Being one of seven emirates in the United Arab Emirates, located at the South of the Persian Gulf of the Arabian Peninsula, Dubai travel has almost everything to offer to each and every single traveler. Coming here to conquer the golden dunes, discover the sandy desert or explore the city of luxury and opulence, there are still quite a few things you should get to know in advance as they might usually come in handy at anytime of the day.
- Pay attention to your travel insurance
Some insurance companies will not cover the costs if you experience health problems while travelling. Therefore, it is strongly crucial to get it checked with your insurance company beforehand or purchase a travel insurance package before your departure as travelling to Dubai, it might be relatively easy to buy medicines at any regional drug stores, however, if you have to be hospitalized, the costs for treatment as well as the costs to take you back to your country is incredibly expensive.
- Be careful while capturing your photographs
Never take photographs of the locals especially women when you don’t have their permission. Remember you’re not allowed to take pictures in places such as in front of government buildings, military bases, ports or other places with similar properties.
- Do not drink alcohol in public
Alcohol is restricted in Dubai, however, you can have them at some free tax stores in the city. If you’re a foreign traveler, you won’t be able to buy alcohol in the local stores and always bear in mind that if you get drunk in public, you will be fined as same as drinking while driving.
- Be conscious of your personal medicines
Make sure with your personal doctors for the medicines that you could carry with yourself while travelling just in case you will get jailed for carrying illegal drugs.
- Never exchange your cash in public
Never exchange your cash for local currency in public places in the city as not only you might not be able to receive the full amount but also it might lead you to some bad situations such as bring pick pocketed or robbed.
