Good tips before you travel into Dubai.
In Dubai it is not normal to drink alcohol because of there religion, but Dubai is dependent on their tourists so they have made many compromises, in hotels and restaurants 'belonging' or nearby hotels, they serve alcohol etc. If you are a resident you can get a license to buy alcohol and a tip for residents as well as vacationers, you can per person bring 4 liters of alcohol into Dubai every time you arrive at the airport. Pork is only served in a few five star hotel restaurants or buyable in supermarkets - normally - but there are ways to get around that, see my 'Shopping' section. Finally and this is a downside seen from lover's perspective, you cannot show physically attraction in public areas in Dubai. No kissing, hugging or holding hands, if you are a tourist they normally overlook it, because they see you as an 'ignorant tourist' but if you are a resident, you will be punished for it if anyone sees. When you go out, remember to wear proper clothes. It is frowned upon to wear small skirts and tops. Some places are stricter than others. If you go visit a mosque, wear clothes that cover your knees up to the neck and shoulders, as well as when you go to a mall, the same is required. If you go to and from the beach it is not necessary. If you just make sure to consider your surroundings, not to offend anyone then you'll be fine.
