Dubai: Shopping malls in Dubai have once again urged people to abide by the dress code policy especially during Ramadan, as many visitors remain unaware of the cultural sensitivities of the country.

Malls like The Dubai Mall, the Mall of the Emirates, the City Centre and many others already have put up signboards, flyers, and even LCD screens in a bid to remind people of the mall’s courtesy policies during Ramadan.

Recently, a couple of mall’s guest service representatives and security stuff began handing out visitors entering the mall the flyers with aims of making sure everyone is aware of the mall’s policies and their importance particularly during Ramadan.

According to the Dubai Mall spokesperson in a statement issued to Gulf News, “Most of our visitors are aware of the dress code policy. But given that the city hosts visitors from around the world – some of them not aware of the cultural sensitivities of the country – we take extra care in highlighting the mall’s courtesy policy for the benefit of all.” More info
