Dubai: Your Complete Travel Guide to this Land of Excess
If you’ve been dreaming of skiing and suntanning in the same day, drunk on $5k bottles of Cristal, Dubai is your opulent paradise.
What to pack?
If you are travelling to Dubai in the summer, I strongly advise you to pack a generous amount of sunscreen, tank tops and shorts, because it will get really hot. Don’t forget to bring your swimming wear, since you definitely wouldn’t want to miss out on the beaches and the water parks. And like I have mentioned before, you don’t need to worry about being dress coded anywhere. None of the tourist destinations in Dubai have any dress codes that you need to follow.
If you are travelling here during the winter, bring jeans and some sweaters. You should pack at least one warm jacket, because it can get alarmingly cold in the desert at night.
Make sure to pack at least a couple heels and glam dresses for all the fancy clubs and restaurants you’re going to be frequenting.
Dubai is a wonderful place, packed with heritage, one of the world’s tallest buildings and also luxury shopping outlets that you don’t want to miss. It’s the perfect place to fill your Instagram feed with, to get so lavishly tired that your feet start hurting and to cure that by going into one of the best exotic spas.
So hurry up and start packing! And for God’s sake, don’t forget the sunscreen!
Dubai is really awesome. Really rich county. you can tell just by the clean streets and high-end buildings. Such luxurious country.
Dubai is one of the best and most beautiful places in the world. It has world tallest building” Burj Khalifa” which has 163 Floors and you can look at the entire city, the best time is sunset its called Prime hour.
Dubai is the place where I enjoyed my best time with my friend last year. Their structural view and saw the sea-beach is just mindblowing. I am a great fan of Dubai.
I know Dubai is one of the best city to Travel, but still, I do not go there. But I hope to travel there with my friend as soon as possible. This article makes me more crazy to visit Dubai.
Thanks for the article. Dubai its a place of magic, a place for entertainment and adventure, a lot of activities for children and whole lot of fun to go with family and friends, desert safari is just amazing car ride; bounce is a must go and for food and shopping 🙂
It is a very well written blog and a whole lot of information put together in one place. After reading this it has eased many jitters I was having. I am definitely going to refer this to plan my upcoming trip to Dubai! Thanks a lot again!
I hope you have a wonderful trip!
Great guide! Wish it was published a month ago. Last month on a visit to Dubai, we went out to Babs Al Shams for cocktails, dinner and a beautiful sunset. It was a nice escape from the concrete jungle of Dubai and it was only 45 minutes away by private car. Next trip, we are staying out there for a few weeks. ?

Love the article! I too am a solo female traveler. I have a question not necessarily about safety or harassment but about regulations. I heard that you have to be a certain age to be able to stay in Dubai if you are alone. I’m 24 years old and would like to go to Dubai but am I allowed to enter and stay in Dubai if I don’t have anyone with me the whole time?
Yes of course you are. There’s really no truth in that. I think Dubai is a very safe place to travel, especially solo. Tourism is one of their main sources of revenue and they take tourist safety really seriously.
Very good read with lots of insider info someone might not be able to find in a typical guidebook. Excellent tips! I will certainly be paying attention to these on my upcoming trip to Dubai ?
Great advice for having a beautiful trip to Dubai. As on coming month I am going for a trip to Dubai with my friends group. I hope your tips will be helping us to have memorable days out there.
