Staycations are a great time to catch up on local culture, dine at a fantastic new restaurant, or try a new spa treatment. Dubai offers itself up to the staycationer by always having something new and exciting to do, so make the most of our city by choosing outfits that can transition easily from day to night by quickly trading in shoes and accessories for more glamorous versions.
Conservative pieces are the smartest thing to pack if you’re going on a road trip across the Emirates, as some destinations have stricter dress codes than others. That means it’s better to err on the side of caution by including light sweaters, layering pieces, and jackets, which will also help keep you warm in some of the cooler Emirates.
There are plenty of destinations within five hours of Dubai that offer the best in island life, like quiet beachfronts and crystal clear waters. Sri Lanka and other hotspots are ideal for unwinding during the long weekend. Be prepared for the climate with cute sandals, lightweight separates, and a colorful bathing suit.
