If there are ANY place in the world where you should wear shiny gold trousers, it should be in Dubai! Because, a) you don’t stand out from all the other shiny golden stuff and b)they are awesome and so is Dubai. During the day, we spent most of our time walking around in the mall which obviously had aircon and therefore pants were perfect. During the night it can get a bit chilly so if you are planning to spending your day in some of the malls or other indoor activities it’s actually a good idea to wear pants even though the temperature sometimes go above 30 degrees.
I wore them the first day we arrived when we to the Madinat souk near the famous Burj Al Arab Hotel. It was a bit of a drive from our hotel, but what you need to know when you go to Dubai is that it’s sooo big, so nothing is within walking distance. Living in a small city, it always surprise me when you just can’t walk to your end destination. Even walking to the mall of Dubai, which is literally across the street from our hotel took 10 minutes simply because the roads are so large. So, ad word of advice is not to plan too much during the day because you will end up spending a lot of time going to these places.
