We understand that how impossible it is to think of Dubai without thinking of its high-rises. But believe us, there is much more Dubai has to offer for you beyond those skyscrapers. This city is the melting pot of various cultures, traditions and ethnicities. If you take a look around you, then Dubai will surely fascinate you with its history and heritage.
2. Burj Khalifa offers a view to die for
Burj Khalifa is the most iconic building of Dubai. This 828 meter structure is the tallest man-made building in the world and surely it dominates the skyline of this city with its towering presence. When you are planning to book a Dubai tour package, don’t forget to ask your tour operator to arrange for a visit to the observation deck on 124th level of Burj Khalifa. On a clear day, the view of the city and its surrounding from the deck is simply stunning.
3. Absolutely no need to wear a ‘burkini’
When it comes to maintain its heritage and traditions, Dubai takes a conservative take on preserving every bit of it. Local people in Dubai are pretty comfortable with stringent laws that may seem pretty uncomfortable to foreign travellers. In spite of being an Islamic country, UAE doesn’t impose its laws on tourists. Women from other countries don’t need to wear a ‘burkini’ at all and western dressing is perfectly alright. But avoid flashing too much of your skin unless you are enjoying at beaches of Dubai.

While you are enjoying a Dubai tour package, make sure to book taxis to reach your destinations. You will be glad to hear that taxis are not at all expensive in Dubai and they charge fair. Tipping your taxi driver is a common and healthy gesture in Dubai.

Alcohol is there are it is plentiful. Although the sale of alcohol is limited to bars, clubs and hotel restaurants in Dubai but travellers don’t face slightest of problem to get their hands on alcohol. Don’t drive or walk on the streets when you are excessively drunk. Such act is not at all encouraged in Dubai and can lead to legal hazards.
