Dubai: Dress Appropriately and Behave!

“Dubai Executive Council issued a new law prohibiting inappropriate behaviour in public places of the emirate. Such behaviour is nudity, kissing, wearing “disrespectful” clothes and even holding hands. I do respect and welcome Dubai's attempt to protecting its identity and cultural values from any western influence, but could something like that work in Dubai?” asks Mohammad Zaher [1], from Dubai, UAE.
