  1. I went to dubai a few months ago , stayed for 2 days and came back .

  2. to give them credit the guy was spying just he was getting paid for it !

  3. Dubai is like a humorless joke or parody of 20th/21st century urbanism

  4. ..it takes risks, and most will say its probably paid off…? I dont think so, this commentator looks like he got paid off himself…

  5. Dubai is like that one guy who goes overboard and buys the most expensive clothing to try and impress everyone, but instead, no one's impressed, no one cares, and everyone knows that he's trying too hard.

  6. Don't break the law if you don't want to wind up in prison. Its that simple.
    Public display of affection is one of the things that are not generally tolerated.

    Tourists should do their research rather than blaming the host country for enforcing the law.

  7. I've been to Abu Dhabi I was a kid though so I don't remember much but both my parents and grandparents have been to Dubai and the stories I heard from them my grandfather told us the taxi driver told him how they treated in dubai where they cramped up in a room and under payed one guy hasn't been home for almost 5-6 years and can't afford a ticket cause of the pay
    Overall the harsh truth is that dubai will treat you like garbage if you not rich like many say dubai is only for the rich

  8. I grew up in the pre boom Dubai and miss those days 🥲

  9. yeah its still an arab muslim country still has the laws of the arabs no cohabitating between men and women who aren't married

  10. DUBAI UAE : HAS LOST ITS REAL FUEL ⛽ LINE THE SALVATION FROM GOD

  12. Why anybody would want to vacation in a theocratic dictatorship defies all logic. Can someone explain it to me, please? Thank you.
