Dubai is an excellent choice for a family holiday. It is one world-class city that delivers stellar hospitality, amazing adventures, and a shopping experience like none other. Offering a perfect blend of tradition and modernity, there are a lot of interesting places to visit in Dubai with family.

Culture in Dubai can be very clear-cut. How should you dress? Should you tip waiters? Can you drink alcohol? Here are 10 tips for safe travel and fun times in Dubai.

1. Visit between October and April

Dubai only has two seasons — hot and hotter. The months between October and April, known as the winter season, bring blue skies and perfect beach weather to the city. It’s also the rainy season, but typically rain showers don’t last too long so don’t let this factor affect your travel dates.

2. Look at flights six months ahead

International airlines generally release their cheapest seats about six months prior to departure dates. This doesn’t mean you necessarily need to buy your tickets that far ahead of time, but it’s a good idea to start looking and comparing prices. At the latest, you should buy your tickets at least one month in advance.

3. Book your hotel months in advance

Because Dubai is becoming such a popular vacation spot, and because October through April is the prime time for tourists to visit, you want to be sure you have a nice place, like these IHG hotels in Dubai, to stay before your arrival. In order to do so, make your Dubai hotel reservation a good two to three months in advance.

4. Show respect during Ramadan

If you visit during the holy month of Ramadan, celebrated during the ninth month of the 12-month Islamic calendar, respect the Muslims and their practice of fasting. This means you can’t eat, drink or smoke in public in front of them between sunrise and sunset.

5. Dress modestly

One of the most important things to know before visiting Dubai is what to wear. I’ll state the obvious first. Dubai is part of the United Arab Emirates, which is a Muslim country, so it’s especially important to think about bringing clothes that will allow you to dress modestly in certain areas. When it comes to dressing appropriately in Dubai, the first thing is to distinguish the difference between public and hotel spaces.

Public Areas

In public areas (e.g. malls, cafes, the airport, public transport), men and women are expected to dress modestly. Shoulders should be covered and too much leg, boob or bum is not a good look. Whilst nobody is going to call the fashion police if you’re showing too much skin, it’s far better to think like a savvy traveller and be respectful of the local culture. Pair a maxi skirt and t-shirt with some glamorous jewellery and sandals for a modest yet stylish look.

Hotels are seen as ‘international zones’ where standard holiday / beach / hot weather attire is perfectly acceptable. I wouldn’t advise you wander around the hotel lobby in your bikini and shorts, but all of that is absolutely fine by the pool and beach. There are also plenty of day beach clubs where you can lounge in your beachwear and bikinis all day.

6. Ask permission before taking pictures

Never take a picture of or with a stranger without their permission, unless you’re taking a scenic shot in a major touristy area. But never take a picture of a Muslim woman without her permission, and don’t take photos of any government buildings, airports, military installations, etc.

7. Should you tip?

Tipping isn’t really expected in Dubai, but it’s a common practice. Most restaurants will add a tip to your bill. Taxi drivers don’t expect to receive a tip, but luggage carriers and supermarket baggers are normally given a small tip for their services.

8. How much are taxies in Dubai?

Taxis are great for getting around the city; there are plenty of them and they’re a fairly cheap mode of transportation. But, don’t assume your taxi driver knows every street and restaurant in Dubai. They don’t always know the city as well as you think they should, so to make sure you end up where you want to be, give them references to big city landmarks, as they should know these.

Whilst prices in Dubai are similar to London standards, taxis are dirt-cheap. This makes taxis a cheap and incredibly handy way of getting around the city. There are endless taxis on the roads and it never takes more than a few minutes to flag one down. The meter starts at 5 dirhams. There are many companies who provide Luxury Car Rental Services across Dubai.

Dreamz Rent Car has wide range of luxury cars to travel with least charges.

9. Be careful where you consume alcohol

Alcohol is legal in Dubai; however, you can’t drink in public as public drunkenness and drinking and driving are prohibited. Also, you can’t buy alcohol for your own use without a permit, and you have to buy it from an establishment that has a license. Purchasing drinks at a bar or restaurant is no problem, just don’t try and leave drunk.

10. Dubai is incredibly forward-looking

Forget notions of a city fuelled solely by black gold; Dubai has successfully diversified its economy away from oil to become a thriving hub for transport, trade, finance and tourism. What’s more, the government is working with high-tech companies to develop self-driving cars, flying drone taxis and 3D organ printing. One of the most exciting partnerships is with Hyperloop One, which is developing a supersonic transport system that could link Dubai with Abu Dhabi in 12 minutes.

Dubai has become a monumental melting pot of cultures in the past decade. It has grown from a barren desert into one of the world’s most scenic cosmopolitan cities amassing an impressive population of 2.8 million residents. It is known for its luxury shopping and a thriving nightlife. Dubai is also fast becoming synonymous with modern architecture, widely popular for boasting the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, and the majestic sail-shaped Burj Al Arab that is routinely voted the world’s most luxurious hotel.

Apart from all the much-hyped about tourist hotspots, Dubai also comprises some discreet yet alluring sites that should be an integral part of your next trip to one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.

1. Jumeirah Beach Residence Walk


The Walk, a 2-mile long walkway along the beach, is one of the few buzzing outdoor tourist attractions in Dubai. It offers a wide variety of retail therapy options from designer brands to stalls of jewellery and handicrafts, alfresco dining and regular encounters with street entertainers. It is also a perfect spot for a leisurely stroll along the waterfront where a light breeze from the Arabian Gulf makes the experience more pleasurable.

The Walk is most frequented by visitors after dusk as daytime temperatures can be scorching. Another highlight of the Walk is the open-air cinema that operates one week a year where you enjoy the best of the movies under a starry sky. For details about this year’s film fest and other attractions on The Walk.

2.  Miracle Garden

Miracle Garden Dubai Pacakges

The name speaks for itself. Every year, the Emiratis out-do themselves and transform a wide area, in the middle of the desert, into a picturesque display of over 45 million flowers of about 60 different species.

Apart from an awe-inspiring display of flowers, some of them grown in the gulf region for the first time, the gardens also host different monuments adorned with flowers such as a huge clock, a replica of Burj Khalifa, tunnels etc. However, due to blistering summers, the Miracle Garden only opens its doors during the winters for an astounding number of up to 1 million visitors every year. Keeping water conservation in mind, the flowers are irrigated by reusing waste water through drip irrigation method.

Gold Souk Dubai Travel Packages

The Gold Souk consists of a network of covered alleyways that are lined with numerous jewellery shops selling gold, silver, diamond and other precious gems. A visit to the Gold Souk is an experience in itself even if one does not want to make a purchase, as the window displays of the shops make for a striking exhibit.

Due to strict government laws, the goods are authentic but you will have to haggle for the best price as souk vendors are notorious for quoting high prices!
