Dubai is a fun and frivolous playground on the Persian Gulf, but don’t consider it the Vegas of the Middle East. While this eclectic city is one of the most permissive, relaxed, cosmopolitan destinations in the region, you do have to watch your behavior to some degree. What’s considered appropriate in your home country may be inappropriate if not illegal here, so bone-up on the local rules before visiting. Cross the line and the consequences may be dire. In fact, many a foreigner has been thrown in jail for unwittingly committing an offense. Don’t be alarmed or put off, however. Just adhere to some basic guidelines and cultural sensitivities and you can have a good time without offending anyone or breaking any local laws. Here are 12 definite things not to do when in Dubai. 1. Don’t Do Drugs 2. Don’t Drink in Public 3. No Nudity 4. No Song and Dance 5. Don’t Pucker Up in Public 6. Watch Your Tongue 7. Keep Style Sensible 8. Watch Your Photography 9. Watch Your Wallet 10. Keep Your LGBT Lifestyle on the QT 11. Don’t Eat in Public During Ramadan 12. Don’t Use Your Left Hand And what about your idea?
