This, that and the other
Tips are not generally expected, but waiters make appallingly low wages, so I'm sure that a small tip is appreciated.
I noticed that I got many, many stares while in Dubai, and I'm not sure if it's simply because I'm a woman, because I'm obviously western, or because my boyfriend is Indian... I didn't feel it was a problem, but it took me a while to get used to. I think it was just curiosity. Since my trip I've spoken to a few middle eastern people and they've explained that it's simply a cultural thing to check one another out. I personally wouldn't choose to wear anything even remotely revealing, just to avoid any extra stares!
Respect the Islamic culture
Even though Dubai is a very modern city and the population is dominated by foreingers, this is still an Islamic country so don't forget to stay respectfully covered when out and about in the city!
Okay, you don't have to be as covered up as the picture shown, but pants and tee-shirts are good!
