IMPORTANT THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE TRAVELING TO THE UAE

The United Arab Emirates is a must visit country on any travellers bucket list, the UAE is vibrant, cultural, flashy, rich, amazing, glamorous. You are sure to enjoy your time in the Emirates! If you are planning to visit the UAE anytime soon here are some important things you should know before travelling to the UAE

The weekend’s in the UAE are Friday and Saturday, you might be wondering wait why but the Muslim world observes the weekend on different days. Sunday is a working day and children go to school on that day because in the UAE Sunday is observed as a start of a new week. Malls and restaurants will be open later on the weekend rather than other days. The malls will be busy though as lots of people will be visiting so make sure you plan your visit accordingly.

The UAE is a Muslim country which means you have to dress modestly and follow the dress code in public areas and in mosques. In public places you should dress without showing too much of your body. Don’t wear skirts or shorts that are too short or clothes that are see through.

Never take photos of people without permission unless you are taking a photo or video in a touristy area such as the fountains at Burj Khalifa. However, taking photos without someone’s consent can is strictly prohibited and is an invasion of the person’s privacy and is punishable by a fine of 500,000 Dirhams and imprisonment.

The UAE can be pretty toasty so the best time to visit is between October and April. If you want to visit a beach visit between these months because the weather is not as hot and you will still be able to enjoy yourself without the worry of extreme heat on your head. There is a spike in tourism in these months especially so it is best to plan your visit in advance.

If you visit the country during the holy month of Ramadan, celebrated on the ninth month of the Islamic Lunar Calendar, respect the practise of fasting and the Muslims. In this month, you can not eat, drink or smoke in public but you CAN eat in designated areas. Avoid any offensive behavior as Ramadan is the time for reflection.

Hotels may serve limited food in designated areas. Supermarkets will stay open to buy food and drink but consume in private away from other people. In Ramadan, you may spot cordoned off tents where food and water may be consumed. In addition, attractions may have reduced hours. For all you shopping lovers, like me!, there are huge and I mean huge Ramadan sales!!

(IMPORTANT: Showing Public Display of Affection is not allowed in the UAE)
