ImageDubai is largely a secure city and law breakers are dealt with severely. It is safe to venture out late at night though ceratin areas may be a bit dubious. Women also enjoy this particular freedom here though one should always exercise caution and common sense to avoid any untoward incident. Though Dubai has no dress restrictions for women and the abaya is not compulsory, it is advisable to remember that this is an Islamic state and modest dress will be appreciated. Also one should take care not to consume alcohol in public.
Rash driving and speeding are the causes of accidents and deaths so take care when you are on the road especially if you have rented a car and are driving yourself around.

Health

Dubai is a very neat and clean city and does not pose any sort of health hazards to tourists.Travel immunization is not needed unless you are traveling from a health-risk area. There are very few mosquitoes in the city area and there is virtually no risk of malaria. If you are considering camping near the mountains or exploring in the wadis and date groves make sure your skin is not exposed. Also, Dubai gets extremely hot in the summer months and exposure to the sun can cause you heat burn so take adequate precaution. Also de-hydration could be an issue so make sure you drink plenty of water and carry a water bottle around with you. World class medical facilities ae available should you require it. The ambulance response system is also very efficient.
Contact your hotel or the embassy of your country for recommendations for health care personel.
