Hi all,

It seems like Dubai is an up and coming city for teaching, but I'm wondering what the nightlife/ social life is like there? What kind of scene is it? Are there a variety of nightclubs and other places where people go or hang out? Would it be very difficult for single white girls there or basically the same as anywhere else?

Any info greatly appreciated!

Thanks...

Here's another link RE Dubai.

For single, white girls, if you can tolerate the leering looks (causing traffic accidents now and then--ha,ha, ha!), the occasional grope, local males trying to follow you around, you should be all right. I've never had anything really bad happen, but it's not the "same as anywhere else", that's for sure.

You might get mistaken for a Russian prostitute now and then, that's why I don't like to go around town by myself if I can help it.

Where are you applying?
