What should I pack when moving to Al Raha Beach?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Al Raha Beach to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Al Raha Beach, you should pack lightweight and breathable clothing due to the hot and humid climate. Include items such as shorts, t-shirts, and light dresses. However, remember to respect the local culture and dress modestly, especially when visiting public places. Pack a good pair of sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen to protect yourself from the intense sun. Also, include a swimsuit for the beach and pool, and a light jacket or shawl for cooler evenings or heavily air-conditioned indoor areas. Don't forget to pack comfortable shoes for walking, as well as a pair of dress shoes for more formal occasions. Bring all necessary toiletries, but keep in mind that most items can be easily purchased there. Pack all your essential documents such as passport, visa, driver's license, and medical records. If you take prescription medication, bring an adequate supply along with a copy of your prescription. Bring your electronics like your phone, laptop, and chargers. Also, consider bringing a power adapter as the UAE uses a different plug type. Pack some home comforts, like photos or favorite snacks, to help you settle in. Lastly, don't forget to pack a positive attitude and an open mind to embrace the new culture and experiences," remarked another expat in Al Raha Beach, the UAE.
