How many of us have at least a few travel plans on our bucket list? Almost everybody! Let’s be honest, most people love to travel. The thrill of visiting new and exciting places has an amazing feel to it. Not many things can truly replace it. On the other hand, how many of use enjoy planning and packing for our trips? We are afraid that the answer is: not many. However, in order to have a successful and stress-free trip, you must go through certain preparations and you must do some research. So, we want to help you with that. We are here to guide you on how to prepare for a trip to Dubai.

Do you need a visa?

In case you have a US passport, you do not need to have a Dubai visa. The same goes for Abu Dhabi. Surely, if you travel with a passport from a different country, you must do some research on whether you need a visa or not. There are certain guidelines and rules that must be followed in order to obtain a Dubai visa.

When should you visit Dubai

Before you decide to prepare for a trip to Dubai, you first must decide when would you like to go. Dubai’s winter months are the most optimal for tourists because the temperatures vary from the high 80s to the mid 60s. However, keep in mind that since this is the tourist season, the prices will be somewhat higher. On the other hand, during the summer months, the prices might be drastically lower. Nonetheless, keep in mind that it is common for temperatures to rise well into the 100s. So, if you wanted to find a private instructor who teaches yoga and practice yoga on the beach, do not travel to Dubai during the summer months. It will be too hot.

What to pack and what to wear once you arrive in Dubai

There are many things to do in Dubai, so you want to pack appropriate outfits for your trip. This topic causes stress to many people who plan to visit Dubai. However, you shouldn't worry too much. Even though Dubai is in the Middle East, it is a tourist location and most people wear regular clothes without experiencing any issues. You can even pack your skimpy bikinis for a maximum tan. Tourists only need to dress conservatively and similar to the locals if visiting religious landmarks. Also, do not forget your gym outfits. Dubai has personal trainers you can afford, so you do not have to feel like you are slacking while on vacation.

Foods and beverages in Dubai

Everything is extremely delicious and there is always a big variety in all restaurants and hotels. However, if you are a pork lover you might stay hungry, since the residence of Dubai are Muslim and they do not eat pork. As far as consuming alcohol, it is allowed in licensed restaurants, bars, and hotels.

Pack light and party hard. Have a great trip to Dubai and make some great memories. Hopefully, our mini-guide on how to prepare for a trip to Dubai was helpful. Bon voyage!
