Police in Abu Dhabi, UAE have begun distributing a behavioral guide in different languages for tourists arriving on cruise ships.  The behavioral guide aims to provide tourists with an overview of UAE’s tourism culture, traditions and customs.    Abu Dhabi is a modern city that welcomes visitors from around the world. However, as it is also a Muslim city, there are certain factors to take into consideration in terms of dress code and behaviour.  For example, public displays of affection should be minimal – holding hands is acceptable but kissing and hugging in public is not.   Religion also plays a significant role in the culture of Abu Dhabi so noise disruptions, bad language, making obscene gestures and showing disrespect in any way to Abu Dhabi’s religion or its leaders are all forbidden and may land a visitor in legal trouble.
