What to Wear in Dubai in November  

Dress for warm weather but wear clothing that covers your shoulders and your knees.

Do not wear clothes that are too tight or too revealing for both men and women.

Women can wear long dresses, tops, shirts, t-shirts, pants, hoodies, sweaters, and jeans.

It is best to avoid wearing any sleeveless shirts, sleeveless dresses, mini-skirts, and short shorts. 

Things to Do in Dubai in November

There should be plenty of sunny days to enjoy in Dubai this month, so it should be a great time for a pay-what-you-wish walking tour.

Since the weather will more than likely be nice, you can feel free to enjoy any outdoors activity of interest.

One idea is to take a desert safari, a service included at no extra cost with the Dubai Turbo Pass.

There will be a number of interesting festivals in November, including Mocha Fest, the Dubai Esports Festival, the Specialty Food Festival, and Taste of Dubai.

Needless to say, it's never a bad time to see sites such as the Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Opera House, and Qasr Al Watan, all which are included with the Go City Dubai Pass.

This pass also includes admission to popular family attractions like the Lost Chambers Aquarium, Ferrari World, LEGOLAND, MOTIONGATE, Aquaventure Waterpark, and many others.
