Most visits to the UAE are trouble-free, but as FCO warns that the risk of terrorism is now high and you should also take sensible precautions to protect yourself and your belongings. Make sure to read UAE safety travel advice before starting your trip. Be alert for anything suspicious when in public places – especially those that attract crowds or high numbers of tourists.
General security tips include using only reputable taxi company or public transport. Female tourists should take extra care when walking or travelling alone, particularly at night. Do not plan a trip to the desert alone since it might be dangerous and it is easy to get lost. Instead travel in convoy with other cars, take enough water and a mobile telephone. Stay hydrated. Bring modest clothes with long sleeves and avoid getting sunburnt. Be very careful when you are driving in the UAE. There is a high rate of traffic accidents. Pedestrians should also take great care and cross roads using designated pedestrian crossings only. Keep in mind that vehicles often don’t stop at zebra crossings marked on the roads. It is critical to know that when staying in the UAE, you should respect local traditions, customs, laws and religions and these are very different to the UK and other European countries.
