Dubai is full of expats and other foreigners so it's very rare to actually see a gulf Arab wondering around. Obey all the laws. You are only allowed to drink alcohol at certain places where they have a license. Respect the dress code,they usually have a sign telling you what you can't wear in some places like shopping malls. People in Dubai aren't really sweet and lovely,there are extremely rude people out there.

My family and I are going on holiday to Dubai. I'm 16, male. I was wondering, if anyone else has gone on holiday there, how do you make friends with the locals. Would I be better off making friends with other English-speaking people? What are the local customs and how they apply to me as a teenage male? Do I make friends with them the way we do here like:
"Hey, are you on holiday here in Dubai?"
"How do you like it here?"
"Where do you come from?"
"Are you at school?"
"What subjects do you do?"
Is it best to do this at the hotel pool if there are other teenagers without friends over there? Will there be any problems if I attempt to make conversation with girls, since I know that it is a very conservative country?
What tips do people who've been there as a teenager have?
but with local girls i would say be careful as some of them can be very rude
