UAE is a swell place and one which is worth a holiday if you have money and want a high-end life. It has some of the best bars and night joints and all you b need is liquid cash and no place in the world can offer you anything better. Man's favorite sport is women and that applies to me as well and I recommend no better place for a freakout anywhere other than Dubai or Abu Dhabi. Here some of the high-end bars run all the night and there is a hefty entrance charge as well. A small pint of canned beer can set you back by $ 12-15, so be ready to pay.
These are the best places to pick or strike a friendship with the higher class of women.Europeans and Russians dominate and Ukraine girls are not far behind. Do you want the company of a Muslim girl? Fine, this is the place, but the Muslim girls you get here are not the locals but the girls who have come from Egypt, Turkey, Syria, Oman, Iran and they are here because of the restrictions at their places. Here there is freedom and they make the most of it. Do not be taken in by the hijab they wear, for they are more mercenary than others and before they undress for you, they will shave your purse and credit card and maybe you will not mind it for a muslim girl is exotic as ever .
I have been to all the top bars here and naming them is not my cup of tea to give them publicity for nothing, but I will say there is one on the 52nd floor of the Hotel Shangrila and having a Chivas at that altitude with your girlfriend can be exotic. A view of the city beckons and there is a lovely girl DJ playing what you like and it can almost be like nirvana. There are at least a dozen such places in the UAE but be careful not to get drunk and drive. That could spoil everything, for the traffic police is not like in India.
One can not think of a safer place than the UAE and Dubai, but Dubai is a little more classy as it has a greater number of rich expatriates. The name of the game is money and if you have it, there is nothing better than the UAE. Yes, tourists also abound and I have been surprised at the number of single women as tourists. Most come for a longish stay and many come to heal their hearts, broken relationships and looking for love. Do they find it? I can not say, but I did once shack up with a Ukrainian girl and my lessons of a joint yoga in the nude as taught by my guru in India did wonder therapy for her.
The UAE is doing great and the best part is that it is just a 3 hr flight from Mumbai and considering the Mumbai- Calcutta flight takes 2.40hr, it looks close. Where to go next for a holiday? You have to decide what you want and all I can say is that Dubai and the UAE is a wonderful place. Live and let live. That's the motto, wish Indians could learn something from the atmosphere here.
If you are in need and want to mend your heart, go to the Mercure resort in the Jebel Hafeet mountains. Drinking a scotch in the exotic bar high up in the mountains is something to savor. I love it and last I was there with my secretary and it turned out to be the most soothing of my time in life.
