What to Pack: On your international flights, you are allowed two checked bags weighing up to 50lbs each. Make sure you have room for souvenirs that you will purchase. Dubai is a desert and is hot, so casual/dressy summer attire is in order. Because Dubai is in a Muslim country, clothing should be modest in order to respect local customs. Don’t forget snacks, reading materials, medications, extra eyeglasses, etc., in your carry-on bag and any other essential items that you made need during your flight/trip and may not be easily found.
Shopping: Shopping is a tourist sport in Dubai!! There is PLENTY of gold for everyone in Dubai!!! You will get the best prices haggling at the Gold Souk. The malls are extremely elaborate. Remember, if you see something you really like, GET IT, don't ponder because you might not see it back in the States. Your friends and relatives will be amazed at what you return with, so make sure you buy enough to spread around when you get back!

Electricity: Electrical sockets for 3-pinned plugs of 220V AC each are the standard throughout the UAE. If you will be using curling irons, shavers, battery charges, etc., brought from home, you must bring a converter.
