Travel Tips for Visiting Dubai
Those visiting Dubai for the first (or tenth!) time are likely to want to check out the observation deck in the Burj Khalifa. It’s advised that you pre-book tickets to this attraction as demand is high year-round and booking your tickets in advance will allow you to avoid the huge queues of walk-in visitors.
It’s worth noting that it’s always polite to mind your manners when visiting Dubai, the city for the most part lives under Islamic law, so swearing in public or even on social media could land you a hefty fine or even deportation in extreme cases. The following quote from the Dubai government sums this rule up rather well “Dubai is tolerant and cosmopolitan, and all visitors are welcome. However, Islam is a way of life in the city, and therefore, tourists should adopt a certain level of cultural and religious sensitivity for the duration of their stay”.
Dubai now also has a much-needed metro system, conveniently connecting visitors and locals to key areas of the city. Tourists will need to purchase a “Red Nol Card” which can be topped-up with credit at each Metro station around the city. The card itself costs 2AED (about $0.55) and single ticket prices start at 4AED for adults (about $1.10).
