  1. Our longest video yet!!! We thought about splitting this into two videos but decided to keep it together! Let us know what you think and thanks for watching 👍🙏

  2. man its so impressive to see how vast the dessert is! Great video as always guys

  3. THAT PLACE MIGHT BE OKAY IF YOU WANTED TO BLOW SAY 10 MILLION ON AN ENTERTAINMENT AND SHOPPING TRIP, THERE ARE A FEW THINGS THAT BUG ME ABOUT DUBAI, I'VE HEARD THEY PAY THE LABOR ON THOSE BUILDING PROJECTS LIKE A DOLLAR A DAY, I'D BE CURIOUS HOW THAT WORKS, WITH THE UNIONS IF ANY AND SO ON AND THEY'VE ALSO GOT SOME STRANGE ANTIQUATED LAWS WHICH ARE KIND OF SCARY.

    ANYWAY, I WONDER HOW THEY HANDLE SHOPPING, DO YOU JUST PLACE AN ORDER AND DO THEY HAVE SHIPPING CHOICES FROM THE STORES, BECAUSE LUGGING THAT STUFF AROUND WOULD BE CRAZY, I'M GUESSING SHOPPING MALLS IN THE US HAVE ALSO WORKED THAT ISSUE OUT

  4. Keep it up guys, great work, we'll join you on international travel once we're done with vanlife, let's meet up somewhere in Southeast Asia next year 👋

  5. Mad idea – some You Tubers have Patreon accounts – you need to work out a way we can donate our credit card 'Points' to you 🙂 … you seem to be so good at using them 😉

  6. Great video, couple questions. How difficult was it driving over there? Same as US? Was it pricey for the excursions you took and meals? Any language barriers?

  7. You guys are the best! So here are my thoughts on todays video…. 1). I wonder why NJ / NYC can’t upgrade our infrastructure like this. 2). How outdated is NYC compared to this playground!?!! 3). Is it safe for Americans? Were there any issues that weren’t on film that made you both feel unsafe?

  8. Beautiful places. Thanks you for sharing. Stay safe.

  9. Carvings up the dunes is my kind of fun.
    Looks like the 2 of you were checking out all the sites.
    Definitely a thumbs up 👍

  10. This looks like a fun trip! Really enjoying your videos so far. Don't know if anyone else commented this yet (I didn't see it) but that first performance at 21:21 is a whirling dervish. I spent a lot of summers in Egypt and they have the same performers there. Friday is Prayer day, so typically places can be closed for the day or at least a portion of the day. UAE weekend is Friday/Saturday and most people have Fridays off so places will be much busier, especially with locals on those days.

  11. Great video as always! Friday in the Middle East is similar to how Sunday's are (or used to be) seen in the Western world. (Traditionally Christian cultures have Sunday as their day of rest/worship – in Islam that day is a Friday).

  12. Looks like an amazing trip guys! Cool kids always sit in the back 😉🤣 The tea shop would totally be our jam!

  13. We enjoyed watching your treks through the mall and along all the vendor street shops, but alas no WaWa to be found… so sad! 😂

    Did you buy either of the head wrap scarf turbans? We would have….

    Dune bashing looked awesome! We still prefer when one of you are doing the driving. As in the episodes along the road that lead to Nine Palms
    along the East Cape of Baja or the road to Flora Farms!

    Dubai Frame and sand boarding segments were great. Too bad time did not allow for you to explore the marina area a bit more..

    Overall a great visual journey… NICE JOB!

  14. what credit card do you use to get all of these points?

  15. We like the longer videos! I (Tyler) have always wanted to hit up Dubai since I’m a huge sports car fanatic haha so loved seeing those! By far our favorite part of the video was the emotional support Brad Pitt in the bathroom 😂😂😂 great video guys!

  16. What a wonderful trip!! Taylor you were so polite to those hagglers, I wouldn't have so much patience! Very interesting to see Dubai, great job on the video 🙂

  17. Sandalwood is facing extinction world as old forests are being decimated congratulations on helping it on its way to oblivion. And would anyone enjoy tearing up sand dunes that over many hundreds of thousands years old and contain unique fauna that are also on the verge of extinction. Welcome to fun in Dubai 😢

  18. Great one and like long vlogs! Glad coming along to see your next countries up to the 30th👏🏻🙏🏻

  19. was this recorded before dubai expo 2020 opened oct 1st?? that's a bucket list event!

  20. Wow what a fun packed episode. What a beautiful country. Looking forward to next weeks one x

  21. Such a beautiful futuristic city! Curious you didn’t show or discuss much the restaurant food you ate. How was it and what did you have? And what about prices at the restaurants and the Mall and market? Do they serve alcohol at the restaurants?

  22. So unoriginal. At least try showing something that hasn’t already been shown a thousand times.

  23. Great video, which company did you use to rent car and was it difficult driving there?

  24. pro tip (lived here for 30+ years) : Dont visit a desert city in the summer. Visit during winter, you'll have a better time in dubai.

  25. Watching you mess about with your masks is so irritating – just wear them properly 🤦🏻‍♀️

  26. Ohhhh yeahhhhh Portugal represent…. Mal ouvi o nome Inês e Patrícia deu logo pra ver que eram tugas…altamente

  27. We were in Dubai in 2014, stayed at the Haytt. Did the mall, the Burge Kalafia at sun set and then the fountain show, yes it was amazing. But the highlight of our trip was the desert safari, we were in 4wheele drive vehicles in the middle of the desert then a dinner, drinks and camel rides. Did Traylor buy any silk scarves while there, my wife must have bought 20+. Will return again sometime and stay in Marina City.

  28. Great video. Btw Friday for Muslims is like Sunday for Christians so you’ll find everything either closed or half open.
