Your flights are booked, you’ve found a top-notch hotel, you just need to pack your bags and you’re off to Dubai. But wait, what are you putting in there? Every traveller to Dubai needs to be aware of the city’s rules around clothing, and what to expect when you get there. As a Muslim country following Sha’aria law, the United Arab Emirates has some strict rules around what you can and can’t wear. Dubai is more liberal than other places in the Middle East, but you’re still required to dress modestly – particularly in the older, more traditional parts of the city.
