Visitors and residents of Dubai are encouraged to dress modestly, especially during the holy month of Ramadan.
When in public, individuals should act with restraint – cursing, overt displays of affection, intoxication or aggressive behaviour are offensive to the Muslim culture and illegal.
Dubai has very low crime rates and is considered one of the safest cities in the world. That being said, people should exercise common sense and take precautions where possible.
