Barely a month seems to go by without a story about some hapless tourist or ex-pat running afoul of the myriad laws of the UAE. No kissing in public, no flipping the bird in public, no being drunk in public, no drugs to even be in your system when you arrive – man, this place is harsh. You’re in a country where even Skype is illegal. I (literally) ran into trouble on the Dubai Metro – running for the train is a fineable offence. As is carrying bulky luggage (a bit daft when you consider it goes to the airport) and eating or drinking anything – even water. It doesn’t matter if the air-con is broken and it’s 50°C and your brain is melting. Burn baby burn.Recommended for:

I'd describe the UAE, particularly Dubai and Abu Dhabi, as "where the Middle East meets the West." It's a beautifully fused country of western ideals and influence with a semi-traditional Arab & Muslim culture. It combines high standard Islamic principles with glamor and style.

Since this is my now adopted country now, I can't say enough about it. There is more here than meets the eye or first impressions, make sure to ask lots of people what they suggest for you to do here...it can be tricky to find all the great things here to do. If you love shopping then you can shop till you drop! They to come in late fall or early spring for the best weather if you don't like heat.
