Less than hour’s drive from the resort is the bustling metropolis of Dubai, which is home to some of the world’s best shopping, dining and culture. Pack a few staples for your trip into the city.
- Comfortable walking shoes are an essential for exploring any big city, but Dubai is fairly style-conscious, so you may want to skip the sneakers in favor of fashionable flats.
- A wide-brimmed hat is a smart choice for daytime explorations — the sun’s rays are quite strong year-round.
- The UAE is a decidedly conservative country, so modest attire is recommended as you explore the region. Opt for pants and long-sleeve shirts made in lightweight fabrics to stay comfortable in the warm weather.
