Dubai: Your Complete Travel Guide to this Land of Excess
If you’ve been dreaming of skiing and suntanning in the same day, drunk on $5k bottles of Cristal, Dubai is your opulent paradise.
What to pack?
If you are travelling to Dubai in the summer, I strongly advise you to pack a generous amount of sunscreen, tank tops and shorts, because it will get really hot. Don’t forget to bring your swimming wear, since you definitely wouldn’t want to miss out on the beaches and the water parks. And like I have mentioned before, you don’t need to worry about being dress coded anywhere. None of the tourist destinations in Dubai have any dress codes that you need to follow.
If you are travelling here during the winter, bring jeans and some sweaters. You should pack at least one warm jacket, because it can get alarmingly cold in the desert at night.
Make sure to pack at least a couple heels and glam dresses for all the fancy clubs and restaurants you’re going to be frequenting.
Dubai is a wonderful place, packed with heritage, one of the world’s tallest buildings and also luxury shopping outlets that you don’t want to miss. It’s the perfect place to fill your Instagram feed with, to get so lavishly tired that your feet start hurting and to cure that by going into one of the best exotic spas.
So hurry up and start packing! And for God’s sake, don’t forget the sunscreen!
