When out and about in the town and villages, swimwear should not be worn. Cover your shoulders and knees, don’t kiss in public or drink alcohol on the streets. Ask permission before you photograph Arab men or women. Local taxis are the best way to get around, but probably better than the bus service. Otherwise, hire a car and go where you want at any time.
So much has changed in Dubai since the 1980’s. It has now grown up, but some of the old town is still there. Visit the spice souq, the gold souq (where 24 carat gold is sold according to weight). The Palm Islands are a sight to behold, but are now gradually sinking into the sea.
If you are looking for an active holiday, trips across the desert in a 4WD or sandboarding will blow your breath away. Go for a bit of wadi bashing. Wadis are dry river beds (soaked by occasional rain), ride the quad bikes through them – exhilarating!
Windsurf, swim, sunbathe, people (or celeb) watch from the local cafes. See the city from the air with a cable car ride.
Dubai is the place to shop, shop and shop. Trendy boutiques, latest fashions and ok prices. If you want to buy any goods in the souqs, haggle hard, but be wary if you buy anything electrical or electronic. May not work when you get home, and you will have no guarantee.
Al Ain Zoo is improving in quality and quantity – over 4000 mammals, birds and reptiles spread over 40 hectares. Worth a look.
Sharjah, with its wonderful sandy beaches and warm blue waters is just to the place to relax. Shopping is not a problem, super shopping malls selling tax free fashion, handicrafts and souvenirs.
Jumeirah, up to date, but still retains its lovely white sandy beaches. This is the place to enjoy watersports, or play golf.
So, go on, treat yourself to a holiday of a life time. Book a late deal, and give yourself something to look forward to.
