The Essential Dubai Tourists Tips You Need to Know
Hi, Sunil here to share essential Dubai tourists tips you need to know!
First things first; you must secure a valid visa so that you can enter Dubai.
There are several types of visas but you will only need to get a tourist visa which is valid for 30 days starting from the day you arrive in Dubai.
To get this type of visa you must be sponsored by either the hotel in which you are staying or the tour group that you will be traveling with.
When you get there you are sure going to want to loosen your budget as things can get pretty pricey there.
Most places take credit cards or debit cards with a Visa or MasterCard logo, but if you need cash there are plenty of banks available.
Just keep in mind that they are closed on Fridays. If you need an ATM, most banks have one available, but there are some located at almost 500 bus shelters as well.
Learning a few words in Arabic wont hurt you either. That is the most used language in the UAE but it is difficult to master. Most of the time though you wont have to worry about because most major establishments have employees that speak English, but it is nice to try to learn a few of the most popular words and phrases.
When it comes to transportation one of the best Dubai tourists tips to know is to skip hiring a car and simply take a taxi (though I personally prefer renting your own car if you want to go beyond just Dubai City). There are taxi stands everywhere and they are more apt to know how to maneuver the car to avoid any accidents.
There is a ton of traffic in Dubai and it can be difficult to navigate when you are unfamiliar with the roads. Taxis can take you anywhere, even to the dunes and far out places. They arent that expensive either as there are shared taxi stands where you can get a group of people to go in a van to save some money.
So before you get on the plane and head out on your much needed vacation, here are some Dubai tourists tips that you should keep in mind.
