Discount Flights To The UAE: Top Advice For Middle Eastern Travel
When travelling afar and to a land unknown, you’d certainly be wise to familiarise yourself with the local laws and customs so you know what to expect and so you know you won’t run into any trouble while away. And this is certainly true for those about to book discount flights to Dubai.
In the United Arab Emirates, customs and laws are very different to what you’re familiar with here in the UK. You must make sure that your actions aren’t offensive to anyone, especially during the holy month of Ramadan (which takes place during the ninth month of the Muslim lunar calendar). You could be given a serious penalty for something that’s not even illegal in the UK so make sure you know exactly what you can and can’t do, and make sure you behave in a respectful manner.
You’re sure to want to have a drink or two while on holiday in Dubai, so make sure you know where you can do this to avoid running into trouble. Alcoholic beverages are served in licensed clubs and hotels, but remember that it’s a punishable offence to drink or be drunk in public. If you’re found to be under the influence of alcohol while even just in transit through the UAE, you could also be arrested.
Bear in mind as well that electronic cigarettes are currently illegal in the UAE and you could find your vape stick is confiscated at the border.
Dress code is another really important matter to consider before packing your suitcase and heading off to climes unknown. Women should ensure that they’re dressed modestly when out in public areas such as shopping centres. The tops of your arms and legs must be covered and your underwear should not be visible. Only ever wear your swimsuit on the beach or at swimming pools.
Public displays of affection are frowned upon – and you’re sure to have heard of arrests being made for people kissing in public – so just make sure you’re careful.
Exercise caution when taking photos while on holiday as well. People should never be photographed without their permission and snaps of government buildings and military facilities are also prohibited. Bird watchers and plane spotters should be particularly careful as actions could be misinterpreted if you’re not careful.
