G'day!

On the way to the US this year, thought that I might see what all the fuss is about Dubai.

 

Heart stopped when I saw the hotel prices. Anybody been? Any advice much appreciated. Also to sight seeing. Don't need to shop.

 

Thanks and cheers!

Was there about 2 years ago, nothing is cheap and traffic is a absolute nightmare! If you are a member of a awards program with a hotel chain, try them - think I did Marriott. (Get something for that money)

Definitely go to the indoor ski/snow shopping mall, it is a hoot. And see if your hotel can book you a lunch at the Burj Al Arab hotel, you cannot get near the place without a (faxed)invitation and ID / passport. "Underwater" restaurant is fantastic, and hope you have a sense of humor.

number one - and maybe i twill get me tossed off - and not in a good way :) - i hate these format of these forums. they are basically a php or equivilient forum whixh wiukd be great for 1998 or even 2003 bu now we need a bit more - really - this is still thwe number 1 escort review site as of now - bt please - u will easily be taken over by the most basic technology from the last decade. otherwise you will be lost in the dust and everyone will flock to some other escort site. we here have only been lucky that we have not been overtaken by the kudzu of the 2000s.....

 

yes i might have 1 or or 12000 typos, and??????

sorry wait - im totally off topic.... i have heard that yes - dubai and other surrounding arab emirates - other than the saudi emirate - are the hotspots for escorts - male or female. actually more for male since it is evenb more taboo. and yes - two friends of mine have made a fortune by spending 3 months each there. but please remember that these states do "technically" keep "sodomy" as a death penalty punishment. then very very very rarely enforce but it does exist and if you are not discrete and you push your kuck one way or another you could end up in a great deal of trouble - and dont expect the us embassy to bail you out automatically - it will take some time for all the paperwork to come thru.... having said all that - maybe i scared you too much but the fact is my "friends" have been there and it worked out very well - thye point is to be EXTREMELY discrete and all will go well. you will be rewarded for your "business like" manner :)\

Hey there Swallows!

 

I was in Dubai two years ago and I had a riot. I think the town itself has to be taken a bit with a grain of salt... like a bastard child of Vegas and Disneyland with tons and tons of money. Shopping is good, but stick to the things you would not find anywhere else like spices and objects from the region. Jewelry can be cheap if you know what it would cost and are a very very good haggler. Go to the dessert and ride a camel, go to the indoor sky slope and for sure try to book at least one meal at the Burj. I was staying there and if I had to choose I would either go to the underwater restaurant at night or the seafood all you can eat brunch at the rooftop restaurant. (I think that brunch happens only every Thursday, but I don't remember.) I think to remember that you can make a reservation for either restaurant even if you are not staying at the hotel.

 

If you would like to splurge a little I would look at the two hotels beside the Burj. You would have the funky view, the access to all the compound, kickass restaurants and really nice accommodations without having to pay Burj rates.

 

If you are looking for something really lowkey I would stay near the centre of the city, walking distance from the markets and all.

 

The thing that every person visiting Dubai should see (and that should be listed in travel guides as an attraction) is the amazingly hunky, huge, nubian doorman at the Burj.... I have met a few people who stayed there and inevitable they all end up ranting about him. (Straight or not)

 

I really hope you have a riot.

Hey Blu,

 

Even if homosexuality is against all they believe in, Dubai is a very business oriented Emirate and they will respect your choices if you are paying and up to a certain point discreet. I was traveling with a gorgeous redhead and nobody batted an eye. The buttler (the rooms at the Burj come with a buttler... how gay is that?) }( was inside the room at intimate times so even if he didn't get to see any of the action he knew perfectly well what was happenning in there.

 

As for cruising out or getting a local escort I would be very careful. It is still a very repressed society and you could easily get into trouble.

 

Hope this helps, and hope you have a riot!

While there are many places in the world where unmarried heterosexual couples might be denied a hotel room, I cannot think of any, anywhere, where two men cannot check into a hotel room.

 

In Dubai you DEFINITELY can (I've done it).

 

Does anyone know anywhere in the world where you'd have trouble? I can't think of any. Even in places where homosexuality is technically illegal, it is commonplace for men to share hotel rooms.

I think the only time you would likely run into trouble is if you are an older man with a much younger companion who is not apparently related to you. And you ask for a room with one bed. It is probably common for men to stay together on business but I suspect they usually ask for a room with two beds in such cases. It's hard to imagine you would be turned away in too many places, but I think you could expect some raised eyebrows in some more conservative places.
