I should be flying to Dubai tomorrow. I will also likely be in Abu Dhabi and Muscat over the coming week. Any shopping tips for a man? Recommended places for non-full price shoes and clothes or full price places that are worth it/that have things only available in the UAE/Oman? How are prices in Dubai compared to other Middle Eastern cities?

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Have fun, even if you aren't paying full price I understand it is still quite expensive to shop there.

Only went to Dubain once back in 2000, but I remember there were some impressive malls and shopping centers. The Dubai Mall is the world's sixth largest mall.

I read just the other day that those man-made islands are sinking and the people who purchased homes on those islands are suing the builders.

They shouldn't be allowed to sue, it should have been pretty obvious what was going to happen from the start.

Bring some chadors back with you, where only your eyes show.

You never know, you may have use for one some day!

Police officer: Could you describe the suspect to me, who robbed your store at gunpoint?

Store Owner: Ummm......Ummm.....Brown eyes.....Black shoes......
