What to put in your suitcase when travelling in Dubai

Have you thought of packing long-sleeved jumpers and closed shoes? Yes really, you need to be prepared for everything in Dubai!

Dubai can quickly take you by surprise: between the 50°C outdoors and the 20°C of air-conditioned shopping malls, you can quickly fall ill and ruin your holidays. 

  1. Sun cream, a hat and sunglasses.
  2. Open shoes for beaches and visits.
  3. Closed shoes for desert excursions.
  4. A jumper for rainy days (rare, but possible) and shopping malls.
  5. An England/USA power adapter.
  6. A camera for your souvenirs.
  7. Small objects, typical of England (not too heavy), which can be used as gifts if you're invited to locals' homes.
  8. For women, a scarf and light pieces of clothing which cover the shoulders and knees.
