Traveling alone in Dubai is far from boring.
Many activities, visits and discoveries are possible as solo travelers. Between fun and relaxation, you have the choice.
Dubai offers a lot to explore, many unique sites such as desert safaris, old traditional souks, shopping malls, beautiful beaches, beach clubs, amazing water parks, and more.
Whether you choose the mild period (October to April) or the warm period (May to September), you can alternate between indoor and outdoor activities on your own.
The United Arab Emirates is a land of many expatriates. It is one of the safest countries in the world, for example as a woman traveling alone you are safe. Many languages are spoken in Dubai but English is the main language (Arabic is the official language).

Whether you are a man or a woman, you will be able to travel to Dubai alone in complete safety. Dubai has very strict laws against crime, so you will feel safe whether you go out alone during the day or night.

Crime rates are super low, robberies and violent crimes are extremely rare. Our experience: as expatriate women in Dubai, we have never felt unsafe here (never had anything stolen and never felt in danger of any type of attack). Also video surveillance is common in downtown Dubai.

As a solo woman in Dubai, rest assured that you are in a country where the laws are taken very seriously.

Dubai is accessible to all budgets for solo travelers. If you are looking for luxury tourism and if you have a high budget, you will find your happiness. If you have a small or medium budget, many hotels, excursions, activities, restaurant will make you happy too.
