants in Dubai Marina or Downtown Dubai, but the option is always there for you to eat in and save a few pounds.
Whilst you may not think it’ll make much of a difference to book online, you’d be surprised. High-street prices are typically more than online prices, mainly because a store on the high-street employs staff who needs to be paid, so their salaries are included in your holiday prices, along with the overhead costs of running a store. Cheeky, right?
Booking online might take some researching, but it’ll certainly be worth it for the savings you’ll gain. Be sure...
