31 Extraordinary Things That Are Normal For Locals In Dubai

The City of Gold indeed.

Dubai is one of the most populated cities in the United Arab Emirates. It is also the city where the tallest skyscraper in the world, Burj Khalifa, stands. At 2,717-feet tall, Muslims who observe the fasting month on higher floors actually have to fast a little longer than those on ground floors during the Ramadhan month.

It is a country of gold, mainly because purchasing precious jewelry is cheaper in UAE than in any other country. Tourists can even claim VAT refunds for all their purchases there.

And here are some sights from Dubai that might appear unusual for most tourists, yet, totally normal in the lively city of Dubai.

A traffic of the rich.
