General Tips for Dubai Tour:
Advance Booking of Hotel:
People visits to Dubai in all 12 months of the year. And especially during months between April to October is consider best time to visit here. So, advance booking of your hotel is recommended. At least a month before your trip.
Just after In Dubai Arrival:
Unless you arrive by ship you will fly into Dubai International Airport getting through immigration can take an hour or more. As you in one of the busiest Airport of the World. As a first tip you should use electronic fast gates for which you have to pre-register. Just after coming out of Airport, if you book hotel already then most of Hotels provide shuttle service otherwise you should follow this tip. You have multiple options like limousine service common in this city, you can use Metro (all Metros here are fully automated and driverless). My personal recommendation to view and enter city is by taxis. They are fairly cheap it will cost you 2 Durham’s per kilometer which is nearly 0.5$. Make sure to get an official taxi with a fare meter rather than private taxis. Taxis with pink roof are reserved for woman traveling alone. If the sign of taxi on roof is yellow this means taxi is free and red means occupied.
Dress Moderation in Dubai:
UAE is an Islamic state and Muslims dress is very decent. Try not to wear tight, short or transparent dress.
Alcohol is Prohibit:
Alcohol is prohibited in Islam so is in Dubai. You can only purchase from bars plus if you have a permit. Drinking in public places is strictly prohibited.
Taking Pictures In Dubai:
Generally, if you are at any place of world, taking pictures of someone without permission is not a good habit. And in Islamic countries you should be more precautious. Make sure taking touristy area before taking pictures. On the other hand, never take picture of Muslim women without her permission.
