Women-- It is recommended not to wear mini-skirts, baring tops, and short shorts. In more traditional areas such as villages and souks, markets and such other areas, short skirts are not considered appropriate for women, and long-skirts below knee length are preferred. Deep neck lines are strictly prohibited. Women do not have to cover their heads, faces and hair when in public, but when visiting a Mosque, women must cover their hair, bodies and legs, although covering the face is not a must.   Men –Shouldn’t wear shorts out in public, though are unlikely to be in trouble if they do; and no matter how hot it gets, must wear a shirt. T-shirts with offensive slogans or pictures, gestures, or obscene language that might cause religious or cultural offense are not acceptable. When visiting a Mosque, men are required to be dressed in long trousers.

Avoid the fines by staying in the appropriate area on each train.

  19. What is the Currency/ Exchange Rate? The currency of Dubai is (Dhs or AED  Arab Emirate Dirham). One Dirham can be divided into 100 fils (the equivalent of cents) and the coins can be obtained in values of 1, 5, 10, 25, 50 fils and 1 Dirham. The notes come in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, and 1,000 Dirhams. It is suggested to always have Dhs 100 ready before leaving the airport in case you need cash for a hotel in Dubai, transportation and other smaller expenses here and there. Like the cases of most currencies, exchange rates may vary. But when markets are stable, the currency of Dubai is Dhs 3.65 per USD $ 1.  If you need to convert your Dirham to USD currency, you can exchange it in banks and exchange houses all over the city or go to the malls or some of the hotels in Dubai and you are sure to find one. It would be a good idea to exchange your currency at the airport since the Dubai airport has better exchange rates.

  20. What Religious observations should I be aware of?  Dubai is in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the UAE is a Muslim country. The culture is based on a deeply rooted belief in Islam and centers on the family. There are Mosques scattered throughout the city and you will hear the call to prayer alarm 5 times a day. Mosques are busiest on Fridays; the official religious day in Dubai.

  22. Am I free to take pictures/video? Taking pictures is widely accepted with the exception of photographing people. You should never take pictures of Muslim women, and for men, you should ask permission first which is usually granted. It is very offensive if you just take random pictures of people.

  23. Is the water safe to drink?  The tap water is usually safe but there is plenty of mineral water available in hotels and restaurants.

  24. What days are considered weekdays, weekends? Thursday and Friday are weekends in Dubai, though Friday is the only official holiday.
