Traditional Arab dress will help you protect skin from sweltering weather in the Emirates and feel as if your are a citizen of the city.
How to buy Abaya in Dubai
Abaya is an Arab woman dress that is long and sleeved. Muslim women wear abaya in public places. They put it on their usual clothes and quite often they combine the dress with a kerchief covering hair and neck, but the face remains open.

Oddvizer thinks that abaya can serve not just as a souvenir from the Emirates, but really functional piece of clothing as well. This traditional dress saves from the heat and help avoid getting sunburned.

Abaya, Dubai

How to do?

1. You can buy Abaya in those places where Arab people do this - at the markets of old town or in shopping malls. For example you can pop into Saga World shopping centre and here you'll find wide range of abayas from different manufacturers.
2. As a rule abaya is sewed from black cloth, but also you can find colourful traditional dress. There can be abayas embroidered with beads and decorated with sequins.

How much?

The price of national dress starts from 200 dirhams.
