Each country has got its set of rules and regulations. What might be considered as purely normal in other countries are controversial in some to an extent that they are legally banned by the jurisdictions! Today, let’s talk about Dubai and the things that you must never dare to do once you are in Dubai!

Public Drinking

No! No! No! When it comes to boozing in public places, there are some set of rules that you must follow. While it is allowed for foreigners who have a license, the visitors can only consume alcohol in the licensed hotels. However, never drink and drive unless you want to have one hell of a time in Dubai!

Drug Consumption

Dubai has the strictest rules laid down for illegitimate selling of intoxicating substances. Hence, once you’re here, just SAY NO TO DRUGS! Well, say it everywhere because they’re extremely bad for health!

Street Singing And Dancing

If you are one of those over enthusiast creatures who love to dance and sing in public, well, Dubai is not the place for you to go! They abhor loud street music.

Scantily Clad Dresses Might Be A Problem

There are certain places in Dubai where scant dresses may be a strict no no.

Public Display Of Affection

It is not a country where people will go all “aww” for your PDA! So, save it for the hotel!

Photography

Many travellers especially the bloggers are always keen to take photographs of people wearing the national attire. But you should be really respectful towards their culture and tradition, and always ask for their permission before clicking pictures!

Mind Your Tounge!

Well, you can’t use abusive or vulgar language publically, not even amongst yourselves! Dubai has zero tolerance on such nuisance, so mind your tongue!

Watch Your Wallet

Though Dubai has got low crime rate, some opportunistic theft does take place on the busy streets! So, mind your wallet and be careful!

Don’t eat in public during Ramadan

In the holy month of Ramadan, people regardless of any religion are not allowed to eat in public spaces. Even chewing gum is considered disrespectful. Pregnant ladies and children are exempted from this rule.

Don’t Use Left Hand

People in Dubai don’t use left hand to open the doors, shake hands and eat! They consider it unclean, so refrain yourself from doing it!
