Of course, those who love to shop can browse some of the malls and shopping centres around the city. In a city as large and busy as Dubai, it pays to put safety at the top of your priority list when you visit.
Safety guide when visiting Dubai
Many people are aware of the strict laws in Dubai but it is wise to familiarise yourself with some of the cultural customs before you go on your trip. As an Islamic city, religious practices feature heavily in everyday life meaning that some strict rules apply. Stick to drinking in hotels as drinking in public is not acceptable. Public displays of affection could lead to an arrest and clothing should cover the stomach, shoulders and back. There are other strict rules of etiquette which you should adhere to to avoid offending the locals. Of course, when you are taking part in any activities, the staff should ensure you are safe at all times. The travel company you booked with have a duty of care to you which means that accidents should be prevented at all times. This includes in your hotel, during your flight and during any activities booked as part of your holiday package
