The United Arab Emirates is known as one of the most luxurious places in the world and the people there take great pride in the fact that they’ve built some of the largest man-made wonders in the world. Even so, the United Arab Emirates is a lot more than luxury and worldly possession. The Emiratis are very traditional people, and they have a beautiful culture too.
All seven Emirates are conservative. The Emiratis are religious people, Muslim, so you need to abide by some rules while going there. Dress conservatively if you want to explore the country. You need to cover your shoulders, knees, back, and show as much skin as possible. Women, for example, cannot enter mosques or other religious sites without wearing long dresses.
One of the most common misconceptions is that only rich people can go to the United Arab Emirates but, there are plenty of affordable attractions here. Whilst you may not be able to travel to the United Arab Emirates on a budget, you also do not have to be a millionaire either.
The United Arab Emirates most popular tourist attraction is its desert safari. The huge sand dunes, 4×4 jeeps, Bedouin barbecues, camel rides and many other cultural activities are available for you in the desert. Just remember that the desert can be scorching during the day and quite chilly during the night so pack appropriate clothing. The obvious abundance of sand means you need to protect yourself with scarves and good shoes. Also, try to dress in white as much as you can to reflect the sun, and make sure to drink plenty of water. Getting dehydrated in the desert takes a lot less than in normal conditions.
Even if the United Arab Emirates is mostly desert, you can enjoy some of the best beaches in the world. Some of them are open to the public, where you need to follow ground rules that involve a dress code again, while others are private and you can do whatever you want. The private beaches usually belong to luxury resorts. They are more liberal, but not as much so as in Western countries. Remember that Emiratis also visit these resorts, and you do not want to be disrespectful.
While the United Arab Emirates does not have its own cuisine, you will love the food there. Lavish restaurants are in abundance, and the food there is a mix of Turkish and Lebanese, but you can find plenty of western food as well.
You should not have an issue communicating while in the United Arab Emirates. A lot of people there speak English, and the city of Dubai is made up of 85% ex-pats. You can get around quite easily. Plus, the country’s economy relies on tourism, so the Emiratis seek to be as hospitable as possible. The people in UAE are incredibly hospitable as long as you show respect for their traditions and culture. However, you need to keep in mind that physical contact between opposite genders is frowned upon. For example, if someone invites you to their home, do not extend your arm to shake the hand of the lady of the house. Also, public displays of affection are regarded as rude in the UAE, so refrain from too much touching while on the street. Lastly, you are allowed to take a lot of pictures wherever you may go, but under no circumstance should you take a picture of women on the streets. It is strictly forbidden, and you may get into trouble if you do not follow this rule. The United Arab Emirates is one of the most developed countries in the Middle East. It is a peaceful and safe country where you can enjoy a lot of attractions. As long as you are aware that you are in a conservative state and act accordingly, you should have the time of your life.
