10 Ordinary Things You Should Never Think Of Doing In Public While In Dubai

Every country has its own set of laws that needs to be abided, even though it might be just ceremonial. What you consider as purely ordinary in your countries might be controversial to the extent that they are legally barred by the jurisdictions in other countries. Today, let’s look through the things you should never ever consider doing in public if you are in Dubai.

Drinking in Public

No! When it comes to boozing in public places, there are some set of rules that you must follow. While it is allowed for foreigners who have a license, the visitors can only consume alcohol in licensed hotels. However, never drink and drive unless you want to have one hell of a time in Dubai!

Usage of Drugs

Dubai has the strictest rules laid down for illegitimate selling of intoxicating substances. Hence, once you’re here, just SAY NO TO DRUGS! Well, say it everywhere because they’re extremely bad for health!

Street Dancing and Singing

Scantily Clad Dresses
