If you are planning a trip to Dubai, one thing I’d recommend is getting a travel scarf It’s lightweight and breathable, and you can use it to cover your head and neck from the sun. When heading to Dubai, pack smart: bring a universal travel adapter, a currency calculator for easy budgeting, a sunglass case carrier for protection, and a light jacket for cooler evenings. Water shoes are also a must-have, especially if you plan on doing any water activities like visiting the beach or going to a waterpark. They are slip-resistant and can protect your feet from hot sand or rough rocks. Lastly, a hydration pack is essential to keep you hydrated throughout the day. You can fill it up with water or any other beverage of your choice and carry it around with you without worrying about constantly stopping to buy bottled water. These items have saved me on my trips to Dubai, and I hope they’ll do the same for you.
