You've probably read the stories of foreigners being locked up in Dubai for public displays of affection, or being too drunk, or even being gay. But Dubai, on the whole, is not that conservative. You can wear whatever you feel comfortable in. You'll find expats and tourists from around the world drinking and canoodling in bars and clubs.
This is the Islamic world, which means weekends are Fridays and Saturdays. The beginning of the weekend means one thing: brunch. And this is no light snack; Friday brunches are typically vast feasts as sumptuousness as they are boozy. Many hotels put on huge buffets of every food imaginable on which you can gorge yourself before lurching back to the hotel room for a snooze.
