Expatriates relocating abroad to Dubai ought to become aware of the customs and laws of the United Arab Emirates.
Cheapflights.co.uk travel expert Oonagh Shiel explained that beachwear may be appropriate at the seaside, in a swimming pool or within resorts, but should not be worn in public areas such as shopping malls.
Men ought to cover their legs above the knees and women must cover their legs and shoulders in these areas, she explained.
Furthermore, alcohol consumption is restricted, the specialist added, noting that while it can be consumed in hotel and restaurant bars, it is illegal to drink in public and can cause offence in the nation.
Describing the city as "conservative", Ms Shiel said that kissing and other "public displays of affection" are also frowned upon.
While it is a modern resort, it is still a Muslim city, so visitors and expatriates ought to be observant of its traditions, she stated.
The UK's Foreign and Commonwealth Office pointed out that books, magazines and videos can be censored in the Emirates, while pork products, pornography and narcotics are illegal to import.
