Here's a handy link to an English translation of the Japanese Wikitravel article which seems to have a lot of content:
Here's the Systranbox version as well:
Note: Be careful not to edit the babelfished version by mistake!
Why are these located here and not on the main page? They will be overlooked as people generally will not look at the discussion page.
To make this is clear as possible: These links are here to help us find information to add to the actual article. This is not part of the guide, and they'll be deleted soon. - Todd VerBeek 18:43, 9 June 2007 (EDT)
Jpatokal: Would be helpful to keep these links here, especially when if someone plans to add more content to the article on Dubai, acting as a good reference point but understand that some are perhaps not the most relevant/apt. By on large, most add value to any authors editing the main document. Why all this nuking? :)
Then I propose a revised list of all of the most relevant and informative sources. "...Wikitravel is not a link farm." Thanks for clearing that up!
Useful site for info
The above is not a government site! Please see http://www.dubai.ae/portal/en.portal?dea_visitors,dae_visitors_accommodations,0,&_nfpb=true&_pageLabel=package -- which is run by the Dubai Government.
Surely something about the draconian drug laws that can lead to a jail sentence even if you have a small speck of cannabis on your shoe or have eaten a poppyseed bagel are worth pointing out here. 188.8.131.52 09:32, 29 February 2008 (EST)
A while back, I added a fairly detailed description of several cases where travelers were imprisoned for those kinds of "crimes" and how human rights groups have tried to intervene and warn travelers who plan to fly into Dubai, but someone deleted what I wrote almost immediately. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 184.108.40.206 (talk • contribs) 08:46, 2008 July 30
Sorry, Jpatokal but I think your wrong. What part of "Roller Coaster" does not make it clear that this is not a "Merry-Go_Round" ? What makes you think the driver will not stop and give you a break if you do start feeling bad ? (Try that on a roller coaster !) And if you do insist on keeping this "Warning", can you at least word it so it does not sound like a five year old whining ? Woodstock 09:45, 27 March 2008 (EDT)
Nothing here on how it's illegal to kiss in public, surely this is extremely important for someone traveling to the state? Just wondering if there's any reason it's not detailed.
As a Dubai resident I would like to clarify - kissing is not "illegal" but necking is! There is a difference and I think it is important to note this! --Shafeeq
Dubai is actually divided into districts or municipalities. Will it be helpful if I add the list of districts? --SnappyHip 14:57, 24 April 2010 (GST)
about the warning note.
The warning note seems to be inappropriate in the article. The article is talking about a city/emirate of UAE. However, the warning note seems to imply the UAE as a whole. I was thinking of moving that warning note from this article to the United Arab Emirates article.--Dark Paladin X 17:00, 4 May 2010 (EDT)
I have noticed the following paragraph:
