Although Dubai is the center of the world, and anyone can come and enjoy here, there are some rules of human behavior which must be respected, in order to avoid some really big trouble. So, no matter where you come from, or, which position in the society you have, no matter any other circumstance- the rules are the same for all the people who live in Dubai or have come to visit Dubai. In this article, you are going to be met with six behaviors that you must avoid while you are staying in Dubai, in order to save yourself from unlikely situations, and unlikely punishments:
Avoid wearing short clothes that cover just a little of your body
Yes, this great rule may save you from penalty. Often female visitors who come in Dubai are less dressed because of the hot weather and the high temperatures, but, there is always a way to dress less but decent. For example, do not wear short dresses and shorts, or some skirts that don’t cover too much of your body, and replace them with clothes made of lighter materials.
Pay Attention if you are old enough to drink alcohol
This is a strictly rule, as strictly as the other rules. It means that if you are under the age of 18, you can not drink alcohol drinks while you are in club. The inspections are very dedicated to their work, and their teams are often on the field. Also, you can not drink alcohol out of the club even if you are older that 18. Don’t even think to take drugs, because it is a really big criminal act.
Don’t take photos of strangers or their property, or photos of official buildings
You can not take photos of strangers, or of their property, for example, a picture of their beautiful car. That is a private stuff and if you take shot of them or their cars, you do a really big crime in Dubai. You can not take photos of official buildings also, but here you are warned to not take photos.
Don’t swim or sunbath topless
The beaches are meant to be visited by people dressed in swimming costumes, and bikinis are allowed too. But topless is such a strongly prohibited. Although some women want to feel Dubai Sun topless, it is not recommended, but it is punishable.
Must avoid sexual behavior
You just must avoid sexual behaviors. For example, there is a difference between kissing a friend, and kissing a boyfriend/girlfriend. Also, you must avoid hugging your partner in public, and avoid any other sexual act.
Avoid to ask ladies with their husbands
Even if you don’t know how to get to the center of the city, never think about to ask a women walking with her husband by her side. Always ask a man to give you directions, because accessing a women is strongly forbidden. You should not even look at her, not stare at her too, because you may be prosecuted and punished.
