She was arrested for her crime completely seperate from the rape and the waiter was arrested for the rape.

I wouldnt go this far. Abu Dhabi isn't Sharjah! In general, ALL Muslims should be praying five times a day to Allah. And yes, drinking tea is a must. However, if you cant stand either- than you shouldnt be in the Middle East in general.

I used to live in Dubai and have visited Abu Dhabi many times. Dubai is thee happening place; whereas Abu Dhabi has more life, more true culture. Dubai was meant for the play land of the riches and Abu Dhabi was first established as a city and now trying to compete with Dubai. Traffic is horrible in Dubai, but parking is horrific in Abu Dhabi. Both trying to make the man-made island scene and both are wealthy. When I lived there, Abu Dhabi was actually the more wealthier of the two. This is often mislead in the news due to Dubai's exaggerated lifestyle. Dubai is like Vegas on speed without the gambling and stripclubs, of course. But the nightlife is crazy. Abu Dhabi is a bit stricter but its no Sharjah- and I would prefer to say Adu Dhabi is just a bit more conservative; whereas, Dubai is more contradictory. Dubai screams diversity, as does Abu Dhabi, but I feel Abu Dhabi has more families and culture still left there. The Abu Dhabi national day parade is far better than the national day celebration in Dubai. I think the internet and TV restrictions are about the same. If you are a young professional- I think you will get a quicker opportunity for a job in Dubai- however, Dubai has been going under since early 2009. It definitely got a late start with the economy crisis, but once it hit it hit hard. The thing about Dubai is that the city cannot go round without the richest people in the world vacationing there or having their second/third houses there. Which by the way, research the city's real estate policies. Most of the buildings in like Media City/Jumierah area are free-hold properties. Expats can never truly own property in Dubai.

Thats all I can think about for the time being. Feel free to direct message me if you need more info!

I really enjoyed the feel of Dubai with the international population and all. I liked everything except for how spread out it often seemed. Looks like I'll definitely have to check out Abu Dhabi!
