5 Ultimate Packing List when Travelling to Dubai – Get prepared for the desert and sun!

Dubai has become a popular tourist destination over the past few decades by offering visitors the opportunity to witness the architectural marvels that have sprung up within this city as well as indulge in a well-deserved shopping spree. Dubai has something for everyone so come on over!


What to wear when travelling to Dubai

When travelling through Dubai you are likely to come across a variety of clothing requirements based purely on the number of different places you will be able to visit. You can expect to spend time at one of the Palm Jumeirah hotels such as the Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort or you can find yourself visiting a religious or governmental building.
Each occasion is sure to require its own set of clothes to take the time to plan out your itinerary when organizing your travel plans!


The types of footwear to bring along

As you enter Dubai it is recommended that you carry with you a set of sandals, flip flops and trainers. The sandals will come in handy when you have to walk for long distances as you look to get from place to place, regardless of whether you take a taxi or the metro. The trainers would come in handy when you go on outdoor excursions that take you through deserts and the scorching hot sands that come with it.


Thing's women should consider leaving at home

When in a new country it is important to be conscious and aware of the cultural standards that need to be met in order to harmoniously experience the nature of the nation.
This being said, people are expected to show certain standards in terms of the attire they choose to wear. It is recommended that you forgo the short shorts, skin-tight clothing or any transparent materials you choose to wear.


Items that may come in handy

When spending time in a location such as Dubai there is no harm in wearing any form of jewellery or accessories during your stay. It is also a great idea to pack some additional sunscreen and moisturizer, particularly if you are not accustomed to living in an extremely dry country.
It also goes without saying that a good pair of sunglasses and hat are a must for spending time in Dubai and the heat of the sun can be quite unforgiving.


What are the essentials?

When it comes to visiting a new city or country, it is vital to have all the necessary documents in order prior to your arrival. This means having all your passports and visa's in one location and handy should you need to present them to any authorities during your stay.
It is also recommended to keep some form of payment with you, whether it is a credit or debit card as the city will typically accept these payment methods, no matter where you may be. Additionally, it is also suggested to have an Arabic phrasebook handy as well!
