Dubai Gay Guide

Dubai is a central airline hub which is becoming more and more popular with tourists. The city is booming and massive skysrapers are towering up. The Burj Khalifa is the current winner in this race for the stars as the highest point of the world. The observation deck is a popular tourist attraction, like the beaches and Arabic architecture. Dubai has been called "shopping capital of the world", so many exclusive malls tempt the customers to grab their (often loaded) wallet. 

Although homosexuality is officially forbidden, gays can enjoy private gay life in relative comfort compared to other countries in the region. However, showing gay affection in public can lead to penalties or prison, so be careful. Locals claim that Dubai has a interesting underground gay scene. Just ask around... Zinc at the Crowne Plaza is full of cabin crew, so you are very likely to run into gay people there, especially on Thursday nights.Hotels and apartments
