shopping and dress

by mingi9

Is it true that you cannot go shopping in dubai on Fridays and do western women on holidays have to dress like the locals?

Re: shopping and dress

by colin_bramso

Hi, welcome to VT.

Neither are true. Friday is the weekend so a few shops are closed but the vast majority are open (although they open a little later in the morning).

No-one HAS to wear any particular clothes, the choice of clothing is for each person to decide. You can wear your normal clothing as long as you respect the local culture and it's not overly revealing (low tops, short shorts).

I have a Tip on dress, with photos, under Dubai Local Customs. To reach it you click on my name, follow the links to Dubai, then to Tips.

Re: shopping and dress

by JessH

Is it true that you cannot go shopping in dubai on Fridays?

No, that's not true. Shopping Malls are open on Fridays, so are supermarkets / grocery stores. As Colin said, some independant shops are closed or (like Karama, Gold Souk, Spice Souk, etc.) only open around 5 in the afternoon.

Do western women on holidays have to dress like the locals?
No, just make sure that you women are dressed decently (long trousers or skirts at least down to the knees, not showing too much cleavage, shirts that cover the shoulders.

Re: shopping and dress

by al2401

No to both with considerations - you are in a muslim country and Friday is their holy day so some of the shops may not be open, or shut until the evening. It is also a economy that now relies in part on tourism. Regards dress - yes, dress like the most of the people - conservative western dress is fine. Sleeves and 3/4 pants or below knee skirt are ideal. ie no cleavage, shoulders or knees - the beach is a different matter but change before leaving.

Travel Tips for Dubai

World Archipelago

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The World is a man-made archipelago of 300 islands constructed in the rough shape of a map of the landmasses of the Earth, located 4 kilometers off the coast of Dubai. The World islands are composed mainly of sand dredged from Dubai's shallow coastal waters, and is one of several artificial island developments in Dubai. The project was originally conceived by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai.
I saw the construction of the archipelago from the Jumeirah beach.

You can watch my high resolution photo of Dubai on the Google Earth according to the following coordinates 25° 8' 31.07" N 55° 11' 9.29" E or on my Google Earth Panoramio Dubai skyline from Burj Al Arab 4.

Leave space in your suitcase for all your shopping

by helen2001

You can buy everything you need and will probably want in Dubai. So if you know that you cannot resist the shopping leave some space in your case or buy another in Dubai. If you are staying at one of the beach resort hotels you will not need to bring your own beach towels. Always supplied for you

The voltage in Dubai is 220v and in most hotels you will find the same 3pin sockets that we have in the uk. So you can bring your own hairdryer etc without need for the convertor sockets.

Shopping mall in Deira

by SWFC_Fan about Deira City Centre

Deira City Centre is the largest shopping mall in Dubai, offering hundreds of shops and eating places, as well as a cinema complex, a bowling alley and a hotel.

Amongst its many stores are:

Carrefour,
Debenhams,
Woolworths,
IKEA,
Virgin Megastore,

not to mention dozens of well-known fashion shops, elctronics shops and jewellers.

Amongst the numerous restaurants and cafes, you can find:

3 branches of Starbucks,
Haagen -Dazs,
Subway,
Baskin Robbins,

as well as the obligatory McDonalds, KFC and Burger King.

The mall is air-conditioned throughout, providing a contrast to the outdoor heat experienced for much of the year.

There is ample car parking in the many car parks surrounding the mall.

Opening times:

Saturday to Thursday: 10.00am - 10.00pm
Friday: 2.00pm - 10.00pm My personal favourite shop is Carrefour. There are always a number of special offers on, including bargain bins of CDs and DVDs and substantial reductions in the price of clothing.

Info on the latest special offers can be found on www.carrefouruae.com

Irish Tipples

by Sophie1980 about Irish Village

Popular with expats; good food at average prices which either arrives immediately or after an hour; outside seating with a lake; gets very crowded as it's in a restaurant complex called 'Century Village' and next to the Dubai Tennis Stadium; staff can be quite rude. Casual. Come as you are.

Dubai International Airport

by pakistanibrain

Dubai International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world. It serves as a major hub in the Middle East region and also as a connection point for flights between different European and Asian destinations.

The airport has 2 runways, however one of them is currently closed for construction. Despite that, flights arriving and departing in Dubai are usually on time or just delayed by a few minutes.

Most of the flights arrive at Terminal 1, but a few small airlines operate from Terminal 2, which of course is much smaller. Terminal 3 of the airport is currently under construction and is scheduled to be completed in 2008.
