    Survivor guide: Staying safe in Dubai


    In the last decade, Dubai has emerged as a major tourist destination, and thousands of Brits visit this exotic location each year. With year-round sunshine, luxury hotels and opulent shopping malls bursting with designer labels, it’s no wonder Dubai is an increasingly popular spot for tourists. If you’re planning a winter break or looking forward to the summer months already, here is a guide to avoiding travel accidents and staying safe in Dubai.

    Staying safe in Dubai

    As large cities go, Dubai is relatively safe, but there is always a risk of accidents overseas and it’s advisable to be wary of potential hazards so that you try and avoid dangerous situations and travel injuries. Here are some tips to make staying safe in Dubai easy:

    • change your money in advance or take cash out directly from an ATM rather than using exchange facilities on the streets
    • take care when packing; Dubai is a Muslim city and it is not appropriate to wear clothes that bare a lot of flesh
    • don’t flash expensive items, such as phones and cameras, around and try to leave valuables that you don’t need on you in your hotel room safe
    • don’t carry large amounts of cash on you
    • try to avoid public displays of affection; the laws related to this are very strict and some offences carry severe punishment
    • always ensure that you have travel insurance before you travel; this will provide you with peace of mind and financial assistance in the event of an accident abroad
    • take care when driving; pay attention to the speed limits and plan your route in advance to reduce the risk of road traffic accidents abroad
