10 Dress Conservatively at All Times
In Nigeria, there is nothing that prevents a woman from wearing a skimpy bikini on the beach but things work a little differently in Dubai. To some extent, revealing clothing is unlawful in Dubai. It’s not to say that you can’t wear a bikini in Dubai, but it’s best to be as conservative as possible. If you are at a private resort or hotel than you are allowed to wear what you want. Make sure that your clothing reaches at least just above the knee and that your shoulders are covered when you are out in public.
9 On a budget
It is considered to be one of the most expensive places to visit. But that doesn’t mean that you have to be a celebrity or a millionaire to go there. Seeing Dubai can be done on a budget. There are plenty of millennial-friendly hotel chains like Hilton Garden Inn that are booming right now. There is also the metered taxis that are cheap to use to get you from one place to another. The metro is also a cheap avenue of traveling around. If you want cheap places to eat you can consider Al Rigga Road in Deira and restaurants on Al Muraqqabat Road.
