Culture in UAE, Dubai

UAE, Dubai is a unique example of tolerance between people of different beliefs, nationality and culture. Dubai is politically and economically stable, and is extremely tolerant of western cultures and practices. Whilst Islam is the official religion, the UAE recognises the right to worship of other faiths, and there are many churches and other religious assembly points across the city. Women’s rights are equal to those of men, and females are not expected to cover up – in fact bikini-clad women are a regular sight on Dubai beaches. However, cultural sensibilities do prevail and hence overly revealing clothes are frowned upon.
