The culture of Dubai is rooted in Islam, but globalisation and immigration has transformed the Emirate into a melting pot of diverse nationalities over the past 50 years.

The influence of traditional Arab culture is still prominent in its museums, festivals, and attire. Generosity and hospitality are the most highly prized virtues in the Arab world, and tourists are welcomed with utmost affection and friendliness. Since 2006, the weekend in Dubai has been shifted to Friday - Saturday, as a token of respect for Friday's holiness to Muslims and as an overlap with the Western world's weekend of Saturday and Sunday. Although Dubai's society is open to all cultures, it is important for tourists to respect Muslim traditions.
