General FAQs
What are the Dos and Don’ts to keep in mind while visiting Abu Dhabi?

Abu Dhabi's culture is firmly rooted in Arabia's Islamic traditions. Islam is more than a religion; it is a way of life that governs everyday events from what to wear to what to eat and drink.

The attitude toward clothing in Abu Dhabi is relaxed, but visitors (men and women) are advised to show respect for local customs when in public by avoiding excessively revealing attire. Discretion and polite elegance are the watchwords.

Women play a full and active part in the life of the emirate and indeed the United Arab Emirates as a whole, and experience no special restrictions of dress or behaviour in day-to-day life. Abu Dhabi and the UAE are also exceptionally safe for women travelling on their own. Whatever time of day or night, moving about town is never a problem.

Local service personnel have a fluent command of English and other major international languages, so when you have something to say, you will be readily understood.
