How safe is Dubai?

You should be more worried about getting your husband or wife stolen than being robbed or mugged 😂

Ever since I moved Dubai, I feel it's a very safe place with strict laws which everyone abides by. People of different nationalities lives together freely. You are free to wear any outfit you desire except the religious places where certain dress code is important. The city is quite lively even in night.

Depends of areas, strictly not recommended Deira, Burjuman, JVT and any other cheap rent locations, also need keeping attention to your own things and have in mind there a lot of tourists who normally can go back to their countries with your bag, wallet or etc, but in general Dubai is most safety place ever

I've lived in Dubai for many years now. I've travelled to over 30+ countries so far and can hand on heart say Dubai is one of the safest countries in the world. As a female, it is a very safe city to live and work in. It is an extremely safe and vibrant city to travel and explore as a solo female traveller. As a female, you can go out for a walk in the middle of the night on your own and you will not feel unsafe whatsoever!

Dubai is a very beautiful place, 100% safe you can walk on the streets even at 2am. The beaches are clean and very safe, with a good breeze and nice waves. Anyone can walk on the beach alone without any harassment. I didn’t spot any beach boys!

Pretty safe, wouldn’t recommend to leave personal things on public beaches but overall nothing to worry about. People are welcoming and helpful as well. The only taxis drivers can try to make money on tourists taking a very long road or extra circle , so follow the map better and don’t be afraid to mention that

Dubai is probably the safest city I have ever been in. In nine years of living there I have never had anything stolen or had any physical issues. Everyone who loves there comments on how safe it is in comparison to other cities.

I was born and raised here, the place is genuinely safe. The city areas are well populated with people and have lots of police patrols etc so you don't have to worry even late at night. It will just be a culture shock cause of the various cultures and nationalities that live here.

Dubai is super safe, everywhere there are cameras but still you need to be aware of your surroundings. I still don’t go out alone in the dark except some places like Dubai Marina where it’s always full of people. If you visit Deira (old Dubai), this place is totally different than the rest. And, be aware, sellers there will be trying to scam you.

Dubai is generally a very safe place for women but there have been increasing reports of attacks on women over the past few years. Whilst it is safe, it is equally important to keep your wits about you. Only use the registered taxis and make sure you lock your front door etc. There is never really any pick pocketing

Dubai is a very beautiful place, 100% safe you can walk on the streets even at 2am. The food is so so good, with a-lot of cuisine choose from;I was actually spoilt for choice. Being a cosmopolitan city, you can enjoy a diverse range of cultures, languages, and food. The beaches are clean and very safe, with a good breeze and nice waves. The public transport is great, the bus and metro very functional and operate until midnight. Taxis are also available, but if you would like to save a few coins, hop onto the metro! For ladies, there is free alcohol for ladies on ladies nights..just check up the clubs offering free drinks for ladies! I had a blast with lots of free wine! However, during the winter months, November, December, January and February, it can get cold, especially at night.

For the most part, I felt safe.... There are many activities, depends on budget and personal preference. However in hot summer-months might be somewhat limited, because it gets hot for outdoor activities... Restaurants are mostly clean, the prices are ok to expensive...you can find restaurants, snack bars and fast food chains everywhere..... You can get rid of the budget quickly.... I stayed in Hostel... I used mostly Metro, sometimes Taxi, i walked also a lot...i used Google Maps to find spots

Group travel experience

Dubai is really a lovely place for a vacation. It took me a few days to get used to the heat, but despite that, I enjoyed my stay. I first stayed at First Collection JVC, and then moved with friends to the Rove Hotel, around the Marina axis, to have access to all the entertainment places. The food was fine, and the view from my hotel room was extraordinary. Jet skiing, shooting range, and desert safari were my favorite attractions. I will definitely visit this place again.
